The slot is where most teams did their passing damage to our defense. In theory, signing PRob should fix this; plus, I like the idea of reclaiming a lost pick...

One foreseeable problem per the article, Patrick Robinson revealed Dennis Allen has asked him to do more man-to-man than zone as he'd done in Philadelphia...

Once again, asking a guy to change what he does well raises the eyebrow at the least; so we'll have to temper expectations while Robinson hopefully adjusts...

I was thinking the same thing jp. When he left New Orleans he finally got some good coaching and he dedicated himself to get better and he did. Now he's back and we want to change his responsibilities........this reminds me of early last year running KV as a two high safety. It failed because it wasn't his strength. I hope we don't repeat that same mistake again.:rolleyes:

On the flip side, PRob is a slot corner. Something we lacked big time last season. D Allen is a smart man and no fool. Better believe Dennis & A Glenn will play the man to his strengths to make him successful like he was in Philly last year.

I'm not going to read too much into that Advocate article. Especially in mid June when we hadn't even hit camp yet.

"It's very aggressive, more on the man-to-man side," Robinson said. "I would say this past year, it was more of a zone defense when I was in Philly. Here, it's more aggressive, more blitzing, more of a man-to-man type defense. I'm still trying to get used to it." - Patrick Robinson, as quoted in the article...

^^^^^ PRob played man in Philly & also a lot of zone ... with a lot of man concepts. Same could be said here in New Orleans. He has ability to "man up" if required. According to PFF (if you believe in stats), his best year was under Williams scheme (in a lot ways closer to Dennis Allen scheme). When Spaggs came, it went down hill and then on top of that he was injured & confidence was lost.

Saints coaches liked what they saw in PRob & there was plenty of tape on him in man last season. I don't think he' be here if he wasn't capable. Where's Rez??

Again .. it's June. RELAX :smokin:.

Not sure why Rez hasn't been around here. I see him pretty much every day on FB.

Just clarifying that this wasn't some idle spin by a sports writer, but an actual statement made by the first party, Patrick Robinson on what's to be different...
