Seahawks’ Richard Sherman says Chiefs’ Marcus Peters is going to be great

New, comments

You want some quotes from one of the NFL’s best cornerbacks telling us that Marcus Peters is going to be great? You came to the right place!

Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman was asked after the game about the Kansas City Chiefs’ Marcus Peters. Sherman has a little history with Peters, who went to the University of Washington and hung around with former Seahawk Marshawn Lynch.

“Peters is going to be great,” Sherman said via quotes from the Chiefs. “He had a great season last year. He’s got great eyes, great feet. He does a great job in coverage. He’s going to continue to grow this year and be fantastic.

“We talked a little bit at the Pro Bowl. We talked a little bit when he was at UW. Marshawn would bring him in from time to time. He plays an entirely different style than I play. He does a great job of route recognition. He trusts and believes in his instincts and he plays the ball.”

They are definitely different players*. I don’t watch enough of Sherman to break it down but what I like about both is that they both come across as very intelligent football players. Sherman has had eight interceptions twice in his career; Peters needs one more season with eight to match him.

*Yes, very different. As in two completely different human beings.
