Come now... besides Revis, there's not many corners that can hang with Andre Johnson. Also remember, we were not putting pressure on Schaub.

The fact is Greer should not be having to make most of the tackles, he missed a far share...but he is a CB. We have our front 4, that should A.press or B. stop the run. We have LB who need to cover when needed or stop the run. The CB keep the WR in check. Greer missed some that should have been stopped way before they got to Greer.

But the saints now have tape to watch, the entire team needs to watch over and over.

I understand Greer was covering Andre Johnson.....a difficult task, but he got abused. Tackling......he was atrocious. Dude was horrible. No excuses for his play fellas. I watched and instantly thought of Jason David. Ughhhh!!!!!!
