Yeah, well I watched every Saints game and I heard our DB\'s names said quite a bit and it usually not a good thing. If you are a good db your name will not be said much.

not necessarily true... i heard all sorts of things about gamble, strait, hall, and even poole and these are the \"good\" prospects. i didn\'t hear anything about how good robinson is until he went to the combines. don\'t get me wrong here, i think that he\'d be better than all of our corners (except maybe Thomas), but to go and draft a guy because he became superman for a weekend, rather than did great for a season, to me is asinine.

There is no way to tell if any of these guys will be good NFL players or not. So, I don\'t really care how much you heard those guys name. To me rix, your comment was asinine.

i wasn\'t directing that towards you sir spanks a lot... but i do get rather tired of teams, not just the Saints, selecting players based on a workout. tony mandarich, steve emtman, and others come to mind. these guys were \"can\'t miss\" players, according to scouts at the combines, and well, we all know what happened to them.

I dont think any of know what happened to them. That is the problem. I couldnt tell you where they are today and why they never panned out. There is no such thing as a cant miss talent. Too many things are possible and no one is safe. Robinson was a good corner all year. He is not a \"workout warrior.\" He has performed on the field. Shawtae Spencer from Pitt is a workout warrior. There is a difference.

Look, you name every bust there was since the draft started. Look at the guys whose name was called alot. Wuerful, Troy Davis, Lawrence Phillips, etc etc...Their name was called very often and what did they do in the NFL? Like spanky said no one knows how these guys are going to pan out in the NFL until they play.

I did not mean to attack you rxis, but it\'s aggravating to hear people talk about certain players being \"workout warriors.\" The draft has never been an exact science and it will never be one. That is one of the many things that draw me to the draft. Many things go into who makes it and who does not. Only time will tell if Robinson is legit, so until then I guess you can speculate all you want.

all i\'m saying is that the red carpet should not be rolled out on bourbon st. for this kid that had one good weekend. for all we know, he could be the best corner to ever play, but you can\'t make that assessment over a combine outcome.

Numbskull...what i am trying to say is that he was a good corner ALL SEASON AT SC.
He wasnt unheard of until the combine.
He was projected to be a first round/second round corner during the season when he was playing...when he was making plays and playing football...that was when people became enamored with him. He made a name for himself on the field and he enhanced that during the workout.

Red Carpet is overrated.
