We have a great strating tandem at corner when they are healthy and we have good young prospects to back them up. Greer had a bit of a down season last year but I'm not giving up on him. One thing is for sure it's going to be a top notch group for a long time.

So did Porter and Robinson. Greer was still our best CB in 2010.

I gotta stop you right there. The reason it didn't work when we bought Jason David in is because we brought JD in for all the wrong reasons. They actually gave him number one corner money. Although Pittsburgh is primarily zone d. Polamalu is often times a gambler and will break zone d formations to try and make plays leaving Pitt CBS on islands. Taylor can hold his own, plus he is unafraid to come and assist in run support. A shade taller than Greer or Porter who had been getting picked on last season. I say if you have the money then he is worth a look if he is willing.

Nah I'm not buying that. Robinson was awful, and Porter was bad, but Greer got toasted.

Hate to throw numbers at this conversation, but according to "Advanced NFL Stats", Porter had a higher Win Probability Added (meaning he gave the Saints a higher chance of winning when he was on the field), a higher Success Rate (number of plays considered "successful"), and a lower Expected Points (meaning when he was on the field, fewer points would be given up).

Hate to counter with more numbers, but...

If our top 3 CB's were Awful, Bad and Toasted, then how did we finish with the 4th ranked pass defense in the entire league, (with an in the box SS and below average sack totals)?

We also finished 1st in the NFL for least TD passes allowed.

Fair enough, good point Danno. I tend to be harsher on the teams I love... perhaps it's that final game that sticks in my mind... although I stand by my statement that I think Greer struggled in 2010. I remember him getting beaten quite a few times more than in 2009.

Lol....Thats funny....I dont care who you are....Thats funny. Seriously though, why would anybody think Greer needed to be traded? DId they even watch last season? Greer did a great job on the corner. Just because he messed up a couple of times doesn't mean we should cut the guy. Geez.....With a fan like you who needs enemies?
