We all know what happens when you talk trash about Seattle Seahawks‘ CB Richard Sherman, right? He usually makes a fool out of that person with his actions or even his words — via social media. Patrick Peterson may have awoken the bear once again as he told a local Arizona radio station that Sherman wouldn’t last in the system that the Arizona Cardinals run.


Both cornerbacks are considered two of the best at their position in the NFL, but clearly Sherman has gained the respect as the absolute best in the league — at least he thinks so.

Peterson took to a local sports radio station to say that Sherman wouldn’t be successful in the Cardinals’ system — also saying Sherman’s job is much easier.

“You put [Sherman] in our system, I don’t believe he would last. Obviously, his job is much easier than mine. If you look at their scheme and you look 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 if you put him in our system, I don’t think he’d be able to last, honestly, because I’m asked to do much more than he is.”

You can be sure that Sherman will respond to these comments via social media for all to see, and when he does, they will be accompanied by a graphic from ESPN that show his stats are better than everyone else’s.

Do you agree with Peterson or is he just trying to spark an innocent rivalry?
