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

Personally, I feel like the Keenan Lewis injury ruined our start to the season. Browner was forced to be our #1 CB and he can only be effective within an incredibly specific defensive scheme. We were doomed from the get-go. Now we're getting Lewis and Byrd back... But is it too little too late?

You know you're doing bad when even PFF ranks you last. They usually rank players backwards. Then again, if you're rating players backwards maybe they still think he's good. This has been an exercise in futility.

Players who have been successful for other teams dont just arbitrarily start t suck like that. He was pretty consistant with Seattle and New England. I think it has to do more with coaching and scheme. Other good coaches were able to get some play out of him so its not like its a lost cause.

Oh speaking of Byrd, I didnt see much of him but when I did he was right near the ball or helping out one of the corners. If he statys healthy we might have a player after all.

Why people think automatically if you play corner you can go to safety? Well maybe they can but seriously doubt browner can. He don't have lateral movement or eye for the ball to be a ballhawk. He is straight up in your face, physical corner that rely on disrupting the timing and re routing wide recievers. He is more suited for zone with help over the top or in the middle to prevent slant. He is not a corner that you can leave on a island unless its goal to goal.

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

Browner's a solid tackler - great for run support.
The problem is that's not his primary responsibility.
He's long and linky - great when you are going for the ball,
but he's never in position to go for the ball.
He can't turn his hips well and doesn't have quick feet.
It's easy to get separation from him and then he's in catch-up mode.
NE and Seattle gave him a pass rush to work with. He didn't have to cover for more than 3 seconds.
Browner and most others would probably be fine IF they weren't hung out on the line.
A pass rush would make all of these guys look MUCH better.

He's just not being used right. He also doesn't have the supporting cast that Seattle or even New England had. It's not like these players just come here and start sucking. Scheme and coaching are as much to blame.

Wraps up when making tackles also. A huge plus in my book.
