Default The Texans’ Unsung Defender - Glover Quin

Quote:
Glover Quin is an essential piece to the Texans defense and as you can see he is asked to do multiple jobs on the football field. Quin is actually the only Texans defender that is a hybrid player. He plays safety, corner back and linebacker at any given time of the game. He is moved around throughout the game and proved to be a big reason for the Texans ability to improve defensively in 2011.


With his contract expiring after the 2012 season, Quin is increasing his value as a NFL player. With other big names coming up for paydays for the Texans, Quin should not be over-looked by the Texans front office for an extension. We know money will be tight but the Texans need to do everything in their power to bring back Quin for the coming years. Quin has steadily improved since his rookie season of 2009 and this season should not be any different.

Good article with lots of cool still shots of Phillips' defense.

I'm cool with Glover Quin... THE ONLY thing that bugs me about him is that his facemask looks too small or too short for his head... If that's the worst criticism that I have, then that's pretty good, no??

Not disagreeing with Quin's performance but I disagree with his playing multiple roles upping his contract value in the open market. Most DC's don't multi-task players like Quin effectively.

Love Quin but don't see offering him much to remain. I expect a draft pick to replace him.

Default Re: The Texans’ Unsung Defender - Glover Quin

I like Glover Quin. He's been a solid, but not spectacular, defender. But, he's not a playmaker. All of his 3 career ints came off Rusty Smith. Who's Rusty Smith? Exactly.

Quin's not the type of player who generates a lot of free agent interest. That could change with the Texans gaining more exposure and Glover making more plays. But, being able to lineup in different spots on the field doesn't automatically make a player special. Making plays makes a player special.

Hasnt the safety spot traditionally been a revolving door on most of wade's defenses? I'd like to see more players on the backend who make "game changing plays".

Default Re: The Texans’ Unsung Defender - Glover Quin

Maybe I am in the minority but for my money he's a glue player and does the unheralded jobs really well allowing the more attention grabbing positions players to shine. I would have thought there might be a little more support given this teams history with awful safeties. Finally I think this position is a keystone for smiths defense given the stress he puts on the secondary. Just my two cents. I think he merits a od type deal say 5 years 16-18 mil.

Don't underestimate his flexibility. I think that flexibility puts a couple of extra options in Wade's trick bag.

I certainly wouldn't put Quin on level of Daniels, and it's not what type of contract he "merits". It's what he can get on the market. I don't see a big market for a safety that doesn't come up with turnovers. When you look at the guys the Texans must re-sign (Brown, Barwin, Schaub, and eventually Cushing), guys like Quin are going to have to settle for the scraps.

No, not Daniels like at all. I'd say he's more Joel Dressen if we want to connect that dot.
I'm for Quin though. I was also for Dequan Menzie from 'Bama in the draft because he's a Quin clone. Alright I only have one more comparison: Shane Battier.

Looking at int's alone is a poor way to judge a DB. Quin nails his responsibilities, the only receiver that beat him deep that I can remember is AJ Green. How many DBs are keeping up with him? Yeah, he single handedly destroyed Rusty Who Smith's career but I think last year he was adjusting to playing with 2 superstars in the backfield and a front 7 that was going off. He's not the best DB on the field anymore. No, he doesn't have game breaking ability but what he does have is worth keeping around. Smarts, flexibility, tackling, experience and success with the system, good work ethic, his teammates trust.

Default Re: The Texans’ Unsung Defender - Glover Quin

In a non-salary cap world Quin is no brainer to keep. he does his job at basic level and flexible in the skills that he displays, but is not a playmaker. In terms of safeties, right now that position is probably the most poorly played in the NFL. there are only a few game changers, and really most teams don't have two good, solid ones. Notice that 3rd Cbs pretty much are drafted in the same areas as safeties and have as much demand on the free agent market.

Quin is a solid to good player and all it takes is for someone to go give him decent say biscuit Breisel money as a free agent for him not to be a Texan.

Quin was second in tackles on the Texan's.

A safety being second usually means your defense sucks. On the second ranked defense it means Quin is making plays.

I love Quin.

I think he's very underestimated, & his flexibility will make it difficult for offenses to read. Is he a LB, Safety, a nickel corner?

He might not be an INT generator.

I also think he'll eventually be the leader of the defense.

Jimmy Graham smoked Quin on a up route when Glover had him in man coverage. But, Graham had his way with a lot of DBs last year.
