I'm not mad at all that we're losing. I'd like for them to lose one of the next games coming up so we don't have the undefeated talk surrounding our team, we don't need the publicity. We basically got home field locked up barring a breakdown, so I'm good.
Asante is a good corner. I'm not saying he isn't.... but his inability to be a complete corner is something that bothers me when he gets talked about as a top corner. He's not exactly Deion Sanders or Ed Reed with the ball in his hands so while he gets his picks, there are numerous yards and plays where he doesn't come through. It's as simple as that.
Revis is on a whole different level than Samual GoBB. He locks people up man to man without a cover two shell protecting him, he tackles very well, and he can make plays on the ball too. You wouldn't complain about having Samual on your team, but at the same time if you had to choose between the two, you'd be taking Revis in a heartbeat.
Asante just has a knack for the ball. While he gambles, giving the offense that pigskin back is huge. And the reason he got a fat contract. He gets turnovers and doesnt get beat that badly to say who cares. Deangelo Hall or Falls as I used to call him is a perfect example of talented CB who gambles and hurts his team. Asante picked off some big passes for the Birds and Pats.
He may not be the physical CB whose run support is awesome. He may not be the best cover corner where you can sit him on an island. But in the right defensive scheme you'll get results and he unlike some CBs will not drop the INT. He'll catch it more times than not. I view Asante the same way I dont Ronde Barber. Never boosted them up as the best based on "stats" but you cant deny they arent good. You dont make plays, force turnovers luckily. And being a system player isnt a bad thing because you can get results.
I'd take Revis over Asante but I will not nor ever complain he's an Eagle
Felt the same way about Mike Brown during his Bear tenure. Guy had amazing football instincts.
