Yes we’ve heard these words before, but they still resonate every time he’s say it. Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson thinks highly of himself, and why shouldn’t he.  His coach thinks he’s the best cornerback in the NFL, and so does Peterson. “That fires me up, Coach Arians has that type of motivation to give to his players,” Peterson told Erik Kuselias in an interview that aired on Wednesday’s Pro Football Talk on NBCSN.  “I definitely feel like I am the best corner in the game.  I just want to continue getting better every week.  I believe if I do my job to the best of my ability, which is going out there and not letting the opponent’s number one receiver to get off and have a big game, I believe we have a big opportunity of winning the ball game.  I’m pleased to have that opportunity each and every week to go against the offense’s best receiver.  I believe that if you can do that week in and week out then there’s no question that you are the number one defensive back in the league.” Peterson will get the chance to prove it again on Sunday when the Cardinals square off against Steve Smith and the Carolina Panthers.
