Post Saints' Ken Crawley had to stop panicking before he could succeed

By Nick Underhill -- Advocate

There was never an issue with Ken Crawley’s ability to cover players last year.

The New Orleans Saints cornerback, then a rookie, could stay in phase with most wide receivers and shadow them as well as anyone. His issues often came at the top of routes when the ball was coming in. Instead of trusting his instincts, locating the ball and making a play, he’d often start to panic and give up a reception on an otherwise well-covered route.

There were a few examples of this from last season, with the most damaging probably coming in Week 2 against the New York Giants when he let what looked like a game-sealing interception turn into a game-winning touchdown. But through two games this season, it looks like Crawley has solved the issue.

“I think he’s done a better job of finishing plays," secondary coach Aaron Glenn said. "You saw it in training camp last year, he was finishing some plays last year, but he never got a chance to do it in games. I think he understands how to do it in games, and how to put himself in position to finish those plays in games. That’s been a huge deal for him coming into this year. He worked his butt off on it this offseason.”
