At the minute I would say it's Revis, Woodson then Aso. Revis is scary good. He consistently shuts down the best(Moss, TO, Andre Johnson etc) and gets INTs. Woodson is a flat out playmaker, pure and simple. Aso is the best at taking away one side but he needsto make more plays to get back to the top IMO
Revis is a great corner, he completely blanketed Moss the first time we played them this year and got Randy really frusturated. Revis is a pretty quiet guy too, but he did make exception to Moss not really respecting him and was jaqing at him throughout the game. Revis is definitely a top tier defender in the NFL; he has size, athleticism, ball skills, and is a competitor.
Aso is right there with Revis, he just is in a tough spot in Oakland. He was the epitomy of a shutdown corner last year, I haven't seen much of the Raiders and he may have regressed a bit, but he and Revis are probably 1A and 1B as others here have said.
Charles Woodson is older but he is playing at such a high level, not only can he take a top receiver out of the game but he still has the ability to make huge plays whether is be a game clinching diving pick or a sack. One of my personal favorite players in the league. Champ may not be the same player he was 5 years ago but he still needs to be mentioned in this discussion.
The last guy who could be mentioned in this top tier (could be forgetting someone) is Asante. Every Pats fan, player, and coach knew how big losing him would be no matter what anyone says; he was going to be our shutdown guy entering his prime but as in years passed we refused to pay him and this time it really bit us in the ass.
It's definitely Revis...for some reason, I've been getting more Oakland games this year and Nnamdi's performance hasn't been as good this season as it was last year or the year before.
Also, if DRC is the a top 3 corner, then Antoine Winfield is #1, but that is only in "Homer World", right?
I think Feniekz is just sticking with DRC because he has been saying him for a long time so he wants to stay consistent, anyone being rational or honest with themselves knows DRC's name should be nowhere near best corner in the league period.
