Yes Porter isn't anywhere near that level and did get burned last game, but as a whole Bailey + any average corner will most likely be a top 5 combo in the league because Bailey is still that good.
I wonder where Houstons corner duo ranks. I should know more about their other corners because that's a team in my division, but all I know is Joseph is a bad man.
The thing is, Porter isn't good, at all. Saints fans have been saying this for quite a while now. Ever since the Superbowl run he's been garbage and last night showed it. The Steelers gave will probably be his best game for the season because he'll resort to the typical below average corner he is. I can't even count how many times he got burned yesterday, it was comical to watch. I'd take Houston's duo pretty easily over the Broncos.
Johnathan Joseph > Champ Bailey and hell Kareem Jackson > Tracy Porter
Better cover corners and better tacklers as well.
