Poll: Who was the best Raiders cornerback ever?

Share

With Nnamdi Asomugha wrapping up his career on Friday, it begs the question of how he stacks up against the greatest Raiders cornerbacks ever.

    Willie Brown by miles…Jeez he coached half the guy’s on the lists in here.Imagine Willie and Rod Woodson on the same team in their respective youths.

  • the authoritative dr robert

    Is that how u announce urself at parties?

    Seems about right Screeech.

  • AutumnThunderstorm

    Thank you for sharing his bio line.

  • AutumnThunderstorm

    Lol

  • The Beeeeech Dawg

    Always 2 steps behind

    That’s why my Blog Brahs and I urge you to never change

    FRESH STYLE

  • AutumnThunderstorm

    Two All-pro selections, not just probowl, all-pro.

  • Twinkle

    I had to….few in here ever saw him play and the man basically defined the CB position.Al had a great eye for corners….we always seemed to have a beauty or even two.

  • The Beeeeech Dawg

    Brohams, the Zen Dawg’s Life Coaching session just ended and the Dawg made $350 for a half hour of total B.S.!

    Whenever my client asked a question I told her to listen to the soothing sound of the miniature waterfalls for answers

    When she asked if I understood her pain I told her to study the grooves of the banzai trees for reason

    By the end, she was so moved by the direction I was moving her in that she gave me a super sweet hand jiggity and offered to buy me Pina Coladas later at the pool!

    Man, the Dawgy Dawg shoulda thought of this amazing scam years ago!

    WORD UP TO FRESH YOGA SALUTATIONS

  • AutumnThunderstorm

    Probably the biggest if, could have been in Raider history that never was but should’ve happened, was having Woodson and Nnamdi on the field at the same time when they were both in their prime.
    could’ve been the best CB tandem ever.

  • TrevJo

    Allen was on the sideline listening to the Patriots and is responsible for the Woodson blitz that became the infamous Snow Job. Sadly Walt Coleman turned his gamesmanship triumph into franchise tragedy.

  • chappy23us

    I can tell you the worst GM in the history of the franchise is-Reggie McKenzie!

  • BigBenRexor

    Hell, even having them this year as our two safties would’ve helped.

  • inonewordraider

    of those guys only saw the careers of woodson and nnamdi, woodson being better because he made plays
    you’re pretty good though when know one throws in you direction

  • BigBenRexor

    Well if you remember, Woodson was the reason they torched Nnamdi so much in his first two years.

  • chappy23us

    Time for a more important poll: Will RM be relieved of his duties Monday morning?

  • BigBenRexor

    We’re enjoying fond memories. Don’t be a killjoy by making us think about our Future.

  • Twinkle

    The mo Lester actually caught the ball a lot …then of course the league banned the use of ‘stickum’.

  • Blackholepriest

    Nah that would easily be Hayes and Haynes……….period

    Best in history of the NFL……..period

  • Chino

    Lol could be chimdi and Adams covering decker and thomas

  • chappy23us

    Hate to do it but I’m sick of just talking about the past. The truth is we have no future as long as Reggie is calling the shots

  • BigBenRexor

    Gotta give it to Al, for all the players we’ve been lacking over the years, CB was never one of them

  • chappy23us

    Why isn’t Larry Brown on the list?

  • inonewordraider

    I remember when I was so happy we traded for Deangelo Hall

  • BigBenRexor

    Never speak his name in here again.

  • Twinkle

    Truth!

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Who was the best Raider corner of all time?
    Hell, that’s no contest.

  • funnyfalcon

    I’ll be honest, I didn’t see McCloughan. Saw a lot of Willie though.

  • chappy23us

    Bigger bust: Deangelo Hall or D.J. Hayden?

  • BLACKBONES

    I remember Lester Hayes on one side & Mike Haynes on the other with Jack Tatum in the middle Each team seems to excel at one position or another but Al Davis sure as hell knew his CB’s.

  • Chino

    Zone guy in a press man d. What a shame. He’s worked out great everywhere else. But yeah I was excited as ever too

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Blackholepriest•21 minutes ago
    Most people never saw Kent and Willie play.
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Well,they could go watch a video.
    Who do you say Priest?

  • Chino

    Can’t call hayden a bust yet

  • BigBenRexor
  • SnBG

    CWood is no where near Hays.

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Yeah, Al loved him some corners.

  • Chino

    Sure we do. Just not a very good one

  • SnBG

    As I think about the year and our QB situation I think the situation with Flynn was botched. We should have allowed him to rehab his arm. Should have told him to relax and we’ll put you back in when the arm and line are both better. I don’t know how much Markie played in this drama but it seems fairly clear he was pushing for Pryor.

  • PlunkforHOF

    My fav would have to be Lester the Molester.
    BTW just saw American Hustle. Good flick. Great story and acting. And Jennifer Lawrence…. whoah..

  • Twinkle

    Hate to be a cut and paste specialist but this should be required reading in here.

  • chappy23us

    Who let Reggie McKenzie in to this discussion???

  • Chino

    Then routt looked better after namdi left. And he looked like crap soon after

  • BigBenRexor

    Well he did have like 5 picks by the time he was cut, but his playing 10 yards off his man was pretty unforgivable.

  • chappy23us

    this whole mess is all Old Man Al’s fault….blah, blah, blah

  • Twinkle

    Rehab it from what?….overuse ? lmfao

  • SnBG

    I hate to say it but I used to laugh at Brown because he got beat so badly.

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    The best Raider corner of all time was Willie Brown.

  • Chino

    Then the league changed an we wound up with guys like routt who would get flagged every time they threw towards him. Too physical.

  • SnBG

    Perhaps but I liked Lester’s style more.

  • Twinkle

    Better question might be who was second out of Lester and Mike?Priest has ponied up but I couldn’t choose between the two mainly for fear of dissing one of em.

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    I loved Lester.
    But the best Raider corner of all time was still Willie Brown,
