First, the New Orleans Saints secondary was carved up by the Green Bay Packers passing attack in Week 1. Then, midway through last week, the Saints lost veteran cornerback Tracy Porter to a calf injury in practice.

Nonetheless, defensive coordinator Gregg Williams showed the ultimate confidence in cornerbacks Jabari Greer and Patrick Robinson, leaving them on their own in "zero coverage" for much of the day last Sunday against the Chicago Bears. And they responded with a stingy performance in New Orleans' 30-13 victory.

"I think every week, he has confidence in those guys," Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins said. "They have a tough job, and they hold up. And they did a great job this past week, especially Jabari. He made a lot of plays and really shut down his side of the field."

Jabari played lights out, but Patrick still has a ways to go. Aaron Rogers ate him up all day because even though Patrick most of the time had his man "covered", the receiver was still making catches on him because he wasn't playing the ball, he was playing the coverage. Cutler is no Aaron Rodgers. Matt Schaub will also exploit Patrick if he thinks he can squeeze the ball by him. Schaub will be watching the Green Bay film alot more than he will the Chicago film. Patrick desperately needs an INT or a few batted-away passes to earn some respect on his side. Let's hope that happens this Sunday.

I think Robinson is coming along quite well. Its the first stretch of time where he starts and some mistakes are to be expected. As long as he learns from them it will be allright. Greer had an outstanding game against the Bears.

Green Bay vs Chicago Wide Receiver Corps is like comparing Greyhounds and Basset Hounds...

Houston is a good test and we'll see what shakes out...
