Should Corner be a Secondary Issue?


Lately there have been rumblings about what to do about this whole Carlos Rogers situation. Rogers has expressed on more than one occasion his issues with the Redskins.

What his fate might be is up to Bruce Allen and Mike Shanahan. Of course the pending lockout has this situation on hold at the moment.

For arguments sake, let us assume Rogers will not be here next year.

Is Asomugha the answer? That's up for debate. He will demand a king's ransom of a contract, yet he will probably play up to expectations. But just don't think the Redskins will pay the price for him, and I actually think they would be much better off paying free agents at other positions, more specifically the fat guys that stand in front of the quarterback.

The answer to the cornerback quandary, in my opinion, is on the team. I think Kevin Barnes is ready to step up and take that position . He performed admirably during his three games last season. Albeit he was playing safety, not corner, but barnes might have the goods to be a great NFL corner.

In a small sample size I present to you the 2010 statistics of Barnes, DeAngelo Hall and Carlos Rogers.

Hall: 95 tackles, 16 pass deflections and 6 interceptions.

Rogers: 54 tackles, 12 pass deflections and 2 interceptions ( or as I call them miracles).

Barnes: 12 tackles, 4 pass deflections and 1 interception.

When those stats are averaged out into a 16 game season you get 64 tackles, 21 pass deflections and 5 interceptions. Not bad.

This debate at corner might not be a debate at all, and Barnes will only get better.
