So, yes I think shutdown CB is more rare than QB. I mean I consider Manning, Brady,Brees and Rodgers to be the elite QB's of this generation. How many shutdown CB's can you name?
I agree, shutdown corner is a rare breed than the other positions I think. However, an elite QB can win some games even with a bad team.
