How Good Was Grimes, Anyway?

Since a lot of people are looking for the bright side, calling Grimes '1 of 3 great corners', citing his size, blah blah blah.. you should probably look at this:

Mike Clay@MikeClayNFL

Brent Grimes (17.2) ranked as the league's second best cornerback last season, according to @PFF. #1? Revis.

I'm not saying to jump off a cliff or anything.. but to those who know football, Grimes was elite. Unlikely that he'll ever play here again. Sucks.

He was not all that people. He had heart, but he got burned a lot, he also missed a lot of tackles and was man handled by the larger receivers in the league. I don't care if he was ranked #1 by @PFF, the team will be fine without him and may even be better.

Teams are always better when losing the 2nd best corner in the NFL! Yeah man, Robinson is so good. So is Owens. What a beast.

If some of you want to believe that the sky has fallen with the loss of Grimes, go ahead and jump ship before it is too late.

There's a difference between jumping ship and acknowledging how good Grimes was.

Wow, this is awful awful news.

I missed the tail-end of the game.

Did this happen on the last defensive series?

Worst part is, that might be the last time we see Grimes in a Falcons jersey.

It was hard to tell. They just sort of showed him on the sideline.

He could swat down balls and make some terrific athletic plays, but he was not physical and elite is not the word that came to mind when i saw him play. He was a "serviceable" corner to me.
