Hopefully Robinson is healthy and steps up into a legit #2 opposite Lewis. If not, it may be time to find a legit #2 in a draft, provided SJB doesn't become that man next season
I agree 100%, Although I hold out hope for both Bailey and Robinson, both have been injury prone and neither have looked like a true #2 in recent seasons. White is still young but has passed neither. The last few years drafting corners has been horrible. It's time payton turns that over 100% to Rob. We've burned too many high picks on DB's only to scramble to find quality starters during free agency.

jjas is right that with the door wide open, it'd too bad White hasn't stepped up.
Big game for all 3 tomorrow
l was so happy we got Sweeting last year and knew he would make the club. but i am not going to kid myself here. i in no way see him becoming the CB you want starting outside. i could be wrong.

Sweeting is a solid back up that is very smart and will keep the play in front of him as not to give up the big plays. fourth or fifth guy all day long for years to come at best.

SJB oh god he needs work but if he every gets it all together he maybe the guy out there. i think a great nickle and dime guy shutting down the TE and tall slower wide outs is were he will settle in at for the next 2 years. then who knows. upside baby upside. how high does that ceiling go?

bring on the 2015 nfl draft - #1 priority will be either ILB or CB. as things look now i say CB.

They both might not even be on the opening day roster. I don't like the idea of both not playing at all in the preseason and expecting them to be ready when the games count. My guess is White will lineup opposite Lewis opening day. Vaccaro will drop down in sub packages with Bush and Sunseri seeing alot of playing time.

White scares me. I'd rather see Robinson opposite Lewis.

Okay by both you actually mean Bailey and PRob? So you think the top 2 guys chasing the starting CB position opposite Lewis might both get CUT? Now that'd be a story. And Joe Morgan might get moved to corner now that he's healthy. Pros-Good height and speed/Cons-Serious concerns about his run support.

It's P Rob opposite Lewis. I will be surprised if Robinson doesn't start.

Robinson is a notch below Keenan Lewis but he will be a perfect #2 if he can stay healthy. Love the way he played against the Colts.

I am starting to think Champ doesn't make the team. Same foot as last year? Ooof.

Champ's contract ($500k guaranteed over two years) may be what saves him from cuts but i don't know man, he's been just as injured as Butler....
