He didn't look awful all preseason. He looked good against the Rams and Colts. Bad against the Ravens but it's not like we were scheming or really even trying in that game. 4th game of preseason is always like that.

Well... 1st test comes against the dirty birds and is in 6 days and counting. Training camp and the pre season are OVER.

No excuses for PRob. That #2 CB spot isn't cemented in stone.

The only real knock on him, as it was with his twin brother Brandon (a 6th round draft pick back in May with the Jets; who was just released this past Saturday by New York and was signed to the Buccaneers’ Practice Squad), will be that he didn’t face top-caliber (as in the SEC or the PAC-12) Division 1 talent.
I seem to remember the same thing was said about Terron Armstead.

So with Champ Bailey still on the roster, Robinson wasn't really trying??

He wasn't pressing or anything, not that he wasn't trying. Ryan wasn't scheming...

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

Speaking of Dixon, I've never bought that whole "faced inferior talent" as being a knock on an NFL prospect. Life can get and is pretty complex between high school and graduating college for a kid with physical talent.

Dixon being from SW Missouri State means a hot cup of jack squat. He's on an NFL roster. May get cut tomorrow, but damn it he made it on a playoff-caliber NFL team.
