TreDavious White has had a sensational rookie campaign.
However, Week 5 was not one of his brighter spots.
The first-year corner was given the tall task of shadowing A.J. Green. He did a good job for the most part, but a pair of coverage lapses led to a 77-yard touchdown and a late, game-changing reception by the star wideout.
You have to take the bad with the good with a rookie corner like White. Hopefully, he can bounce back in Week 7 when he takes on another tough wide receiver in Mike Evans.
At this point, I’m sure you’ve read all of the articles and columns about LeSean McCoy’s poor Week 5 performance, but it’s true, he was really bad.
Pro Football Focus ranked McCoy as the worst running back in Week 5. He had a decent running game and saw one huge run get called back, but he had three drops as well.
"“It’s tough,” McCoy said after the loss, via ESPN.com. “No one judges a game like myself, so I’m angry about it.”"
It has been a frustrating season for McCoy as the offense has been unable to get the ground game going thanks to change in scheme and struggles on the offensive line.
It could be some more tough sledding for McCoy in Week 7 against the Buccaneers, who sport one of the best defenses against the run.
Dion Dawkins has been impressive at times during his rookie season, but like White, Week 5 wasn’t one of them.
Dawkins earned a 42.4 from PFF. The rookie left tackle allowed two sacks and a QB hit.
