2 things I am tired of seeing in the secondary.

2 things I am tired of seeing in the secondary.

Roman Harper and Malcolm Jenkins.


Those 2 safeties the last 2-3 years have reminded me of the scrubs Gary Gibbs bought in at the position. Who were they? Kaesvaharn and ????

What they had in common was they always were out of place, couldnt cover, couldnt play the ball properly, and just didnt cut the mustard.

Its no wonder why Roman Harpers best asset on defense was doing something normally made for a LB, that was blitzing under Gregg Williams scheme.

I think we have seen what the position is suppose to be played like when Bush and Quddus have been in there, they seem a little more smarter to play those positions than the guys like Jenkins and Harpers whos been in the NFL for a few years now.

So full of fail its just not worth responding to anymore.

Good grief we have the most uninformed fans in the entire league.

Re: 2 things I am tired of seeing in the secondary.

not really, everytime a big play happens like the 2 Dez Bryant TD passes, who was the yahoos at Safety?

Harper and Jenkins.

Jenkins is out for the year, he wasn't in the cowboys game

Dez bryants two TD passes - first one Patrick Robinson didn't even locate or fight for the ball in the air, he was in man coverage

Second TD pass - Patrick Robinson fell down on a slant route, and as much as i like Quddus, his attempt at tackling Bryant was piss poor

Both TD passes were on Patrick Robinson, Harper was not on that side of the field and the long pass that got Dallas back into the game with 3 mins left was against Patrick robinson

"Ryan......INTERCEPTED....going back the other way with Jabari Greer......TOUCHDOWN....KILLER TOUCHDOWN for the saints!!!"

Re: 2 things I am tired of seeing in the secondary.

I think the fault falls more on Patrick Robinson then the safties. It is his job to stay on the WR, but he has been getting beat all over the field nearly every week. I am not a huge fan of Harper and Jenkins either, but Robinson has been the achilles heel for us on D.

I thought OP was going to say Patrick Robinson and Patrick Robinson, to which I was going to agree.

Re: 2 things I am tired of seeing in the secondary.

Bryant is hard to cover period. Robinson was put on him and got beat, he is not there yet!! I hope White heals, he matches up better with the Bryants in the league. Robinson in my opionon is looking a little lost, I still have hope for him but he is on my watch list, hopefully next season is when the light comes on. I think Patrick has a high cealing but needs to get his feet wet more.

Re: 2 things I am tired of seeing in the secondary.

And on the first TD Quddus took a bad angle on Bryant and failed to catch him in the foot race. We are so not better with Bush and Quddus at safety. That is just ridiculous. I do think we need to move Jenkins to SS though, put Harper in a big nickel role or a hybrid LBer position and upgrade the FS position.

Patrick Robinson was who I thought this thread would be about too. He's been terrible this year.
