Default Updated Corner Statistics

It's been a few weeks since we last took a look at the Texans corner statistics, so I figured it was a good time for an update.

They are sorted by the rankings column, which is a formula taking into account plays in coverage, yards, and receptions. It's not perfect, but it will do as a preliminary sort, and does correspond for the most part with who I think are the best cover corners.

CS1 is yards surrendered per play in coverage. (Lower is better)
CS2 is plays in coverage per reception allowed. (Higher is better)

These rankings are only coverage stats, and don't include the player's value in run support, or as a playmaker (INTs, Fumbles, Defensive TDs). They are not adjusted for strength of competition.

Green = above average for the 75 corners tracked
Red = bellow average

A handful of players have been discarded from this table for limited sample size, though their play would put them in the top 32. Darius Butler (NE) is the highest rated player I've tracked, with a ranking score of 106.58, but that is largely influenced by his limited number of snaps, and the WRs he's covered as the nickle/dime corner.

*Snaps, plays in coverage, yards, Thrown at and Receptions courtesy of Profootballfocus.com


Glover Quin is 41st.

With Reeves at 16 and Robinson at 24 the Texans have a top 10 cover corner tandem, even if they're not exactly exciting playmakers.

Robinson would actually be ranked a lot higher if the receptions he allowed were not 13 yards down the field. Help over the top, and a better passrush would help that.

I think he was being sarcastic. Reeves has easily been our best cornerback this year and last year. Excellent signing by our FO.

I can't believe Aso has only been thrown at 8 times all year

How many games has he played in?

And I disagree about Reeves being our best CB.
But everybody has the rights to think what they want!

Reeves was clearly the best CB on the team last year. This year, I'm not sure, but I may give the nod to Glover Quin.

I understand that the stats are from the same site but we need a link each time to avoid Texanstalk getting in trouble. If someone from profootballfocus.com saw this post they aren't going to research if they have ever been given credit before. And clearly all the color and content even if dumped into your spreadsheet comes from them. Just help us out in not getting the site in trouble, ok?

By the way, I'm not trying to insult Dunta. I have more confidence in Dunta. I just wanted to pay some respect to Quin's play the first half of this season. He was playing well when Dunta was shaking off the rust, Reeves was hobbled, and Bennett was hurting my eyes!

I think I understand!

Reeves improved in the last half of the year in 08.
I hope he continues to improve.

IMO, Dunta is still the best CB we have; you have to project a player through at least some 8-10 games to value him, I would think.

Quin had his bad moments early on, but I'm liking him more and more.
Looks like he has a bright future. But then again, it's too early to say!

I love Dunta! I think he's a good CB and a better football player. He, understandably, had a poor season last year and I think was misused during Richard Smith's tenure. He is great in zone coverage, when he has some freedom to look into the backfield. If we had a true shutdown corner on the other side, he'd make as many plays as Ronde Barber has over the course of his career. I'm expecting to see Dunta do some blitzing as the season wears on. He sure was a good CB blitzer back in 2004-05. I'm surprised we haven't seen it this year.

As long as our LBs are still getting torched, I don't think we'll see a corner blitz, LOL!
