This is my take, as well. I think Peterson is probably a better pure corner, but Sherman knows how to push the boundaries of the way refs call games these days, and his style of play and mind games get into WRs heads. Plus, dude is a leader and as long as his performance can back up his mouth, it inspires his teammates and fans. He's fun to watch.
Neither are shutdown corners, though, if Deion Sanders is the standard by which we judge it.
