Thread: So who's the best CB in the league now?

  1. #1

    So who's the best CB in the league now?

    I was having a convo with a good friend of mine about Revis and Jets football in general and he raised what I thought was an interesting question.

    Is there a clear cut best corner in the league now? Or is it just a 1a 1 b 1c type deal?


    I stopped caring because Revis is in a class of his own.


    I know J Joseph is solid and prob the best if not the best but who else?

    Best remaining CBs IMHO (in no particular order):

    Jonathan Joseph
    Lardarius Webb
    Joe Haden
    Brandon Flowers
    Champ Bailey
    Brandon Browner
    Asante Samuel


    Then there are some other guys close:

    Ike Taylor
    Carlos Rogers
    Patrick Peterson (struggled as a rookie and I thought struggled in Week 1, but has put in two solid performances in a row)
    Brandon Carr
    Tramon Williams


    Can't forget about fellow IR'd cornerback Brent Grimes either.

    Leon Hall is really solid, but he's still gaining strength back from last year's Achilles tear (thank god that didn't happen to Revis, I'll take a torn ACL over that any day of the week)

    Interesting that at pretty much any other position you can argue who the best player is but at CB its pretty clear cut by everyone Revis is #1

    Jason at nyjetscap.com wrote an excellent article about CBs and Asomugha. He said basically the reason why he was "good" was based off of reputation and the fact that the rest of the Raiders was so easily exploitable, hence the very few targets thrown his way. Now that teams are forced to challenge him, they're having success. Not to mention the fact that Aso has stupidly had to play a lot of zone and handle a lot of slot responsibilities. Exposed + square peg in round hole and that is what you get. Rogers-Cromartie is better than him now, plus Aso is not young either.

    Aso would have been a better fit here than Philly, but I'm REALLY glad we stuck with Cromartie. Much more efficient use of $$$

    I agree with most of your list, but Asante has no business being on there. He's one of the most over-rated players in the league.

    I'd have to add Charles Tillman to the list of 2nd tier guys. He's a very solid player.

    And to think people were screaming that Cro's overpaid, sack the guy etc. It was a smart pickup by the Jets and overall he has been good though still prone to daydreams in the end zone lol

    As for Asante, you might be right for the top tier list. I think he's inconsistent year-to-year, but he can be a really good playmaker. That being said, he's a tad old and has never been a man-to-man guy. I tend to give man-to-man CBs a bump too since it's a harder skillset IMO.

    Good call on Tillman...he's played really well through three games.

    P.S. You're sig makes me well up with tears.

    In my opinion, it's between Patrick Peterson, Joe Haden, and Jonathan Joseph.
