Saints’ Adrian Peterson: Doubt about age puts ‘chip’ on my shoulder

Age is but a number, and Adrian Peterson is ready to prove that to the world this season with the Saints.

Despite managing just 72 yards on 1.9 yards per carry last season before Ravens Cheap Jerseys going down with another major knee injury, Peterson, 32, thinks he can be a major factor in New Orleans’ backfield this season.

Guess which play was used prominently near the start of the presentation.

“All of a sudden, one of the first plays to appear on the screen was the Music City Mistake,” Phillips wrote (via ProFootballTalk). “They didn’t just show the play, but San Jose Sharks Cheap Jerseys they also said it was an example of ‘why we’ve got good officiating’ in the NFL. I couldn’t believe it. None of us could. …

“That really made me mad. Every coach in that room was fuming. As far as I was concerned, our meeting was over,” Phillips wrote. “‘Turn it off!’ I said. ‘We don’t want to see that. First of all, it’s wrong. And for you to sit there and say it’s right is wrong. You need to get out of here right now.’”

Phillips, of course, took responsibility for his team not being prepared for the call — but still maintains Titans tight end Frank Wycheck threw an illegal forward pass on the play. So, it’s easy to see why he’d be mad at NFL officials who brought up a play still fresh in the minds of the Bills coaching staff.
