New York, NY, United States (4E Sports) – Minnesota Vikings’ Adrian Peterson laughed off the assertion of Philadelphia Eagles’ LeSean McCoy of being the best running back in the NFL.
McCoy, who led the NFL in rushing last season, responded, “Yes sir,” when asked whether he was the league’s best running back during an interview with ESPN.
Peterson found McCoy’s reaction funny because he hesitated and didn’t seem to believe it when he said it.
“He didn’t really mean it,” said Peterson said.
But the Vikings star said there is nothing wrong with McCoy having self-confidence and that he gives him credit for this.
McCoy acknowledged that he is a “big fan” of Peterson’s but said that the latter gets the best running back label based on reputation.
