However, I wonder how much poor safety play played into some of his poor metrics.
it factors in, no doubt about it. P-Rob deserves some blame but this is still a team game the last I checked.
most of the time, our defense was dreadful to watch last year. But they did come up with more turnovers than I think most realize. I mean, frick, P-Rob had a 99 yard interception return for TD in the Eagles game. He also picked off Aaron Rodgers who usually takes care of the ball pretty well.
but... I have a question. Why do you think the Saints were pressing hard to sign Asomugha? I mean sure, he knows Ryan's system but I found it pretty interesting beyond that. We bag on Robinson all the time but I think Jabari Greer hasn't exactly been tearing it up on the other side either. Don't get me wrong... he's the best corner we have to my knowledge at this point but it just seems like he gets a pass on here a lot.
maybe they were pressing hard for Asomugha because our corners have a tendency to get hurt a lot, Greer being one of them. I don't know, just a thought.
We've read a lot of nice things on Lewis and I'm looking forward to seeing him out there in our secondary.
