I thought this was a VERY interesting stat

Doesn't pertain to fantasy much but...

Cowboys CB Terence Newman didn't get beat for a single touchdown last season. And if I'm not mistaken, he allowed less than 400 yards to receivers he covered as well.

That is interesting. Those numbers are misleading in some sort of way. I like him and think he's a good corner but he isn't quite Deion Sanders.

Too bad I can't remove the image of him patheticly trying to arm-tackle Chris Cooley back in December. :-o :,-(

Actually, I think it was one TD ... I've heard this stat from numerous sources (NFL Live, other forums, Dallascowboys.com, etc.).

Nevertheless, Newman was definitely the most underrated player of any position last year. He has an outstanding year, but unfortunately, few INTs = no Pro Bowl for DBs. But he definitely had a Pro Bowl caliber year.

I don't know if Newman will ever have the INT numbers to make him a household name, but believe me when I say he could start for any team in the league.

Doesn't look like a #3 receiver to me. ;-D

He really is one of the most underrated players in the league. The fact that he was barely seen during the games shows how good of a cover corner he is.

He did take his lumps during his second year, but this last year he should have made the Pro Bowl!

I love Newman but the NFC CB position is pretty solid and I don't think he should have been on the Pro Bowl Roster. You're talking about Ronde Barber, Nathan Vasher, and DeAngelo Hall. I'd have a tough time saying Newman had a better year than any of those guys.

hall didn't deserve to make the pro bowl last year... ken lucas, newman, and sheldon brown all deserved it over him...

Vasher is great (see my AV), and makes fantastic plays on the ball, but I'm not sure he is better than Newman. That says alot when you give up no, or maybe one TD all year. Nate can get beat, but he will also give you the big play. Big plays get more notice, but I would pefer solid play every down myself.
