Our CB's

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Robinson's tackling, or should I say wiffing will have him out of a starting role pretty quick. CB's in the 46 have to be great tacklers above all else....

Where did you hear we'd be running the 46?

Re: Our CB's

Our Patricks suck. I believe that they have to go now.......cut bait and run like hell. I like White well enough I guess.......he's young and needs coaching. Greer is still looking good to me. He had that groin pull last year and looked good before and then slowly got better as the season went on. We don't have the ammunition at CB to be successful in my opinion.

Both of the Patrick's are here next year. I personally feel they are better suited for a man defense, which is what Ryan employs more of. So here's to hoping they each play better in 2013!

None of our CB's had true over the top help until late in the season( enter Quaddus and Bush).

I'm just curious as to why you think Johnny Patrick suits man coverage better than zone?

JP doesn't have the speed to match with most of the wideouts and he has some rather tight hips which makes him very susceptible to quick changes of direction by the receivers.

He does have good skills at the LOS when it comes to getting his hands on the receivers and bumping them, and he seems to have above average skills when it comes to positioning himself on the field.

Those characteristics to me are much better suited for a zone CB than man coverage, but I'd like to hear your perspective on the matter.

Re: Our CB's

Only time will...tell P-Rob clearly was progessing before we switched the sccheme to zone I think we'll see the that progression we were looking for this year...if we need to be talking about anybody leaving it should be Jabari considering his age & play at CB

Haha, let me rephrase, I think our CB's, overall, are better suited for man coverage, not all of them. You're correct about Johnny Patrick though. He is good at the line, getting physical, but he doesn't have the hips to really mirror receivers, nor the recovery speed if he gets burned. That being said, I believe we'll be employing a man coverage next season and we're stuck with JP, so here's to hoping he can be coached up and contribute for our D
