    Interesting, Colts will play those top five teams six times next season. Wonder how Manning will fare?

    I guess I wouldn't list Colts any higher either. By default, you lose both starters, you have to put them at the bottom.

    Did they really spell it Samuels?

    :)

    Samuel has been playing consistently well for a while now, though it wasn't until last year he really broke out.

    Not sure if this is subjective or statistical ranking. And it is TSN. But remember he's being ranked as part of a supposedly top 4 unit on a defense that overall likely would rank in the top 2-3 and this is AFC ranking not NFL.

    Asomugha may be physically talented, but last season was the 1st of his 4 year career in which he recorded an INT. He has never made a big play in a big game, because Oakland's never been in any. I would wait before elevating him to elite status. Give it time to breathe a little. Among Cbs on bad teams, Leigh Bodden is not as physically gifted, but has a longer track record.

    Crap list. McAlister is a piece of junk, Nnamdi isn't better than Samuel yet either. Champ should be numbers 1 through 5, it's not even close.

    Actually after a half a good year...anyone who says that his play in the first of the season was just as good is missing it...How many people would have franchised him after 8 games??

    McAlister isnt junk..big part of the Ravens D

    Nnamdi has been playing spectacular for 2 years straight. He didnt record and INT the year before but had 8 this year and if u watch him..you see how good he is. Hes a big part of why Raiders pass D was #1 i think

    what do u mean "not better yet" ? you act like Samuel has been shutdown for more than half a season.


    not bashing Samuel..i defend him when talking about CBs but Asamougha is a very good player

    Deangelo Hall is not anywhere near a top 5 CB in the NFC. He has top 5 talent and runs his mouth like he is Deion Sanders. The turth is he was embarassed week after week last season.

    Falcons have the 2 most overrated players ever. Mike Vick and DeAngelo Hall.

    They probably look at it as they are part of a defensive unit which, as a whole, is very talented. They likely figure that this cb unit will be good based on what is around it.

    Agreed. I know some here hate to hear it, but the kid can play. He's steadily gotten better since his rookie year.
