How do you grade a cornerback? I would happen to think things like catches and yards against, penalties, and missed tackles are pretty important for a CB.

While this is true, if a CB blankets a receiver and forces the QB to go in a different direction, no stat is obtained.

Which they never did with Wright since he was #1 in the league in 2011 in receptions given up.

This is what I'm basically saying. If he has a lot of missed tackles, and a lot of attempts and completions coming at him, it means that he's being targeted a lot. Good CB like Revis and Nnamdi in his prime weren't targeted at all. Saying "stats are for losers" is a silly comment that ignores the facts that Wrights an average NFL CB...at best.

What if they were all 2 yard receptions because the coaches had him playing off the line, ala Nolan? lol

Then that's reflected in the yards and QB rating when throwing his way.

I think the fact that stating stats are for losers is sorta just BSing. lol

I was thinking that too. Maybe its his ability to cover the slot, maybe they think he matches up well with some of the receiver in the NFC West. Just throwing stuff out there, its really odd they would go after a player that's injured and has off-field issues.

Somebody got it! lol
I don't like how they had to waive Lowell Rose to get this guy. According to Barrows, Rose was locked up in press coverage against everyone the other day in scrimmages and nobody could complete a pass on him.
