Nice Read: Bucky Brooks speculates on Nnamdi Asomugha's fit with the 49er defensive s

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000157076/article/nnamdi-asomugha-should-bounce-back-on-san-francisco-49ers
Good read. Very informative.

Nnamdi strikes me as a very intelligent guy, who's gonna figure out a way to get the job done.

Good read. Thank You.
Nice read
Read this yesterday I agree 100%.
Good read, but didn't really say anything we didn't already know. The "good read" part, for me, was the breakdown of our coverage schemes. We already knew Nnamdi's strengths and the fact he was misused in Philadelphia.
"Checking in at 6-foot-2, 210 pounds, he used his exceptional combination of length, athleticism and toughness to maul receivers in coverage. He would vary techniques between one- or two-hand quick jams and an assortment of shadow movements to knock receivers off their routes"

It'll be nice to see if he can mirror the physicality of the Seattle DBs. Either getting away with raping the receivers with blatant holding/Defensive PI and force the refs to either let us play at that level too, or take it away from Seattle.
Thanks - good aticle. I always like Brooks - I don't always agree w/him but he backs up his statements with facts and information that influences his opinions.
Wow - Is the NFL an "arms race" or what. One side get's big receivers (TO, Fitz, Johnson, etc) the other bid DBs. So then small shifty receivers come back in vogue (Welker, Cruz, Harvin, etc), and the game evolves all over again.

Got to be careful not to plan to fight "the last battle" or just copy the opposition (big DBs) and make sure your plan is solely on what it will take to win the next battle. Unfortunately, in our division, we are now going to face Fitz AND Harvin. Our DC has a big job on his hands coming up with the plan to stop both types.
