Cunningham had a great year, but the problem he had was the perception that he just heaved numerous jump balls to Randy Moss who made great catches vs. Randall making great throws.
And Peterson would've had the all time record if he'd gotten anywhere close to TD's carries. He was like 7 yards shy with 44 carries less. TD might've sat a lot but he also had a lot of carries. As long as Peterson had less carries and more yards, the "he could've had more yards" is a useless argument completely.
