Every cornerback in the NFL will have his opportunity to address whether Richard Sherman is the best cornerback in the league. As we said last week, "best cornerback" has replaced "elite quarterback" as the 2014 NFL buzz phrase. Tuesday was veteran cornerback DeAngelo Hall's turn to be asked about Sherman's postgame comments. The Washington Redskins cornerback, who is set to be a free agent, believes Sherman is the best just in terms of what the Seattle Seahawks ask him to do. "I definitely think he's the best at what they want him to do, what they ask him to do," Hall told WJFK-FM. "To sit there and say he's the best corner in the game is probably not fair because of what their defense asks him to do." Hall said the Legion of Boom's success is a group effort. "They play a lot of Cover 3, but their Cover 3 is predicated on their corners pressing," Hall said. "All their linebackers still drop in coverage. Obviously they have a heck of a rush. They have probably the best safety in the game; actually two safeties, because I love Kam Chancellor." Hall said he prefers a corner who travels across the formation to shadow the other team's best player.
