Default Patrick Peterson or Richard Sherman?

Which would you pick & why?

Peterson kicked off the debate saying:
Quote:
"I don't want to get in a debate as far as stats that he has and things like that," Peterson said during an interview on KMVP-FM. "Obviously his job is definitely much easier than mine. But if you look at their scheme and at our scheme, he's a Cover 3 corner. Period.

"A lot of guys say he's a shutdown corner. But if you look at film and guys who understand the game, go back and look at film and see how his defense is. I believe that if you put him in our system, I don't believe he'll be able to last, honestly. Because I actually do much more than he is (doing)."
What do you think, who's the better corner?

I like Patrick Peterson for the versatility. Maybe it's just me but I don't see Sherman shutting down premiere WRs like Revis does, but he's definitely an elite at his job.

Different utilization. Sherman mostly plays left defensive side of the field, whereas Peterson usually follows the #1. Look at how many redzone td's sherman gave up last year vs peterson. Stats aren't the whole story, but they're a lot of it.

Agreed.

Like Namdi, you put him in another system & Sherman will look average at best. It's a good thing for Sherman that the 'hawks also locked up Earl Thomas.


& Sherman's a little loud for my taste.

Default Re: Patrick Peterson or Richard Sherman?

I believe Sherman is very good, but I don't think it's even a competition. Peterson goes up against Jones, Megatron, AJ, Green, and on and on while Sherman goes up against the second tier guys. To me it's Peterson all day every day. The stats may say Sherman, but the stats don't tell the whole story. If given the choice I want a cb that can lock down the other teams #1 wr as much as a #1 can be locked down that is.

Default Re: Patrick Peterson or Richard Sherman?

most definitely peterson.

sherman's in the perfect situation and enjoying what that brings. he's got a killer pass rush, 2 best in class safeties, linebackers underneath who can cover, and he playes one side even if there's not a receiver there. really good cornerback certainly, especially if the ref's swallow their whistles. he's not the complete player that peterson is though.

For Texans and that is how I look at players, I want Peterson.

Default Re: Patrick Peterson or Richard Sherman?

I'd rather have Sherman for many reasons, mainly because he's not going to give up the TD, and he's likely to intercept quite a few as well. Peterson seems to be less effective in the red zone, and that's where football games are won or lost. Points are the only stat I truly care about.
