Post Miami's defense a much better fit for CB Cortland Finnegan.
I really hope so, but there has also been a lot of good reports on 2nd year CB Jamar Taylor looking much improved this year after battling injuries in his rookie season. I see a better group of cornerbacks that should hopefully stop giving up 3rd and longs this year.

Cornerback Cortland Finnegan, trying to rebound from two disappointing seasons, looked good this offseason before sitting out last week to rest his knees.

One NFC front office executive said Finnegan has a good chance to rejuvenate his career here partly because he wasn't properly used by former Rams defensive coordinator Tim Walton, the ex-UM coordinator who was fired by the Rams after last season.

When I asked Finnegan about that last week, he said Walton’s defensive system was “atrocious. From the game plan to technique to fundamentals, they weren’t in line with a defensive coordinator who knew what he was doing. He was a great defensive backs coach, but when you're in over your head, it's kind of tough... Here coaches know to play guys to their strengths. I wish I had been here a long time ago. [Coordinator Kevin] Coyle is so good at dissecting offenses.”

After two disappointing seasons, does Finnegan, at 30, still have the same skill set he showed as a Pro Bowler for Tennessee six years ago? “It’s still there,” he said. “But until I prove it, we’ll never know.”

Yeah, really. Are we still asking an athletic QB to not run out of the pocket?

Kinda fishy how he was a stud in Tennessee and then his career went down in St. Louis.
