Each day Bobby and I receive a show sheet which is basically a list of the guest that are scheduled to appear on the show for that day.  And of course certain names bring more interest than others.

Earlier this week the name Adrian Peterson showed up on the list of guest and quite naturally Bobby and I were both very excited to get our first interview with the future Hall of Fame RB.  Folks let me say this, there are interviews that standout, stand alone and others than seemingly don’t have much of a leg to stand on.  But after talking for nearly 10 minutes with Adrian Peterson, if I’m a Saints Fan, I’m fired up!

“You know you’ll hear people say how much does he have left, can he still play at a high level and things like that.  All I know is I’m looking forward to helping the Saints Offense become the best we can be.”

You could easily hear the passion, excitement and how eager Adrian is to get back on the field.  If Saints Fans were looking to see what kind of mindset Peterson would have coming to New Orleans, I would say that Who Dats you should be very optimistic about Peterson joining the Black and Gold. 

Bobby and Deke spoke with Peterson getting the veteran RB’s take on his long successfully stint with the Vikings, how he has been able to overcome major injuries.  And Peterson was asked why he decided to come to the Saints.

“I wanted to be with a team that can compete.  I did a lot of research, looked at many numbers and I just felt like New Orleans was the best place for me,” Peterson said.  Adrian praised the Saints Organization for how he was treated during the free agent process.  And #28 said that he’s gotten nothing but a lot of Black and Gold love from the Who Dat Nation.

“From the time my feet touched the ground when I got off the plane, the Who Dat Nation has been kind to me and they are excited about the season.”
