Tannenbaum on Nnamdi: “You win some, you lose some”

Jets G.M. Mike Tannenbaum joined PFT Live on Tuesday to talk about the pursuit of cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha.

Asomugha signed with the Eagles at a time when the Jets were believed to be the favorites to land the former Raider.

Tannenbaum initially said, “You win some, you lose some” regarding the chase for Nnamdi.  Tannenbaum then provided more details regarding the pursuit of Asomugha — and the eventual Plan B pursuit of Antonio Cromartie.

    And this case, going with plan B, you lose. Nnamdi > Cromartie.

    actually Cromartie had better numbers in almost every category than Nnamdi…and he played more playoff games last season than Nnamdi has seen in his career…so who really loses

    Why do people not understand that the eagles didn’t overspend on anyone, so they still have cap room and can make even more if they decide to make some moves. We don’t have to cut anyone or have any dead money going to next year. And most of the deals we did, we can get out of next year and have no dead money. The only one that would hurt is if we cut namdi, and we all know that aint happenin

    Nnamdi and Revis would have been hellish. But the Jets have larger issues.

    In most cases when it comes to free agency or trades Mr T usually wins. Hes made way more good deals and got his man in free agency more than he hasnt. Cant get them all, i am real happy with what the jets have done though so far. They have said they arent done yet with trades and free agency yet either.

    Even when they are better than they’ve been in 41 years… the Jets still BLOW! lol

    Nnamdi would have been a nice luxury to have. Jets will romp through the league anyway.(here comes the thumbs down)

    Of coarse Comartie has better numbers, Revis is lockdown, and Comartie is second target. Teams dont throw at Nnamidi.

    ill give you a thumbs up Revis haha….the only reason the Jets have so much hate is because people dont like to see them succeed…i for one am very excited

    Management gave him one chance to sign with the Jets, he didn’t take the offer (obviously) and there goes Nnamdi hopes of EVER getting a SB ring.

    Jets romp through the league? Until January right, much like the Chargers.

    “you win some, you lose some”

    sounds like something he says after afc championship games

  13. infectorman says: Aug 2, 2011 6:30 PM

    romp thru the league?

    last 4 years:
    11-5
    9-7
    9-7
    4-12

    “romping ” thru the league, just ain’t in their DNA

    What did Rex Ryan say?

What kind of substance are you on? It’s been almost 50 years since the J-E-T-S won.

    Yeah infectorman 2007 has a lot to do with 2111 in the NFL. You sure know your football

    Funny how some Green Beans fans rationalize that Cromartie has “better numbers” than Nnamdi. Does that include tackles? Didn’t think so.

    actually, last year Nnamdi had 19 tackles…Cromartie had 42….maybe do some research before posting something stupid

    FAILED!

    Funny thing is the Jets still have the best starting cornerback due in football. A. Cromartie is better than A.R. Cromartie, and Revis is substantially bettet than Nnamdie. Revis has played better competition, in a better division, on a higher stage, and is younger. Nnamdi covers one side of the field, which is why they never throw his way. Revis trails the best receiver week in and week out. Plus the Jets roll coverage his way, forcing quarterbacks to throw his way. No comparison
