Actually, there was only one running play in which he was not in good position; I'll get to it pretty soon here.
I've started taking PFF less seriously. They don't seem to understand coverage and assignment concepts. They tend to assign responsibility for a catch to whoever was closest at the time the catch was made, regardless of who was supposed to be there.

For example: Cover 3 and the safety in the middle zone jumps a hitch and go letting the slot receiver get behind him down the middle of the field. The RCB comes from 20+ yards away and catches the receiver from behind to prevent a TD. They marked it as a bad play against the corner when it was actually a great play on his part.

My mistake, Tom.
I found that clip and then I saw a link posted at HT.com

Spec, after watching some more game film, I saw why he was called for a few ticky_tac foul of the 5_yd variety and a few (PIs); hand fighting like JJo.

The refs can pick and choose when to call 'em fouls.

Alright, believe it or not, I had watched all the 7 games he played this year and a couple in 2011.
It went pretty quickly, really.

On Game Rewind, you can turn on the playlist in a column next to the video.

Routt played LCB with the Chiefs as opposed to Rcb with the Raiders.

I watched all the plays going to his side and all the pass or run plays longer than 15 yards to either side.

You can get to each play with just a click of the mouse.

In 2010, he was called for 12 penalties.
They showed a graphic display in a 2011 game.
There was no breakdown as to how many was of the 5_yd variety.

In 7 games of this season, he was called for 2 of those; one of them probably deserving (a little too much hand fight just beyond the 5-yd limit.

He was called for one PI that goes for 12 yards.
That one, I must say I disagree.
He was ahead of the receiver, I think he should have the right to encroach to steer the receiver further to the sideline; it's not like he blatantly cut in front of the receiver.

I really like what I saw; he's a starter in this league, there's no doubt.

Agree. They have too few people to watch too many games at the detail level.

I take their numbers and combine them with several other sites and my own observation to come to a better understanding of each situation.

I'm thinking that, his new pass rush-effective scheme here will lend itself to a conducive environment where Routt could show a very dramatic turn around back to his old Raiders bump and run self.
The Chiefs pass rush is lacking, that's for sure.

On top of that they played quite a bit of zone where often a receiver can find a soft spot.

They also had him play the shuffle technique once in a while; and like we've discussed it, it doesn't help on those 10-15 yards routes near the sideline.

bottom line: not being on same page with coaching staff is recipe for failure in the league. I doubt he will have similar problems with Vance & Texan coaching staff, hence the signing suggests both sides bought in to each other

It's a lot easier to get on board with a scheme when the team is 11-1 as opposed to 2-10. Besides, I think the Texan's locker room is more than capable of dealing with any BS that affects morale.

Ok, let's say a guy gets beat, but he recovered somewhat to come back and makes a swipe at the receiver.

He gets just a piece of the guy, slowing him down just enough for another defender to make the stop; he's still charged with a miss.

Another guy couldn't recover and so the receiver runs free for a TD;
This CB is not charged for a miss.

Similarly, a CB coming up for run support; he was aware of the situation to get off his man successfully, but not cleanly enough to have the proper angle or enough time to make a good tackle. He's charged with a miss.

Another CB got taken out of the play by his man; he's not charged with a miss.
In reality, this guy is a thousand time worse than the other.

That said, you can google "cornerback tackling profootballfocus".
Choose the article that has the title begin with "Madden Maniac".

It gives you an idea when you compare those pure numbers (especially for a 3-yr span between 09-11) with those of JJo and Asomugha.

Get ready for a treat.

Routt must be a happy camper right now.

Money in the pocket going home.
Now he can play for fun and a SB ring.

You can't beat that.
Hopefully, he takes advantage of this special situation and works his butt off.
