Default Reeves right pick for Rick

Evidently, Rick Smith is quite content with the deal they got from the Girls with Reeve being the top interception (4) and deflection (19) producer. My guess, part of the optimism for improving Reeves' "burn" rate, is that the new D philosophy will concentrate on agressive pass rush, which in turn will lend itself to a heavier "press" than tampa 2 scheme (as was at one time suggested by threetoedpete). At the same time, the Girls are hoping for a decent "return" on their loss through compensatory pick.

Reeves said the mentality in Houston was not only different, but noticeable from the first day he arrived.

"Yeah, we've got a good young team. We're hungry," Reeves said of the Texans, who went 8-8 last year. "The thing I saw when I got down there in Houston, rather than Dallas, we were a young, hungry team. It was real obvious that everyone there was working to get better. It was obvious."

Great attitude ! I like it.

I think with Wilson acting as Reeves' rear view mirror the whole season along with an improved pass rush we'll see the people who bash Reeves on here eat their words. Like it or not, he was our best CB last season and he's only gonna get better.

From that article:

Quote:
By the way, Finnegan, who went to the Pro Bowl for the Titans, didn't allow a touchdown even though 91 passes were thrown at him.
I thought I remember Andre catching a TD over Finnegan. Am I wrong?

I was pretty OK with Reeves last year. ANYTHING is better than Petey as a starting CB!! As has been stated on here numerous times, a better passrush will make our secondary look great.

Great clips from McClain's article. Fans often don't see the production that doesn't show up in the boxscore:

Quote:
Anyway, here's an example of what I'm talking about, thanks to STATS, Inc.: How many touchdowns do you think Reeves allowed?

Three, tying him for 64th most in the league. Surprised? I am. He had 109 passes thrown at him, and he gave up only three touchdowns - the same as Dunta Robinson, who was thrown at 49 times.

Here are some defensive backs who had fewer passes thrown at them and surrendered more than twice as many touchdowns as Reeves: Ellis Hobbs (nine), Rod Hood (nine), Ronde Barber (eight), Dwight Lowery (eight), Nate Clements (seven), Deltha O'Neal (seven), Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (seven) and Marcus Trufant (seven).

Here are some defensive backs who allowed twice (six) as many touchdown passes as Reeves: Quentin Jammer, Lito Sheppard, Anthony Henry and Eric Green.

Here's the stat I find the most shocking: Reeves was thrown at 109 times, and he allowed 53 completions. That's a percentage of 48.6.

Check out some cornerbacks who had a lot of passes thrown at them and allowed a lot higher percentage of completions: Antonio Cromartie (69.0), Dre' Bly (67.0), Sheppard (65.9), Barber (64.9), Aaron Ross (64.6), Henry (64.0), Charles Tillman (63.9), Jammer (62.7), Trufant (60.2), Terance Newman (59.7), Cortland Finnegan (57.1), Clements (56.0), Rodgers-Cromartie (55.4) and Asante Samuel (52.8).
Quote:
Dunta Robinson, who played at about 90 percent after coming off the physically unable to perform list, was 33 of 49 for 67.3 percent and three touchdowns. Fred Bennett was 39 of 66 for 59.1 percent and three touchdowns.

It suck's we might have to give up a draft pick, just because the cowboy's didn't want to re-sign him, how is that our fault? If that is the case I hope it's a 7th since that's the position he was drafted at.

Do we give up a draft pick or are the Cowboys compensated a draft pick by the league?
