Nnamdi Asomugha will receive more from the Philadelphia Eagles not to play for them this season than he will get from the San Francisco 49ers to don their uniform.

how can you say low risk? he was a complete flop in the zone scheme in philly,, and although 9ers play a different kind of zone defense, it's still a zone. nnamdi was great as a raider bc at the time we were all man coverage, which he thrived at. if 9ers can adapt to his style and put him in position to bump and run, he will be good. but if he gets stuck in more zone like packages, he's proven to struggle in that scheme over and over. so i wouldn't necessarily say "low risk, high reward".

Low risk meaning they are barely paying him a dime for what he can ultimately bring to the table which can be tremendous and that translates to high reward.

Yea, Nnamdi messed up in Philly but be truthful with yourself, WHO IN Philly DIDN'T blow coverages and take pays off and struggle or go out for the season making it tougher on the ones left standing? The entire team collectively failed so for anyone to try and make one man shoulder the blame is ludicrous and completely unfair.

I'm not putting it all on him, but you're right. the safeties were especially bad, but if you look at burn percentages and his individual performance, it's not good in that zone scheme. but yeah, price wise vs. potential talent makes more sense. i kind of read that the other way around.

No problem man. Plus he's a west coast guy and the 9ers are solid from upper management to lowest field maintenance employee while Philly were in complete disarray with Andy Reid's son dying and crazy expectations etc. It was just a bad year or two there in Philly for all involved.

49'ers were my pick to win it all last year about midway through the season, and "fell" one play short. I wouldn't mind seeing Nnamdi win one with them (if it can't be with the Raiders). He was a class act in Oakland.

49ers have not played a One heavy scheme since they changed d coordinators 2 seasons ago. They are a man/press defense. He is low risk because they are only paying him 1.5 million for 1 season.

Nope. My favorite team for the past 30 years has been the Raiders. Just being honest.

There's a difference from rooting for a team and logically picking them to win. In my case I root and pick my 49ers to go all the way!!!
