But, in my opinion, Peterson was either tired of all of Sherman’s talk when Peterson felt deep down he was better, or this was prodded along by someone else, perhaps his agent, to get Peterson more face time throughout the media, which, has happened. Josh, Peterson always has taken the high road on this kind of thing. Peterson is typically takes the high road when it comes to debates like this. The debate has raged on for almost a week: Who’s the better cornerback? Ask proponents of Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson , and they’ll tell you the three-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro is worthy of the distinction. He’ll very honestly tell you he’s the best cornerback in the game because he truly believes he is, and he’ll praise what other players do but he’ll always stop short of calling them the best – which shouldn’t be a surprise if you talk to any elite athlete.
