    as

    1-He was a good player as was his brother.

    I think if one adds a comma to this sentence after "player" then it will mean: "He was a good player and so was his brother."
    but as it is, technically doesn't it mean:

    a-"He was a good player in the same way as his brother (was a good player)"?

    Would any one use 1 instead of a?
    Is 1 correct as it is?

    As per my suggestion........

    He was a good player as his brother was.

    Or

    He was one of the good player as his brother was.

    Hope it may help you.
