Again, this isn’t saying Asomugha’s not a good football player. He just didn’t play the part of a top-three cornerback — as he long has been considered — in 2011. Victor Cruz lit him up in not one, but two games, earning Cruz the nickname of “Nnamdi Killer” by Michael Irvin. As it turned out, the Eagles’ pass defense was much worse than expected in their “Dream Team” season. In Oakland, he was left alone and told to lock down his opponent. In Philly last year, he was asked to wear multiple hats at once, and his performance took a step backward. Good player, great guy — just wasn’t as good as advertised last season. - Peter Schrager
