AP at QB? We're not sure he's ever thrown a football

Everyone wants to know who's starting at quarterback for the Vikings on Sunday. Will it be Sam Bradford or will it be Shaun Hill?

Running back Adrian Peterson had a little fun with reporters Thursday, joking that he's been warming up his shoulder in hopes that he gets the nod to start at QB.

That got us thinking: has Peterson ever thrown a pass?

Not in the NFL he hasn't.

In 121 career games he's 0-for-0 with 0 yards, 0 touchdowns and 0 interceptions. The same goes for his three-year college career at Oklahoma.

Trust us. We've looked and we can't find any evidence of Peterson throwing a football. In fact, he's never thrown out a first pitch at a Twins game. The only photo we can find of him throwing something is a bowling ball.

But who cares. As SB Nation joked, starting Peterson at quarterback is the perfect plan to beat Green Bay.

"Just put in an extra offensive lineman and get this tank rolling downhill. And when the Packers load up to stop it, have Peterson just throw it as far as he can and see if someone like Stefon Diggs or Adam Thielen can get behind the defense."
