Default A better Cornerback

Im kind of tired seeing Robinson "making" tackles because he is 3 yards off the ball and then celebrating a pass incomplete thrown 7 yards out of bounds.

We really need secondary help either a Safety or a CB

I had said it during the bye week to pick up Ahmad Carroll and that T.O would do this but still no one listened, the game got so bad that CBS had switched to the Titans vs Redskins game, they said well now that we know Cowboys have this game with a 21 point lead lets switch to a more competitive game, that was the most embarassing thing ive seen

Drob held Glenn to about 40 yards. He had a good first half and they never really threw at him in the second, because TO was running around the secondary pushing people and we couldnt stop the run. The secodary was acctually decent if they could play the ball. McLeon was in good position but never turned around and Lewis Sanders got screwed by the refs.

D-Rob covered well all game, ya'll don't know what you are talking about. Like poster above said, get a good cb to go on other side and Dunta is pro bowler. Dunta is skillful, but whole secondary is terrible.

he an tackle because unlike the Cowboys DBs, they knew to come up on slant patterns while he stood there. He should have raced his hands in the air again like he did in the first game

Umm...what? Anyway, we had to commit people foward to stop the run, they didnt. That makes a huge differance, esspecially when you cover deep threats like TO and Glenn. I think he did a good job of covering Glenn and forced aout 4 throw aways and a couple over incompletions. We didnt have enough pressure on Bledsoe for him to shine, but I thought the DB's did pretty well, just gotta make better plays on the ball (two of TO's TD's could have been picked if the our DB's could have found the ball)

I want better play from him. our whole Secondary is a BIG minus on our team (behind our running game). Im fine with getting another corner or a Safety, but Dunta has been dissapointing this year.

Default Re: A better Cornerback

Drob really puts forth the extra effort in tackles, acceleration, and coverage, so I have 0 criticism for him. The team needs more secondary help, and always has needed it. It has been one of the biggest flaws in their scheme. I think more than just coaching is needed to get out of the hole. They need to draft/free agent a safety or cornerback - a really good one, and go from there.

It has been pointed out before that the secondary is handicapped by the front seven. To a certain extent, I agree. IMO, when given time, Bledsoe was more likely to connect with a receiver than when he was pressured.

At the same time, there is only so much the guys in the trenches can do. Somebody has to be covered, and covered well.

Are you talking about the TD catch? I thought the same thing too when it happened, but when they showed the replay TO didn't do anything.

My coach told me racing your hands could cause blindness!

It looked like the Cowboys started picking on Dunta for a while. He is looking like a very average corner.

a better defensive coordinator and better pass rush is all we need. We need glen dorsey DT from lsu in the 2007 draft, and a new punter also!
