New Orleans Saints CB Brandon Browner a big disappointment so far

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; "Square-Peg/Round-Hole" Syndrome. Can't hammer a steel nail with a wet noodle. Draft & grow your own dang corners that learn from NFL-caliber secondary coaches. See also "The Jason David Disaster circa 2007"...

Re: New Orleans Saints CB Brandon Browner a big disappointment so far

we knew what we were getting when we signed him. So far he has lived up to his billing

I blame Rob and injuries for the miss use of Browner. So lets see what happens when Lewis is at full speed and can play a full game. Byrd over the top has to help.

Still have a CB/S or two high on my wish list in next years draft just like I do every year since Jenkins and Harper were cut lose. I just do not the marriage of Kenny and Byrd back there. Jenkins would have been a better match with Byrd

I would have liked to have seen Sunseri with Byrd. Vaccarro don't look good to me at all. I would love to see a good SS back their on patrol.

Message to the Big Lebowski ... gotta play him to his strengths. His game isn't like P Peterson or D Revis.
Its also why I don't think he'd make a good Safety at all.

His skill is man coverage, playing the WR, not any type of zone where he's required to see the whole field.

I don't think his skillset transfers to safety at all.

Re: New Orleans Saints CB Brandon Browner a big disappointment so far

Why does everyone keep saying when Byrd gets back this, and when Byrd gets back that. What has the dude done in two years to instill this level of confidence? I am not being a *****, I am being serious. I just don't see anything he has done to make us feel so good.

Obviously its his all-pro performances year in and year out before he came here that instills that level of confidence.

Sad part about that is its the only place teams would throw at. For every INT it seemed like he gave up 3 TDS. I cant wait to get Lewis back healthy this year though. That will help our D tremendously.
