Saints' search for second starting cornerback failed from the start

"The New Orleans Saints were on easy street at cornerback, for once, during the 2013 season. They weren't going to find much better than Keenan Lewis and Jabari Greer.

The tandem stood as one of the primary factors in such an over-achieving turnaround on defense last season. New Orleans was 8-2 when Lewis and Greer started together.

Greer then sustained what turned out to be a career-ending compound knee injury in Week 11 against the 49ers. The Saints are 6-10, including the postseason, since Greer left the starting lineup.

The second cornerback spot has since become a New Orleans-sized pothole..."

Greer may have made a couple bad plays last season but the guy was very underrated as a CB.

Now we are reeling because P-rob is inconsistent, Corey white is just plain awful and SJB looks like he's never seen a route run at him before.

Corey white has allowed a perfect passer rating when thrown at him for 2 straight games, vs Dallas and Detroit

With hindsight he may have proved a better option than Byrd,having said that you could have Earl Thomas,Richard Sherman and Revis in the backfield and with no pass rush you going to get passed on
Not writing him off as he needs time to develop a understanding with KV.

I think its more than just having talent. You can have all the talent in the world but if you don't put them in spots to make plays...

I am ready to part ways with Rob Ryan.

Get some up and coming D coach in here that is flying under the radar.

I was really excited when we were talking to Brandon Browner. He would have been a great fit for us. When we didn't land him we were in trouble.

Greer was the best we' had since McKenzie was here. I really miss him.
