    His impact has been unspeakable.

    Wish we had Manning the rest of the way. Would love to see how both of them played as Wade's defense ramps up.

    Other players on the defense get more pub, but IMO this guy is the defensive MVP.

    We haven't had a receiver really have a good/dominant performance against us this season. Brandon Marshall comes to mind, but one of his big catches was against Joseph, but it was perfect coverage, and then on one he made Allen his b*tch, but nothing else i can think of.

    Well, I speak about it anyway. Joseph is playing at a level that only Revis has surpassed. Flat out, Joseph has been better than Nnamdi. The greatest free agent acquisition in Houston Texan history. OK, it was a low bar to jump over. But, the bar is set very high now.

    Yeah, he is definitely the best FA in Houston Texans history. The question is though who would be #2?? Lol!!

    YUP!! 1560 Has plenty of Yahoo Sports guys on (Duh, YahooSportsRadio is 1560), but many of them have stated that it was either something like the "most underrated FA signing" and I've even heard "The 'BEST' FA acquisition signing".

    Same here!

    Although, Rackers should be mentioned. Oh, nevermind... Kickers aren't players. *dripping in :sarcasm: *

    Yeah, when I asked the question he was the only guy that stuck out in my mind. No one else really did. I'd have to say Smith as well.

    I'll admit I was disappointed the Texans didn't get Asomugha, but Joseph was a brilliant signing.

    Houston has a shutdown corner!

    I was talking to my buddy the other day (DC_TxTech) and he asked me if we could swap for Nnamdi right now at this moment and money was not a factor, would I do it.

    I thought about it for a second and I said confidently, "No". The reason being is J-Jo has played and surpassed every expectation that we had. He is finally our lockdown corner that helps us wreak havoc on QB's.

    Im not discounting Nnamdi's ability in any way, even though he's had some trouble adjusting to a new defensive scheme. Im saying that we know what we have in J-Jo and he has not disappointed in any facet of his game.

    The dude is legit and should be recognized among the top CB's in the game at this point.

    I probably wouldnt just for age purposes. But for play, as amazing as Joseph's been, Nnamdi is still a better player overall.

    Yeah but would you take the chance in hoping Nnamdi gels in our system even knowing how phenomenal JJ has been playing?

    Kind of the old addage (sp.), "a bird the hand is better than two in the bush".

    Antonio or wade smith.

    Antonio most likely but considering the contract and the productivity of wade I could see a good case being made. Wade has been a good steady starter.

    Eh, yeah, I dunno. I'm sure Nnamdi would be fine in our system, and will be fine in the Eagles' system.
