    Kyle Arrington

    I'm surprised I haven't heard anything on this site about how well he's doing (so far).  Or in the media for that matter.  What do you guys think about his play thus far?  I think he's playing pretty well!  BB must think that as well seeing as how he's often been the #2 CB much of the time.

    actually, he got positive responses two weeks ago after the Bills game during and x's and o's discussion. So far, so good.  The entire D needs to keep it up, keep games close during first 5-6 games.

    He is what he is. Good run defender, good tackler, creates turnovers, plays every game, iffy cover corner. The perfect BB CB. Arrington plays exactly how BB wants his corners to play. 

    If you are a corner that doesnt play the run, takes gambles and is a weak tackler, dont bother (see Assante)

    Arrington looks great out there. He is playing real aggressive out there- his on ball coverage and open field tackling has been the big plus for him. He made a great play on the ball v the jets tipping up a pass that fell into Talibs hands and he also had a great open field tackle v a bigger Stephen Hill on a huge 3rd & 2. His play is also great because he is playing in the slot where he thrives most

    He's made a couple of mental mistakes that's lead to broken coverage but overall he's been very solid and has caused turnovers  so he's been worth the contract they gave him so far. If he continues with this level of play all year this will be his best year yet

    Agree.  Arrington has been very good thus far.  In today's NFL, no corner is going to be perfect in coverage.  Too many variables favor the offense now.  I'll take Arrington's play this year any day of the week.  I hope he keeps it up.  He has really stepped up his game.

    Arrington is like many Belichick players before him, might not have a career on many other teams but in our system is incredible as a specialist in the slot.  I caught a lot of heck prior to the season suggesting that he was one of the better nickel corners in the NFL, he may not be a starter out on the edge, but he controls the middle of the field very well.

    Agree completely. Arrington on the edge last year with Dennard/McCourty (before he was safety) was horrible that's when the D had no pass rush or coverage skills. That's when Sanchez dropped 300 on us. The moment we got Talib, Arringtons play took off in the slot, he seems 100 times more comfortable in the slot.

    I agree he has been good but playing nickel will also require you to play the deep ball as well. I will say this, He is excellent as long as teams dont test him deep. As well as he has played, the one time they sent someone deep on him IN the slot, he was beat by 3 yards and the over the top help was late - Touchdown. They just need to protect him, which is hard to do when your safeties are trying to protect the outside CBs. Ive always liked his tacking ability and agressive play but I prefer he not just run into players head first like he did last year and knock himself out of games. Still got that special teamer in him, but I like his play for the most part its just we havent played anyone so Ill see if it continues.

    Re: Kyle Arrington

    The whole defensive backfield has done a better job. Arrington, Talib, Dennard, Gregory, McCourty are all gelling together. In this pass-happy league, the DBs are tested continuously so hopefully this group will continue their high standard of play against experienced QBs as well. Also, let's hope they remain injury-free. The safety play, in particular, has been a happy surprise for me -especially Gregory.

    One thing they can improve on though is the corner to safety communications. Talib and Gregory had a snafu that led to a Buffalo TD. Arrington and McCourty had a similar incident. This kind of communication does improve with more reps so hopefully they will continue to get better.

    But back to Arrington, he sometimes plays a hybrid nickel back/small free safety role in the middle of the field, leaving McCourty and Gregory free to back up the other corners. Tough role since he can get burned on deep passes and has limited safety coverage. I saw him deployed in some running plays as well. BB must trust his versatility but he is in a high-risk role.

    Incredible?  How incredible could any corner be playing on a bad pass D? If Talib is great, MCourty is fantastic, Arrington is incredible, who gave up the 4300 yards last year?

    They've also ranked #1, #2 and 5th in the entire NFL in interceptions for the past three years, the defense gave up yards because the front seven couldn't sack, the bad news for the Jests is now they can.

    Don't get your panties in a bunch because Arrington robbed your rookie QB of a sure TD last week... you want to see bad, look at the Jests QB's, they have three terrible ones.  See I have adjectives to describe them as well.  

    Why don't you go see if you can coax Fireman Ed out of retirement from embarrassment first before hanging out on a board that will only bring you more pain as the season goes on?

    How incredible could any defensive lineman be on a bad run D?  If Wilkerson, Coples and Ellis were so great who gave up the 2100 rushing yards last season?

    Incredible is that a fan of a team in the depths of despair, with a coach on the outs  who has a foot fetish for Mark Snachez would have the gumption to show his face at all.  Laughable...

    As far as your lame "sack" excuse for the patsie D goes, you're an idiot.

    Yeah I can see how facts, statistics and logic confound you to the point of name calling... one phrase defines you:

    Butt fumble.  You're the joke of the sporting world, but you're used to that.
