Maybe this thread should turn from how bad Faggins is to how good Joey did?

Default Re: Bennett could replace Faggins as Texans cornerback

With respect towards Fred Bennet, how long does it usually take a CB to develop into a quality starter?

I know it depends on the person, etc etc...but for example on the DL it is said it typically takes them 3 years to really develop. What can we expect from a CB?

I think we're all ready for Bennet to be then man, but what/when is realistic?

I guess if you have elite talent you can start from day one - Dunta, Newman. Guys like the Eagles and Broncos CBs took a couple years to develop. But they had better starters to begin with (not counting Dunta).

Default Re: Bennett could replace Faggins as Texans cornerback

Someone in another thread stated that Faggins didn't play as much the 2nd half. Now, I watched the game live and then rewatched it on DVR- trying to look at a lot of players and embarrassingly didn't even notice this was the case, if true.

Does anybody know how much time Faggins played the 2nd half? On one hand, the Falcons only scored 6 points....but on the other (while the game was close) they always had the lead and needed to run (the clock out).

I think both really stepped up their play today.

Faggins was on top of recievers like a blanket most of the day and Bennett looked good.

I say this competition for the 2nd CB and respect is good for the team.

Default Re: Bennett could replace Faggins as Texans cornerback

Honestly now, after what we've seen so far, how many of you still feel Faggins is a better option than Bennett?

and how many of you feel Bennett isn't contributing much because of his 4th rd status???


yeah, I thought so...

Bennett is doing much better than expected. We are truly lucky to have so many young guys step up when veterans go down.

I wish they would have started Bennett much earlier in the season because honestly, could he have been much worse than Faggins was?

Yeah, I guess they're about the same.

I'm not saying Fred is better than Dunta. All I'm saying is that he is holding it down nicely. And if you've been watching the same games i have, then you'll see Bennett has been doing his damndest to lay the wood as D Rob would have. DRob has been my favorite defender since we drafted him, but i was just as hopeful about Bennett when we drafted him.

It's not the college they are from, its the swagger they bring.

I really hate the argument of someone being drafted in a higher round must be better than one drafted in a lower round. There are examples in every draft at every position which disprove this notion.

Agreed. Not to defend Petey but he is the veteran guy. Bennet came in with some bagage. If the other thirty one clubs thought that Bennit would be doing this well with this minamal amount of time....he wouldn't of slid into the forth round. You can dance all you want...the fact is Bennit hasn't faced the fire yet. And you won't know exactly what you have untill then. The SITYS only work if it's true. So far the jury is still out. His confidence is up and he's playing very well. Got three games left including, the young phenom tommorow, Peyton Manning and a very hot David Garrard....we'll see. Manning may be benched if things work out right.
