    Do we Have a Shutdown Corner?

    Xavien Howard


    Xavien Howard - DB - Dolphins

    Dolphins CB Xavien Howard was named AFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 14.
    Howard was incredible in the Dolphins' upset win over the Patriots this past Monday night. He picked off Tom Brady twice, becoming only the second player to do so over the last 10 seasons, and Howard was simply terrific in coverage all night. Over the last three games, Pro Football Focus has charted Howard with seeing 17 targets in his coverage. He's allowed two catches for 30 yards in that span, while picking off four and swatting away four others.

    Do we all Agree?

    If the Dolphins keep going with more man-to-man coverage, then 100% yes we have a legit 1CB in Howard. That is his game. He is physical. You can't succeed being a physical CB in a zone scheme. We've seen the failure that brings. We played man coverage against one of the greatest QB's of all time and we shut him down.

    Tankersley might be one of the fastest players on team, period, too. And he can stick with his receiver well too.

    I think if they truly stick with a man coverage scheme, we have a legit 1CB and 2CB on the roster already in Howard and Tank.

    Looked like the real deal to me.

    He has had two great games, let's hold the reins here a bit and see what he does the rest of the year.

    Howard has been good since day 1 imo. he is for real. I thought he was the better pick than Tunsil

    2 good games in a row. Playing in man more is great and the fact that he's not panicking as much when he loses deep is awesome. But Tank has been the best CB by far this year.

    I think Howard has been the best CB we have had since he stepped on as a rookie and I don't even think its close. Tank has been burned a lot this yr. I think Howard is better than Reshad as well. before his injury I had Reshad as the #3 S behind Mathieu who I have at #1 still and Kam at #2 but Reshad hasn't returned to his former self yet. I love Howard and think he has a legit chance of being the best CB we ever had

    Hopefully he is. The last shutdown corner we had was Sean Smith according to Pro Football Focus.
