Our CB's

Found on twitter https://twitter.com/PFF

@PFF 2 corners this year allowed more than 1000 receiving yards NO 's Patrick Robinson (1071) and Deangelo Hall (1045). Only 4 in past 5 years

Also..

@PFF Patrick Robinson also led all CB's this year in giving up 9 TDs through the air. Not ideal

It should be noted that Prob was in on 619 snaps and allowed a catch rate of 56%. PRob did have 18 passes defense and 3 INTs this last year, but he was really torched according to these stats.

In 2011, quarterbacks throwing at PRob had a rating of 59.3

So my question is, how comfortable are you with PRob as our starting CB? Was last year's yardage given up more scheme and breakdowns? Is it just that QB's throw at him alot thus yardage is going to accumulate regardless? (Hall was in on 628 snaps) Thoughts?

Any 2012 grades should be burned. Not 1 single player fit Spags' scheme.

Re: Our CB's

last year i was shocked by the white pick in the draft. now i really like the kid and see a bright future for him. sure coverage skills need development but that was to be expected coming from a small school.

What i like is he is not afraid to tackle. he sticks the ball carrier. thats what we need more of. enough of these fineness players.

Saints need to get bigger and nastier.

Re: Our CB's

Actually getting a pass rush will help our CB's. Robinson has some talent but he had no clue what he was doing and was guessing at his role.

Re: Our CB's

oh yeah a pass rush helps but you need to set a tone in the secondary with your hits. the saints hit nothing but sour notes in past few years. no one is scared of them

Re: Our CB's

I was never high on Patrick coming out of FL State and his game is NOT physical enough for my taste. If Rob Ryan ends up in NO as our DC, Pat MUST adjust his playing style, getting his body square to defend the bigger WR's or see himself introduced to the bench. His performance in 2012 puts me in the mindset of the old Fred Thomas days.

Hey! Fred Thomas was really good until he signed that contract extension. My Gawd...he was awful after that!

Re: Our CB's

I still have faith in Robinson's talent. I'd hate for him to go elsewhere and reach his full potential. Remember... this young man got a lot of Deion Sanders comparison out of college. Hopefully our next DC can get the most out of him.

Still young, still cheap, still talented. It's not time to give up just yet.

And he was progressing quite nicely until we switched to zone. He looked on pace to surpass Greer.

Hah! Yeah, I liked Fred, he was scrappy.

P-Rob is often painful to watch, but he has talent. Sometimes it seems like his head can't keep pace with his game, but I don't suppose the Spags affair helped that, either.
