Nnamdi Asomugha (All in one)

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; It's a really interesting question. He was so great and then these past two years with the Eagles he looked like Patrick Robinson (Just kidding folks... Ok, maybe not!) I don't know how to evaluate the guy because his greatness ...

It's a really interesting question. He was so great and then these past two years with the Eagles he looked like Patrick Robinson (Just kidding folks... Ok, maybe not!) I don't know how to evaluate the guy because his greatness has been incredibly diminished lately. Plus there's the fact that he's in his mid 30's. Gonna have to say no.

I'll chip in $12.79! Hurry though if you're gonna go for it. That'll buy me two sixers of my current favorite beer and I'll not wait long.

Great graphics here guys!

Re: Nnamdi ?

He is up in AGE, doesn't like to TACKLE, not a ball hawk and he would cost too much. I like him as a person but NOT on my team as a starting cornerback for the Saints. A really good defensive scheme and above average supporting cast helps a cornerbacks production. Did I say he doesn't tackle? See where I'm going with this??

Re: Nnamdi ?

I don't know if he plays man or zone better, because we certainly need a corner to match opposite Greer.

I agree, a corner that can actually play football.

Major upgrade over anything we have. These short corners aren't cutting it. I don't care how old he is, he's better then Greer and much better then Robinson. Plus he stays healthy.

He was a terrible fit for the Eagles defense. He's a man CB all day long and would be the best CB we've ever had the second the ink dries on his contract.

If he's available we should cut whomever we have to cut to get him here. Seriously.

This. No question about it. Just a bad fit for that defense.

And everyone talking about his age.. You do realize he is the same age as Greer, right? Not young by any means, but certainly a HUGE upgrade from what we have.
