He got positive grades from PFF and after watching the game 3 times I didn't notice anything bad from him.

You have to understand White is the whipping boy for a lot of people because he has been burned a few times in the past. If a guy from the other team makes a catch and Corey White is anywhere on the TV screen there are people who automatically assume it's his fault. The same thing happened to Keenan Lewis in Pittsburgh in his first couple of years.

Same with Harper, Jenkins, Shanle, PRob, Ingram, Grubbs, Hawthorne, etc.

People parrot the same old crap without knowing jack squat about who really screwed up on any given play.

I almost agree with you. if he does get the gig be ready for a few wild times. I think all he needs are the reps to solve tracking the ball problems. he is worth training up and taking a risk on for the outside say maybe next year. plug stop measure this year on the outside is cool. he needs the reps. but i think we have a lot growth yet to see out of white
