Food for thought: Grimes, Revis, joe Hayden,Verner, Jonathan Joseph, Flowers are all 6ft and under and were top 10 corners this season. CBs over 6ft in the top 10: Sherman, Peterson, Talib(played Safety) soo height doesn't translate directly into being able to push WRs around.
I would rather have a Sherman type than anybody else. Can you not say the same? Look at the last play. He bats that ball because he is tall with super long arms. He can reach it at 6'3" with very long arms. A shorter DB might not reach it. Which makes a difference in the game.
True but he's human and has his weaknesses. I forgot which analyst said it, but apparently, he flipped his hips the wrong way on that last play. I'm really excited to see how he does when he's facing an elite receiver that has an elite QB throwing to him. Closest thing we got to seeing tht was Carson Palmer and Fitzgerald, but if you look at their schedule, they played teams that either had an elite QB w/mediocre receivers, an average QB tht couldn't get the ball to his one elite receiver, or teams that had niether.
