Is Patrick Peterson a better athlete than Richard Sherman? (Credit: AP Photo) Seattle Seahawks corner back Richard Sherman may be considered one of the best defensive backs in the NFL. His three interceptions for the season, rank him third in the NFL and he is a part of a Seattle passing defense that ranks second in the NFL, allowing only 188 yards per game. Despite Sherman’s impressive play, he believes he will be watching a much better athlete tonight as the Seahawks face off against the Cardinals. While talking with ESPN this week, Sherman said Cardinals corner back Patrick Peterson is a way better athlete than him. “He’s a way better athlete than I am,” Sherman said. “He moves better and he’s faster. He has so much speed that it allows him to play a little differently than I do. I have to play straight technical football. He gets to play a little looser because he can recover in a flash and get back in a play.” Over his three year career, Peterson has 1,194 return yards, 6 receptions, 1 pass attempt and 4 rushing attempts. For a defensive back, Peterson has been all over the field. Sherman may be right that Peterson is the better athlete, but he is currently not the better corner. The 5-1 Seahawks visit the 3-3 Cardinals tonight at 8:25pm on NFL Network.

The Luke Wilson Project: Seahawks Rookie Tight End Can Soon Become Emerald City Star

Luke Wilson Facebook Page   Seattle Seahawks rookie tight end Luke Wilson is used to being overlooked as he was the backup tight end during his college days at Rice University. Ironically enough, Wilson was playing behind fellow rookie and current rival Vance McDonald, who was a second round draft pick by the San Francisco 49ers. Although Wilson played second fiddle to McDonald...

No Wagner, No Problem for Seattle’s Defense

(Seattle Seahawks Facebook Page)   Once again, the Seattle Seahawks will be without starting middle linebacker, Bobby Wagner. Having a high ankle sprain and a short week to recover did not bode well for number 54, who will be unable suit up Thursday night against the Arizona Cardinals. Wagner, also did not feature in the Seahawks  20-13 victory over the Tennessee Titans in front...

Marshawn Lynch wasn’t too happy with the pass play on 3rd and goal

Marshawn Lynch was just doing what every fantasy owner of the Seahawks running back wanted to do when on 3rd and goal at the 1 yard line, Darrell Bevell dialed up a passing play instead of feeding Lynch. Marshawn Lynch definitely flipped off his own sideline after SEA called a pass on 3rd and 1 from the one-yard line. pic.twitter.com/dXhjjAn30Q — Tyson Langland (@TysonNFL) October...

Arizona Cardinals need better decision making from Carson Palmer

On paper, the Arizona Cardinals are a good football team. They have receivers that can make plays, a defense that can win games without much offensive production, but one thing continues to hold the team back in the post-Kurt Warner era. Quarterback play. When the Cardinals brought in Carson Palmer, it looked like a good move. For the first time in a long time, Palmer would have...

Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals: 2013 Week 7 NFL Pick

Seattle Seahawks (5-1) at Arizona Cardinals (3-3) Ordinarily, the rule of thumb is to go against the Seahawks on the road. However, lately they’ve been a covering machine no matter where they are, including a 6-2 ATS record in their last 8 road games. Going back to 2007, they are 22-32 ATS on the road, but they have also never really had a problem covering as road favorites in...

Moments in time…The Seattle Seahawks week that was

Not pretty, but we got it done Perhaps it was the star power on the Seahawks sidelines that distracted the players, or maybe even the fact that the Tennessee Titans were using a backup QB. Whatever the reason ended up being, the Seahawks sure didn’t look like they did the last time we saw them at CenturyLink Field. Is it just me or does this team seem to be going backwards? Yes...

Cardinals look for stretch of 'winnable games'

Arizona's offense was very bad last season and not much, if any, better through seven games this year. A new, offensive-minded coach and a new quarterback have yet to solve the issue that has been at the heart of the franchise's problems since Kurt Warner retired after the 2009 season. Now coach Bruce Arians and quarterback Carson Palmer are looking at a schedule over the...

Seahawks too much for Cardinals

Russell Wilson was a loser in his NFL debut in Arizona 13 months ago. Not so Thursday night. Wilson threw for three touchdowns, Marshawn Lynch rushed for 91 yards and the Seattle Seahawks beat the Cardinals 34-22. The Seahawks (6-1) intercepted two of Carson Palmer's passes, converting both into touchdowns, and sacked him seven times, twice by Chris Clemons, who had been questionable...

Seahawks (Friday) MMQB: At home in the desert

Seahawks win 34-22 I have watched a lot of Arizona Cardinals’ games over the years but I can’t remember the last time I heard the University of Phoenix Stadium as loud as it was tonight while the Cardinals were on offense.  It really sounded like the Seahawks were the home team, not the Cardinals. Seattle played like it too as they jumped out to an early 14 point lead. “Road...

Percy Harvin will Resume Practice this Week

Percy Harvin will be suiting back up for the Seahawks according to Ian Rapaport.  Not sure if the exciting wideout will be available to play on Monday night yet or not.   Source: #Seahawks star WR Percy Harvin scheduled to begin practicing next week.

SEAHAWKS ABOUT TO GET EVEN BETTER; PERCY HARVIN’S RETURN IMMINENT!

Harvin close: Percy’s imminent addition to the Seattle offense may be the final nail to a Seattle Super Bowl bid.
