Minnesota Vikings All-Pro RB Adrian Peterson joined Jay Mohr Sports on Tuesday and we asked him about LeSean McCoy's comments proclaiming himself as the NFL's best running back.
Mohr: “Eagles running back LeSean McCoy said yesterday he’s now the best running back in the NFL. You were actually watching the show when he made those comments.....what was your reaction? Did you just laugh on your couch, or did you bang out some push ups, saying ‘I’m coming for you?'"
Peterson: “(Laughing) It was funny because when Stephen A. (Stephen A. Smith) asked him the question, he kind of hesitated, and he didn’t believe it when he said it. I tell the youngsters, 'Say it with your chest, like you mean it!”
Mohr: “So you’re saying he said it, but he didn’t really mean it?”
Peterson: “He didn’t really mean it. If you watched his response (he didn’t mean it). I’ve got to give the young guy credit because there is nothing wrong having confidence in yourself. But, you’ve got to speak with more truth. He’s a heck of a running back and I like his style, so I won’t get on him too much.”
