Yeah, I got that feeling too. But, then I remembered something like this:

Once is a fluke, twice is a coincidence, thrice is confirmation.

He was in the right place, at the right time -- three times.

That said, I'm sure we'll get familiar with his shortcomings in the next few weeks -- as will opposing offenses.

I'm rooting for the guy though, he's one of the few players we have who plays with intensity.

Re: Goodbye Doughty, Hello Horton!

That is what i like about horton..a raw intensity, im sure that will lead to zealous plays where he lets a receiver go and is burned, the trick is to coach a player like him and make his intensity combine with experience and wisdom. Landry has played alot smarter this year, and im a big believer in jerry gray

Re: Goodbye Doughty, Hello Horton!

This thread is so silly. Horton got some balls that were tipped right to his hands. The worst NFL defensive back makes those plays.

I also like how humble the guy was. He said he was really nervous, but Landry said he went into the game saying "I got this." And he said himself that he was just in the right place. He has taken no more credit then that.

Being in position and around the ball is not all just luck.

If someone is constantly out of position and giving up big plays, would you just call him "unlucky"? Of course not.

I think Sean convinced God to send us Horton!!! He takes and he gives.

Agreed. If people want to call it luck, then Horton must have a horse shoe up his ass, because he was constantly "lucky" in preseason too.

At least he caught the balls. That's something our DB's have been lacking, Rogers and Smoot in particular. This guy has a nose for the football whether you think he was lucky or whatever, he has been doing this since our 1st exhibition game. Is that just luck or a pattern to good instincts?

I was thinking that same thing on both picks too... "WOW, WE CAUGHT THE BALL!"

Re: Goodbye Doughty, Hello Horton!

To confirm our player crush or whatever you call it, Yahoo sports had this to say:

Redskins rookie safety and 7th-round draft pick Chris Horton, who snagged two pivotal Drew Brees interceptions and also recovered a key fumble
Forget all the other stars, Horton was the difference maker in this game and should be defensive rookie of the week.

All I'm saying is his performance was not on the same level as a guy who jumped a few routes and made INTs that way. They were tipped balls, not really a good indication of his coverage skills. All in all I was happy with his performance, I would just like to see a bit more of him before I bench Doughty in his favor is all.

Re: Goodbye Doughty, Hello Horton!

Whoaaa! Let's hold off on the "Horton sent by Sean" and "Horton is the second coming of ST" talk.

He played well. By luck, instincts or some combination of the two, he was in the right place at the right time AND took advantage of the opportunities presented. I will wait to see about his coverage abilities and his ability to make open field tackles.

What is his straight line speed, anybody know?

Also, what was the knock on him coming out of college?

I hope he continues to improve and be more than a one week wonder. But, as with the rest of the team, I am holding off judgment till week 6 or so. If he's starting and making plays then, it my time to fire up the bandwagon for him.

Re: Goodbye Doughty, Hello Horton!

Has anyone mentioned the fact he perhaps blew his assignment on that safety blitz that left a wide open guy in the flats that went for a big completion?
