The New Orleans Saints showed up to their NFC wild-card playoff game last weekend against the Philadelphia Eagles with a huge target on the side of their bus entering Lincoln Financial Field, practically begging Eagles fans to fire objects at them from the street.

During the course of the game, the target shifted to second-year cornerback Corey White.

Once Keenan Lewis left the Saints' 26-24 win last Saturday with a concussion, White saw his assignment shift to covering Eagles speedster DeSean Jackson.

Re: New Orleans Saints cornerback Corey White says he needs to make plays as teams target him

"We all understand they're going to come my way just knowing who I am and knowing who we have on the other side (Lewis)," White said Wednesday. "We know they're going to come my way. It's nothing personal, and I'm not saying I'm a bad player or anything like that. They just know it's my first year starting in the league, and we're coming after this guy.

"It's common sense."

New Orleans Saints cornerback Corey White says he needs to make plays as teams target him

The New Orleans Saints showed up to their NFC wild-card playoff game last weekend against the Philadelphia Eagles with a huge target on the side of their bus entering Lincoln Financial Field, practically begging Eagles fans to fire objects at them from the street.

During the course of the game, the target shifted to second-year cornerback Corey White.

Once Keenan Lewis left the Saints' 26-24 win last Saturday with a concussion, White saw his assignment shift to covering Eagles speedster DeSean Jackson.

Nick Foles immediately tested White on the play after Lewis' injury and connected with Jackson for a 40-yard reception. White also drew a 40-yard pass interference penalty on the Eagles' final possession as Philadelphia took a 24-23 lead two plays later.

"We all understand they're going to come my way just knowing who I am and knowing who we have on the other side (Lewis)," White said Wednesday. "We know they're going to come my way. It's nothing personal, and I'm not saying I'm a bad player or anything like that. They just know it's my first year starting in the league, and we're coming after this guy.

"It's common sense."

Re: New Orleans Saints cornerback Corey White says he needs to make plays as teams target him

White has 10 career starts. He's basically a rookie+
There are very few 23 year old CB's that step right in and make an impact. I'd say he 's pretty close to the 3-4 corners taken in the first round this year. Next year we'll see a very competitive camp

Re: New Orleans Saints cornerback Corey White says he needs to make plays as teams target him

Considering White has had to step into the starting role he has done well. There are plays that he needs to make though. I watched the Hawks game today and noticed a play where White had the INT and dropped it. Normally you say no big deal, get the next one, however White seems to be in position to make the play very often but can't cash it in (49ers game anyone?). He is only going to get better, and I think he should be the starter from here on out.

Re: New Orleans Saints cornerback Corey White says he needs to make plays as teams target him

White is a decent CB. Very good tackler. Always close to the play. Never gets smoked. But, I honestly believe he and Jenkins are playing at their second best positions. White thrived at safety in college and Jenkins was a top CB before his pro days. Both of them need to show up at their current positions for the Saints to have a fighting chance on Saturday.

There is alot of young talent in that defense. Hopefully we can keep the unit together long term.

Sometimes a little FS help over the top is a good thing.
