  • Nathan Vasher signed to a 5 year Extension.

    http://www.chicagobears.com/news/New...?story_id=3550

    I posted this in the Bears discussion, but might as well post it here.

    Adam Schefter is reporting that the deal is worth 28 million with a 14 million dollar signing bonus.

    There are also reports that the Bears are now in discussion for a contract extension w/ Peanut Tillman.

    ^Thanks to Eaglez.Fan for the sweet sig!

                Tillman's contract better be at least as much as Vasher's. So many people think Vasher is better but he's a bit undersized and doesn't cover the number 1 receiver every week like Tillman. Vasher's ball skills go well with Tillman's style, it's kind of similar to Woodson and Harris in Green Bay, the number 2 guy is the better play maker and the number 1 is better in coverage right now.

                  See, people assume that since Vasher makes a lot of interceptions, he's not a good cover corner. But that's not true. Tillman is a very nice player, and probably played a little better than Nathan last year, but overall, Vasher is the better corner. Not quite as physical as Peanut (though he's not afraid of contact), but his technique, and the way he positions himself on balls thrown in his direction, is just outstanding. He's faster, quicker, and obviously, he forces more turnovers. The only technical mistake I've ever seen Vasher make was when he whiffed attempting to jam Chad Johnson in 2005, though the Bears were already being dominated, thanks to Kyle Orton.

                  And when Tillman covers the number one receiver, it's usually by the opposing team's choice. He's responsible for the left side, I believe. Read up on the Steve Smith disaster in the '06 playoffs for proof.

                    Good signing. Pretty cheap too, considering what he could fetch on the open market. Big signing bonus though.

                        Vasher always covers the smaller/faster receivers, and Tillman covers the big/physical receivers. It used to be where Vasher always had the right side and Tillman the left side, but after that playoff debacle in 2006, the organization changed that.

                        Also, the reason why Vasher didn't have "probowl" numbers last season was because teams stopped trying to throw it to his side as much.

                        Tillman and Vasher are both very good corners, and I wouldn't say either one is better then the other. They are both very good for what their duties are.

                          Tillman is better than Vasher IMO. Glad to see us resigning one of our own on the same day they boot Tank's unappreciative ass to the door.

                            my only problem with Vasher is his run support isnt even near Tillmans level. Tillman strips like a lber while Vasher really doesnt seem all that good at it.
