Vontae Davis: Darrelle who?

Say this much for Dolphins cornerback Vontae Davis. He's one confident young man. 

Maybe crazy, too. 

When discussing the top cornerbacks in the league, Davis didn't point to the Darrelle Revis-Antonio Cromartie duo with the Jets. Or the Nnamdi Asomugha-Asante Samuel-Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie troika in Philly. Nope. Davis thinks he and fellow Dolphins cornerback Sean Smith are tops. 

“I’m going to go out on a limb and say we’re the best tandem in the league,” Davis said, per the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. When asked if he could legitimately put the two Dolphins corners ahead of Revis and Cromartie, Davis said: "You name them all and I’m putting it out there." 

Dolphins coach Tony Sparano didn't mind the chest-puffing. 

“I like to hear it," he said. "I think they need to play with swagger. They need to play with confidence and those two guys have confidence. Time will tell at the end of this thing whether or not they are ?but I’d take them.”
