 Nnamdi Asomugha: No receiver makes me nervous
topic by Roo 50 - 06-22-2012, 04:51 PM






All-Pro cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha irritated thousands of Bay Area loyalists earlier this month when he suggested his old team, the Oakland Raiders , would have been satisfied with an 8-8 record , while his current team, the Philadelphia Eagles , never would.

His give and take with the league's premier receivers is more important, but he didn't spare them, either. In a Wednesday visit to PFT Live , Asomugha admitted that few -- actually, none -- of the league's wideouts keep him up at night.

"I guess if you're going to sit up there and play man against a guy, then that's a different story. If that was the case, there aren't guys that stand out in my mind in that way," Asomugha told PFT Live, via the team's official website . "There are a handful of guys that are really good at what they're doing from the receiver position, which is the easiest position in the NFL. There are a handful of guys that are good at it. There's not one particular guy that would concern me when I'm going into a game, but there are guys that you have to take notice of in the league."

Asomugha wasn't done there.

"I think if you talk to any cornerback in the league, we'll probably all tell you that," Asomugha said. "We go back and forth talking trash with our own teammates about it, 'Oh, all you have to do is go out there and catch a ball.' You know where you're going, we have no idea but we have to be perfect at it. So it's always fun banter going back and forth. Every position is difficult, but obviously receiver is ... my goodness."

Asomugha didn't have the easiest time of it last season in Philly's defense, but we haven't forgot about the dominant force he was in Oakland (even if he didn't enjoy his time there). He's one player who enters this season under something of a microscope. With plenty of time to learn Juan Castillo's defense this offseason, he's expected to return to form in 2012.

Don't waist your time explainin nuthin to these dumb ni##as. They gonna find out soon enough. How u get burnt by missing a tackle and a ni##a catchin a jumball when ur in zone and the safety help overtop isn't where he's suppose to be.
