Patrick Peterson Will Start For Cardinals

59 posts in this topic

For most of training camp, a debate among the Cards’ depth chart was whether rookie and No. 1 pick Patrick Peterson would start the opening game. He was behind Greg Toler and A.J. Jefferson, and, all things staying the same, I think Peterson would have come off the bench in the beginning.

But obviously all things didn’t stay the same. Toler got injured and is out for the season. So Peterson has now been elevated — above veteran Richard Marshall — to the starting lineup.

More...

Found this to be relevent in this forum given the opener. I was pretty vocal about wanting PP7 (now PP21, um nope doesn't sound right) back at the draft, but Cam has since won me over. I'd like to see Peterson struggle Sunday, and succeed week 2 on out. Found the bolded part particularly entertaining. Can't imagine why.

:cam:

I agree wholeheartedly with this post. I too wanted Peterson but Cam has grown on me.

Same as y'alls, I was hoping for Dareus or Peterson...or Green, but I'm behind Cam now. Ironically those other 3 would fill pretty holes on the team now, but that's just the racist in me talking.

I don't think Peterson will be on our #1 and I know smitty isn't as fast as he was in 2005, but if the formation dictates it and they do have him covering eightynine at some point, and smitty breaks his ankle with that nasty top of the key pivot thing he does and takes it deep, I might literally cry tears of joy.

he will probably have some growing pains as a rookie corner, hopefully it's against us

guy seems like he has legit super star potential so you never know. can see him burning us for a big punt return at some point in the game.

Smith may very well school PP if he matches up against him. as talented as he is, it's still gonna be his first ever game as a pro, and Smith has done this to inexperienced corners before.

Hopefully our ST doesn't resemble the one of the last 2-3 years, because it has been awful.

Peterson is going to learn a real tough lesson from #89

Yea.... and David Gerrard under center, but on the flip side, there are just as many good free agent options available for WR, DT, and CB (err maybe not CB as much) as Gerrard is for QB.
