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

Browner can only be used as a jam corner with safety help. He has never been a good coverage guy but one who jams receivers on the line to throw off timing. I think a healthy Byrd will help with Browner. Could be a great setup with opposing QB's looking to pick on Browner and have a ball hawking Byrd come in for a pick. Providing Byrd stays healthy.

Should be transitioned to a SS role. Vaccaro has proven to be no more than role player and lacks the ability to play every down as a safety. I think Browner would be a natural fit at safety. What I don't get is why they moved Swann to safety for portions of the game, clearly they know Vaccaro can't get the job done but taking Swann out of a position that he was performing well doesn't make sense. The answer seems obvious in this situation.

In other PFF news, Delvin Breaux is ranked #19 in QBR (thats good).

Also he's ranked 3rd in the coverage snaps per reception (the snaps a CB is primary man in coverage relative to how many receptions allowed), only behind Patrick Peterson and Desmond Trufant. (thats great)

I like the physical aspect of what he does, just needs support and a DL that can get inside from time to time. Without that teams will continue to expose him. He's being tasked to do something he is not good at so yeah, results will suck.

This ^^^^^^^^^^^. BB is way more effective when he has help over the top. The dude can play when he is near the line of scrimmage. Go back and look at the replay in Dallas .. had some serious tackles near the line.

Message to the Big Lebowski ... gotta play him to his strengths. His game isn't like P Peterson or D Revis.

Swann and Breaux are already miles ahead of him, I don't understand why he's even still allowed on the field for our defense.
