New Orleans Saints CB Patrick Robinson Needs More Development

3 of 4

As suspected after he aired those comments, quarterbacks began to pick on Robinson and threw his way on several plays for big yards.  The latest game against the Houston Texans really made things obvious.

Robinson was given the task of covering WR Andre Johnson who is extremely physical with speed to match.  I was nervous about this match up and it ended up being justified.

He once again gave Johnson plenty of cushion and on some plays appeared to be lost.  Robinson also let receivers get behind him and by the time he caught up, the pass was completed.

Thankfully, Porter is back healthy and should be placed back in the starting role opposite Greer on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.  Though Porter has been out much, his experience is needed.

It’s clear that Robinson needs more development at his position and I don’t want to declare him a bust yet.  However, the old name of CB Jason David is creeping up when Robinson’s name is mentioned.
