    EH. He certainly was better than those three, but that didn't mean much. He got worked pretty good on the outside. Not as much as those three, but he had two straight pretty bad weeks out there.

    No! It isn't. Do some research for yourself. Both McCain and Minkah were tried at boundary and both..............were a catastrophe.

    Minkah is top of the league at slot and imo should be used often in a pass rushing role from the slot as well; or I should say, more often.

    The Dolphins need a starting boundary corner and a backup boundary corner. Jalen Davis is a good prospect to backup both nickel and dime positions, but McTyre was terrible as well.

    Actually, I should mention that I have hope for Dee Delaney. His under the radar addition may not be that of a camp body. Dolphins might have something there, at least as boundary backup maybe.

    I didn’t need to do research. I watched the boundary play opposite of X and Minkah was clearly the best option we had in 2018. He was far from a catastrophe . . . .hyperbole much? If he turns his head around on plays he gave up, his ability in coverage was actually much more impressive than I thought he’d give you outside

    Aren’t you the research/stats guy? Since PFF didn’t have the statistics you rely on, what research have you done to confirm how bad he was on the boundary?

    FYI, for the guys lambasting Cordrea Tankersley play last year, Tankersley tore his ACL last year and only played 29 snaps.

    It could be over for him, but if he is healthy enough for camp, he will get a shot to compete. Percentages are really against him, and if he isn't ready for camp he will be released and probably have to try to catch on with a team riddled with injuries at CB, later in the season.

    It is unfair to say that he played bad last year because he really didn't get a legitimate shot.

    Your always making those statements about your great eyeballs, like you are the greatest evaluator to ever live and watching games is all you need to make up your mind about everything.

    Why is your memory a better source than professional analytics??

    Please tell us why your eyeballs, your perspective is the end all be all of player evaluations??

    As far as PFF goes, you saw the evaluation of his play at slot corner in the original post, right? Remember......absolute top of the league at slot corner.

    Now, pay attention: For the entire year, Minkah was ranked 79th in the league among CB's with qualifying snaps.

    Now, do you get the picture??

    His performance on the boundary was so bad that it nullified his stellar play at slot, hence the 69.1 grade. 379 snaps at slot,281 at the boundary.

    He did not have a camp at cb and the only problem was getting his head around. He is going to be playing multiple positions and it was the media who created that question and yes in last years system being a rookie it is extremely difficult to study 3 positions weekly because you don’t know what the need will be & to play full time safety bulk would have been needed to play cb slot and some free safety speed is needed & that is what he is working on

    That's not how statistics work mate..

    Also...PFF in not a professional analytics, it is a couple of English gents giving it their best on a tape eval without any information on play or responsibility. They find marks who are willing to pay for the "premium" package so they can feel like the "smartest" guys on the forum.

    Hope you are getting your money's worth.

    This guy is the Westboro Baptist Church for PFF.

    I stopped following them when they couldn't tell the difference between man and zone a few years ago lol.

    Tank lost his job in training camp. He must have come in out of shape, and never recovered. I would like to see him back but he has to work harder to achieve even his rookie level, much less a quality boundary.

    TJ McDonald's most memorable play of the season cost us a win against Cincy? I mean we were destined to lose that game anyway but did he not push a dude in the back out of bounds on a 3rd down stop that netted Cincy a first down inside of FG range, instead of punting or a long FG?

    IIRC.
