Another Dunta Thread

So...from everything I've seen posted on here, most of us have some lingering doubts of some sort about Dunta Robinson. Was he worth the money? Is he going to be healthy? Will he be a significant upgrade?

I'm here to tell you...I don't have the answers.

But, what if he has a pick 6 against the Steelers next week? For me, at least, it will take just one big play from him next week to erase any of the doubts I have.

Anyone else feel the same?

I don't like Dunta Robinson, but his pickup isn't going to be the deal that makes or breaks the Falcons.

If he plays, I think he will be solid, but we all know the Falcons have a several promising young guys at CB.

As is usually the case, the effectiveness of the pass rush will be much more crucial this year for the Falcons.

Was a bit skeptical about the acquition, maybe out of ignorance, all because I've never

seen him play, (AND STILL HAVEN'T SEEN HIM PLAY 1 SNAP THRU 4 PS GAMES). From what

I've read, rookie season aside, he has been avg at best. Is he an upgrade over CH-23?,

sure, but is that saying much?. Not to sound like a conspiracy theorist, but I Believe

there's something going on that we aren't being told about with regards to his health.

Personally, I'm quite satisfied with Owens/Grimes.

I heard Coach Smith say a couple days ago that Dunta has been practicing at FULL SPEED for the last 10 days.

Yeah, I would have liked to seen him play in a PS game or two, but I guess we will have to wait till next Sunday now.

Ok, so it doesn't really bother me, but it is wierd to me that somebody can practice at full speed but not be healthy enough to get a few plays in a live game.

I don't like him as a person. I think he is very immature and arrogant. I think he is a decent football player.

****... do you know the manas a person ?

All this because the man said he probably could have made money elsewhere.... Michael Turner said the same thing when we drafted him.....

Have you ever met and hung out with him. There is no way you can judge a person that hasn't been a locker room problem or in the news for something dumb. The only thing you know is he wanted a raise last year and he did a few things out of character. Other than that what has he done.

I love Dunta's swag... Its that good swag.... not that selfish swag D-Fall had.

I think it has more to do with the fact that he is our prized FA, and we don't want to risk any severe injury with that hammy in the PS.

I mean, we've been VERY slow with any kind of injury this year. After Smith regretting putting Michael Turner out there so quickly after his ankle injury, he doesn't wanna make that mistake twice.

Sorry to interrupt things, but I have to respond to this. The man reeks of me, me, me,

as evidenced by his little "Pay me Rick" inscription on his cleats. That's all

I need to know about him, Meangelo version 2. Could I be

wrong? Geez, I sure hope so. I just never had a warm and

fuzzy about him.

No, not because of that. I don't want to rip on the guy, but if you are going to force me to explain myself, I will.

Dunta Robinson suffered a devastating knee injury in 2007. When he came back in the middle of 2008, he was, as expected, an average player. After the season, the Texans franchised him, guaranteeing him 11 million dollars for a single year of football.

Dunta wanted a long term deal, so the Texans offered him a long term deal with 22 mil guaranteed. Dunta didn't like the deal, and held out of camp. Dunta told the Texans that he would come to camp if the Texans promised not to franchise him again in 2010, which was silly because the franchise money was insane, but the Texans offered him no such promise, and told him it would not be forthcoming.

So Dunta held out all of camp, with nothing being accomplished except hurting his team and himself.

When he finally showed up, he painted "Pay Me Rick" on his shoes in an attempt to embarrass the GM of the franchise. Then after the game when he was asked about it, he said "I did it to remind myslef of why we play this game, to get paid."

The he went out and didn't make a single play all season, but he did finish at the top of the league in pass interference penalties. The decision not to franchise him again, was therefore made quite easy for them.

Ironically, at the end of the year, Dunta went to the Texans and told him that he was OK being franchised again.

HA!

Then the guy gets here, pulls his hamstring after 1 week of camp, but runs his mouth about his ability non stop. When Peterson says he is the kind of guy who can take away the side of the field, Dunta says "That's the kind of guy I am. I can do that. I've done that."

The he starts yapping about how he is not a "shutdown corner", but he is a playmaker. Well he is right that he is not a shutdown corner, but why was he talking about how he can take half of the field away?

The last time this guy had more than 2 picks in a season was 2004, his rookie season, so he's not like any "playmaker" I've ever seen.

The he makes the comment about "how he could have gotten more money somewhere else". That just made me want to puke.

The guy should strap it up and shut it up. That's my opinion. I didn't want to share it again but now you know.

When ever ive seen Dunta during the games... He is talking to the young DB's or cheering on the Defense.

Ive talk to Texans fans... They said the guy team mates love him and it seem the sameway here... The talk about the Defense as a whole everytime he speaks.

I want a DB confident and swagged out... I dont want him over confident like D-Hall was tho.

I dont see it the way you guys see it (as of now) .

That's all good. Believe me, I wish him well - Cause if he has a good season, it

only helps us right?. Sorry, but I have to be honest and say I got a bad feeling about

him. Grimes/Owens for me

Peyton, I love ya brother, but I hope you are dead wrong. I know he is a huge upgrade over Houston. I really don't think they would have brought him to ATL if he was a bad apple.

The good news is that whether I am right or wrong, I think it has little to do with the Falcons success or lack of it this year. I think the biggest factor for the defense is going to be the pass rush. If the Falcons have it, the defense is going to be good.

Good summary! The kid could certainly use a good dose of humility IMO.

if you need dunta to get a pick six in week one to change your mind than i hate to be the one to break it to you but you will be disappointed. he doesn't need to make a whole lot of interceptions or huge plays this year for us to be a better defense...he just needs to use his coverage skills and take away a part of the field and let our defense be more aggressive

Dunta was a good corner, if he is completely healed, he can be that again. The games I saw him play even after the injury, he plays the ball well. He also will come up and hit. I really like the idea of having Dunta and Owens as the starters because they both will come up and hit. That will make our defense that much better. One thing he has done already is bring swagger to our defensive backs. The guy is motivated to play in his home state, I expect him to have a really good season for the us.
