Bailey or Asomugha?
Who is the Best Cornerback in our league? This is something for the Fans too decide. If you feel that i made a wrong decision putting Nnamdi and Champ number 1 and 2, then let me know. I'm all for opinions, don't take it personal, it's just my perspective, cause i hear this debate alot. Oakland and Denver fans could argue this story all the time, but in the end you have too have certain points too back up your explanation. I put together a little piece and i just want too hear everybody's opinion, i'm all ears.
Bailey, who was named too the All NFL Decade Team recently, has age creeping up on him. He can arguably go down as the best cornerback ever but, an injury too his hamstring had him on the sidelines more then on the field, last season. So does that mean the shutdown corner's career is on a verge of ending? Or is it the Return of the 2006 Champ Bailey in the 09-10 season? 8 Pro Bowls, 2006 AP Team, 43 Career interceptions. Now that's something too talk about. There's no reason too doubt that he could arguably be number 1 when healthy.
Nnamdi Asomugha? Everyone who plays Madden online knows very well who this guy is. A student of the game, every season he works to get better and can it get any better? 2007-2008 10 Catches allowed all season. He had one INT but QB's didn't throw his way. Peyton Manning pulled Nnamdi too the side and said I would like for you too meet my dad. Peyton introduced Nnamdi too his father. Peyton's words too his father was Meet Nnamdi Asomugha "our leagues best shutdown corner, if you don't believe me, watch our game tape against the Raiders in 2007". If 2007-2008 season was a season too remember, think again! Nnamdi in 2008-2009 season only allowed 9 catches no TD's all season. He was named Cornerback Starter for the AFC West in The Pro Bowl. All AP Team. Highly underrated his career, 8 interceptions in 2006 yet still wasn't noticed. 2007 tells you how much Nnamdi improved and only got better. So would you put Bailey's career interceptions over Nnamdi's catches allowed his whole career? Both are great, great players.
