METAIRIE, La. – Corey White’s return to the starting lineup was a good start for the New Orleans Saints secondary.

The third-year cornerback didn’t allow a single pass completion against the Minnesota Vikings last Sunday as the Saints held Minnesota to a net total of 188 passing yards in the Saints’ 20-9 victory. White had good coverage down the field the one time Minnesota took a shot deep against him.

He just needs to learn how to catch a ball.

Re: Good Start For Corey White

Like I said, we finished last season with the number 2 pass defense in the league, why change that if it worked so well, especially after its been apparent for many years that P-rob is nothing more than a liability in coverage.

Re: Good Start For Corey White

The one good thing that comes out of Robinson's struggles is that maybe now all the Corey White bashers will be forced to come to the realization that he is actually a pretty solid player. He's mentally and physically tough and brings a safety mentality to the corner spot.

I think the coaches had to find out what Robinson was capable of in this defense and that's not always easy to do in preseason. But I think they also knew that if Robinson couldn't cut it they had a pretty solid fallback option. We already knew what White was capable of because he did it last year.

I still like him playing inside the most but admire his toughness on the outside, one of my favorite players.

Re: Good Start For Corey White

Real head scratcher how we beat up Corey White, a fifth round pick, who plays hard and allows occasional completions (even knowing how much the league passes in contemporary times and pass defense is league rule restricted) and yet we keep trying to polish terds picked in the first and second rounds...

Who's we?

Several us defended him against ridiculous over the top criticism all off-season long.

Meh. Let's see what he's does against a real offense.

Re: Good Start For Corey White

Love his size and passion for the game; solid tackler and contributes to the run defense. I'll admit I've cussed him out before, but I have cussed everybody that has ever worn or has coached the Black & Gold at one time or another over the years. I'm equal opportunity.

And I think he still has upside. Delusional, maybe, but there's something about him I really like and that he hasn't reached his potential yet. He has that opportunity now.
