Here's a list of all the incredible interceptions he has made in the past 3 years:

In 2008, he picked off Tyler Thigpen for his first INT ever in the NFL. It was against the Kansas City Chiefs in week 3, but I can't seem to find the video for it.

In 2009, he finished the season with 6 INTs. (Should have been 7) He led the Falcons in picks that year.

Week 8

First pick of the 2009 season was from no other than Drew Brees! :D

Week 11

His second pick came from Eli Manning. I can't find the video for this one either.

Week 14

His (should have been) 3rd pick of the season came from... Yup, you guessed it. Drew Brees!

Video:

Week 15

Grimes picked Sanchez off twice in this game.

Here's the first one: http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-game-highlights/09000d5d8151b67b/Brent-Grimes-INT

Week 3

His first one this year was... Yeah. You guessed it right again. Drew Brees! :lol:

Week 12

Grimes almost had 2 INTS in this game, but he does picks off Freeman for the 3rd time :P

The could've been INT:

The INT that stood: http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-game-highlights/09000d5d81cab802/Grimes-INT

Week 15

he is turning into an all pro corner

very strange in todays NFL

there have always been guys whos heart out weigh their Size

but he is being called a shut down corner in some circles .....

you add his heart with his Athletic ability and you got an outstanding Corner

DRob had a pretty good game today aswell, did give up the slant and missed a tackle on the wr screen

but also had 2 key breakups and 2 big time stops

DRob will get his chances

ppl are gonna start looking away from Grimes, dude is just to much of a play maker at this time, almost every time you throw his way , bad things happen.....

DRob

get ready

more balls are about to start coming your way man......

Today my dad came over and watched his second Falcons game with me. He didn't watch any after Vick left. But we were watching the game, then the first Grimes INT happened and ge screamed " OH MY GOD!" just wa fascinated by Grimes and you better believe when it got over turned he was pissed, as was I, everyone knew that was a heck of a play by Brent.

Then the Bucs scored and he was like well I'm going to go home, and I said okay wait til kickoff, then Weems returned it. "OH MY GOD" lol he wasn't going anywhere. Then Grimes had another pick. Let's just say my dad's favorite players are Grimes and Ryan now lol.

Grimes is such an athletic and talented guy. Gives it his all. Has made some of the best plays I'd ever seen. I hope we keep him for a long time. He may get abused some times but he is so strong willed and bounces back. Plus he is Brees' arch nemisis now lol.

The irony is that of all the passes apparently thrown his way to avoid Robinson has given him lots and lots of practice to get better--and it shows!

Many CB's that are targeted continue to get exposed and are traded or released (Jimmy Williams) but Grimes has steadily improved. More than the interception, I think his best play was breaking up the fade in the end zone against the much taller WR. He played this perfectly!

I often wonder with his quickness--and toughness--if he would be a good punt returner?

No...He's good where he's at. Grimes get most of his deflections and INTs by combining his smarts and his abilities.

Grimes is great but I still can't believe his first int of Freeman was overturned all the offense had to do was run a quick play but it was likewe took our time man Brent should of had 2 picks

Yes, I was sitting there screaming "what are you doing, hike the ball, just clock it."

ADDED they need a system where the WR tell the QB to clock it or the booth tells the coach to clock it if there is the slightest chance a review will overturn the call. better to keep the ball and loose 1 down than to loose the ball entirely.
