    erm... no.

    youve got that backwards. think about it. lets lump these stats together for ease of use

    asmougha 126 targets = 11 ints, 54 pdef
    taylor 377 targets = 11 ints, 99 pdef

    asmougha
    int = 8.73% chance per target
    pdef = 42.85% per target

    taylor
    int =2.91% per target
    pdef =26.25% per target.

    which is exactly why he gets targeted more. as for the tackles, well, one should expect that if you get more targets and have a lower pdef/int% rate that you would get a much higher # of tackles.

    i would trade taylor for namdi in half a heartbeat.

    The way he is playing right now, I'd have a hard time believing you could find a better value. Asomugha (when in the right system) and Revis are definitely 1A and 1B right now, but with Taylor's recent performance and comparatively low salary, he's tough to beat.

    I love Ike but i'd trade him for Asomugha any day. Asomugha's damn near a blanket when in the right system. He's always struck me as a "Steelers" type player if there is such a thing. A very smart, talented, and tough football player. That being said Ike's no slouch either. I just wish he could catch the damn ball! Other than that he's pretty damn solid.

    and im glad YOURE not in charge of the steelers or we would be chock full of second rate players. there is no pitt oppenent in the AFCN that has a better QB/WR team than rivers/jackson. one of the diffrences between taylor namdi is that namdi was the sole bright spot on the raiders D. taylor is surrounded by one of the best Ds in football year in and year out which is the ONLY reason he has ANY rings. were taylor on the raiders ... lets just say "bright spot" isnt the term i would use. as far as zone v man coverage, zone requires awareness of everything in your zone. man requires awareness of one guy and a much higher level of athleticism.

    im sorry man, but if you seriously cant see that namdi is the superior CB then youre quite simply naive.

    Ike Taylor gets balls throw his way more often. These stats are very misleading. Not sayig Ike Taylor isn't an elite CB because he def is.

    Ignoring the salary, I'd take Revis or Nnamdi, but when you factor in the salary, we're actually getting really good value for Ike.

    Factoring in other things, such as Revis' penchant for hold outs (held out twice already, and rumors around these parts (if you recall, I work less than 5 miles from the Jets training complex) is that he's ready to do so again.)

    Right now, I'm happy with the job Ike has done, and happy with our DBs overall so far this year.
