Probably speaks more to the competitive nature of the two.

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

dont know why there is so much hate on captain. its not his fault any moderately sized DB on this team can't take his starting position away from him.

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 kid Captain and love his heart and effort. But I will be thrilled on the day he is not matching up against #2 WRs.

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.

I think that he meant "like Steve Smith" in the sense of the aggressiveness, attitude and work ethic.

Hopefully, next time coach says we are good at DT, people will realize it doesn't actually mean poo.

The coaches think we are good everywhere when we start the season and in reality there will be issues that were misjudged. The key is keeping it to a minimum. I believe DT is one of those positions Rivera just wants solid players at, not everyone can be a superstar. Another DE however is a must for any chance...Hardy needs to step up big time this season.

I am banking on our new injured 5th rounder to win the # 2 corner job just because captain was so bad last year as a starter year. Sad thing is Gamble was on the other side locking down the opposing teams # 1 receiver.

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.
