15 Interceptions in 10 years, ONe year he had 8, never had one other year with more than 3, 1, 2 and 0. His PD are extremely low each year for a Shutdown Man Cover Corner.
To this day.. I will never see what apparently everyone else sees in this guy.
Nnamdi was THE definition of a shutdown corner when he was in Oakland. NOBODY threw on him. Revis had more completions on him than Nnamdi had pass attempts against him because he was just too dominating. The couple years before he went to the Eagles were probably some of the best CB years in history. The eagles just killed him though
No one ever threw to him.. how could he be concidered a shut down corner.. He didnt do ANYTHING before his 8 interception year, that would even hint towards people NOT wanting to throw to him. This statement has never made any sense.. It took Nnamdi almost 8 years to get the Ints Richard Sherman has now... Let alone pass defenses. He cant intercept the ball, he barely knocks down passes.. but hes a shutdown corner? Geesh
Sorry I wont buy this line of thinking.. I watched him play.. Ive watched his stats go no where for 10 years.. and then I watched the eagles pay him for ONE year he actually did well. Took him three years to get those 8 interceptions.. What changed after 3 years of watching him that teams decided to all of a sudden throw his way for him to get those ints... then they never threw his way again and he never compiled more than 2 interceptiosn or 10 pass defenses after that. ::shrug:: Whatever, seems ridiculous still to me to call him a shutdown corner since he never proved that..
Hell Marcus Trufant has better numbers than Nnamdi. And he had Kelly Jennings playing on the other side for 5 years. You telling me theyd rather throw on Trufant than Kelly Jennings? lol
