I saw the reports on Profootballtalk that Patrick Peterson of the Arizona Cardinals is now the highest paid cornerback in the national football league.
I nearly spat my drink out.
My god is this guy overrated. Not once have I watched him and said to myself “wow, this guy is good”. I’ve said that about Richard Sherman, Joe Haden, Earl Thomas, and Darrelle Revis. Not this guy.
Yet we hear people constantly say this guy is the best cornerback in the league. The Arizona Cardinals office certainly thinks so?
Tell me if he’s even sniffed the playoffs before like Sherman or Revis have. You can’t knock Joe Haden for that since the Browns are always awful. The Cardinals actually had Palmer playing decent last season and a stacked defense. That’s right. Karlos Dansby was the one on that defense who people thought was underrated. I agreed. He could have been in the running for defensive player of the year last year. He was playing lights out. John Abraham was also good. The young kid Mathieu was great until he went down with an unfortunate injury.
Peterson has never won anything and he is in my opinion the most overrated player in the league. People can say all they want. They can say he’s good for man on man coverage or returns punts. Big deal. Why can’t he win anything if he’s so great?
