“Just As Violent As He Was”October 23rd, 2012
“No. he doesn’t [look a step slower], just as violent as he was before he got hurt, as far as the type of runner he is. He looks like he would prefer to run through guys, not necessarily over ‘em, but run through tackles. He can make you miss, as you know, and run away from you as well. But, yeah, he looks as good as I’ve seen him.” — Bucs defensive coordinator Bill Sheridan on Vikings RB Adrian Peterson today.
The Bucs allow 3.1 yards per carry, best in the NFL.
Peterson is averaging 4.8 yards per carry and has 652 rushing yards and 22 receptions in seven games.
This should be a hell of a lot of fun to watch.
