Default PATRICK PETERSON: “I think I am the best cornerback in the league right now”

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...inst-megatron/

Although Lions-Cardinals is nowhere near the NFL’s best game on Sunday, that game will feature one of the NFL’s best individual matchups when Lions receiver Calvin Johnson is covered by Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson.

In fact, to hear Peterson tell it, the only better individual matchup in all the NFL than Peterson vs. Megatron is the one that happens in Cardinals practice, when Peterson covers teammate Larry Fitzgerald.

“I think I am the best cornerback in the league right now,” Peterson told reporters in a conference call this week. “You know, me and Calvin, we’re the same caliber players.”

But Peterson doesn’t consider Johnson the best receiver in the league right now.

“He’s second in my book behind Larry,” Peterson said.

Good to have confidence I guess... Coming off a 58-0 thumping though, whether his fault or not... Better to just keep a lid on it right now!

I think he isn't even the best out of his draft right now, Sherman is having a great year

1) Obviously that would be the centerpiece and not straight up.
2) I am relaying what I heard; it's not my own trade proposal

Their basis for comparison on CB trades is skewed. They see Champ going to Pro Bowls every year; and they can hardly remember a guy named Clinton Portis. Deep down inside, they are hoping that the karma gods will someday even things out.

yeah but not a 4th rounder for the 5th overall pick of last year. No way it would happen. To get Peterson you would have to give up elite talent. Like the one we gave for Champ (we ran to the bank with that trade by the way). Not going to happen.

I'd like PP on this team and he may very well be the best right now but not over Von however I'm not sure anyone is saying they want PP on this team instead of Von plus FA stud CBs come on the market all the time even Champ was traded for. Good luck finding a Von Miller type on the market

Von miller is more important than PP.

A dominating pass rusher is the single biggest key on a defense. Look at the giants; secondary is suspect but that pass rush is elite

Just one man's opinion......

I cannot recall Miller tooting his own horn about being the best....you usually hear other players and coaches and analysts and fans saying it
