    CB dept. : recis & Asomugha ? ? ?

    MIAMI -- A few AFC thoughts and observations from its 41-34 victory in Sunday night's Pro Bowl at Sun Life Stadium.

    I just heard one of the scariest ideas anybody has mentioned to me in a long time.The AFC's starting cornerbacks, :rockon: Darrelle Revis and Nnamdi Asomugha :rockon: , want to play on the same team. As fantastical as that notion might be, it's frightening to consider.Oakland Raiders star Asomugha was smiling when he brought up the dream scenario, but insisted he was "dead serious" and has spoken to New York Jets coach Rex Ryan about it."Me and Revis have been talking to Rex to try to do something," Asomugha said. "You may see us in the future. There's a little bit of talk going on. Either he's coming to Oakland or something else will happen."Said Revis: "Me and him have talked about it, but I can't really control that situation. I don't know if he can either."

    As much of a nightmare as it would be for opposing quarterbacks, it would be just as daunting for a team's capologist to figure out a way to pay them both. Asomugha has two years left on a three-year, $45.3 million contract that made him the highest-paid defensive back in NFL history.Revis, considered by most to be the NFL's top cover cornerback, might make more than that soon."That's a lot of money they're going to be pushing around," Revis said, "but that'll be tough for quarterbacks. I'll tell you that."Revis and Asomugha on the field together would elicit memories of Mike Haynes and Lester Hayes for the Oakland Raiders in the 1980s."In a league where the art of man-to-man has kind of gone out of style, that could bring it back," Asomugha said.

    "You always want that as a player, to have that guy on the other side of you that's equally as talented and can make plays. It fuels you a little bit. We'd been joking around with [AFC coach] Norv Turner throughout practices all week, and with [NFL commissioner] Roger Goodell. He said they probably wouldn't allow us on the same team."

    It's great that Revis and Nnamdi Asomugha want to play on the same team but I just can't see Oakland trading Nnamdi to us. Sounds great but this is definitely a pipe dream.

    Look for the Jets to pickup a CB in the draft this year. It wouldn't surprise me if Tanny trades up if there is someone available who fits the bill.

    I'd rather not have to pay him. Our pass defense was fine - Recis allowed us to shift coverage toward Lito/Lowery. In the AFC Champ, 3 guys went down - we had no chance.

    Exactly. That's one of the reasons why I think we take a DL or a LB.
