    If I told you the guy we were going to draft at 16 this year would go on to make 8 pro bowls be all NFL 3x and be voted on to the all decade team would you take that?

    OF COURSE!!!

    stop focusing on what guys don’t do well and appreciate what they do great.

    we left that dude on an island for pretty much his entire career and he held it down

    End of an era. Sad to see him go but it was time.

    Very nice letter that brought back so many fun memories.

    He should/could have been HOF worthy, but I think his PED suspension will tarnish his legacy a bit.

    Well written, but as with everything PP, too calculated and polished. Beyond his obvious talent and being an overall good guy, he never really connected with the fans in a meaningful way, and I feel like his time here was disappointing, from the standpoint that he could have done more or contributed more if he were willing to get dirty or play with a little more edge.

    he played well enough to make an all decade team what more do you want?

    how dare he not go out and get concussions every week for the fans. CB literally practice with tennis balls taped to there palms so they don’t grab. It’s the least physical positions in the sport because it has to be the rules have made it that way.

    PP was a fantastic player - the problem wasn't what he produced, more what he could have done with all his talent.

    Hilarious. Nobody is asking him to go out there and be Budda - just show a little effort in tackling and less business decisions.

    In their prime, PP was the better player.
    Do you think maybe the Cards may have told him not to throw his body around? He doesn’t do the team any good injured. I think they told him that on punt returns for sure because they didn’t want him risking it unless he saw a hole.

    Like Deion said, they don’t pay me to tackle.

    right and prime time is the greatest of all time at the position and it ain’t up for debate. For guys to look to a CB to by physical just doesn’t make any sense to me.

    The one thing that I personally remember about PP is during preseason practice when it was held in Flagstaff. I only went to one or two practices, ever, before they moved to Phx.

    He was our first round pick. During the practice I went to, probably only the third or fourth one, after practice was over, all the players were walking from the practice field to their field house. Most of the players were walking (a couple were riding those two wheeled things - forget what they are called, down the middle of the field, 30 or 40 yards away from the fenced sides. There were a few people, mostly kids lined up by the fence (most of the spectators were waiting for the players at the end of the field).

    Patrick Peterson was the only player who took the time and walked over to the fence and started signing autographs and letting his picture be taken with the fans. Not one of the other players took the time to come over and do what he did.

    I've always remembered and appreciated him doing that for the fans (mostly kids in the beginning).

    Good luck PP.

    Ah, pro bowls... Right

    I guess he meant other numbers

    Interceptions
    Pass deflections
    ....

    kinda hard to get those when nobody throws your way. Those are kind of empty stats for shut down corners. You know that.

    Yes was a lot feared by opponents coordinators and wasn't challenged much

    Yeah it’s interesting. I have always respected his talent. And man was I stoked when we drafted him. And I thought he was the beat in the nfl for a period of time. But I never fell in love with PP. I can’t recall any of our better players that I can say that about.
