Adrian Peterson thinks Saints D was playing dirty

A week after a Tennessee player accused New Orleans' D of playing dirty, Peterson does the same. (US PRESSWIRE)

By Ryan Wilson

After missing three games with a high-ankle sprain, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson returned to the lineup Sunday against the Saints to carry the ball 10 times for 60 yards. But following Minnesota's 42-20 loss, Peterson suggested that New Orleans cornerback Jabari Greer intentionally twisted his ankle one play before he ripped off a game-high 39-yard run.

"I came into the game kind of expecting that coming back from a high ankle sprain," Peterson said, according to the Times-Picayune. "Guys are going to try to take their shots when we're on the pile and try to twist it up and things like that.  "I felt like it kind of got overboard. I got up and kind of got in his face. Thank God I was able to keep my composure."

This comes a week after Tennessee wideout Nate Washington accused New Orleans safety Roman Harper of being a dirty player after he grabbed Damian Williams' facemask.

"Honestly, he's a dirty player," Washington said after their Week 14 meeting. "We watched film on [Harper], he's dirty. And I don't appreciate it, I'm going to step out in public and say it: He's dirty. That was dirty what he did, it's unfortunate that he grabbed the facemask -- at the same time you don't walk over a guy and nudge him with your knee. You don't do that. That's dirty. And honestly, that's a dirty player, flat out. This is not just one game. He's been doing it all season. And I'm tired of it. I hope the league did something about it."

During his Monday press conference, Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said that Peterson came out of the Saints game "fine," which is more than we can say for the Vikings' season.

Adrian Peterson thinks Saints D was playing dirty

OK NOMAN:

You tell me, what company IS NOT MAKING money of the backs of its employees.  GET REAL!!!!

PERHAPS you have NO CLUE.  The fact that I made is that AP has made ridiculous moronic statements and you obviously buy into his garbage.  I am TOO levelheaded to drink ANY koolaid AP offers after his statement.  However, you are drinking it full tilt.  AP can walk away from football today.  No master threatening to kill him if he walks.  Number two, tell these whining players to quit wasting their cash and invest in a league of their own.  Let them put up the capital up front for owning and running a business.

To compare athletes PLAYING A FREAKING GAME to slavery is akin to saying that the Boston Strangler was a little misunderstood individual with too much time on his hand.  It is like saying Native Americans just had bad land rights agreement representatives.  I GUARANTEE YOU, THERE IS NOT ONE SLAVE THAT WOULD NOT HAVE GLADLY TRADED PLACES WITH ANY MODERN DAY NFL ATHLETE. 

Of course we are all slaves.  All companies and businesses make money of the backs of their employees.  BUT if you expect me to feel sorry for or even believe in the least that the whining of an overpaid egomaniac is valid you are barking up the wrong tree. 

AP  has made ridiculous statements in the past.  NOT ONE OF HIS COACHES OR TEAMMATES have come to his defense.  THINGS THAT MAKE YOU GO HMMMMM.   Maybe, just maybe, he is not telling the truth.  Maybe, just maybe he is overstating something that happened.  After all, all slaves made millions of dollars for master.  All slaves could demand better pay.  All slaves could hold out after signing a contract.  All slaves boarded a ship in West Africa to chase their dream of slavery.  MORONIC!!!!

CBS Sports Adrian Peterson's Points are gone

Adrian Peterson thinks Saints D was playing dirty

ok WHODAT

are you saying that Peterson complaining about the "NFL" treating players like slaves compares with players being dirty and deliberately trying to cause injury to one another?  say what?  there's no comparison, my friend. The NFL does treat players like slaves. Goodell and his clan are all sitting back getting "dirty" rich off their backs, and part of the riches come from the fines they impose on the players when they DO play dirty. Just ask James Harrison, for one.  All AP is complaining is about someone using a "dirty" tactic; twisting the ankle they know is already hurt. Last I checked, twisting an ankle when a player is down is not part of tackling.  Perhaps you don't know the difference.

Again the main point is missed, and that point is that Peterson is LYING about the foot twisting (just watch the play, it clearly never happens lol).  A frustrated player with a well-documented past of whining and complaining simply made some stuff up to excuse hsi poor performance.  Nothing more to this story than that.

" 3 vikings fined by the league because of illegally grabbing facemasks, yet harper is the only saint i know of to be fined, it is amazing how many hypocrites you can point out just by googling "fined for facemask penalty" lmao "

Thats besides the POINT here.Undecided


Its not about  the players flagged and fined.Its about the players that commit the crime, and get a pass! No Flags!
 Yes some teams get a pass on this and other "kill" shots on NFL players.

I expect Detroit will be watched very close, where ever they vist in the Post season.
On the Road Det/NO will get a flag on all fasemask infractions imo. 1 2 3 OR 4 FINGERS in the grill, will bring out  the laundry.Cool

Its only fair.

Adrian Peterson thinks Saints D was playing dirty

buccs:

You need not reply; I am done with you.  You ARE a moron.  This is for multiple reasons.

1.  A city need not be below sea level to be devestated by a hurricane.  See Homestead, Fl circa 1992 - Hurricane Andrew.  See Hurricane Ivan circa 2004 Pensacola, Fl.  Homestead is only 7 feet above sea level.  Pensacola is over 100 feet above sea level - twice the elevation of Tampa.  Biloxi, Mississippi has been hit twice - Katrina and Camille.  Both decimated Biloxi - all of it, and it is over 30 feet above sea level.

2.  I specifically said that I live in Florida.  Of course, why should a little thing like facts get in the way? I seriously doubt your ability to read & fully comprehend with stupid stuff you type.  Why do you hate New Orleans?  Because the Saints have owned the creamsicle bucs over recent years.  Is it because you went to Mardi Gras and no girl was drunk and/or desperate enough to give you the time of day?

3.  You wanting people to die does not make you a bad person.  You being who and what you are makes you a bad person.    &nbs

Adrian Peterson thinks Saints D was playing dirty

I can't say that I have watched every game the Saints have played, but I am not surprised that Roman Harper has been tabbed as a dirty player. He made several unflagged leading with the crown of the helmet hits on the Bears way back in Week Two, one of which knocked Earl Bennett out of commission for several weeks.

I'm completely shocked to hear that Adrian Peterson is whining about something. He's never, ever done that before. [/sarcasm]
