Breaux

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; So I really believed the thoughts on Breaux being a top corner but I was trying to research the week 15 lions game(my goal was seeing why the run game was not working, guard play) and it was not Browner ...

Breaux

So I really believed the thoughts on Breaux being a top corner but I was trying to research the week 15 lions game(my goal was seeing why the run game was not working, guard play) and it was not Browner giving up those Tate yards, it was Breaux. And this is concerning because maybe he's not a starting caliber corner yet. Lewis is still our number 1 if healthy. We may be seeing Bell at number 2 corner if Breaux does not learn to lock down number two receivers like Tate in his second year.

Re: Breaux

P.J. Williams might beat both of them out.

Re: Breaux

Sorry Will but you're overreacting. Breaux was supposed to be our nickel CB but due to the Lewis injury and Browner's ineptitude he was thrust into the #1 role and performed very admirably. You have to keep in mind that it was his rookie season. He went from arena football and CFL to shutting down Julio Jones!

From what I heard Williams is not cut out for a outside corner role.

Re: Breaux

I looked more into this reading some articles. But I had really thought that was Browner getting burned all game by Tate.

You heard wrong:

Bottom Line
Cover cornerback with the talent to play on an island, and the swagger to regroup and forget when beaten. Williams can cover outside or from the slot, and has potential to come in and start right away for an aggressive man-cover defense. Williams had some issues recovering when beaten deep and may end up making a move to safety on the next level. He has the talent to be a capable NFL starter at either position.

Re: Breaux

I don't think anyone ever expected him to be a number 1 guy. He will get his chance. It will be interesting to see how he does after a year under his belt.

Re: Breaux

When you say it was Breaux giving up those Tate yards, I've just had a look at the stat overview.

Tate finished with 6 catches for 45 yards....the 2 TD's he got is not good but 45 yards is nothing

He had his share of up and downs, he struggled some weeks and then had a great game the next.

Put any corner out there with last season's Jekyll and Hyde Defensive Line and see how they fair, the line looked like world beaters one week and then high schoolers the next.

Just keep in mind it was his rookie season and for a guy who just 5 years ago was feared to have been paralysed, he showed more promise than any defensive rookie we have signed in the Sean Payton era.

Any guy that can shut down Julio Jones is a player to get excited about.

Re: Breaux

Every corner will have issues now and again and Tate is a very good WR imo. How many times did Stevie Johnson give Revis issues at Buffalo and he is a similar level to Tate imo
