True, he's a man-press CB. Playing him in the slot would be another square peg / round hole decision identical to that which ruined his stay in Philly.

I think Greer likely moves to the slot.

Yep and P-Rob moves to that box underneath the overpass...

I wouldn't give up on Robinson yet. He was developing nicely as a man CB before we switched to our zone confusion scheme in 2012.

re: Nnamdi Asomugha (All in one)

Some of the comments I read are absolutely ridiculous, you want to throw away young players who didn't perform like an all pro to sign a bunch of aging football players such as Nnamdi, give me a break.
Spagnulo was the DC last year and was fired the instant SP was reinstated, I wonder why. Five the young guys a chance with someone who can teach.

And they do need quality depth at the CB position regardless of what happens with Asomugha, and I do think Robinson can provide that at the least.

Asomugha, Lewis, Greer, Robinson, and White would provide a nice deep CB corps going into the season, but there'd undoubtedly be a lot of money tied down to that position if that were the case.

re: Nnamdi Asomugha (All in one)

You both are right of course. All of our guys spent most of the last two seasons wandering around the field looking for any kind of direction whatsoever. However, if all these guys come in, Robinson's probably not going to get much time on the field and I'm still not taking back anything I've said about Patrick.

Agreed

I can still remember the reaction of everyone at the draft and analysts etc when brees announced the pick, it was kinda like okay.......who?

Re: Nnamdi visiting Saints on Sunday

Sorry guys. Can't get excited about this unless he comes for peanuts. I've watched this guy play for two years in the Philly area and I'm not impressed. Essentially he doesn't: a) tackle and b) cover very well on man coverage.

Even on a "bad D" his numbers should reflect pass defense at a minimum and they don't.

I, for one, believe he's more hype than substance and at 31, we can get a younger (and cheaper) option than Jason David 2.0 or P.Rob Sr....
