ESPNer DIDN’T BELIEVE IN PURPLE JESUS BEFORE BIG DAY: Matthew Berry was so worried about Adrian Peterson.
THE BIG LEAD notes that the ESPN fantasy football analyst had concerns about how well the Vikings running back would do that weekend.From Berry’s article last week about AP, under his heading “I’m officially worried about…”:
“It’s not as if he didn’t get the ball plenty. But his 20 carries were good enough for only 70 yards, and he gets the strong run defenses of the Chargers, Packers and Giants in three of the next four.”
The following Sunday, Peterson went on to chew up an NFL- record 296 yards against the San Diego D, making many Vikes fans and fantasy owners very, very happy.
Maybe Berry should be officially worried about his own predictions.
