Nnamdi Asomugha was a guest of Anthony & Glen on WIP yesterday and talked about the difference in the comfort level that he and the whole defense feels now as opposed to last year.

"Yeah. Absolutely. After playing in a system for a year and having to learn it in games as oppose to practice. You learn a lot faster. Pretty much the first half of the season where we were still in the learning mode of it because that was our eight weeks to get down. I think that compared to where we are right now it's much more comfortable for myself, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, and everyone else pretty much back there. Even Juan Castillo is much more comfortable."

They also asked about the comparison he made on the Rich Eisen podcast between 8-8 in Oakland and 8-8 in Philadelphia.

"The 8-8 in Oakland? We were perennially the last team in the AFC West. We would win maybe two games a year or four games a year. When we got to 8-8 and it was like wow! There is so much improvement. You're not excited you didn't make the playoffs, but you're excited that we were moving in the right direction. I love how different that is over here because 8-8 is not acceptable. It doesn't matter where you have come from. 8-8 should always be we are playing below where we should be playing. Out here that is the mentality. 8-8 shouldn't be anywhere near what we are thinking. That was great."
