This article ranks the best CB's in the NFL so far

  • http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100000 ... ornerbacks

    Puts Browner at #6, and then doesn't even mention Sherman.

    I was mad at first, but then I looked at the comments section.... LOL

    Either that's a lot of Seahawk fans, or people know Sherman is a boss! I'm guessing the latter.

    EDIT: props to HawkScanner for finding the article, BTW. I just thought this was a good way to see how many fans Sherman has lately.

  • Gil Brandt is like 111 years old.

    I do like his comment about Browner - "he can be beaten if the receiver escapes him". No sh*t, Gil -- really?? I'm pretty sure that's true for any receiver.

    You're probably like me; NFL.com comments go through your facebook account now and Facebook is blocked at my work. so while I do get NFL.com, I don't get to see the comments.

  • LOL! I cracked up when I clicked on the link and the first thing I saw was "Gil Brandt." Poor guy is probably senile and I doubt he writes his own columns. And any percentage based list can be skewed by just selecting the desired statistical inputs. :)

  • Burn Percentage? Lol......sounds like Gil just made up his own formula. Why use ACTUAL league recognized stats like interceptions, pass deflections and TD's given up when you can make up your own formula to justify your terrible list.

  • Hey, it's pretty hard to be burnt when the guy you're covering is rarely even targeted. It's like Revis; he doesn't get a lot of picks or passes defended because his guy is rarely ever open.

    Time for your nap Gil...

    Here is a taste for those at work:






    Nick Routos · Seattle, Washington

    no love for Richard Sherman...this is a pathetic list without him on it. I'm sorry I love Browner but Sherman is a much better corner, arguably top corner in the NFL with Revis out.

    Up here in WA, we're not as marketable which equals very little recognition. I'm surprized that Browner got mentioned. We can just let our secondary speak on the field, let the recievers fall where they may, and count our INT's all the way to the "BIG BOWL". GO HAWKS!!!!

    Sherman targets 54-26 competions, 371 yrds allowed, 4 picks, 1 sack fumble and 1 TD allowed.Pro Football Focus has him ranked 2nd best coverage corner to Tillman and this "GURU" can, t even mention his name? LOL.

    HOW and I mean HOOOOOWWWWW in the hell does Sherman not make this list.... By not putting him on here, it completely negates any knowledge Gil Brandt thinks he has about the game.... Completely ridiculous and without bashing Brandon Browner he is the 2ND BEST CB on our team so how is he on the list without Sherman.... Possibly a faux pas but I'm thinking more of constant reporting negligence.

    Where. The Hell. Is Richard Sherman? The guy just took NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors, and he is better in my opinion than Browner. You are high if you don't include him in this list.

    Charles Tillman and Sherman are on the same level, the top tier in the nfl. Tim Jennings is below them. You cannot judge cornerback play just on on interceptions...

    As a Giant fan, I'd throw my hat into the ring for Prince Amukamara. Dude has quietly been a great player in a secondary full of underachieving ones.

    That being said, Richard Sherman deserves to be near the (if not at the) top of this list, and he's missing. I'm not sure why.

    Wow! No optimus prime? Is this guy high? Richard Sherman is the best utdown corner in the league rite now. I like Browner too, but Sherman is really outplaying him, and its not even close. Maybe this guy should throw on some tape of Seattle games.

    Funny you say this because I read an article today that said that Sherman was second best up against Tillman. The article I read had some percentages in it too but I don't recall them being called burn percentages. Either way...the hawks have two of the best!! And the safety's are pretty good too!

    I'm surprised that Antoine Winfield failed to make the list, but then again I have an appreciation for corners who not only tackle, but also support the run and sack the QB on occasion. I think Tillman and Jennings and Browner and Sherman have to be ranked 1 and 1A for the best CB tandems in the league.

  • Gil Brandt is one of the most respected NFL writers out there- certainly near the top of the list at least in terms of his resume. Considering that, it's pretty funny reading 40+ comments all ripping him like he's just some noob. Of course, he deserved it. How can anyone not know about Richard Sherman by now?
