In Response to Re: My theory on the bodden cut : You mean good Qbs are over 60%? Do you know if any of these websites provide CB completion % allowed? I see they posted Bodden's numbers, I wonder if they keep a running total for all players? Anyway, does allowing 56% completion for a CB sound high to you? I don't think it sounds bad but don't have the numbers to base it on.

My guess is just outside the top ten? I just base that on the fact that most QBs with good completion percentages fatten up with 75%+ inside 10 and 5 yards.
But using a whole team's stats as a gauge overlooks the fact that your third and fourth corner play the third and fourth WR.
Given that Bodden doesn't play outside anymore, because BB bumped him in, and when he has played outside this season (against Buffalo for a few plays) he was beaten badly, and he is facing mediocre competition, it seems like bad numbers. Really, third or fourth corner numbers.
Hence, the move. Molden plays special teams as well.
But this also reduces 'play' to skill plays that show up. He has also missed a handful of tackles, which is extremely unlike him. Even in his mediocre seasons, he was always a decent tackler for a corner.
Furthermore, BB, really coaches, rely on players to 'be in position' and we don't know how well he was executing there. You could actually not have the ball thrown in your direction and still make a big mistake that the QB just didn't pick up.
If Molden is much worse than that, and Bodden lights it up somewhere else, then whatever, another miss. The CB shuffle NE is going through here is starting to remind me a little of the shortstop situation with the Red Sox. LOL.
