I think we're all hopeful that Prince can be our shut down corner...that's what we envisioned when we drafted him. Last year he was iur best corner but that wasn't saying much because we stunk.
Put it this way....we are more excited about Moore, Wilson and Cox than we ever been about Prince and that's because Prince haven't shown us enough ....from what should be expected from a first round pick.

You cant expect prince to shut down dez, Prince is not a top corner in this league(atleast not yet) dez is a top 3 reciever in this league.. but you can definetley prevent him from single handedly winning the game like he almost did last year. The best way we stop dez imo is up front. We need serious pressure every play to help out who ever is covering dez..and it dam well better not be webster!
Before crowning him he needs to take this camp & preseason onto the regular season field. Rising/up & coming, however you want to phrase it, doesn't mean s@#t if he doesn't meet that potential. I'm rooting for him, but it's time to step his game up.
