What? Why would that happen? Having more weapons around you in basketball works this way in that your numbers go down, but not football.
Peterson having Favre, Rice, Harvin and that left side of the line is not going to hurt his numbers. It would HELP him because teams can't focus all their energy on one player because others will make them pay.
You think Peyton would put up better numbers surrounded by less talent? No.
More talent is better.
