Not his best night. Still have high hope for him.
I remember Patrick Peterson struggling with the same thing last season. Maybe it's because they can be more physical in the SEC? At any rate, he adjusted nicely and so will mo
I kept waiting for somebody to go up to him and tell him he was playing against Riley Cooper.
He doesn't seem to be doing it because he's getting beat, but rather because he's just "handsy". That will get better. A couple were kind of ticky tack -- he doesn't need to get a reputation for this, though.
actually, i wanted to get a discussion going on the holding called on claiborne and scandrick that occurred during press coverage - both times the play was on the other side of the field or away from where the holding was called. And the holding occurred within 5 yards where you are allowed contact.
Bad/good calls by the refs ? and also will rob's defense incur these calls frequently because of the amount of press coverage called.
LOL, i was thinking the same
i do watch alot of sec football games and it does seem alot of cbs do get away with hands on receivers more. claiborne needs to work on his hand placement on receivers when he does watch out he will be a corner not to be picked on. he also rookie so teams are testing him alot.
Not particularly worried about this. If he is still doing it two years, thats another story.
Patrick Peterson is still getting roasted this year.
Part of me wonders if part of the problem is trying to be physical.
In the sense that he was getting his hands on the WR early but really wasn't disrupting much so he either stuck with the contact to try and get the job done or stuck with it because he knew he would give up positioning.
Being physical is great and I suspect he'll improve in that area as he works through an NFL training program and improves on technique but when you are trying to be physical and not really impeding the WR at all, I think this is kind of what you get.
Scandrick is also handsy.
Not worried about Mo. He has the mind of a playmaker.
Looks more like a cover corner than a 'playmaker' to me. But I guess it depends upon your definition.
Watch more closely.
he's been getting away with it all year, that's why he was so shocked it was getting called.
Mo will be fine. He will be a cornerstone of the secondary for years.
maybe the refs just called a tighter game tonight regarding that.
Not worried about him, he has played half an NFL season. If anything, a game like this will even motivate him further to excel in the future, it is a learning curve.
I personally thought most of them were BS. Especially the one were he held Cooper's hand with his shoulder pad.
One of the calls was ticky tacky and I don't remember the other well enough. He's going to get those with how he presses but that's him and Ryan's D as well. He's got to learn to chuck harder then get in their pocket. And you can't get caught holding their jersey or arm whatever.
