The 19th overall pick selected in the first round of the 2006 NFL Draft has arguably developed into the best corner back in the game today.

He led the NFL with 11 INTs.  4 of them came from Peyton Manning.

He set the Chargers team record for most INTs in a season.

In week 8 against Houston he had 2 INTs and 2 TDs & a recovered fumble in the end zone and a 70 yard INT return.

In week 9 against the Vikings he returned a missed field goal 109 yards setting a record for the longest play in NFL history.

In week 10 against Indy he had 3 INTs and earned Defensive Player of the Week in the NFL.  He became the first player to ever intercept Peyton Manning 3 times in one game.  The one handed INT on the sideline was the best I have ever seen

In weeks 13, 14 and 15 he had 2 INTs against the Chiefs, 1 against the Titans and 1 against Detroit.

In the Divisional Playoffs he returned an INT 89 yards for a touchdown.  (Terrible holding call Ref)

In the AFC Championship game, he had an INT against Tom Brady and the Perfect Patriots.

He was selected to this year’s Pro Bowl team and the First Team Associate Press All Pro Team.

He is signed through the 2010 season.
