    Leave him right where he is at, as a good - very good cover corner.

    Moving him to safety seems crazy with the way he's been tackling this season.

    He's having his best year as a pro, and there's no reason for people to be complaining about his coverage. Now his tackling is another matter entirely. That has just been flat out ugly.

    People are letting their bias over his offseason shenanigans cloud their judgment of his performance.

    The Texans are blessed to have Reeves, and Robinson as their corners.

    I don't like DRob any more than the rest of you, but until we find someone who can play better than him, he should start. He needs replaced though. Hopefully we get some good corners though free agency or the draft this coming offseason.

    Of course, the team will continue to pretend that he is good.

    I say send him the shoes!

    He was at least one step behind every receiver that I saw him covering on camera Monday night. And he missed several tackles, too.

    I can't pick any of that crap. The only response to Dunta Robinson at this point in the game is to finish the season out, offer him what you think he's worth in light of this seasons performance (Hint, it ain't 9 million dollars a year. That's for damn sure), and be prepared to see him walk out the door when some other GM overpays him.

    And then find a replacement at a rational, reasonable cost. That means pretty much draft a CB on the first day.

    I agree with Herv 100%. Play him because you pay him, make him a reasonable offer, and wave goodbye when he wants to try to find someone that will value him as much as he does himself.

    Offer him what he's actually worth, get the compensatory pick when another team signs him.

    Agree with joker on this one, the extra pick could work out well

    Its tricky to know how compensatory picks are calculated but from what I understand if you do not sign a comparable FA replacement you could get as high as a 3rd round pick. I think we would end up getting a 4th for Dunta... we usually do fairly well with our 4th round picks.

    I didn't see the option that truly represented my stance

    I'll vote "keep him in the starting lineup, let him play out his contract this year and let him walk in free agency and spend that money on someone better"

    Considering the last two losses have probably put the Texans in a position that they must win out to make the post season - and I just dont see that happening - D-Rob's inability to cover wont make a whole lot of difference in the grand scheme - Starting him is probably the best option , another team will pick him up in FA. Im not sure how the compensatory picks work but anything that will help that value is good for the team going forward.

    Interesting thought about not making the post season, I don't think we'll make it this year either. Is there still time to trade him, or is the trading deadline past? We probably still need him if we want to have a 9-7 record this year though.

    He's gonna command a high per year cap number. We already have one CB with a high number (Reeves) and Quinn can move into Dunta's spot. We can spend that 7-9 mil per year on 1 good guy or 2 pretty good guys. Draft a CB/S with one of our first 2 picks. Let D-Rob make his case for a contract with us for the rest of the year and wish him luck with his next team.

    D-Rob is still our 2nd best CB on our team right now, so benching him would probably be kind of useless. Let him play the rest of the year, then work on finding an upgrade in the off-season. Not really much else we can do. Calling him out won't change anything because its not his lack of effort that is holding him back, but simply that he just isn't fast enough anymore.
