New Orleans Saints cornerback Patrick Robinson striving for 'fresh start' after rough 2012 season
 
1 Attachment(s)
New Orleans Saints cornerback Patrick Robinson can't find a shredder large enough to ruin every piece of film from his Week 16 outing against the Dallas Cowboys last season, in particular his matchup with receiver Dez Bryant.

He also knows there's no delete button or reset option. It's part of his résumé now.

Robinson ducked and shook his head with a laugh when his performance against Bryant sprung up in conversation last week. He knows that's what many people remember from him most last season. Bryant piled up nine catches for 224 yards, including two 58-yard touchdown receptions, with Robinson on the coverage.

A breakdown of Robinson's Week 16 performance went as follows via Pro Football Focus: "Given the unfortunate task of shadowing Bryant the entire game, Robinson allowed 9-of-12 passes thrown his way to be completed -- all but one to Dez -- including each of his long (58-yard) touchdowns. And though he did have a big pass breakup in overtime, the cornerback allowed a near-perfect QB rating of 156.3."

Also according to Pro Football Focus, Robinson surrendered the most yards (1,071) of any cornerback in the league last season.

The criticism and unflattering statistics vs. Dallas aren't foreign to the mild-mannered Robinson. That's why his attitude entering the 2013 season should be encouraging for Saints Coach Sean Payton and defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, who saw Robinson's performance firsthand while with the Cowboys last season.

"I take it (2013) as a fresh start; I'm going to try my hardest to get better every day," Robinson said. "I have to come in fresh. ...

"As far as last year, I'm going to try to forget about it. I'm going to try to make a way better (impression)."

When half of the completions resulted in P-Rob looking around wondering who was supposed to cover who, its hard to put all the blame on P-Rob.

I saw more palms up confusion by our DB's in 2012 than the previous 6 years combined.

I think he comes on strong in 2013.

Dude has a steep hill to climb. Good thing for him it won't take much show improvement from last season. I've defended him in the past. He seemed to be so close to making critical interceptions for us last year.

If only he'd been on the right side of the field! Seriously though, it's the coach's job to put that player where he's gonna be successful. That didn't happen all that much last year. I'm looking forward to a real upside from him this year.

I'm fine with P-Rob. He was - at worst - a solid starting corner in 2011. I'm not going to throw him under the bus with all that went on last year. Put him up in press coverage and let him do his thing, he'll be fine.
