Peterson’s pick worth more than 1,000 words

Posted by Darren Urban on May 14, 2013 – 9:42 pm

So, if a picture is worth 1,000 words, what is a video worth?

In the case of Patrick Peterson’s beautiful one-handed interception Tuesday, well, you can see for yourself. Peterson still is a work in progress as a cornerback, but you understand with ability like that why he’s already got a a Pro Bowl as a corner under his belt.

    I was follower Peterson back in his LSU days. He is a phenomenal athlete and pickup for the Cards.

    If anyone can Help Carson Palmer how Not to throw Int’s it would be Peterson constantly picking Carsons throws in practice. Better to learn from one of the Best CB’s in the NFL before the season starts.

    That is Patrick Peterson setting up the QB to think he has an easy completion, Wrong!!! The man has that closing speed similar to Dion Sanders. Patrick is going to be awesome this year.

    I wonder if Karlos took one look at the film this afternoon and thought,
    “Yep I made the right choice coming back Home!”

    GO CARDS!!!

    As much as I like the interception, I still feel a bit nervous that we had an interception (last year will do that to a Cardinals fan).

    Nice athletic catch. Of course it was agains #10, Robert Gill (I don’t know him) and not Larry Fitz, Floyd, or Roberts.

    Saw the 1st part of this video on and immediately fans of the 9’ers and S-hawks started with the negative comments. I hope we bust their collective chops this year. We must go 4-2 in the Division to get some respect back.

    I’m torn between being excited about the play of the defense or being concerned about the interceptions Palmer is throwing. I heard Bell and Dansby got him too.

    Fitz could not have done it better

    Great play, but he was beat deep. If the ball is on the money its 6 the other way. Then again. It’s May and its fun to watch.

    number 10, Robert Gill played WR in Arena League and is a speed guy. In the video it looks like Palmer just under threw him, really easy pick for PP21. No concern, first day of OTA’s in May, Palmer can throw all the picks he wants, get them out of your system and be ready to go come Sept 8th in StL.

    Please remember that it is May and that OTA’s just began…

    Defense always starts stronger than offense even going into training camp and the pre-season. Defense is more reaction than scheme early, where as offense is timing based and gets better with repetition.

    Lol when I saw PP’s pick, haha, wow.

    In other vid, pretty excited to see Palmer’s throws… what a relief to have a real QB.

    How does Stanton look, Darren?

    PS: Its getting hot outside, completion date on bubble? Thx.

    No date announced. But I don’t expect it before the season.

    That ball was thrown 50 or 55 yards. (Hard to tell with the camera movement.) That should score some touchdowns and Peterson should keep opponents from scoring on us. Good formula.

    Good to see our Cardinals in action. Looking forward to September.

    Got to agree with many posters that the ball was way under thrown. It looked like Palmer had him deep.

    On the other hand, whose to say PP could not have kicked it into another gear to pick the deeper throw. Good CBs sometimes bait QBs into throws they shouldnt make.

    What I like most about the play is PP getting his head around to locate the ball. If PP sees the ball, he has great skills to make a play on it. You see so often the CB have no idea where the ball is and the WR make a back shoulder catch or get a PI. Keep getting that head around PP.

    Darren – great job on posting the OTA photos – I felt like I was there! Tremendous work as well to give us Fanatic Fans current updates on the Cap structure, it helps everyone to keep our feet on the ground and helps to really follow what Keim and Co are working on. Muchas gracias.

    Finally got to watch it (saw nothing but a black screen the over the past couple of days). A few things jumped out at me. One, Peterson vs #10 (Gill?) is a mismatch. That play could be run 10 times, and no matter where Palmer puts the ball it’s a pick. His eyes never left the QB to even bother with the receiver, his route was that predictable, and Gill made no attempt at breaking the interception up. Just didn’t get anywhere near the read on it that PP did. Again, just a huge difference in talent level/field awareness between the two.

    Second, it looked a lot like an interception he had at LSU. The coach there does a great job of teaching those guys to pick the ball up as it comes out of the QB’s hand. With a few seasons at this level under his belt now, and having defended the elite WR’s in the league, I think this is his breakout year.
