for not signing that multi year deal this past offseason. This guy has been getting burned week after week. I seriously doubt he's back with the Texans next year simply because of his ego. If his ego was so big that he turned down more than 20 million guaranteed coming back from career threatening injuries than he certainly won't sign for significantly less this year after "proving himself". I strip you of your name D-rob and dub thee... D-Burnt.

Avery ran by him like he was standing still. Thank goodness Null was throwing the ball. Otherwise, it's a TD.

Thank you D-Rob for confirming what I always knew about you. You're a phony. You should be convicted for stealing money and for impersonating an NFL cornerback.

yeah averys a quick guy but dunta looked embarassingly slow on that play. avery was so much quicker he even (luckily) outran dunta's desperation grabs to pull him back that wouldve led to his weekly PI call

He will be gone and he'll have to settle for about 1/4 of what he stole from us this year. He's gonna feel like the biggest DA on the planet for not signing that contrct. My only hope is that he signs with a division rival so AJ can torch his ass and sing "Dunta how my ass taste?" twice a year.

Which would explain the 13 yard cushion he he was give the WR all game. I really can't stand seeing a WR make a catch without a LB/DB/S in the freaking TV screen.

By definition, he would have to have been in the vicinity of the WR to actually make physical contact.

The Rams dedicated their offense to Dunta Robinson. I only got to see NFL RedZone but it was more than appearant that the Rams saw where there offensive production would come from. And the thing about it is, you can't blame that on the fact that Reeves or anyone else we have is a shut down corner. They just know Dunta is going to give up more yards.

houstonspartan
12-21-2009, 10:40 AM
I still can't believe all that money he turned down. Wow. And the only reason it was offered was becuase he was seen as a leader on defense. Now, not only has Dunta had a subpar season and will likely never see that kind of contract offer again, but Bernard Pollard has stepped in taken over the defense.

And, Dunta completely lost the fan base.

What a mess.

Mr. White
12-21-2009, 10:47 AM
FWIW, the guys on the 1560 morning show were saying that David Gibbs changed the coverage technique and that Dunta isn't adapting well.

Kind of obvious I guess.

False Start
12-21-2009, 10:53 AM
I was never a real big Dunta fan, but I did like him because he was the best CB we had back in the day. Now, I really hope hes not wearing a Texans jersey come 2010. I hope he signs with the Rams, Lions, Browns, or Bucs next season, that would make me happy. :)

That must explain receivers running by him as if he's on a leisurely jog and him taking the Matt Stevens tackling approach this year. I have been very unimpressed with his play this year. I can see from a players point of view in a contract year trying to protect yourself from injury, but not at the expense of costing yourself money by not playing well at all. I don't think he has it anymore.

Maybe he's doing his best to make the Texans won't franchise him again. If so, it's working.

I remember a certain bunch in here constantly defending Dunta before the season started saying that his hold out wasn't going to effect anything and that he would be fine once the season started and he was simply doing what was best for him to all of us that were so pissed at the way he acted during training camp and pre season. Boy did that blow up in their faces and spew all over ours. Dunta has sucked this year and he won't be getting any great contract next year with anyone. Holding out did you a lot of good didn't it Dunta? After this year you'll have no contract and you won't get anywhere near what you could have gotten. :roast:

If so, he needs to look at who is consulting him.

"Dunta, here's what were gonna do. This year you are going to play very poorly, I mean poor like pissing off your coaches, holding penalties, allowing receivers to run by you, not tackling, you get the picture. This way the Texans won't franchise you again. Now you will not see a contract anywhere close to what you turned down, but at least you won't be making 10 mil a year."

The strange thing is that D-Burnt is still highly rated by the media and even by a lot of knowledgeable NFL guys. I think that with our lack of exposure at the national level, everyone just still assumes that D-Rob is as good as he used to be. I wouldn't be surprised is some stupid GM out there tries to make a big FA signing and throws more money at him than he deserves just to please fans.

If they watched a single game from this season they would be running away screaming. If a GM signs him for big money that's a GM that should be unimployed :)

How does everyone feel about our group of corners outside of D-Rob?

Quin, Reeves, McCain, Bennett, Molden.

It would be nice to pick up a vet or a high draft pick to play the nickel. Bennett is probably not going to break out again, and Molden is always hurt. While they will probably be on the roster next year, they aren't really a part of our future at CB IMO.

I know it's weird. It's like they just picked up from the point where he was injured and assumed his play was the same. He was no lockdown corner back then, but he was atleast solid and improving.

Anybody else think Solomon Wilcots or whatever, the analyst from NFL Network and the Texans game commentator yesterday, is really bad? That guy had me laughing the whole game. He called Arian Foster, Adrian Foster. When Pollard got the interception, even after the other commentator said "Pollard gets the interception", he called Pollard Barber. When Pollard and Jackson got into it he sounded confused on what to say. "Thats....not...the right behavior...we want to see in....the national football league.." Dude needs to stick to the teleprompter at NFL Network. Seems like the commentating gets worse every year.

