Post Favre has compliments for Vontae
Quote:
“Number 21, I felt like, was one of the best corners in this league, especially that no one knows about,” Favre said after Miami’s 14-10 win. “Number 32 (Allen) is more physical and kind of a safety-type guy. I thought a back-shoulder throw against him with Bernard would be a right play. But just in general, 21 was less apt to challenge.”


Davis, obviously, is not a no-name player, especially in Miami. He was the Dolphins’ first-round draft pick last year, with four interceptions and a touchdown as a rookie.

But he’s not exactly a household name yet, either. And only in his second season, Davis knows he still has much to prove. When Davis caught wind of Favre’s comments Sunday night, he was pretty blown away.

“Wow Brett Favre thinks I’m one of the best corners in this league that nobody knows about,” Davis wrote on his Twitter account shortly after the Dolphins landed in South Florida. “Truly a compliment coming from him. Thank u Brett.”

:yay:

I really like Vontae's attitude and competitiveness. Nothing gets this guy down and he is slowly making a name for himself in the NFL.

I said in the preseason that Vontae looks like he's ready to take the next step to shutdown corner. That is exactly what he's been the last two weeks.

Well given all the bad vibes surrounding our FO's draft picks and FA busts, its nice to see some panning out rather well

I guess they do kinda know what they are doing after all....

Those are beautiful words to read about a member of the Dolphin secondary.

Classy comments from Favre though. I think he knows #21 by name now though especially after the Vikings watched the game film.

Not every pick works out and they haven't been shy about cutting ties with the ones who haven't worked out. But there have been more than a couple of very solid picks each year.

The only pick I've REALLY questioned from the triumverate was the Pat White pick. He just didn't seem to fit the mould of what they have been trying to put together. (Other regimes have made a LOT of questionable pics in recent years)

Merling, White, and Turner seem to be the biggest misses they have had here in Miami (in the draft). Long, Henne, Davis, Hartline, and Smith (we'll see), are looking pretty good. I also think Odrick is going to be pretty solid. Jerry might be pretty good, and Langford seems to be progressing well. All and all, they have hit on more than they have whiffed on I think.
