Look at Kyle Arringont last year. Led league in ints, one of the worst corners in the league.
Went to the Superbowl.
We're talking defense here, not offense. This board leaves my jaw hanging sometimes.
I don't think this is fair. A Rookie QB made our Safeties look like what they are. I don't think you can really put that on the CBs, per say. Could they have played better? Of course, there is always room for that but what I was was a team picking on the Safeties and beating the living daylights out of them.
Exactly, Mo and Carr together were only targeted 10 some times. I think Mo was 1 for 3 and the catch went for negative and Carr was 4/7 with ~40 yards and a TD. Our corners were amazing that game. Also, Carr had a giftwrapped int that somehow, the receivers who drop everything, came up with huge catches for RG3 Thursday.
I remeber like yesterday....we were choosing between Henry and Antioine Winfield (sp?)...I believe he went to Ohio State....and STILL plays for the Vikings. He would have been the better choice from a production standpoint...but MOST importantly...leadership. He was a physical...fierce competitor.
Right, but you don't think finishing second in the league in INT's as a team helped New England get to the Superbowl?
Witty as can be.
I see your point, but to be fair I don't think the original poster's sentiments were too inane. Each and every one of us are wont to subjective perspectives.
Hos in all honesty, if I were Jerry, I would hand-pick you to be in the ring that takes part in the decision making processes for the franchise.
With Hos at the epicenter, this franchise's arrow would be pointing in one direction and one direction only...
The defensive backs certainly deserve credit for that. But you can't discount what having an elite offense does for an average defense. The opposing QBs have to throw as much as, well, Romo. This leads to turnovers in the form of aggressive/forced throws.
Hosaroo, you've got the sense of humour too.
Point taken. If we were good enough offensively to build early leads, maybe we'd get some of those too. But on the other hand you could also say that some of those 23 INT's New England got last year contributed to the Patriots scoring so many points. They probably got short field a lot of the time.
