Which NFL team has the best cornerbacks? You might say it’s the Jets, with Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie. Or the Eagles, with Nnamdi Asomugha, Asante Samuel and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
But in the admittedly biased view of Miami’s Vontae Davis, the best pair of cornerbacks in football are himself and Sean Smith.
Davis was asked whether he could really put himself and Smith ahead of Revis and Cromartie, and he insisted that he could.
“You name them all and I’m putting it out there,” Davis said.
Dolphins coach Tony Sparano supported his player’s brash talk.
“I like to hear it,” Sparano said. “I think they need to play with swagger. They need to play with confidence and those two guys have confidence. Time will tell at the end of this thing whether or not they are but I’d take them.”
