    I just don't think Verner is as good as he was playing in the first 4 games. His production has dropped off and he has gotten burned on some passes lately. He is small and smart, I think we want more big and physical moving forward. We will see what the FO thinks about him moving forward, but personally I don't think McCourty/ Verner scares any team out there. It would be great to find a guy like Sherman or Browner.

    Youre getting caught up in the measurables. We tried going that route with Andre Woolfolk.

    Give me the instinctive football player over the big athlete.

    Verner has to play Andre Johnson twice a year... its not even a contest. Verner or McCourty verses Andre, Calvin, Julio... I don't care how instinctive they are, our little corners will loose a lot of those matchups.

    Lets check that.

    Andre Johnson vs our DB's this year: 8 catches 76-yards. 2012: 8 catches 112-yards. 2011: 2 catches 21-yards. When you break those numbers down Andre Johnson averages only 4 catches for 51-yards vs Verner and McCourty.

    You still want to keep going?

    Didn't he miss a game in 2012 and 2011 vs us? Schaub missed a game last year also IIRC... Kind of skewed stats.

    Not skewed at all, I factored in those very little details.

    I know what Im doing. You shouldnt call me out on those things when you yourself didn't check the facts. :cool:

    So in the one game AJ played against us in 2012 he had 8 catches for 112 yards. This year he had 8 catches for 76 yards in one game. My bad, Verner and McCourty are shut down CBs; you are right!

    No, he had 8 catches week-2 and 8 catches all of 2012. Get it right upright.

    He must be thinking of Nick Harper... same jersey #.

    Only logical explanation because I can't remember the last time Andre Johnson did anything against us.
