http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/sports/solomon/6783848.html I know I have been guilty of being pissed at Dunta this year and in all honesty I couldn't tell you how much of it is because of how disappointed/angry I was with him because of the way he handled getting franchise tagged and his whole "Pay Me Rick" episode. If you ask me I would say he has lost a step and hasn't shown up in the running game like he has in the past. I can remember his bad plays and have trouble remembering his good ones. But Solomon makes some good points in this article. For instance: "The Texans put Robinson on a receiver, typically the opponents' No. 1 wideout, one-on-one about 90 percent of the time. Most of those receivers have done little damage against Robinson. Ochocinco slipped past him for a 50-yard catch, which Texans coaches say is the lone deep ball completed against Robinson this season." This is the first year that I can remember where we move our number 1 CB onto the other teams top WR. Got to give Dunta some credit here. To build on this point: "He hasn't had a monster season he doesn't have an interception but he has been very good. Robinson's play has set the tone for a Texans secondary that has allowed only one wide receiver (Chad Ochocinco) to top the 100-yard mark this season." I guess this is somewhat comparable to a defense not allowing a 100 yard rusher but honestly the top CB on the team has more impact on a receiver wheras in the running game its really a team effort. Not saying this is entirely on the CB because its also a team effort but in this case 1 player probably has the most impact. Still cannot believe that he dropped that INT vs. Tenn. and then you have to figure out a way to calculate the penalties he has contributed. Lastly the team defensive stats have been the best we have ever seen. 12th total defense, giving up about 210 ypg passing, middle of the league scoring average. I expected defensive improvement this year but I think I can honestly say that the performance to date is the very high end of what I had hoped for. I've always thought that CB was one of the toughest positions for fans to judge because we just don't see what they do on every play unless the ball goes their way. I just can't get the picture of Britt running away from him and scoring a TD or the way that Donnie Avery blew past him on that one play last Sunday out of my mind(the angle on that TO run for a TD vs. Buffalo was pretty awful as well). I also think that Solomon has a bit of a habit of going overboard with what I would call "Anti herd thought." Pretty much he looks at the prevailing attitudes among some fans and assumes (not always incorrectly) that they must be complete buffoons, I'm going to write an article to let them know whats really what. Bottom line, he is probably playing better than I am personally giving him credit for but I still don't think he is worth the kind of cash he wants. I'd like to believe he is so we can resign him and use most of our resources this offseason discovering a legit rushing attack instead of replacing lost pieces in the secondary but I'm just not feeling it, what do you guys think?
