Adrian Peterson, the way he came back from knee surgery is impressive.

Probably Ray Rice. I think he is the most versatile running back in the league, but there are a lot of RB's that are similar. I really like the kid.

That upsets me. When I go to the hall of fame, and see my wrist band and I am called an Indianapolis colt...That is not right. That part belongs to Baltimore.

HAHAHAHA. We were happy to get rid of Bob Irsay. It took us a while to convince Art Modell to move the Browns to Baltimore. And I was particularly happy because I got to the commentary for the Ravens.

edit: I'm sorry for all the enemies I have made in Cleveland now, but Art was my friend, and I stand by him.

We are told to keep our act clean, but there was many time I wanted to say, "he knocked the shit out of him!"

Yes, today's running backs are bigger, stronger, and faster....but the guys from back in the day would still be competitive.

1 horse sized duck.

Even after all of this, I wouldn't trade the experience of playing in the National Football League.

It was a challenge, being a running back and last man standing as a player that had any experience at QB in college. I was sort of forced into and didn't have a any choice. it was the biggest challenge for me in my football career.

When the NFL Films came out with 10 most versatile players that have ever played in the NFL, and I ended up at number 10.
