What’s that? You were wondering exactly how many days until the start of the NFL season? Well, you’re in luck! We here at the Triangle are set to spend the next three months providing a daily reason to get excited about pro football’s return.

I’m pretty sure the video says everything, but in case you forgot, here’s Adrian Peterson’s 2012, coming back from a shredded knee and with a sports hernia: 2,097 yards, 12 rushing touchdowns, 131.1 yards per game, 6.0 yards per carry, 3.93 yards per carry after contact, 44 broken tackles, 40 runs of 15 or more yards, and the most not-surprised-by-anything-he-does season a running back has had since I’ve been alive.

Just a reminder, Adrian Peterson is Wolverine.
