I do find it quite comical that a "bust" was considered to be the #1A CB for 6 years. I guess that was 6 years of luck.
Listening to the posters on this forum, you'd think our oline was the worst in all of football. Again, another example of not watching anyone else outside the Cowboys.
I never said to neglect the oline/dline. As a matter of fact, I mentioned that should be priority in my previous post. But I threw out the idea that if he came cheap, he could provide good depth. I refuse to believe all those years in Oakland were flukes, but his two with a Eagles Secondary that hasn't been the same since Jim Johnson passed are "who he really is."
This isn't that complicated. Nnamdi was at one time the best or 2nd best CB in football. He is no longer anywhere near that perch. Now he is 31 years old and if his press at the line fails he no longer has the explosion to catch back up and pick off passes.
His style of play isn't conducive to being an off the ball corner either. His career arc is similar to TNew's except he was far better at their peaks.
Next year he'll be 32 and likely out of football. I don't any reason he needs to move around on short-term deals after banking all that money. He is a CAli guy and likely returns to Cali or retires, IMO.
But I still don't know what any team saw Thursday night that would have made them comfortable with waiting a round or two for the offensive lineman they wanted. ---Todd McShay
We just converted half our LB to DL. We have a 30m starting DL, it better be pretty friggin good.
