I'll tell you what, watch the game and see how many drives get extended with Routt penalties. Watch how many times he gets beat on 3rd and 5's on 3rd downs. Watch how many times running backs run out of his arm tackles. You got stats, i got my eyes, my eyes tell me he is one of the worst starting players in the league. I call him Oregon St Routt...he don't deserve Stanford as his name
The stats argument is only sound when you're talking about generic stats like rushing yards and passing yards. A Burn Percentage is strictly on the player. Routt was at the top of the list last season and is at the top of the list this season.
He does get penalties, but what do you expect from a team that uses strict man to man coverage?
Routt is one of the best corners in the league.
