Through an NBCSports.com article Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic says that Arians claimed the NFL’s best WR will be facing the league’s best CB.
Arians described the matchup as “probably, in my opinion, the best corner in the league is going against the best receiver in the league. Do we want to leave him out there one-on-one all day? No. But that’s going to happen. He’s going to have to win his share of the battles.
In my opinion Richard Sherman is the league’s best CB but Patrick Peterson certainly needs to have his name mentioned in that discussion. I’m surprised that Arians didn’t say the same about Larry Fitzgerald who has been a consistently exceptional WR throughout his career. Arians is right about Calvin though, who may even be the league’s best player.
