CB Jabari Greer—Grade—A-
Two interceptions speaks volumes about the play of Jabari Greer in this contest. There was one play in which Greer was beaten badly in one-on-one coverage but Josh Freeman overthrew his intended target. Aside from that, Greer played a near perfect game.
CB Corey White—Grade—N/A
White is out again, due to an injury.
CB Patrick Robinson—Grade—B+
Patrick Robinson played OK. As he has become the Saints’ No. 1 corner, he is being targeted less often than in the past. Still, Robinson was pushed off against on the lone memorable reception that came against him.
CB Elbert Mack—Grade—B
Mack continued his solid play as the nickel corner. His play has been a bit of a revelation in the past month.
S Roman Harper—Grade—B-
Roman Harper didn’t play as well as in previous weeks. He made a key mistake on an early third down wheel route out of the backfield. He had his eyes caught in the backfield instead of on his man. But he continued to fly all over the field and make key tackles.
S Malcolm Jenkins—Grade—N/A
Malcolm Jenkins was placed on Injured Reserve earlier this week.
S Isa Abdul-Quddas—Grade—B
Quddas had one of the easiest interceptions any NFL defender could ever have. He easily stayed with the aging Dallas Clark one-on-one on a deep route and simply caught the interception with almost no resistance from Clark. His play was solid otherwise.
S Rafael Bush—Grade—B+
Bush saw more time in defensive sub-packages and again made a huge impact on the football game. Much like Mack, Bush has been a revelation for the Saints’ defense. He has the ball skills that are often seen from elite corners or safeties. He also has the body of a corner. Could we see him switch to corner this offseason?
