    Re: My Offseason Dream 2009

    As far as Nnamdi Asomugha goes, I feel he is going to demand the biggest contract in the history of defensive players, and we just set that record last off season. It's a complete waste for us to bring in Asomugha for that kind of money.

    Our corners are responsible for the line of scrimmage to around 15 yards down field in the cover 2. Asomugha is a SHUT DOWN corner. Mike Shanahan called him the most underrated player in the history of the NFL. In 2006 he hauled in 8 interceptions. And teams learned from this. he sticks his man and there's almost no way the ball will be thrown his way.

    In 2007 he was only thrown at 31 times.

    An average NFL team ran about 53 plays from scrimmage per game.

    Assuming Asomugha is on the field all game, he was thrown at 3.656% of the plays.
    Only 10 of those 31 attempts were completions so: 1.179% of plays resulted in a completion against Nnamdi Asomugha... ridiculous.


    In 2008 teams ran close to 62 plays per game.

    Asomugha was thrown at even less, just 27 times.

    Again, assuming he's on the field every play, he was thrown at on 2.621% of plays.

    Only 8 of these 27 attempts were completed.

    So 0.777% of plays resulted in a completion against Nnamdi Asomugha. That's a truly remarkable
    stat. Maybe more impressive than any sports statistic I have ever seen.

    This guy is unbelievable at what he does, I'd love to see him in purple if we didn't run the cover 2... which I'm beginning to like less and less.

    My best guess is the Raiders franchise tag him again.

    Interesting.....(Seriously) What else would we have to send with him?

    He is currently under contract until 2014.

    Can't remember but they seemed to have a couple of thier RB's and thier backup QB on thier FA list.....

    Could be a tough deal to work.
    Why not just hold out for Brady? Everyone thinks they are gonna let Cassel go but in reality Cassel will be a free agent if they don't resign him, they don't want to let him walk and get nothing in return, and they can't afford to have him and
    Brady making big money, so there only option is going to be to trade Brady.

    I'm all about accuracy. that .000083034 makes a big difference in a football game.

    And just copy and pasting saves me some keystrokes, as does hitting the delete key several times to get down to sig figs. So, I don't care.

    Don't fool yourself, deep down inside it bothers you more than grammatical and spelling mistakes.

    Interesting observation......For me my friend, I kindof look at what the staff has done in the past with respect to signing FA's of significance.
    That trend is to stick with a cat coming off his first contract.

    For this position though, I am thinking they might deviate from that a bit but not very far.
    Maybe a guy who is on or coming off his second contract would still fit thier age limit on said player......

    Tom, although he is a prize to get, might not be what they are looking for.


    Again, all speculation when one thinks about it and it can cause a mans slightly balding head to hurt a bit when he tries to figure out all the permiantations on guys that might come available via a trade this year.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    highly debatable they trade their franchise QB after just a season removed from MVP and the best statistical season by a QB ever!!...

    they have many other options that just trading Brady.... Cassell will probably take less to re-sign and be Brady's backup..

    Realistically, Brady at worst gets traded in the 2010 season if he doesnt fully recover or show any signs of being the passer he once was....
