Falcons CB Full Season Stats for 2010: DR and Grimey

Before we jump in to individual numbers let's look at the Passing numbers compared to last year. There is a significant improvement in the numbers and the biggest improvement compared to last year is in Big Plays (20 + yards) given up.  The actual number of Pass Attempts this year has increased compared to last year, the teams are throwing but the pass coverage improved leaps and bounds.

It's very hard to compare Performance of Dunta Robinson with Brent Grimes unless you take defensive schemes in to account. Dunta Robinson is in single Coverage most of the time. If he misses a tackle or jumps a route it will result in touchdown (remember the Touch Down to Mike Williams in the Tampa game). His role is to hold the right side and limit the big plays. Grimes on the other end has help from DeCoud . Grimes can play aggressive and attack the ball, if he misses it's still ok because he got help.

Take a look at the numbers of Both Dunta and Brent Grimes and make your own Conclusion. But remember both are good in what they are supposed to do and  we are lucky to have a great debate.

Key Observations:

1.       Grimes is the MVP among our DB's, but you can say DR's presence enables him to play aggressive ball.

2.       Brent Grimes is by far the most targeted CB. (46 % more than DR).  He is thrown at 119 times which is 21% of the total Pass attempts against falcons and gave up 676 Yards ( 18.4% of the total passing Yards).

3.       Grimes 23 PD is a falcon's record.

4.       DR is targeted 81 times this year (14 % of the total Pass attempts against falcons). For a guy who is usually in single Coverage that's a good indicator that teams don't take too many chances on him.

5.       Brent Grimes is tied with William Moore with his 5 interceptions. Remember he had 6 interceptions last year.

6.       Dunta had just 1 PI call against him compared to 6 PI calls against the RCB Chris Houston last year.

7.       Dunta's last touchdown was in Carolina game in Garbage time.  Grimes  gave up 4 Touchdowns and DR gave up 3 TD if you count the relevant time.