Blake
12-21-2009, 12:15 PM
We should use the transition tag on him. This way he can go out and try to get a contract from another club.

If he gets a low offer we can match and keep him.

If he gets a high offer we can let him go.

Quin is a bellow average starter, or quality nickle guy.
Reeves has been up and down, but overall has been a quality player.
McCain has shown some flashes, but overall has been fair to poor.
Bennett won't be in the NFL next year.
Molden is held together by hope and duct tape.

Exactly, McCain is the only real prospect & he's no more than a nickel guy. We need a complete overhaul back there.

I remember alot of this same stuff being said about Charles Woodson when he was released by the raiders, now the guy is one of the premier CB's in the game & vying for defensive player of the year. It's funny what a little pass rush will do for ya.

It's also funny how learning how not to whiff on tackles will help a player become better and a defense get off the field faster.

And Dunta had the cajones to joke about Pollards speed last week!!!!

I used to love #23, now can't wait till the door hits him on the way out. I just can't stand that he's starting, I'd rather have Petey out there again!!!!!

About the only thing I see out of Dunta anymore is one good stick every other game if he doesn't whiff. Any other time he waits until someone else makes first contact and then he jumps in. And he's so far off the LOS he has to dodge traffic in the parking lot!!!!

yeah, b/c him whiffing on tackles is the sole reason we can't get off the field on 3rd down. Every single defensive player in the league does that, singling him out as the reason why our secondary is trash is a stretch.

Our secondary is actually quite solid. We have the 13th ranked passing defense despite a bellow average pass rush. If Wilson wasn't hurt 10 games every year they would be even better.

Wilson missed 4 games last year. Every week you've been the lead apologist for D-Rob's coverage, despite his poor play. And I don't care about what his DVOA and what his coverage statistics are. He's been playing badly. As Bill Belichick said recently, "Stats are for losers."

I never defended him and I didn't like what he did. I thought it would work out in our benefit because I honestly thought we would see the best he had to give. I figured it would be like it was with Haynesworth in Titsland. I didn't see him coming up with lackluster efforts each week. He could have played himself into a fat contract on par with what he expected. Too bad for him.

I agree that facts should be heeded when making an opinion. And yes, stats are "facts". But stats can be misleading, i.e. Shane Battier having one of the worst +/- statistics in basketball, regardless of his actual defensive prowess.

TimeKiller
12-22-2009, 10:02 AM
Does he even have more deflections than personal fouls at this point? It's close if not.

0 ints. 44 tackles and somehow I think I only remember one because Peyton "mentioned it". The guy hasn't been disgusting awful but he hasn't been anywhere near the status he gives himself.

I mean stats don't tell the whole story but they sure can throw a monkey wrench into some of these stories....

I find it funny that the only people who think he is just AWFUL are the Texans fans.

Everyone else seems to view him fairly.

The truth is that he is not as good as he used to be or even good but he is not terrible.

Many Texans fans do not like him personally for the "pay me rick" thing and how much money he is making compared to his production..which I am frustrated with as well.

Some of y'all do need to realize that he is not the worst CB in the league, just the most overpaid.

If you mean decent, do you mean as in a decent back up? DR has clearly lost a step, he has been extremely lucky this year that he hasn't been torched every game.

I don't know how is recieved by his team mates after the crap he pulled, but I know there are a lot of fans that will be thrilled the day he's cut, when ever that may be. as for the team I can't imagine they love him. Had he not been franchised we may have been able to work out deals with OD, Ryans, and maybe event extended Pitts or Walters (Pure speculation). As many have said thank goodness that Dunta was too proud to take that 23 million dollar deal if it really existed, because that cap hit would have sucked.

Maybe Rick can resign him for what he really is worth and then trade him for a 4th or 5th or maybe a used Plasma TV or something.

Is anybody really charting his plays to quantify how much he sucks now? Maybe that's a question for the video guys or the X's and O's guys.

It's an honest question.

I never really thought the guy was Deion Sanders or Rod Woodson before this offseason, but I also don't think he's Petey Reeves or Matt Stevens either.

I don't know how is recieved by his team mates after the crap he pulled, but I know there are a lot of fans that will be thrilled the day he's cut, when ever that may be. as for the team I can't imagine they love him.

His teammates could give a rat's ass about any of that. It's a job to them. They want to get paid too. I know we like to think that they play for the fans or for the love of the game, but the fact is these guys play for checks.

It's the fans that are up in arms. I honestly don't get all the outrage. Didn't show up for camp when he wasn't under contract...the shoes....how dare he.

I honestly haven't seen one good reason why the shoes are such a big deal.
