Hall of Fame Game has Patrick Peterson thinking about a gold jacket

With the Cardinals in the Hall of Fame Game, Patrick Peterson is eager to take a look around Canton, Ohio.

Peterson told SiriusXM NFL Radio that he thinks about what he needs to do to earn a gold jacket one day.

“It’s definitely something that’s very special to me because that’s something I feel I can control as a player,” Peterson said. “I can control what I put on film. Obviously to be a Super Bowl champ, you have to have great individual play that leads into the collective play to ultimately get you that goal. But as far as getting the gold jacket, I control every bit of that.”

Of course, Peterson doesn’t control all of it — there’s also the matter of the Hall of Fame selection committee. But Peterson is confident that if he continues to play the way he has for his first six seasons, the voters will put him in.

“I believe if I continue to stay on the path that I am on, he said, “continue shutting premiere receivers down, continue going to these Pro Bowls, continue being voted All Pro, things like that, I guess I just leave the rest into the voters’ hands.”

The 27-year-old Peterson has already been chosen to six Pro Bowls and three first-team All-Pro teams. If he keeps playing that way into his 30s, he should have a place in Canton one day.

  1. They need a new hall with 2 sections. Hall of Fame and Hall of We Needed To Induct More Players.

    Hall 1 is reserved for the very best. Holders of multiple league records, Super Bowls etc. The other is populated by winners os a popularity contest.

    Perhaps a 3rd wing for those who have the stats but whose criminal records should keep them from being associated with decent people.

  2. IIRC, the HOF game has been moved to Thursday night, so the concert on Friday won’t interfere with the condition of the field.

    In other news, no way Peterson gets in. Once his athleticism is gone (likely some time this season), his play will drop off considerably.

  3. “The 27-year-old Peterson has already been chosen to six Pro Bowls and three first-team All-Pro teams. If he keeps playing that way into his 30s, he should have a place in Canton one day.”

    The trolls don’t like to admit that he has made the Pro Bowl every season of his career. If he does that into his 30s, I’m not sure what’s so disagreeable about him making it into Canton.

    Nice to see the trolls are worried about the Cards so early. They will return to playoff form this year.

  4. Youngsters need to take a time machine and see what a real HoF corner looks like in Sanders, Woodson, Woodson, Hayes. Peterson is a great athlete but average corner. And that my friends is the d@mn truth.

  5. Cliff harris , more pro bowls, as many 1st team all pro selections, 2 time super bowl winner and all decade team and can’t get a sniff. Get in line peterson
