Sorry for the sarcasm, he may have been a good corner in the league 3 years ago. He spent the last 2 in Phili as part of the dream team or should I say no so dream team.
I do believe that D. Revis holds that title as the the best corner in the league

I didn't say he IS the best CB in the league, I said he was 2 seasons ago.

I just can't continue to point out the square peg in a round hole anymore. I fuggin give up. If you don't understand that simple concept by now you never will.

You're right I'll never understand what they would want with a soft over the hill CB. May have been and still is are two different things.

Re: Report: Saints “Pushing” To Sign CB Nnamdi Asomugha

I wonder if he played crappy to force Philly to release him. It doesn't seem like Philly is a great place to play from what I've read. It's very hard for me to believe that a player like that would have such a huge drop off like he did-even with a scheme change. But if he really does suck that bad in zone coverage, I don't care how good he is man to man, I don't want him.

Re: Report: Saints “Pushing” To Sign CB Nnamdi Asomugha

Why would anyone want to sign a soft corner in a division where they have receivers like Julio Jones, Roddy White , Vincent Jackson, Steve smith all physical receivers that would have there way with Nnamdi totally confuses me. We not talking about a guy who had a bad year he had two horrible years and never was known for his tackling abilities.
I made the comment earlier that Atlanta had a young corner that got hurt last year, why not check him outand he's definitely not afraid to get physical.

Nnamdi's best asset was his ability to get physical at the line and jam WR's forcing them out of their routes, and then sticking to them like glue.

It was why everyone said it was a mistake for him to go to a zone scheme.

And that check at the line of scrimmage last season would have provided valuable time for us to get to the QB.

How many sacks did we miss by .5-1s? That check on the WR gives us that extra time. I am starting to see his value more and more.

I rolled up all the Nnamdi threads into one.

When/if he signs we can start a new Nnamdi is a Saint thread.
