I believe when Charles “Peanut” Tillman and Nathan Vasher are healthy, there’s not a better cornerback tandem in the NFL. They are simply the best
Their ability to create turnovers is the main reason i chose them. In 2005, Nathan Vasher had 8 Int’s and Charles Tillman had 5 Int’s tied for the NFC lead with 13 combined interceptions with Carolina’s Chris Gamble and Ken Lucas. I think losing Vasher last season was a big loss to the defense, because the games he did play in he made a huge impact. Also, Charles Tillman seems to try hard every single down. Since Vasher and Tillman have played together, which began in 2004. they have combined for 30 int’s. WOW! Those are amazing stats.
I believe that Tillman is very underrated because of all the other great players on that defense. The only other top cornerback tandems that are almost as good as Tillman and Vasher are: Antonio Cromartie and Quentin Jammer of the San Diego Chargers, Champ Bailey and Dre Bly of the Denver Broncos, and Al Harris and Charles Woodson of the Green Bay Packers. You could even throw in new Eagle Asante Samuel and Sheldon Brown as a good cornerback tandem.
In the end, if both stay healthy they are the best corneback tandem in the league and I hope to see that next season when they get on the field.
