Now with five regular season games in the books, we wanted to take a comparative (though simplistic) view at how Nate Clements is playing this year compared to the man he replaced, Johnathan Joseph, who signed with the Houston Texans after the NFL lockout was lifted. We added Leon Hall, who struggled against the Jacksonville Jaguars with an opposing quarterback rating of 135.5, for the sake of good old fashioned argument. Joseph has had a good start with the Texans, doubling Cincinnati's total interception (1). How do the cornerbacks compare against each other?
|Nate Clements||Leon Hall||Johnathan Joseph|
|Opp. QB Rating||96.6||135.5||47.0|
|PFF Score (Coverage)||-2.7||0.9||1.3|
|PFF Score (Overall)||0.2||0.2||2.4|
