Packers bar trash talks Adrian Peterson over rushing record (Picture)
NFC North rivals Green Bay and Minnesota will meet in the playoffs Saturday, and matters are so intense even sports bars are getting in on the trash talk.
The Stadium View Bar and Grille located on 1963 Holmgren Way in Green Bay has placed two signs on its property taunting Vikings running back Adrian Peterson. One sign is hanging inside the bar while the other is outside it. Both say, “Adrian, this is what 9 yards look like,” which is a jab at AD for coming nine yards short of breaking the single-season rushing record.
Peterson still rushed for 2,097 yards on the season — which is the second-most all time — and two of his three highest totals came against the Packers. He rushed for 210 yards in the first game, and 199 in the second. The Packers have vowed to hold him below 200 yards in the third meeting between the teams.
Eric Dickerson still happily holds the single-season record with 2,105 yards.
