Quick conversation reenactment after the SJB pass break up:

Wife: That's your homeboy huh #33
Me: Yeah SJB
Wife: Well he sho... need to be his ass in better position! Didn't he give up a TD last week. ( I did explain to her that he was in perfect position last week and given the time to develop he would come up with that play)
Me: He's a rookie. He's learning the position.
Wife: What the Hell was he doing his whole college career
Me: Actually he was converted from a wide receiver so he has only been a corner 2 seasons.
Wife: Maybe they should have drafted him for that....... When you put that jersey on you supposed to be able to come out here and play.

Is there any such thing as needs time to develop, or Raw when it comes to talent starved Saints fans. What's the rush? We didn't rush Terron Armstead.... and now look at him. I haven't seen SJB beaten completely on any plays. And yesterday he actually got in front of a route, and probably makes a play if the ball is better thrown. There shouldn't be any rush. You have the veteran presence and the depth the bring SJB up properly. Use it!!!!

Re: Jean Baptiste

He's still a 2 year project. I like his upside and I'm sure Ryan has a plan for him in certain packages but he doesn't look like he's ready to move ahead of White or Robinson yet.

Re: Jean Baptiste

Biggest issue he has is playing "off coverage" he gets beat all day by the short throws.

Re: Jean Baptiste

Baptiste will be fine. Every rookie corner strugles, that's a fact. P. Peterson was below average (in coverage) in his rookie year. I'm worried about White. If we don't use him right we will have Malcolm Jenkins 2.0. Great play, awful play...

Re: Jean Baptiste

I guess I'm the only one who actually likes what I've seen from SJB. He looks like he plays the run very well, the times he has been beaten he actually has had good coverage. He just needs to learn to get his head around.

I don't know why people are so down on him. If you want someone to be down on look at Wade and Sweeting those two are garbage.

As far as SJB goes, skies the limit for that kid. IMHO.

I'm with you. Watching him last night, I thought he had good coverage overall and made some good decisions out there. Plus he was good in run support. It will be a typical rookie CB year for him, with high and low points, but I think he'll really start to blossom in year two.

Re: Jean Baptiste

The positive I've seen from SJB is that he's in the receiver's hip pocket. He's just not locating the ball.....yet.

Like the run toughness though
