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.
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.
