Diggs is a shutdown corner

Diggs gets an interception after giving up 85 yards on average. Ramsey gets an interception after giving up 127 yards on average. Which one would you choose?


Diggs electrifies his teammates and they start playing better because they don't want him to be the only guy out there making plays. Diggs is better for over all team success than Ramsey ever could be.

Oh boy!

Before last night, he had given up 899 yards in receptions, the worst of the starting CB's in the league. Byron Jones was more of a shut down.

He is a very talented CB with exceptional call skills. It is those ball skills that got him into the PB.
Byron Jones was and still is VASTLY overated. He was such a good cover corner that he always lined up on the TE. :facepalm:

He has 0 instincts and was a big reason our defenses never had turnovers.

Stats don’t lie.
Am I glad we have him? Yes.
Does he give up a lot of yards / big plays? Yes.

Diggs is our best cb and I like him much better than Byron Jones and I need to keep in perspective it’s his second year and he’s going to get better

I don’t know that hes a shutdown corner just yet he gives up plays but I’ll take him. Hes the best we’ve had in sometime
KJ might be better.

If you give up the most yards you are not a shutdown CB. But getting 11 interceptions makes you dangerous to throw at.

Newsflash: There are no "Shutdown Corners" in the NFL anymore. The rules prohibit that.

However, saying that someone is not good because people catch passes on them, yet they are about to set a Cowboys record for Ints in a season and lead the league in ints and passes defenced- may make you fall into the category of "shutdown brains".

Just sayin'.

This is an ignorant topic. If you get TOs that's what matters.

How can anyone not agree with that? Unless you are just stupid?

It’s not an ignorant topic at all. The problem is people don’t under how to evaluate Diggs play correctly. They either don’t watch or don’t know what they’re watching.

Stupid. TOs change the outcome of games. It's what everyone measures a defense by. The ability to get TOs and hand the ball back to the offense. Do u disagree with that?

If you do. Then you are just as stupid as all the rest.

The purpose of the e defense is to prevent the other team from scoring and give the ball back to the offense. Trevon has done that 11x already this year…and he’s scored 2TDs. What else would you like him to do?

He wasn’t on him the entire time. That is true. But that is my point. If he’s so good, why not? Minnesota literally has nobody else that needs any attention.

especially with Adam T. out, he is there only WR. Prime would have followed him to the bathroom if he had too.

I’m not here to hate on diggs but the info from the OP is wrong.

1) you hardly see CBS shadow receivers anymore.
2) they threw at diggs yesterday and he gave up a long pass w safety help
3) his off grade is from being bad in the run game.

love diggs, he’s a CB1 in the nfl. He’s still prone to giving up big plays but I’ll take it given the upside he had. Is he shutdown? No


how many teams even have that kind of " shut down " CBs to even try to do that ?
and that one long pass you're pertaining seems more like Kazee's failure to make the inside play while Diggs' task to handle the over the top task.

i wanna see stats that indicate Diggs has improve and given up LESS big plays and yellow penalty flags in the 2nd half - because it sure feels like

Diggs has allowed the most yards of any CB in the NFL (nothing to do with PFF rankings), so someone has beaten him.

Hard to call him a shutdown corner (yet) with those numbers but he's definitely a playmaker.
