Patrick Peterson was a guest on the Dan Patrick Show on Tuesday. After talking about NFL personal conduct and various rule changes that have made life difficult for defensive players, the Arizona defensive back was asked about the fastest wide receivers in the game. “The fastest receiver I ever went against is Mike Wallace — by far,” said Peterson. “Him and DeSean Jackson have what I call crackhead speed. The speed is hard to explain because those guys are so fast and you have to be on your A-Game when you go against them.”

“Wait, crackhead speed?” Patrick asked. “That’s not an official term.”

“Yeah, it’s not an official term, it’s just something we say back in the neighborhood back home,” Peterson replied. “When you’re really, really fast you call it crackhead speed. … I don’t know what it is, what those guys were drinking coming up, but those guys definitely have a different speed than some of the other guys around the league.”
