OH SHIT ANOTHER GREAT NFC EAST TRASH TALK FEST. SHADY AND OSI. DESEAN AND LARON. BRANDON BOYKIN AND WALTER THURMOND?
Responding to comments made by former Seahawk and new Giant Walter Thurmond, who claimed that he is “the best slot corner in the league,” Brandon Boykin wondered… who the hell is that?
Jesus Christ. I love Boykin, and Respect the Spunk™, but is being the best slot corner in the league really something care that much about? It’s like saying you’re the best penalty killer in hockey, or the best pinch hitter in baseball. Like, yeah, it’s meaningful, but you’re not on the field all the time and generally matched up against the other team’s third best receiver. It’s an important role, no doubt, but jeez, let’s not shout it from the rooftops.
