I can't post the video of the play he references against the Jets, so you have to click the link if you want to see it.

Marcus Peters

Talk about a ball hawk.

Marcus Peters is the opposite of Malcolm Butler. Instead of letting you get a step and playing behind you, Marcus sits back, keeps you in front of him and waits to jump the route once the ball is in the air. Heís able to do that because he doesnít play the receiver like Malcolm does ó he doesnít even look at the receiver.

He plays the quarterback.

Marcus rarely takes his eyes out of the backfield. Itís weird when you first play against him because youíre running a route and youíre like, This guy doesnít even have his eyes on me. Howís he gonna cover me? And then you get to the top of your route and youíre about to make your cut, and Marcus is already jumping the ball.

Watch how he jumps the route on this play against the Jets.


See how he breaks on the ball before the receiver even makes his cut or gets his head around? Heís able to do that because heís not waiting for the receiver to give him an indication of where the ball is going. He sees it out of the quarterbackís hand.

Now, because of his style of play, Marcus does give up a lot of completions. Heís great at guessing, playing percentages and jumping routes, but you can beat him on pump-fakes, especially deep. Heís also got the benefit of a great pass rush, so a lot of times, the quarterback doesnít have time to set him up and beat him deep. The safety also cheats over his way a little sometimes because he understands that Marcus jumps a lot of routes and can get beat if he misses. So the rest of the defense gives him a little extra help to allow him to make those big plays.

And itís working for him. I donít think anybody has more interceptions since he came into the league in 2015. If somebody does, I know itís close. Because thatís where he makes his money. And if he gets beat every now and then, thatís just the cost of doing business.

Itís like when you got a big hitter in baseball who strikes out a lot. You can live with the strikeouts.

As long as he keeps hitting home runs.

There arenít a lot of guys who play the cornerback position like Marcus does. These days, itís a press/bump league. So at a time when most corners are jamming you at the line and getting up in your face, Marcusís style really stands out.

Darrelle Revis


Heís not the biggest. Or the strongest. Or the fastest.

He doesnít try to bait you. Or trick you. Or jump routes.

Heís just straight up technique savvy, man. He has quick feet and great hip control. Slant route, go route, double move ó it doesnít matter. He just gets on you and moves with you, like youíre joined at the hip.

But the big thing with Revis is how he defends the deep ball. The moment that he realizes youíre trying to go deep, he does this thing called the arm bar. Basically heíll fight for position and then take his arm and extend it across your body ó heíll wall you off and wonít let you hit your stride and run past him. Heís been doing it forever.

I used to always complain to the refs about that. ďCímon, man Ö heís using an arm bar!Ē

And the refs would always say, ďHeís not grabbing you.Ē

No, heís not. But heís still impeding my route and not letting me get a free run, and heís doing it after five yards.

Man, I would get so annoyed Ö Iím getting heated right now just talking about it. They gotta create a new rule for it, or something. The Darrelle Revis rule. He made a lot of money doing that, man.

Like I said right off the bat: The thing about lists or rankings is that is that somebody deserving always gets left out. But if anybody who has played receiver in the league over the last 10 years does one of these 5 Toughest lists, they canít do it without including Darrelle Revis. Straight up, man-to-man Ö I donít think thereís ever been anybody better.

Now that's a good post KnowMo. I wish that you would post more stuff like that.

Good read. Peters certainly has an interesting style and like Sanders says - it works.

There must be something about the Broncos corners being better in there or something.... some kind of a trick somehow.

Peters plays the football as if he were the receiver and tracks it like an outfielder in baseball. Sanders being generous though saying Marcus has the benefit of a great pass rush:D

Good articles !!:thumb:

I always thought of Revis more like a James Hasty cornerback, but then again I rarely saw him play. Apparently I'm wrong.

Great post, Knowmo, maybe your best ever.

Still mad at how the whole Sanders thing went down.

Good post Knowshit. Glad it was something of actual informative content for a change. And Sanders is 100% correct in his assessment.

When the pass rush shows up, Peters is the most dangerous CB in the NFL. Even the way he tackles the ball... yeah, he looks like an idiot when it doesn't work. He's causing a big play fumble when it does.

Good read.

Kc's pass rush has generally shown up against the Broncos, even if it's been shit most of this season.

Bingo. He is a very streaky CB.

Generic take. Would like to see the data on "gives up a lot of receptions."

Great read! Would love to see us get Butler in the offseason, he'd compliment Peters on the opposite side well.

Yeah but he sits on a exercise bike during the national anthem so it's time to get rid of him. :spock:

I played alot of corner in highschool football. Obviously no where near the level these guys do it. But I always played the quarterback and the ball. I always wondered by nfl cb's were always playing the receiver. You are trying to intercept or bat down the ball. Youre playing the ball, play the ball. I have no idea what its like to play football at a nfl level so I cant really speak but I always wondered that. Marcus plays the ball and plays the quarterback. Hes a beast.

I believe I had read somewhere he was around 25th in yards given up per cover snap this season.
