    We wanted you. We just wanted you to a) quit sucking and b) quit bitching about not being paid enough to suck. Deal with it bro, however you like but at least own that much of it. You sucked given every chance to prove otherwise, to prove you were actually worth that big ass deal you got from the chump franchise in Georgia. Move to Atlanta, believe me we're ALL fine with it but own your little-girl-esque bitching and own your extremely middle of the pack CB skills/performance.

    Getting hurt had nothing to do with his drop in performance .... Nope , not one bit.

    Is the 'Old Dunta' able to catch a VY floater over the middle of the field, or does he ham-hand it and drop a game changing turnover?

    I wonder how different it would of been, if say, he caught it, ran it back for a TD.

    Or caught it, we did a clock-controlling drive to finish the game.

    Won that game.

    And made the playoffs.

    Here's hoping the "Young" Kareem Jackson makes us forget about the "Old" Dunta Robinson.

    And this just in - Falcons Fan called and said he prefers to not have the word "Old" associated in any way shape or form with his starting cornerback.

    If he had done anything like that, he would have been a hero, but there wasn't a single play he made all season that won the Texans a game. He was a decent cornerback, but there was nothing outstanding about him this year.

    It is quotes like this that make you realize that fans don't know jack squat half the time about the locker room. Yeah alot of us thought Dunta was a selfish ahole that disrupted the team with his shoe message, but many also thought that the team was behind him despite it. Overall the guy basically knew he didn't want to be here. You have a few of those guys a year and that brings a team down. You just never know what is going through guys heads.

    That's correct, the drop off was the result of injury, lack of Training camp and speed he never possesed in the first place.

    See-ya' DRob - May the Falcons have fun trying to mask your poor coverage skills.

    To hell with you Dunta. I wont miss seeing you whiffing on tackles and interceptions. I'm upset that I actually cheered for you in the first game of the season when you decided to show up.

    The play that ticked me off real good was not just the dropped INT. That can happen at times, and is most likely the reason he plays defense. The one that does it for me was when he knocked the crap out of Addai and immediately turned around to let everyone know that he made the hit. Only problem was he didn't knock the ball loose and he forgot he was playing Peyton Manning who then sees Dunta celebrating so he walks up to the huddle hikes the ball and chuck a 48 yarder down field to start clinching yet another Colts win.

    That play absolutly made me sick. It's not like he even did anything. He made a tackle for a 8 yard gain. Thats a minus play.

    It wasn't a pass over Dunta's head so it doesn't matter.

    Yes, that event ranks high on my list of unforgettable moments in my football viewing experiences. I recall the tackle and celebration although it was on the other side of the field, but what caught my attention the most was how quickly Manning got everybody lined up and threw that bomb. How embarrassing.
