Everyone was exposed last year, especially the more physical corners b/c of the new rule enforcement, now that they have had a year to adjust I think that they will be better this year.

Until Law proves his is Top 5 CB again. He should be left off the discussion.

If he was so good still (without question)... Shouldn't he then have a contract?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't he go to the Pro-Bowl last year?

I am not sure if he did or did not. ESPN does not have him listed that I can see.

But if he were still considered a top 5 CB (which he could be again), then I am sure that would merit at least a 1 in 32 chance of a contract offer.

Until he signs somewhere and proves he is over his injury, he should not be considered a top 5 CB.

Thats fair. Although I would disgaree slightly and overlook the injury in this type of speculative who's-the-best assesment. Just like CWoodson - I consider CWoodson to be one of the most dominating CBs in the NFL, but he cant stay healthy for more than half a yr.

Similarly if Law is healthy, he has to make this list.

A player that doesn't play in the majority of his team's games... Should be disqualified.

I love Law and want him to be a Raider more than anything. I am huge C-Wood fan... But health is as much a part of their performance as not. If they can't play... it doesn't matter how good they could be.

1. Champ Bailey
2.Patrick Surtain
3.Chris McAlister
4.Marcus Trufant
5.Antoine Winfield




I would love to put Quentin Jammer on this list but his interception numbers arent ther yet even though he always has lockdown coverage(i know the chargers are always at the bottom
of the league in pass D but the other starting corner is Sammy Davis and only one safety is servicable...) . He had surgery in the offseason to correct his vision which caused him to misjudge the deep balls(as evidenced by that pass to santana moss in the playoff game going right through his hands) which was the same type of surgery Andre Johnson had a couple years back...

does anyone else think it's awesome that the Chiefs could have the best Cornerback Tandum in the league. Assuming Law is healthy and the Chiefs sign him, they could have 2 of the top 5 cornerbacks in the league.

Just want to mention this *cough*raiders suck*cough* I once was worried that Moss would kill the Chiefs d but now I am worried for the Oakland D trying to stop the best team in the NFL. Chiefs go 16-0 is my bold prediction.

I like Rolle and McAlister the most personally. Although, it doesn't hurt that they have Ed Reed back there with them.
