Just watched him jump two routes and get two INT's that have been huge for the Eagles. Not only can he blanket the opposing teams best WR, but can can catch...yes...catch the ball. ..something we haven't seen in a CB do around here for a very long time.

Yes, I would LOVE a CB like Asante Samuel also... The CB's are a weak part of our D.

A lot of people here are gonna think I am crazy, but Joe Burnett is very much like Assante Samuel. Both are guys with not a lot of deep speed, but instead quickness in change of direction and ball skills. The problem is that Philly plays a lot more cover-2 and we use our SS at the LOS a lot more.

Joe Burnett is a guy that will make a lot of plays on the ball, if he has deep help. Watch for it in the next couple years.
