Agree with most everything you said...Shut down CBs are rare in todays game, and I would take Diggs over most CBs in the league. That said however he isnt a shut down CB, that just isnt his biggest attribute, at least yet.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
The pass given up was probably more on Kazee, however if you are labeling someone "shut down" it shouldnt matter. Diggs has gotten considerably better as a cover man the last several weeks. Hope that trend continues and he will truly be in the "elite" category.
I'm a fan of the guy, I just dont see him as "shut down" just yet. By doing so is a very loose use of the term. Hes more of a gambler. Nothing wrong with that, just different styles of play. He keeps getting better (Only in year 2) and he may very well end up as that shut down guy who can still get 5-10 INTs a year and end up in the hall of fame.
