    Newman and Henry are the best CB duo in the NFL period.

    sweet. Glad to know were finally getting respect. Henry could be a bigtime INT guy next year just like he was before he got hurt, because people are so scared to throw at Newman.

    Rolle & McAllister are a decent duo. Add a healthy Ed Reed and that defense should be interesting.

    Yea I saw that, I think We have the same grade as the Panthers not below, it just goes in alphabetical order by cities. Ken Lucas is a good corner, definately top 5 last year, but idk about Gamble. I am happy and surprised we are ranked this high because TNew or Henry never get the love they deserve.

    Newman is a straight up LOCKDOWN CB, and Henry plays outstanding when healthy

    Newman and Henry are the best CB duo in the NFL!

    Next to McCallister and Rolle, Newman and Henry are the best CB duo.

    And when you take into consideration that 1) Henry was injured for a significant part of the season & 2) because of Henry's injury, teams knew that they could stay away from T-New so he didn't see too much action.

    But, another injury at any DB position will put us in a similar predicament similar to last year.

    Not a bad ranking for a couple of guys who make up a "problematical" secondary. :rolleyes:

    McAllister has really slipped quite a bit over the last couple of years - not nearly the same player he was 3 years ago. I'm not sure why as I don't recall a major injury and he should really be in his prime.

    McAllister may have slipped in terms of production but if it were such (as you say) over the last few years that he has declined, then wouldn’t it stand to reason that McAllister’s stats and production would have declined because teams weren’t throwing at him?

    It's widely accepted that McAllister had a down year in 2005. He may recover this season, but it has dropped his tandem with Rolle down to at least third.

    I agree with that publication that Gamble and Lucas are tops in the league. Henry and Newman are the perfect yin & yang in that Newman has the speed and Henry has the physicality, but G&L are a younger and more athletic version, if only by a small margin. I'd give Newman and Henry 2nd, although they're almost interchangeable.

    The thing is that I recall him getting beat quite a bit.

    Will have a better perspective if that guy who charts all the passing plays puts out another update this year.

    Anyone know how McAllister did in last year's analysis?

    For 2004, McAlister ranked 30th in completion percentage allowed and 42nd in yards allowed per attempt, according to Joyner.

    Lucas was with the Seahawks at the time, and he ranked 37th and 55th. (Trufant, the Seahawks' other corner, ranked 62nd in each category.) Gamble ranked 21st and 40th for 2004.

    Also, for 2004 with Cleveland, Anthony Henry ranked 69th and 61st. Aaron Glenn ranked 77th and 75th for the Jets.

    Poor DeAngelo Hall ranked 74th and 76th.

    I posted his rankings in another thread. He was eighth in completion percentage allowed (46.6 percent) and eighth in yards allowed per attempt (5.8 ypa). And that was in his "bad" season.
