Which Patrick Peterson Will Show Up?

November 8th, 2019

A legendary cornerback will be on the Den of Depression field Sunday and he won’t be wearing Bucs colors.

Joe’s talking about arguably the key the football game, Cardinals star cornerback Patrick Peterson.

Last week on Thursday Night Football, Peterson was roasted all night in what was his third game in 11 days after returning from a six-game drug suspension.

The consensus in Arizona this week is that Peterson didn’t have his legs back and folks believe Sunday is the day they will return after extended rest and the conditioning gained over the past three games.

But there’s also a chance Peterson is on a sharp decline at age 29 following eight consecutive Pro Bowls.

Joe has a hunch the former is true, that Peterson is just getting his legs back and will be up for the challenge of shadowing Mike Evans on Sunday in Tampa. Joe would take Evans in the battle, but just don’t expect another 150-plus yard day from Evans.

Where Joe is a bit concerned about Peterson is in his knowledge of Bruce Arians’ offense. Veteran anticipation often can make up for speed.

Regardless, the Evans-Peterson faceoff should be a fun one.

    the one who will probably have a career day off Jameis which will put more feathers in his cap and dollars in his future bank account.

    Joe throws out legendary faster than politicians throw out tax payer money…. joe has rendered legend meaningless
    Peterson made 8 Pro Bowls in first 8 seasons and burst onto the scene with a crappy team in a smaller market. He also was once the best punt returner in the game. He will be in the Hall of Fame one day.–Joe

    No more watching football for me! Last week was the last one I could stomach Just coming to this site and going fishing on sundays. Go Evans, keep setting records!

    he can’t cover 2 guys simultaneously. either evans or godwin will have a busy day.

    i think evans will get peterson. godwin will be given extra attention from a safety. maybe we’ll experience something truly crazy with OJ, miller, or perriman actually holging on to enough passes for a breakout game

    Trent Dilfer should be in the HoF over Dan Marino. All that matters is Rings.

    So tmaxcon I guess every single player on the Patriots is better than every single player on the Ravens, Chiefs, 49ers, etc. because the Pats have won a super bowl? Didn’t know you were the type of fool to judge individual performance entirely based on team performance.

    I guess Antonio Brown, Julio Jones, Deandre Hopkins, Mike Evans, OBJ, AJ Green, Michael Thomas, etc. all in fact not good and won’t make the hall of fame. But LEGENDARY Patriots wide reciever Phillip Dorsett has multiple rings! HOF induction immediately. So many successful free agents come from the Patriots, right?

    Your logic for evaluating players is laughable and wrong.

    P.S. Tony Dungy has a ring

    Let’s just hope they don’t run Mike on a lazy out route the first play of the game that results in a pick-6

    Petty Officer, you took the EXAACT words out of my mouth; I was going to use that same example. Of course we could use Marino vs. Flacco as well. But as we know Trollmax the clown will Trollmax the clown. Um, haven’t you reached that mandatory age yet, Darlene?

    Love, Little Stevie

    out here in Arizona, the radio guys, Wolf and Doug and Burnsy and Gambo keep talking about this matchup, cant tell you how many times they called Mike Evans elite. They are not sure if PP is washed up or just had a bad last game vs niners. They are really impressed with ME and Godwin. They called our defense “trash” they did not break it down–like secondary is awful and d-line strong–no just called it trash over and over–Gambo dude is really obnoxious said they were trash 5 times in one sentence.They talk constantly about their 2 running backs and which will get the start and if both get played and even at the same time-same play. They have David Johnson and kenyan Drake. It never once occurred to them we have a really decent run defense. They think they are better than the Bucs–they have more wins. They expect BA to lose his marbles when Jameis has his first int in the first quarter(as said by Doug). They talk about BA alot–including Steve Keim the GM today. It is so obvious they were hurt bad when BA signed with the Bucs–they don’t get it and talk about that all the time.They like where they are now but say things like he was our most winning coach but they were glad to move on–all in one sentence. They think Kyler is sack proof–he runs and gets away and slides just in time. To them kyler is a young ussel Wilson. i feel like a spy. Anyway I listen to 98.7 out here to and from work–I like the phoenix Suns. Thought I’d share it.

    Joe…….Serious question. Can we have a poll on Perma Banning T..x?
    Many of us here are tired of his constant trolling. If it were the occasional troll it would be ok. However all he does is spew negativity.

    “Joe…….Serious question. Can we have a poll on Perma Banning T..x?”

    I vote NO!

    In today’s lunatic, “Cancel culture” we can’t just eliminate the the 1st amendment that protects Joe’s freedom of the press as well as Bucfan’s diverse opinions.

    TMax may not be 100% correct all the time but he has many valid points. Who knows, maybe he knows more than you or I, it pays to listen to everyone.

    I’m with Ghost of Darrell Henderson, TMaximus stays as he makes legit points. And I often read McCoy posts hoping for a chuckle.
