1. Adrian Peterson Prediction– At this point, it’s hard to count Adrian Peterson out to do anything. The Vikings running back bounced back incredibly from a brutal knee energy to have the best season of his career last year. Peterson is considered by many to be the best running back and players in the game, and there are few that are more confident in his abilities then Peterson himself.
In a recent interview, Peterson said that he feels that the incredible career rushing record held by Emmitt Smith is within his reach, and he believes he can catch him. In fact, he has done the math, and figured out what week he will break it: Week 16 of 2017. It’s worth nothing that this prediction shows that AP believes he can run for over 1,900 each year for the next four years. I’ve followed Peterson since his senior year of high school, and I’ve always thought he was the best athlete in football. His size and speed is unmatched, not just in today’s game, but in the history of the league. The sky is literally the limit for this star back.
2. Brandon Jennings Trade-Remember that time a few years ago when Brandon Jennings was looking to be the next huge star in the NBA? Well that title is now being filled by the likes of Stephen Curry, while a guy like Jennings has produced marginal stats filled with missed shots and subpar games. Well the once future star has now been given a new chance to get his career started as he has been traded to the Detroit Pistons. In return, the Bucks will get guard Brandon Knight, forward Khris Middleton and center Slava Kravtsov. The Bucks have clearly moved on, and figured they should get something while they can for him. Meanwhile, the Pistons, who are currently rebuilding, have just picked up a key piece to a potential return to the playoffs.
