That is not correct. It was just a few years ago when Revis had arguably the best season of all time for any CB even with these rules. Asom was killing it for the Raiders for years as a true shutdown corner. Hakim (However you spell his name) is the defensive player of the year this season in a lot of people's eyes. He's been shutting down a lot of guys all season long. You take him off the Patriots defense and they're nowhere near as good. He has been dominant all season long.
