    Who Would be Easier to Tackle???

    A few months ago, my friends and I got into a pretty heated debate that still has not quite stopped. One of my friends said that if given the chance, they would rather have the opportunity to tackle Adrian Peterson in the open field as opposed to tackling Chris Johnson because he felt that he had the better chance of bringing AD down. Lets remember that he is just an average joe and quite frankly has about a 0% chance of taking either down. To me it was ridiculous to say that, but what do you guys think? Who would you think would be the easiest to tackle out of the two?

    AD would be easier simply because he's not as shifty. If you can manage to get some kind of wrap on his leg and he gets caught just right, he's going down.

    That said, I'd rather be hit full on by CJ than AD...lol

    Difficult... Do I want my ankles broken or get knocked on my back? I think I'll take AD (who is still extremely fast), because AD will try to overpower me and by some luck that contact may cause him to somehow slip.

    If I could get my hands on him, I think that I would take Johnson, however, I dont think I could. If it came down to open field I would take AP, I dont think he is a crafty, but he runs hard,so I could at least try to tacke him, doesnt mean I succede.

    LOL at any of you thiking Peterson is easier to tackle. CJ has like 1 or 2 homeruns a game, everything else is him get just stuffed right away.

    Give me CJ, yeah he might run by me, but if he doesn't at least I have a chance at bringing him down. With Peterson he would just bulldose right over me, the chance of tackling him is 0%.

    Okay, 1 out of 1000 tries I might be able to slow down CJ. Peterson would run through any of us without missing a beat 1000/1000 times. AD is a freaking beast.

    Edit-What Neon Deion said, except I think he undersold CJ a little bit.

    I think if I tried to tackle an AP going full speed my head would pop off. I'd rather take my chanes with CJ.

    None of us would be able to bring down either of them. Chris Johnson would run right past every one of us, and Peterson would just run right over us.

    The question is who's easier to tackle, not who's easier to catch, and the answer to that is even easier.

    Chris Johnson doesn't break tackles to rack up 5 yards every carry. He gets stuffed 5 times and then takes it the length of the field. AP breaks tackles on just about every run.

    The question isn't who's a better back, who's faster, or who's more elusive. It's who's harder to tackle. And there's just about noone harder than Peterson.

    CJ...easiliy. cj isn't really shiftier than AP, he's just quicker. AP would knock you out unless you go for his legs, then he'll jump over you. you can take CJ head on and be ok

    peterson would be easier. Peterson is more likely to try and run over you than CJ
