Default Re: Darrelle Revis vs. Nnamdi Asomugha

With so little data available for pre-2001 players, they become much harder to compare and contrast. Accomplishments and how they were viewed in their time becomes much more important.

Here's a list of some notable CBs:

* Deion Sanders (94 DPOY, 8x Pro-Bowl, 6x All-Pro 1st, 2x All-Pro 2nd)
* Rod Woodson (93 DPOY, 7x Pro-Bowl, 5x All-Pro 1st, 0x All-Pro 2nd)
* Willie Brown (9x Pro-Bowl, 5x All-Pro 1st, 2x All-Pro 2nd)
* Night Train Lane (7x Pro-Bowl, 3x All-Pro 1st, 3x All-Pro 2nd)
* Mel Blount (75 DPOY, 5x Pro-Bowl, 2x All-Pro 1st, 2x All-Pro 2nd)
* Charles Woodson (09 DPOY, 7x Pro-Bowl, 2x All-Pro 1st, 3x All-Pro 2nd)
* Champ Bailey (10x Pro-Bowl, 3x All-Pro 1st, 3x All-Pro 2nd)
* Ronde Barber (5x Pro-Bowl, 3x All-Pro 1st, 1x All-Pro 2nd)
* Aeneas Williams (7x Pro-Bowl, 2x All-Pro 1st, 2x All-Pro 2nd)
* Mike Haynes (9x Pro-Bowl, 2x All-Pro 1st, 6x All-Pro 2nd)

* Darrelle Revis (3x Pro-Bowl, 2x All-Pro 1st, 0x All-Pro 2nd)
* Nnamdi Asomugha (3x Pro-Bowl, 2x All-Pro 1st, 2x All-Pro 2nd)

Lester Hayes also won DPOY at CB, but it was unfortunately the only time he could ever could crack AP-1 team, with just one other year on 2nd.

Charles Woodson had a brilliant season in 2009, but Revis was just too great to ignore. He should already have received his DPOY and now it'll be very difficult to get it, much like the seasons Derrick Thomas and DeMarcus Ware both put up 20 Sacks and didnt win. Yet, he's 26 entering 2011 and reasonably has four to five more years in his athletic prime. Injury risk is always there, but not too much standing in his way from racking up All-Pro accolades especially with his study and work habits. He's nearly matched everybody not named Deion Sanders, Rod Woodson and Willie Brown and he's played four seasons.
