Maybe he didn't give away any receptions against KC, which I can't say for sure because I'm not a lexicon of CB plays, but he got beat by Baldwin on a couple of plays but Baldwin likes juggle balls not catch them. Also Brock has not played a majority of the preseason snaps. Cox played more than him in the first 2 preseasons game by about 5 snaps each game. Cox has been going against the 1st and 2nd string offense at NB/CB whereas Brock has seen most of the tail end snaps. Cox has been more impressive against the 1st string than Brock has against the 3rd string. I guess saying he's bad is unfair. He's not good though. I really hope they give Cox a look as the #4.
This is where you flat out are I can't take you serious. Brock before the Vikings game was THE NB and first CB to come in the game. He played against the first string more than Cox in the first two preseason games. Cox hasn't been better against first stringers and that is another lie. He played terribly against the Vikings 1st string and didn't see the field against Manning and the crew in game 1. Yes, he played well against the Chiefs but so did Brock. And you are right Baldwin did drop one pass against Brock that game. However, that was the only pass attempt that came his way.
Just for comparison sake, Cox has allowed 68 yards in 74 coverage snaps, compared to 31 yards in 62 coverage snaps for Brock. And obviously he has faced off against the first team more than Cox.
Anyone else want to make to make up some bogus things about Brock?
