I know a good majority of the masses are creatures of the moment but I remember a similar buzz around CJ in the 09 season as AD is getting this year. Judge by their overall seasons and not just conclude because a player recovered from an injury (please).

*Bold signifies more

Chris Johnson (2009) 16 games:

358 carries: 2,006 yards rushing
5.6 YPC
14 TD's

50 receptions
503 yards receiving
10.1 avg.
2 TD's
3 fumbles/ 3 lost

2,509 YFS
16 total TD's

Adrian Peterson (2012) 16 games:

348 carries: 2,097 yards rushing
6.0 YPC
12 TD's

40 receptions
217 yards receiving
5.4 avg.
1 TD
4 fumbles/ 2 lost

2,314 YFS
13 total TD's

Overall, who would you consider had the better season for their year? IMO it's very close.

All around, Chris Johnson probably had a more impressive season. But Peterson's season gets held above everyone else's because of the injury.

statistically they look closer than they really are imo. CJ's season was an amazing display of speed and big play ability. When you look at his best games (as far as YPC) they usually include a play or two of 30+ yards and then a bunch of okay runs. I don't mean that to diminish him because he's still a great back and that was still an all time great season.

Peterson's season was a display of everything great about a running back from speed to power to vision to the ability to break off tackles to YAC etc. It was an amazing season.

Adrian Peterson gets this. AP is a more impressive runner and he single handedly carried them to the playoffs. CJ team went 0-6 the first six games then won 7/8 the next and missed the playoffs. AP is a not a pass catcher he is a pure runner

I think Johnson had the more impressive year as a total package. It's not just anybody that shatters Marshall Faulk's YFS record.

However, AP put on a superior pure rushing performance.

CJ's season. 2500 yfs and 16 TDs is the high water mark. Peterson came very close.

CJ had the better all-around season but AP coming off a serious knee injury may be more impressive.

Modern sports medicine gets better and better every day. I think the whole knee thing is getting a tad overplayed. Thomas Davis has shredded the same knee three times and just came back this season and looked better than ever.

Obviously the players dedication in rehab is admirable. But the knee, surgically repaired or not, clearly wasnt an issue. I am more impressed with the level of expertise of the surgeon and the physical therapy department than I am, necessarily, of the players post-injury performance.

I am sure I will get torn to pieces for that opinion because people love a good story. But there it is. At what point do we stop slobbering over the returns of the Wes Welkers, Adrian Petersons and Thomas Davis' and just accept that while theyre a nice motivational story, they shouldnt be surprises to anyone anymore?

I agree, you can add in Jamal Lewis who blew out both his knees and still had a 2K season - and that was about 10 years ago.

AP because of his injury

If there was no injury, i think it makes CJ's season more impressive

I am a sucker for all-purpose yards.......but what Peterson did was amazing.

I will say AD.....but barely.
