The comparison is pretty identical. I haven't seen anyone get away with illegal contact more than Sherman since Law himself.
No Law was not better than Bailey and I don't think the comparisons are completely identical, but I think it paints your picture. However, Sherman plays a lot of man coverage without over the top help. Thomas usually rolls over top of Browner. But they mix up zone and man, Sherman will play lots of man. Peterson plays majority man but he gets over the top help. Neither are left completely alone every snap on an island.
I still think PP has more upside..
