Quit Dreaming About Nnamdi AsomughaJuly 23rd, 2011
Joe almost breaks out into uncontrollable laughter the way some Bucs fans pine for free agent cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha is worse than the way Joe pines for Rachel Watson or lusts over Courtney the Bartender.
Why, to read and hear the same Bucs fans carry on, it’s like this Asomugha is the cure for all the Bucs’ ills, that a Super Bowl ring is guaranteed with his acquisition.
Joe has detailed previously why this is sheer folly. Not only is a cornerback not a need, the Bucs have much bigger needs and holes to fill before they go throwing a bank vault at a cornerback.
It seems Peter King believes the same. On Twitter, the longtime SI NFL writer was asked where Asomugha will land and the Bucs were not among the teams King offered.
@Just_Nehpets: Where are the most likely places you see Nnamdi ends up?
@SI_PeterKing Guesswork: Dall, Phil, Hou, NYJ longshot. Hear he wants Jets.
Generally, what Captain Lou Albano wants with the Jets, Captain Lou Albano gets. And Captain Lou Albano makes no secret to how much he worships big-named cornerbacks.
If Captain Lou Albano is unable to re-sign Santonio Holmes — who would be a better pickup for the Bucs than Asomugha — Joe fully expects Captain Lou Albano to sign Asomugha.
