The Bye will help him and Geno a lot imo


It definitely will help Geno as he gets Holmes, Cumberland, and Winslow back after the bye.

Dee just has to get used to the speed of the game and gain some confidence. The reason Rex was saying how Milliner will be good and how he played good yesterday is because hes trying to build his confidence. Rex seems to know which players need to be praised to build their confidence and which need a fire lit under them. When he addresses a player, it's calculated IMO.

Missing training camp and all of the spring hurt him.

I totally agree, we saw this with Sanchez. Even though Sanchez should not have needed that being a QB in NY but I think Rex knows what he is doing.

Well all I know is Rex came out and backed Milliner and he easily played his best game besides being burn by Toon that one play. He also was close to his first interception on the crazy catch by Meachem.

O yeah, totally forgot about that. He's gonna come along, I have faith in him. Labeling him a bust is just unwarranted at this point in his career. Revis wasn't Revis when he first entered the league. Corner back is a very tough adjustment coming from college to the pros.

I do agree that it's way too early to label him a bust, especially given how difficult a transition is for corners (especially when you miss all of training camp), but it has been hard not to really complain about his play this year. Then again, after a few years of the Revis-Cromartie combo we Jets fans have been pretty spoiled with good CB play.

So, apparently an adjustment period is fairly common with Saban-coached Alabama corners? Because he doesn't teach corners to backpedal. Instead teaches a shuffle technique.

His corners spend the majority of time pressing receivers at the line anyway though, so I guess it's unfair to put it all on that. However, Milliner still has missed most of OTAs and training camp, and has been on and off the field due to an injury. Got to give this guy time. Not everyone is Darrelle Revis.
