Adrian Peterson's latest comments indicate dissatisfaction with playing time

Adrian Peterson's latest comments indicate dissatisfaction with playing time”

Peterson was filmed staring intently at his coach and yelling something at him which the running back said via Twitter was him encouraging Payton to "run it up their donkey" although in the clip he used a different word.

New Orleans Saints running back Adrian Peterson looked very upset at one point during their 29-19 Monday night loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Peterson will need the Saints to get leads so he can salt away the clock in the second half.

Peterson also acknowledged what appeared to be a heated moment between he and Saints head coach Sean Peyton during the game. "So we'll see how things [go] this week".

But Peterson, who has 11,765 career rushing yards, has been making his case for a larger role when the New England Patriots come to New Orleans on Sunday, live on Sky Sports Main Event. "But unfortunately that's the way the game played out", Peterson told reporters Thursday.

Surely, the fact Peterson was playing against his former team added to the drama, and he says he's looking back on the sideline situation with Payton with levity. "So I'm not that type of guy. Just whenever it's in my hands, I know that's an opportunity to take it to the house". Still, finding a way to keep Ingram, Peterson and Kamara happy won't be easy for Payton, and the Vikings game was evidence of that.

But Peterson said he understood why it became such a viral internet sensation under the circumstances - and he actually had some fun with it.

"Being the competitor that I am, you always hope for more", Peterson said. And I still am to this day, it's amusing", said Peterson, who said his personal favorite was one that included a voiceover from Denzel Washington in the movie "Training Day" saying something like, "You guys gonna turn your back on me?!
