    I know this was his first game back from injury..but man..he is no where close to what he was last year. I really hope last year wasn't a fluke..he NEEDS a big game before the playoffs..if not..not confident with him at all...

    Looks like a sophomore slump. I'm with you in being nervous about this kid. Hope he gets it together fast.

    It seems like a confidence issue. He isn't totally out of position but its like he's doesn't want to look for the ball in fear of losing his man.

    Re: Mccourty..are you getting nervous?

    He looked just as bad, if not worse the first few games of the season. Was playing much better until the injury.

    He seems to be affected by rust, first the lockout now the injury, I'll wait until late December to get nervous.

    Re: Mccourty..are you getting nervous?

    Not really. I thought he had looked better of late after sucking in the beginning of the year.

    Consistency seems to be his issue, now, which is typical for those experiencing the dreaded sophomore slump.

    Re: Mccourty..are you getting nervous?

    he has not been good at man coverage all year and this was he's first game back from injury vs a pretty good WR, but it is what it is guys like Vince Young and Dan Orlovsky will throw for 300+ on this defense and it's going to be like that every week

    Why is he still a starter? Make him earn it. Sick of seeing him get toasted.

    Re: Mccourty..are you getting nervous?

    Because we have no one else? So you just want to give up on him right now? With how thin we are in the secondary. LOL

    Re: Mccourty..are you getting nervous?

    What's LOL is McCourty's play. A scrub off the street certainly couldn't be much worse.

    Looks like we can dust off the Dez Bryant / McCourty argument again huh?

    Re: Mccourty..are you getting nervous?

    So your opinion is that McCourty hasn't been bad?

    Re: Mccourty..are you getting nervous?

    No, because (A) Dez would have fared little better than Taylor Price, and (B) it's McCourty + Hernandez v. Dez.

    Re: Mccourty..are you getting nervous?

    I think we all acknowledge that McCourty hasn't lived up to expectations, and his play has diminished from his freshman form.

    Your notion that any player off the street would perform better than him is laughably stupid. You're an idiot. Next.

    Re: Mccourty..are you getting nervous?

    Of course he's been bad..but you have to wait out the year before you bench him for another no name or a guy we don't have. I still trust him to make more plays than the out guy replacing him..even if he hasn't made a play.


    Yeah let's bench our #1 corner..that will show em!

    Re: Mccourty..are you getting nervous?

    I'll still take Dez, we have a great TE and a great slot WR. We need a play maker on the outside or we are EFFED in the playoffs. As I write this, Dez just caught a TD from Romo.

    Re: Mccourty..are you getting nervous?


    Philip Adams outplayed McCourty this year until he got cut. Molden has played just as well too. Those are guys off of the street. I'm not writing off McCourty at all. But, he's been god-awful this year. And, to describe his play any other way is disingenuous.

    Well I'll tell you this: we're going to have a hard time winning a championship with a starting CB that just straight-up gets abused. Maybe we don't have another CB that won't get abused just as bad. Well, that doesn't bode well for the Patriots.

    Re: Mccourty..are you getting nervous?

    Except Arrington has been our #1 by a mile this year. 44QB rating against Arrington vs a 120 against McCourty. Probably more lopsided after today, McCourty gave up at least one more TD. Not sure who the other was on.

    I'm not saying bench McCourty, but he hasn't even been close to our #1 this season. He's getting picked on like Butler was at the start of last season.

    Butler DID get benched after having similar games.

    also is he a bit of a dum dum? Cant take all the advice and coaching and put it into action?

    ALso it looks like he cannot play zone - which i believe BB put him in during thr 4th Q. I was distracted by the shots of Steve Wynns facelifted mug in Krafts box a few times so im not sure

    McCourty may have shown some rust, but he has been a mere shadow of his former self all year. If this were his first year, he would have been benched in favor of Mouldin. He is playing worse than just about every corner on the roster. He is playing in hopes that he will become the player he once was, and because confidence is a delicate thing. If playoffs started tomorrow, I would hope he does not start.

    Re: Mccourty..are you getting nervous?

    Stats wise yes..but if the pats had to choose Mccourty over Arrington..they would keep Mccourty and drop Arrington


    So if cromartie was outplaying revis by a mile this year.he would be their #1 corner? No they would still line revis up on the best WR

    He's been terrible this year. Can't believe he's wearing a C.
