Re: New Orleans Saints Better Off Not Signing Nnamdi Asomugha

On further review, I wish I had not broken character after all. Caught me on a rough morning, but we all have em, so I apologize.

I still think you're wrong about him though. I understand you got to see the worst of him and all, but my argument remains the same. Wrong guy in the wrong scheme.

I can't recall who he played alongside in oakland, I'll have to do some research on that later.. but I find it hard to believe his dominance was just an illusion based on the god awfulness of his teammates. I believe it was Danno who posted a snippet from an article that mentioned he gave up 13 completions and 2 td's in 3 years. The same article talked about how his strength is in playing press man, because of his long arms and ability to disrupt the wr's route off the line. Rob Ryan played to his strengths then, and I'm sure he would do it now too.

Now I get what a lot of you are saying about a good pass rush being a cb's best friend, and I agree. However, that's a 2 way street. If you knock a guy off his route, you disrupt his timing with the qb. If the qb has to hold onto the ball longer, the pass rush obviously has a better chance of getting there. I believe nnamdi can still do this effectively.. and really, we only need him to be effective. Not elite, just effective. His skill set is a necessary part of Ryan's defense, and outside of Lewis, I don't think any of our cb's are big or physical enough to do it.

I hope he signs and proves all the doubters wrong. I think he has it in him, whether with us or with san fran. I just hope its with us.

Nnamdi is still looking at Niners, Saints

Eight days ago, it appeared that cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha and safety Charles Woodson seemed destined to join the 49ers.

Eight days later, crickets.

But Asomugha continues to consider the 49ers and the Saints as a potential next destination, per a source with knowledge of the situation. Other teams had expressed interest in Asomugha, but no other visits have been taken.

The Saints make sense, given the presence of former Raiders defensive coordinator Rob Ryan. Now running the defense in New Orleans, Ryan wants a Nnamdi reunion.

The depressed market for corners, along with questions about Asomugha’s skills and his interest level in football, surely have made it harder to do the right deal. Then there’s the $4 million that Asomugha already will make from the Eagles in 2013; the cash in hand could tempt teams to low ball Asomugha.That said, knowing he’ll make $4 million this year allows Asomugha to be patient. With the top of the market at $6 million annually, getting $4 million to not play at all provides an attractive alternative.

Id like to think Nnamdi would like to finish his career on a high note, with the guy that coached him to 3 pro bowls

He's bent both teams over for better than a week now, it really doesn't matter anymore. Happy if we get him, if we don't it's his loss.

I just want to highlight this. A great pass-rush artificially inflates the image of the secondary, because fewer good passes are thrown. However, a good secondary can turn a bad pass-rush into an average one, and an average one into a great one. From free agency so far it looks like RR believes that our rushers can get to the quarterback if we can shut it down in the back field. In addition, it is much cheaper to sign good help in the secondary than in the front of the D.
This is why Nnamdi and Keenan Lewis make sense for us, biggest bang for buck.

Re: PFT-Bryant McKinnie, Nnamdi Asomugha on Saints’ radar

We'll have to wait until Monday I guess.

Re: Nnamdi is still looking at Niners, Saints

How can the eagles can 4 mill with a new coach coming in and still has to take the hit against the cap? Now that i.m saying that j. Delhomme made 12 mill without missing a beat out of carolina
