Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Nnamdi Asomugha is struggling. He certainly hasn’t been great in coverage (particularly for a guy who signed a humongous five-year, $60 million deal this offseason), and his tackling has suffered.

But he’s also struggling with his adjustment to a new time zone and with living in a different part of the country, and you have to wonder if that’s the reason Asomugha is missing tackles and allowing more receivers to beat him for catches? Could be.

"Here, things aren't as familiar," Asomugha said, via CSN Bay Area. "The biggest reason is because when I got here, we went straight into football. I didn't get here in March, so I didn't have months to get acclimated. It's the end of September and I'm still getting acclimated to the area and just using my down time to familiarize myself with the East Coast and with football out here."

CSN Philly has another explanation. 1) Asomugha is playing in a completely new defense, which features more zone coverage than Asomugha’s comfort zone of man to man, and it takes some time for him to adjust, particularly with the lockout shortening the offseason; 2) Eagles defensive coordinator Juan Castillo hasn’t figured out how to use Asomugha, Asante Samuel and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie in an effective manner.

But some of the blame has to fall on Asomugha. Like, for instance, when he was badly beaten by Giants receiver Victor Cruz last Sunday.

“You are paying (Asomugha) millions of dollars to make this play,” NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger told CSN Philly. “The Eagles have bracket coverage with the safety on the other side, but it is Nnamdi’s play.

“He should be looking for the ball but he’s not. Cruz is looking for the ball. His head is up, his eyes are up. Nnamdi should see that and realize, ‘The ball’s in the air,’ but he doesn’t react fast enough.

“By the time he looks up, Cruz has position on him and is going for the ball. But still there is no way Nnamdi should let him catch it. You’ve got to strip it, knock it out of his hands. He lets (Cruz) take it away. It’s a nice play (by Cruz) but come on. This is Nnamdi Asomugha.”

Yes, but it’s a Nnamdi Asomugha who clearly is out of sorts in his new location and in his new defense.

The talent is there, he'll come around. While Jets fans maybe happy that Aso didn't end up here based on the way he is playing right now, nothing better can be said about Cro either. They are both struggling.

Hes not better than Revis if he can't play zone. Nnamdi would have been a better fit here but he chose his fate of being exposed. The Eagles were overrated to begin with, their DC never coached defense before in the NFL.

lets give Cro a break they are going after him because of Revis and I like Cro's attitude and I am willing to bet Cro will be making plays for us as soon as the defense as a whole figure out how to assist Cro to make teams pay. I think it is going to happen. "THE CROW'S NEST & REVIS ISLAND" I think that Fits.

Cro's numbers are double that os Aso's. Cro had one bad week. Aso's had 3. You be the judge.

The whole getting used to football on the East Coast excuse? I could've sworn its the same game no matter what coast you play it on.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

Good point. So that would lead us to ask Aso why is it that Cro didn't suffer a huge drop off but instead IMPROVED on his play on the East Coast last year?

I'm glad we didn't get him. Mainly for cap reasons but also because I think there would be problems between him and Revis. Maybe it is just me but I think they would hate each other. Especially with the media analyzing both of them if they were on the same team.

He went to Philly because he thought, like the Raiders, no one will throw on him.

He knew if he was here with Revis, he would be getting thrown out.

So now they ARE throwing at him, he's being shown as human.

I wanted him on this team in the offseason, but I had told my friends I believe he was a bit over rated. Not in the sense that he isn't a good player, but more so for the fact that he isn't near the talent revis is. Oakland lined him up on teams number 2 wide receivers and used their other corners and safetys to double up on the teams number 1. Nnamdi also wasn't asked to follow any given player around, rather he just played on his side. He has never / isn't capable of doing what revis has done with the jets. I do think Aso will turn things around and prove he's a top 5 CB, but in the long run...it might have turned out to be a good thing that Nnamdi didn't want to play here.
