No picks, no problem for Dunta Robinson

Question of the Day

Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

“It’s easy to see what our front office knew when we went out and got Dunta,” Grimes said. “He plays hard. He prepares hard, and you value his understanding of the game and what to expect or what you might see with a certain receiver or a certain type of offense. He’s definitely been an asset to our team and our secondary.”

Robinson made headlines two months ago after his collision with receiver DeSean Jackson resulted in a concussion for both players. The NFL ruled the hit too aggressive and fined Robinson $50,000.

Robinson insists he’s not a dirty player. What concerns him is beating the Saints on Monday night. A victory would ensure the Falcons an NFC South title and a No. 1 playoff seed.

Robinson heard trash talk from New Orleans after Atlanta beat the Super Bowl champions three months ago in the Louisiana Superdome.

“I don’t think we snuck away with a win,” he said. “I think at that point in time the better team won the football game that day.”

And Robinson can’t wait for quarterback Drew Brees to test him again.

“I think one of the big reasons is that Grimes has been playing so well,” Robinson said. “It’s good to have a guy on the other side of you that’s going to force other teams to throw the ball back your way. I expect the same thing Monday night.”
