    Which would you pick & why?

    Peterson kicked off the debate saying:
    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.

    Sherman is the better corner, and it ain't that close.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Reading Peterson's comments got me to thinking about how we looked at Kj as a rookie. Comparing him to Devin McCourty who had a great rookie year. 76Texan correctly identified different coaching schemes & the help that was dedicated to McCourty (that allowed him to play with confidence) where we left Kj on an island.

    Pretty much the same thing. As long as Seattle can afford to play their style, Sherman is going to be fine & worth every penny. But if I'm building a team, I'd rather have Peterson.

    Without reference to scheme, I'd take Peterson everytime.

    Until the refs start calling pass interference, I'd take Sherman mauling receivers all the way down the field every time.

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

    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.

    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.

    Peterson is the superior athlete. Sherman has better instincts for the position. Sherman will never be the athlete that Peterson is. Peterson could/should develop better instincts and close the gap on Sherman. When that happens, I'll take Peterson. Until then, I'll take Sherman.

    Peterson gave up 2 TDs to AJ when they played the Texans. Sherman didn't do that. ;)
