I'm a firm believer in having confidence, and there aren't many people that have the right to be cocky. Unfortunately, Adrian Peterson is one of them.

Recently, the 30 year-old Minnesota Vikings' running back told the Star Tribune that if today he were to hang up his cleats, he would be in the Football Hall of Fame at this moment.

"I'm going to be blunt and honest with you," Peterson said. "I feel like if I didn't play another snap in my life, I got the opportunity to go in the Hall of Fame right now."

AP not only came back from an ACL surgery in nine months, but the former MVP award winner has six Pro Bowls under his belt, holds numerous records, and despite some difficult off-the-field instances, is still believed to be the number one overall pick in fantasy leagues for the 2015 fantasy football season.

Needless to say his attitude about the Hall of Fame can be backed up with numbers. He even calls himself the "greatest player."

"Not just the greatest running back,"says Peterson. "The greatest player."

Before we let this go to his head, Peterson was brought back down to Earth with a compliment to Deion and Barry Sanders.

"It's Deion and probably Barry Sanders at the top," Peterson said. "I say Deion because he played offense, defense and special teams. And he was great at everything he did. Well, maybe not so much at receiver."

Those are some tough cleats to fill, Adrian, but if you're going to be competing as the best, you have to defeat the best.
