There's getting burned, and then there is just flat out making an awful play.
This is the latter. Bad either way.

PS- didn't look like much of a hold either

I thought Keenan Lewis was stunning.

Did hate to see our guys trying to kill each other.

But Lewis has been a good pickup. I Joel that he & the whole D keep up the good work.

Re: Is this what having a shutdown corner feels like?

Lewis has definitely been a great addition to the secondary, but I do agree that McKenzie was pretty impressive when he was at the top of his game.

Greer still has some great instincts on the field and he probably helps the younger guys along with their game, and I think he's been a lot better in coverage this year as opposed to last year, so the decline is negligible IMO.

I was kind of chuckling after that collision. Did anyone else see Vacarro kind of roll over when his head was between Lewis' legs and get a face full of crotch? His eye widend up and he roll back over quick!

LMAO for that Kenny!

I think we actually had two shutdown corners in 2009 Greer/Porter. But on this team Keenan is definitely the best Corner bar none. I like Jabari but he's definitely getting up in age. Maybe we should move him to Free Safety next season,and move Malcolm back to Corner.

Why do that when we have Corey White and Patrick Robinson ready to fight for that #2 spot next year?

Jenkins is a much better fit at FS then Greer would be...

Re: Is this what having a shutdown corner feels like?

Well, I do know that Corey White as a whole has played well, like many of the younger players (i.e. Vacarro) they've definitely had their share of mistakes, but they're also younger, faster, stronger and are making key plays to offset those mistakes rather than the slow, medicre death we were seeing with over-compensated veterans like Smith and Harper...
