Arizona safety Kerry Rhodes says teammate Patrick Peterson will never catch up with his confidence.
But, as Rhodes says, ''it works for him.''
In his second NFL season, Peterson proclaims himself already the best cornerback in the NFL. He says it's all about confidence, not cockiness, and his play seems to be backing up his talk.
Peterson has seven interceptions this season, one in each of the last four games. His pick of Matthew Stafford's pass and 29-yard return to the Detroit 3-yard line set up the go-ahead touchdown in a 38-10 victory last Sunday that ended the Cardinals' nine-game losing streak.

WIDEOUT THROWS DOWN
Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald recently mentioned that he is a big fan of mixed martial arts, so much so he even has incorporated its training into his workout routine.
Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson was kinda baited on this one, and it was certainly hook, line and sinker in his repsonse.
When asked if he believes he's the best cornerback in the NFL, Peterson replied, "I believe so", according to the Associated Press, via Yahoo Sports.
”I believe I’m playing at a top level right now. Week in and week out, I’m given...
With merely 61 receptions for 674 yards and 4 touchdowns through 14 weeks, All-Pro wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is on pace for his worst season since his rookie year.His father, sportswriter Larry Fitzgerald Sr., tweeted his disgust with the state of the Arizona Cardinals after a 58-0 spirit-crushing loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Fitzgerald Jr. has always been too classy to air...
According to Adam Green of Arizonasports.com, the Cardinals may wish to cut ties with QB Kevin Kolb following the 2012 season.
Green sites durability as the main reason that the move is likely to happen.
“The passer’s career in the desert has been marred by injuries, and by the time the season comes to a close Kolb will have played in just 15 of a possible 32 games for the team...
It seems that we’ll never know what Darnell Dockett was fined for ten days ago as both alleged spitter and spittee have denied that Dockett spat in teammate Kerry Rhodes’ face during their loss to the New York Jets but it is clear that the defensive ‘leader’ did something that didn’t sit well with his organization. According to Dockett's twitter feed this evening the...
TEMPE, Ariz. Sam Achos life is encapsulated in one of his favorite quotes from the Christian rapper Lecrae.
I dont want to be a celebrity; I want to be a servant.
Acho cant help the former. Hes an NFL player, and a good one at that. But the Cardinals second-year outside linebacker is doing all he can do to stay true to the latter goal.
A lot of times, people get caught up in...
Chicago wide receiver Brandon Marshall will face one of his toughest challenges of the season this week against the Arizona Cardinals, squaring off against cornerback Patrick Peterson.
As I mentioned here, you shouldn’t be fooled by Beanie Wells’ Week 15 fantasy numbers. Wells finished with a good fantasy line, but his game stats weren’t that great and his TDs were garbage time gimmes. He still has yet to prove that he’s fully healthy after his injury, and that he can produce in [...]
The Arizona Cardinals may have the worst quarterback situation I’ve ever seen in my life. It’s pretty ridiculous, BUT this weekend wasn’t as bad as previous. I mean the Seattle game was ridic. At least this weekend they saved some face..
Back and forth on how I would have predicted the Bears to match up with the Cardinals this season. At first I saw the Cardinals as a stiff test on the road, this after they started the season 4-0. Then the Cardinals went on a long losing streak while the Bears stood at 7-3 on the season. Now the Bears have lost five of their last six games and while the Cardinals have lost...
Week 15 was an appetizing slate of NFL football games, but Week 16 will likely pale in comparison.
That’s if we even get to the weekend.
Some feel end of days is near — choosing to believe the Mayan calendar is telling us that the world will end on Friday. If that is the case, what a bummer. But then again, it’s only fitting that the Arizona Cardinals won a game in the final...
Few teams this season have been worse than the Chicago Bears on offense, but the Arizona Cardinals are one of them.
The Bears are currently the 29th-ranked offense in the league, just a few spots ahead of the last-place Cardinals. The Cardinals average just 264 yards of total offense and only average 16 points per game; the Bears average 23.
A team that was once one of the...
