After a stellar season in 2004 that saw him narrowly miss out on Defensive Rookie of the Year honors, Houston Texans cornerback Dunta Robinson was expected to continue his stellar play into 2005. However, thanks to a decrease in his own play and other extenuating circumstances, the 5-10, 174-pounder saw his numbers take a major hit as an NFL sophomore.
The article goes on to say that Robinson should develop into one of the league's foremost defensive backs. His lack of a stellar performance last year was due to a lack of assistance from the other defensive players and that he was one of our only competent defenders last year.

...few on the Texans should be happier about the team using its No. 1 overall pick in April's draft on Mario Williams, a dominant defensive end from North Carolina St. The 6-7, 295-pounder will finally put some pressure on opposing quarterbacks, which will lead to more takeaway opportunities for Robinson. Why? Because when signal-callers are pressured, they tend to panic and heave the ball up for grabs, and that can obviously lead to golden opportunities for defensive backs.

In 2006, things should begin to look much brighter for a Houston Texans franchise

And by the way, look for the ex-South Carolina Gamecocks star to put up numbers similar to his first season, when he was a dominant force in the secondary.
And while I'm on this website,

ranks Kubiak as the #1 new coach based on the likelihood of success and prior credentials.

It is really nice to read good news about the Texans after last year. It just makes you smile.

I'm a huge D-Rob fan ! He's got the mentality of a LB but in a DBs body. And a very smallish DB at that. I got to meet him at one of the Texans practice
sessions last year, and I actually came away relieved after seeing that he's
got some pretty dang good guns on him.
Ya see him on TV, his limbs appear to be so unimpressive, but he's a wiry, tough little dude. Still I keep hoping that these diet gurus the Texans now have on staff will put some weight on him, but I got doubts about it ever happening ?

Umm, you for some reason do not refer to the fact that the story cleary refers to a "decrease in his own play." Robinson did indeed experience a sophomore slump and it is incorrect to blame his decline on his teammates alone. In fact, each and every player on the team can attempt to point to somebody else and claim the other guy or guys were the reason why they as individuals did not succeed. And when the finger pointing comes out, you know you are in real trouble. Fact is, Robinson just wasn't up to snuff and, eliminating all the finger pointing which every single player can use as an excuse, he was just not up to snuff. It wasn't Capers's fault, nor Pendry's, nor Palmer's, nor Carr's or anybody else's. It was his fault.
