Patrick Peterson vs Richard Sherman

Who you takin?

"Peterson said on a recent radio show that Sherman, generally considered the game's top corner back after helping Seattle to a Super Bow title in February, would struggle if he had to play in the Cardinals defensive system. He also said Sherman isn't the shutdown corner Peterson is."

Or is this guy better than both put together?



See how I injected some fun on here today?

Re: Patrick Peterson vs Richard Sherman

Sherman is a cover 3 system guy. Put him anywhere else and he doesn't do as well.

Peterson takes his receiver and covers the whole field with him, Sherman only has to cover 1/3 at most.

Re: Patrick Peterson vs Richard Sherman

Sherman would struggle without earl thomas being there to bail him out, plus I've never consistently seen Sherman get matched up against the teams top receiver, he gets matched up against 3rd string wide outs and then talks trash when they don't beat him

Patrick Peterson is all round better corner, plus he plays offense and returns punts

Re: Patrick Peterson vs Richard Sherman

SJB is going to get taught how to press outside consistently, with his height, that makes it difficult for a QB to drop passes in a basket on the outside.

Mark my words, he is going to be a lot better than some think.

Re: Patrick Peterson vs Richard Sherman

Its a different approach than we are accustomed to seeing. Normally we are a "stay on him and don't let him catch" sort of team.

Hopefully we transition to a "force the QB to make the low percentage throws". Payton did it with our offense, instead of figuring out what to do against a certain defense, make the defense figure you out.

Re: Patrick Peterson vs Richard Sherman

I don't really watch these two players unless they play the Saints. With that being said I'm voting #28 Lewis.

Re: Patrick Peterson vs Richard Sherman

I think they are two very different players. Sherman is the big bump-and-run guy who will jam you at the line and physically beat you up. Peterson is the pure cover guy who can run with anybody.

If I had to pick one it would be Sherman, simply because I think his skills are a better fit for the way the NFL is today. Quarterbacks are so good that even if you have great coverage, they can still hit a window as long as the receiver has the tiniest amount of separation. But if you have a guy like Sherman up beating on the receiver and disrupting their routes, it makes it a whole lot harder to throw to that guy.

The thing I love about Keenan Lewis is that he combines both of those abilities. He may not be as good at either style as Sherman or Peterson, but when you add it all up he's one hell of a good corner.

Re: Patrick Peterson vs Richard Sherman

Depends on what system I'd be running. I would take Revis or Haden over both.
