    Asomugha was what you called a true shut down cb. And unlike most Cbs with this label, he would get tested over and over again when he was in oakland. He had alot of wear on his body. I think he just wasnt 100% into the game anymore. He played physical, and the new powder puff rules went against his abilities.

    Sometimes the best signings are the ones you don't make...

    Nnamdi Asomugha: 11 seasons. 15 ints. 79 yds. 1 tds.

    Deion Sanders: 14 seasons. 53 ints. 1331 yds. 9 tds.

    Really now?

    Great CBs trick QB's to throw to their side. Great CBs make plays. Look at Richard Sherman over there in Seattle.

    and did you do the very simple math?

    Just how many INTS per season did Deion average?

    Over 4 INTs a season. And the simple math also says that Sanders averaged 25 yards a return if those numbers are right. Three of Deion's "average" returns are about as many yards as Nnamdi had his entire career.

    Way more than that overrated game being compared to Deion.

    So glad we did not sign this bum. Every single signing the Eagles made that offseason that was supposedly going to make them a "dream team" as Vince Young put it, backfired in the worst way possible and just a few seasons after, none of them are on the roster.

    I guess you can say Deion got relatively few picks; however, his relatively few is way more than Nnamdi's extremely low total. There really is no comparison.

    Deion averaged 3.79 interceptions per season. He played 14 seasons and sat out 3 seasons before coming back to play 2 years with the Ravens at age 37. He was also a part time player for a small amount of time during his prime years while he dabbled in baseball. He never had fewer than 2 interceptions in a single season and had an interception for every 3.55 games played and one for every 2.96 games started. And his relatively few interceptions is still enough to rank 24th in league history.

    Nnamdi averaged 1.36 interceptions per season. He played 11 seasons. Eight of those picks came in one season. That really drags his average interceptions per season down if you take out that year, which is clearly the outlier. He had 5 seasons where he didn't record a single interception. He had 9 seasons where he had 1 or fewer INTs. He got an interception every 9.53 games and one every 8.27 starts. Nnamdi isn't ranked in the top 250 for career interceptions.

    Make it relative to whatever you want, Deion got far more interceptions than Nnamdi. Whether it is totals or averages, Deion far outpaced Nnamdi.
