In blog by yahoo sports writer Doug Farrar, our cornerback Brandon Flowers was mentioned in the debate for best conerback in the NFL. Along with Darrelle Revis, Champ Bailey, Charles Woods and Nnamdi Asomugha.
The article was mainly about Nnamdi but the fact that Flowers was mentioned with these guys is great because he definitely deserves it.
"Perhaps no position is harder to keep at that level than that of cornerback; the myth of the shutdown corner is far greater than the actual evidence of such individuals. Since Oakland Raiders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha(notes)was selected with the 31st overall pick in the 2003 NFL draft, there have been a host of names orbiting his -Champ Bailey(notes), Asante Samuel(notes),Charles Woodson(notes), Darrelle Revis(notes),Brandon Flowers(notes) - but in terms of year-to-year consistency, Asomugha stands alone. For years, he's been given the greatest compliment any pass defender can be: quarterbacks simply don't throw his way, and it's come to a point unseen since the salad days of Deion Sanders in San Francisco and Dallas."
