I'm also ok with him in dime coverage when we have a three TD lead with 2 minutes remaining.
I don't get why people are afraid for SJB to see the field. We can talk about who is better than who all we want, but only one thing matters that we see every Sunday; Robinson/White are awful and the verdict is still out on Dixon.

Robinson and White have played so poorly at times it may have been better if they never took the field.
"Corey White struggled, gave up eight of nine targets for 148, two touchdowns, and a perfect QB rating. Golden Tate accounted for five of those catches."

I'm with ya, man. I want SJB to see the field. But how else can he get more playing time other than doing well in practice? Where or how else can he prove he belongs on the nickle & dime packages?

Or...hahaha...switch him back to WR.

I would love to see SJB in a SS role, a big, athletic, fast guy, kind of like Chanceller is in Seattle, an enforcer.With Byrd at FS. Just my thought.

I'm not buying that at all.
No, you don't pick him with a second round pick if he's not ready to play the position...

I don't care who starts there. I just want someone who will step up. All of them thus far have been awful.

Re: Saints' search for second starting cornerback failed from the start

Corey White is not a #2 CB. He's decent in nickel, where he should be.

When he moves to the #2 through injuries, he gets beat more than he wins.

What I'm hearing you guys say is you're ready to throw a RAW rookie in as our starting #2 CB.

Sorry, that's crazy.

Like I said before, if Greer doesn't break his leg off we're set and have a dominant secondary. What we have today was never the plan.

Re: Saints' search for second starting cornerback failed from the start

We need to seriously address CB, LB and O line in the draft/free agency

Maybe even another pass rusher

I'm starting to agree with Jean Pierre, it's the coaches.

+1. I would upgrade from the word 'maybe' to 'likely'. Our pass rush has been close to non existent this season. Not sure what is up with Cam this year. As JP eluded to earlier, we should have never drafted a guy who was so called RAW in the 2nd round if he does not get substantial playing time.
