I hope he does well with the Chargers, and I'm glad he went to the AFC if that actually happens.

I don't see him as a bust being a low 1st rounder who the Saints reached for.

Re: PRob to Chargers...

Just another blunder by Loomis and Co. at drafting a CB... It's becoming a tradition: P Rob, SJB, Corey White, Johnny Patrick, Usama Young, Malcolm Jenkins, etc. At least Tracy Porter gave us some good memories when he wasn't injured.

Actually Fin, that's what a bust is...

But you're right to wish him well in recovering his football career...

I was interested to see him under Dennis Allen's tutelage...

I guess you could call picking him - especially where he was picked in the draft - a bust by the FO, but I wouldn't call him a bust as a player.

It's all a matter of an opinion, but I think the b-word is used far too often in the media to excite potential readers to click on articles. I try to reserve that designation to players like Jamarcus Russell, who really never live up to the lofty expectations people and organizations have for them. I don't think the players themselves should be at fault if a team's scouting department and FO misevaluate their value and potential, but when the players themselves squander their opportunities with either bad ethics when it comes to practicing and improving on their craft or by getting in trouble with the law - then I see them as busts regardless of when they were picked in the draft.

To me it at least seems like Robinson didn't have an attitude problem, but just a hard time staying healthy and finding his place on the roster/scheme, so again that's the main reason I don't see him as a bust as a player.

Maybe a change of scenery will do him good. Great attitude, hard worker.

Good luck man. You had a string of bad luck here in New Orleans but I hope it all works out for you.
