I thought this was interesting. What's he gonna be like if he keeps that speed but starts trucking guys even harder? Scary.

Adrian Petersonís wish to add weight isnít coming to fruition yet. He said Wednesday at Winter Park that he still weighs about the same as he did last season, despite the desire to increase to 225 pounds or so.

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson (http://min.scout.com/a.z?s=63&p=8&c=1&nid=4176315) is still trying to gain weight, but so far fans donít need to be concerned about him ballooning up and losing quickness. Months after him first talking about his weight-gain goals, Peterson is still at his listed weight from last year, he said.

Peterson was listed at 217 last year and said Wednesday at Winter Park that he is still about 216 or 217 pounds.

ďJust working with (Tom) Kanavy, our strength and conditioning coach, really Iím just trying to put the weight on in the right places Ė 225, God-willing, would be pretty good for me. Iíve got a month or two to work with (before training camp), so weíre gradually trying to meet that mark,Ē Peterson said after conducting a Punt, Pass and Kick clinic for about 50 Special Olympians at Winter Park.

Peterson said heíd like to add muscles to his thighs and ďup topĒ to deliver more punishing hits this year, but, unlike many who hear of his goals, he isnít concerned that gaining weight would impede his quickness.

ďNot a concern at all. I hear it a lot, but my mindset and how I view things is totally different from a lot of people,Ē he said. ďIíve come to understand that and recognize that. I feel I can do anything I put my mind to. Letís say for instance I wanted to get up to 245, I feel like I could get up to 245, keep my quickness and my speed and not lose anything. It comes from hard work, so I feel like I can reach (the goal) and I can keep the speed and everything thatís made me successful so far.Ē

Peterson said his weight-gain goal isnít about his diet as much as it is about doing the exercises that build the muscle in the right places.

ďItís not exactly what you eat. The things you put in your body are important too, but itís doing the proper training Ė squats, single-leg squats, running hills, things like that that helps build your leg muscles,Ē he said. ďI wish there was some type of food you could eat to just build your legs. Iíd be all on it.Ē

Peterson played in all 17 games last year, but he seemed non-committal when asked about the possibility of an expanded regular season. NFL owners are talking about eliminating one or two preseason games and replacing them with an addition regular-season contest or two.

ďItís a long season and thereís wear and tear on your body, so to add two games, Iím sure they would take away the preseason games, but itís clearly not the same because the starters are going to be playing those two additional games. Ö A longer season, if thatís what they decide, then so be it,Ē he said.

What's with Claythan's unholy lust for players who are made by their O-Line? Star players are the guys carrying the ball. The guys making the plays are the ones in the trenches.

Do you see a lot of football fans with unholy lust for offensive linemen? Because I haven't noticed many.

No, but I don't see many people with an unholy lust for football players in general.

Of course, because OU's defense falling for a hook and ladder, two tailback/receiver option passes, and a Statue of Liberty play on a two point conversion were clearly all his fault.

The dude is the best back in football, and he didn't look like he was giving love taps to defenders last season. If he becomes a more impactful runner with the additional muscle, look the fuck out.

His nickname is 'All Day', for what it's worth. Hence AD. Though depending on who you ask, 'Adrian Peterson' could very well come to stand for 'In the year of our Lord'.

I imagine he just start the season heavier. He will probably lose weight throughout the entire season and end up back at 217.

Too bad he's being wasted in Minnesota. He'll probably have to retire early due to running on turf most of his career.

the surface is field turf now, like 1/3 or more of the league uses in their stadiums.

a 5 year study published in the American Journal of Sports Medicine found that injury rates were similar on natural grass and synthetic turf.
