I have no doubts about Captain's drive and work ethic to be a great corner. The doubts arise from his ability.

considering he was a 7th rounder, busts his ass on every play, is a very legitimate nickel corner and a good special teamer i'd say he deserves a spot on this team.

I dont even think Cap is legitimate Nickel corner either.
Cap is a very good nickel, he just shouldn't be a #2 CB. Hell,in 2010 he was the only bright spot in the CB group. Going into this season, the majority thought he would be legit at #2.

Why do they have to use the same media player as NFL.com though??????
I almosted posted earlier how bad that site is at playing videos.. with a decently quick-enough-to-handle-videos my computer tries shut down every time...

Here's his snaps since joining the team.
09(nickel back) allowed a reception on 31 of 45 targets, 1 interception and qb's had a 98.7 qb rating against him.
10(nickel back) allowed a reception on 2 of 73 targets,3 picks and qb's had a 74.6 qb rating against him.
11(# 2 corner) allowed a reception on 45 of 61 targets(6th worst in NFL) and had a 126.9 qb(4th worse in NFL)rating against him.
He had a good 2nd year at nickel corner but wasn't good enough to beat out Richard Marshall. We should all be very concerned if no other corner beats him out for the #2 corner.
Truth is he belongs as a nickel corner in this league, not a bad thing but its a fact.
