I will say this. To further illustrate how great that stop was, I was screaming "noooooooo" because I thought DeMario's blast tackle was going to push him forward enough for the drive to continue. Lattimore held strong.
Exactly this. That was some kind of "breaking the rules of physics" ish going on with that tackle

Lattimore is a top corner, at times, but he loses focus or something. Sometimes it looks as if he's not 100% into a game. Maybe lack of film study or he's just guessing. I know this much, he has Mike Evans' number. But why can he shut down one of the better WRs in the game, then look completely awful against a 2nd string guy?
I can say for sure Lattimore is at his best playing man to man with a decent safety watching the deep ball. But we have Marcus Williams so I guess that's not an option.

Interesting stat but Marlon Humphrey , who just received that big contract has allowed 26 receptions for 286 yards 1 td.
Stephon Gilmore has allowed 18 receptions for 261 yards 2 tds. Not disregarding Lattimores bad play. Hopefully after the by week the secondary fixes their communication issues.

But four of those receptions and 92 of those yards and one TD came from Gilmore trying to defend DK Metcalf, who is currently ripping up the league with the likes of DeAndre Hopkins and Stefon Diggs.

Alright. Sounds like the thread needs some order here.

Put 'em in a hat, close your eyes and pick a name. The three best corners in Saints history are McKenzie, Greer and Lattimore. Not HOF'ers by any stretch, but far better than anyone else at the position in the previous nearly-40 years. We had much better safeties than corners back during the bad ol' days.

As for effort, didn't we all read a post on here a few weeks ago by someone claiming to know a player that said overall effort this season league-wide isn't exactly stellar because of the virus, the uncertainty of whether they'd play at all, no training camp, etc.? I can see it each week. There's no defense being played by anybody. Everything's a shootout. It's a hundred-yard version of the Arena League this season.
