I'm not sold just yet; the GB game he wasn't great, and we've given up a lot of big plays and had a ton of busted coverage

102 points given up in 3 games against the decent teams (one minus its star RB) is scary

It seemed like the kid played way too far off his guy in GB, trying to keep plays in front of him. But, the opposing QB was Aaron Rodgers. That guy is the best QB in the league right now.

Robinson seems to be getting more comfortable each game. I think he's been pretty solid so far this year.

I'll grant the GB game wasn't a great 1st start, but what do you fault Robinson for in the Carolina and Houston game?

Carolina was mostly the 54 yard pass to Steve Smith (Greer covering), and a 69 yard run by Williams. Robinson certainly wasn't exploited in that game.

Against Houston, every DB and LB on the roster was schooled by Andre Johnson.

What exactly are you not sold on with Robinson, because the 102 points are much more an indictment on the entire defense than it is on Patrick Robinson.

Great late 1st round steal (noted the Vikings were going to select him at top of 2nd round) just think when he meets his potential the Saints will be deep at corner if they don't let Porter walk when his contract is up

Anyone got a vid? Believe it or not, I had too much coffee waiting for the game and took a pee break. Came back and Drew was lining up...

Damn peanut-bladder!!!

Yes, it's an indictment against the entire D, of which he is a part.
He did not play well against GB or Hou.
Jax & Chi (minus Forte) have inept offenses, which leaves us to the Carolina game, in which he had zero tackles, and picked off a ball thrown right to him.

I'm not sold yet because two easy picks doesn't qualify a guy for the Pro Bowl, or even a starting spot in front of Porter. He might eventually be great, but I am not ready to canonize him just yet.

Oh, I missed the part where someone said he was a pro-bowler and a future hall of famer.

It's still gonna take him some time but it's a vast improvement for him from last year. What I noticed of him is that he does keep the receiver in front of him cause he has the speed to recover so he's still relying on his athleticism but once he start to control the receiver in coverage and be a little more instinctive we'll have the makings of a star CB but right now it's still hit or miss with him. As the season goes he should improve in a lot of areas

Averaging well over 30 points per game, every corner going up against Aaron Rodgers is a liability. If we're going to use Green Bay as a blue print, well then there's less than a handful of good corners in this league.

The kid is going to be a player for a long time in the black and gold. Give it some time.
