Dixon could take over as #2 CB over Robinson...?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I don't know about starting, but how's this for an NFL Resume'? As a rookie, beat out future Hall of Famer, Champ Bailey for the last roster spot....

I like Brian Dixon. I actually like him a lot. But come on.
While I agree with what you said, I am concerned about PROB. He looked awful in the pre-season, he was picked on by no name Baltimore QBs all day. I don't think he is going to do well covering White...

Size, speed, and most important desire has me thinking he'll pan out alright here. I will admit I put him on my cut list earlier in the preseason...but honestly, who really had this guy beating out freakin' Champ Bailey?

Thank goodness I ain't running this team. Jeebus.

PROB was playing off the line in our last preseason game to get reps in a very vanilla defensive look. PROB also has the luxury of not playing in a Spags defense and he has the luxury of having Byrd as the FS instead of Malcolm Jenkins.

PROB will be fine. I'm honestly feeling a break-out year for this dude.

Hope your right. I did notice a lot of off coverage in the pre-season; not a fan of that myself.

If I remember correctly, Robinson has always excelled in press man...

Which is the scheme RR is likely to play the most during the season. He will mix it up at times with some off man coverage, and also some zone... but I expect more press than anything else.
