Nnamdi and Burgess look to be our two Pro Bowl players in 2006.

They are both deserving, but to me, 2006 has been Nnamdi's coming out party!!!

He was drafted highly out of Cal. As many of you know I follow the Bears closely and was stoked to see him drafted into the Silver and Black.

It was not an easy learning curve for the young corner. I called him toast many times, because he was always burnt.

In fact, many were calling for Sanford and Wash to be our corners this year.

It took until his fourth year and fourth game for Nnamdi to get his first pick and now he has 7 (Tied for 1st in the League)!!! He also has a TD and a forced fumble!!!

I took serious notice of who was giving up the yards yesterday and most of the catches were thrown at the 80 year old Tyrone Poole. #38 was near 60% of the catches!!!

Nnamdi had a helluva game, only giving up one catch to Chad Johnson and that was 4 inches from being knocked away!!!

His left handed grab of Carson Palmer's 2nd Quarter interception is one for the 2006 highlight reel. That was truly Awesome-Muah!!!

Here are some links for background on Nnamdi:

All in all he is one helluva CB and a person!!! In fact, he is moving up the poll for favorite Raider!!!
