    By my count, here's how teams have fared when passing against our three cornerbacks so far. (Passes batted at the line of scrimmage are not included)

    Against Newman -- 9-for-18, 110 yards, two interceptions, no touchdowns (29.6 passer rating)

    Against Henry -- 12-for-25, 230 yards, one interception, two touchdowns (90.4 passer rating)

    Against Glenn -- 4-for-9, 157 yards, one interception, two touchdowns (91.1 passer rating)

    All three combined -- 25-for-52, 497 yards, four interceptions, four touchdowns (75.5 passer rating)


    A few things to note --

    -- On fourth downs, our opponents are 3-for-4 for 92 yards, one interception and one touchdown (116.6 passer rating). They're 1-for-1 for 20 yards against Newman, 1-for-1 for 33 yards against Henry and 1-for-2 for 39 yards, one interception and one touchdown against Glenn.

    -- All three cornerbacks have allowed a 50 percent completion rate or less. Considering that we've been playing quite a bit of zone, that seems pretty good.

    -- Newman has allowed 12.2 yards per catch, which is decent. But Henry has allowed 19.2 ypc and Glenn has allowed 39.3. Obviously, the deep ball is killing us. We've played good pass defense other than four or five plays.

    -- The two interceptions thrown against Newman include the one he tipped away and Nguyen caught.

    -- Newman allowed one catch to a running back (Portis for 6 yards). All of the other catches against our cornerbacks have been by wide receivers.


    On a side note, through three games, Roy hasn't allowed a catch to any receiver (including tight ends and running backs) when he had primary responsibility (other than a 13-yarder that was wiped out by an offensive penalty in the San Diego game). Davis has allowed four catches for 66 yards and two touchdowns in primary responsibility.

    Very informative, TNew is really having a good year. I wonder how many of those long passes involved Keith Davis.

    Thanks for the information, but why would this be counted as an interception in the passer rating if he did not intercept it? Wouldn't it just be an incompletion?

    He created the interception by knocking the ball away. (I didn't count the interception when the 49ers tried to throw to his guy but the ball was batted and intercepted, because Newman had nothing to do with it.) If you count Nguyen's interception as an incompletion, the passer rating against Newman is 46.0.

    If we use Adjusted Passing Average instead of passer rating, it's 0.556 against Newman (3.333 without the second interception), 7.200 against Henry and 11.889 against Glenn.

    He tipped the ball. It could have very well been an incompletion had Nguyen not been in position. To me, that would be a pass defensed, not an interception unless he did it himself.

    That second interception really should be a pass deflection. Dat completed the play not Newman. If Dats not there then that is what it is.

    He is still top notch without it.

    Davis is absolutely horrid. I think im going to start the Get Rid Of Davis Movement.

    GROD makes sense; he is costing us games.

    It needs to be GRODAS (Get Rid of Davis at Safety) movement. Davis is incredibly good on special teams.

    Adam, you mentioned the CB's and Roy, but what about the free safety? I can't imagine it looks good at all.
