I never really understood this logic as support for Peterson. So assuming Peterson didn't play they have a few wins and he turns them into a mediocre team sqeaking into the playoffs that got blown out in the first game.
Now look at Manning and he took a mediocre 8-8 team that barely squeaked into the playoffs to a team that is the number one seed and superbowl favorites.
Now reading those two statements which do you think sounds more impressive? Raising your team to mediocre status or raising your team to elite status and superbowl favorites? I don't know about you, but the choice to me is simple.
