There is a war raging between Patrick Peterson and Richard Sherman, wherein Patrick Peterson says stuff about Richard Sherman and then Richard Sherman tweets back facts at Patrick Peterson. It is rather entertaining.

"He's only covering space. He's not really covering a guy," Peterson said. "At the end of the day, he has great stats and he has great playmaking ability, not taking that away from him because he is a good corner. "But as far as being a shutdown corner, man-to-man guy, in my eyes, I don't believe he's that."
So Sherman tweeted this:
