cmon Bob this stat has nothing to do or say about Maxwells play!!! great reporting thanks MORE


One of the big questions for Monday’s Seattle-New Orleans game is how well third-year player Byron Maxwell can replace suspended cornerback Walter Thurmond.

According to Pro Football Focus, Thurmond has given up just 0.82 yards per cover snap this year, eighth best in the NFL, and a number that beats the 0.94 that Richard Sherman has given up. Quarterbacks have a 66.6 passer rating when throwing at Thurmond and 67.0 at Sherman.
