    Hobbs had some great returns. But the interference penalty he took where he didn't even turn to look at the ball. That one really hurts.

    He was on an island with Wayne for much of the night and did a great job in spite of the PI call.

    I agree that Hobbs played a tremendous game tonight, which is why it is such a shame that it was all for naught. Too bad his effort couldn't have resulted in a victory.

    no..he got beat maybe twice..missed a tackle on that WAyne run across the field

    5 catches 68 yards is pretty good for a 2nd year guy against Manning + Colts..and i dont think all of Wayne's catches were on him anyways

    He was matched up one on one with Wayne all night and only gave up 5 catches for 68 yards. Hobbs had an excellent game other than his face guarding penalty.

    Heh, if NEM thinks he is the worst corner in the league after tonight, he must of been watching a different game than I was. He played very solid tonight on defense and made the plays when he needed to, plus he kept us in the game with some great kickoff returns when our offense was sputtering. Anyone complaining about Hobbs tonight is foolish IMO.

    As usual, your comments about Hobbs are wrong. All CBs get beat...Hobbs will be no different. It's a very difficult position to play and learn. Give him some time to develop further. He was recently injured, yet played through it. And in his rookie season, we had him covering slot receivers -- something he never did in college. Now that he mans the RCB position, he feels at home, so allow him to grow into it.

    Law wasn't Law when he was drafted -- he developed. And Samuel is having a career season after resembling a nickel prior to. Hobbs is not without flaws...but he's smart, tough, a hard worker, and improving.

    Let's draft a CB because we may lose Samuel...and we'll need insurance if either goes down. Not because Hobbs is a huge liablity -- because he's not.

    This is why we all laugh at NEM. He could validate his points if he admitted he was wrong. But Hobbs played a great game - even if he had to make the play as the receiver was catching it. 5-68 someone posted, for a pro bowl WR who Hobbs had little help with. Good work.

    Face guarding is not against the rules. It seemed to me that the ball was gonna bounce of Hobbs' back weather he bumped the Colt guy or not. Doesn't that make it an 'uncatchable ball?' I'm positive that PI wouldn't have been called if Hobbs never touched him and I don't see how Hobbs unfairly prevented the guy from catching it either since it would have never reached him.

    I don't understand that rule. A few years ago a Patriot LB made basically the same play against the Jets, he was running toward the receiver, didn't see the ball and it hit him in the back. Not flag. I don't know.

    1. He didn't get beat all night long.

    2. You don't know what you're talking about, as always.

    3. We lost in large part because we couldn't cover Dallas Clark. Not Hobbs' responsibility.
