Woodson has Harris over in GB. I bet if Oakland had an above average 2nd CB, Nnamdi would get at least 50 thrown his way this year. Too bad Routt didn't live up to expectations.

Right on target. The Raiders should move Asomugha around and let their best defensive player make some plays. Putting him in position to make plays can only help. Plus, if Oakland does let Nnamdi move around the field, then he can prove he is the NFL's top corner today.

Revis allowed more completions 29, against just the top receivers he covered in 2009 then Nnamdi had thrown his way in total. NFL QB's that are the real experts at pointing out a top corner threw the ball more times in 2009 alone at Revis then they threw at Nnamdi in 2007, 2008 & 2009 combined, that is right combined.

Revis allowed A Johnson 4 completions when he covered him, Nnamdi allowed him 0 when he covered him. The Jets D make Revis look much better then he is and the other corners that play with Revis in 2009 were not very good at all.

Nnamdi is making the top dollar and the Raiders feel he is worth it. The Jets offered Revis chump change as far as the market for top flight corners go and have told him to take it or leave it. Nnamdi is by far the much better corner as his pay scale validates.

Al should have gave Wood the money. Aso would have taken more years at far less than he is making now only a couple years ago... C-Wood has always been the better athlete although Aso is great in his own right. Wood is just one of the best athletes I ever seen. These two guys would have been historically good...

Def agree that Aso is better than Revis and that the pressure the Jets get makes Revis look better than he really is...
