    He's afraid to hit anyone. For all of the INT's he gets, he gives up too many TD's on horrendous "tackling" attempts where he just falls near the receiver.

    Deion didnt tackle a soul but yet he is applauded as one of the greatest corners ever....its about not putting him in situations where he really has to make a 1 on 1 tackle. I like what Asante brings to the table. He is a playmaker

    I understand your point Pman, but can you really compare Asante and Dion as far as coverage is concerned? Asante jumps routes, making high rish/reward plays. Dion would just blanket receivers catching whatever came his way, much like Revis does nowadays. Granted, my favorite Dion moment involved Rathman carrying him 10 yards...no that was entertainment!

    'Can someone please teach this man to tackle?' Very original and in-depth comment. Have you been out of the country and tivo'ing the games the last few years, because you're a day late and a dollar short.....
