Why doesn't Powers get the respect of Cardinals fans ?
Powers hasn't been an overwhelming offseason move such as Abraham, Dansby and Carson. After watching him this season, I'd say he's pretty average as a cover corner but he brings more than that to the table which has earned my respect.
He's been one of our most consistent players week in and week out playing solidly on the back end. While he will give up some catches; he makes sure tackles and doesn't give up the big play. His most impressive talent this year though is that he is a stud against the run as a corner and a big reason why the defense doesn't get gashed outside the tackles.
Besides his competent coverage skills, consistency and excellent play against the run; Powers has proven to be an excellent leader. Powers has earned this Cardinals fans respect this season as a complete corner.
What do you think of Powers performance this season after passing on Toler in the offseason ?
