Is Joe Haden one of the best cornerbacks? Right from ESPN they said,”BEREA, Ohio — Everything Joe Haden does on the field is tailored to one thing.
He wants to spark it, shape it, shake it.
For corners, there’s only one conversation.
“Everything I do is to be the best corner in the game,” said Haden, who matches up again with Cincinnati’s A.J. Green on Sunday in FirstEnergy Stadium.
The money — a five-year, $68 million extension signed in the offseason that includes $45 million guaranteed — says he’s close. Only Patrick Peterson has more in guarantees at $48 million. The common narrative — dominated by Richard Sherman, Peterson and Darrelle Revis — says he’s not. Haden’s name is rarely mentioned with those three.
Browns players and coaches say that needs to change.
“He’s as good as anybody in the league,” safety Jim Leonhard said. “I see it every day. He’s definitely in the conversation.”
The fact that Leonhard is saying this is significant because he played three seasons with Revis in New York, where Revis Island emerged. Revis would cover a top receiver with no safety help and let the other 10 players breathe. Haden anchors the same defense, run by former Jets coordinator Mike Pettine, and does so with the same tenacity, Leonhard said. The Browns mix and match coverages, but Haden will spend a bulk of the game on the best receiver, often in aggressive press-man coverage, with minimal or no help.
The numbers from Haden’s play since early November show he’s making a compelling argument for a spot among the greats.
When primarily matched up with Green, Vincent Jackson, Andre Johnson, Julio Jones andSammy Watkins in Weeks 9-13, Haden held those receivers to a collective average of 4.8 catches, 51.2 yards and 0.2 touchdowns per game.
Now Joe Haden didn’t get this good due to the simple fact he plays, and cause football is something you need to do and learn to be the best. He has to train and practice to be the best. For athletes al around they need to eat eel, or they are not gonna play the way they want to, due to the fact they got no energy or healthy balance. Why do you think as kids, our mothers always said” eat your breakfast before you leave”? Well Joe Haden does eat his breakfast before his games, thats what he needs to do, if not he wont be playing the way he wants to. And for a player to play good, they need self-confidence from not just their team, but the coaches. If they are also having a boast in their ego or confidence, they will most definitely play to their full potential. Now below it shows something about Joe Haden.
Jones was the only receiver to score during that span, and that touchdown came off a defensive team breakdown where Haden and safety Donte Whitner bit on a play-action fake, not qualifying as a true downfield coverage touchdown. Jones had five catches for 68 yards against the Browns and followed that up with 10 catches for 189 yards and a score against Peterson and the Cardinals a week later, a fact that’s not lost on Whitner when stumping for Haden. Jones “ate [Peterson] up,” Whitner said, but “not our guy.”
Deepening the intrigue for Sunday’s matchup is Haden’s handle on Green, who has seven catches for 81 yards in his last three meetings with Haden. That’s 27 yards a game. For context, Green averages 91 yards per game in his other 19 regular-season games going back to 2013.
Haden’s biggest struggle came Sunday against T.Y. Hilton, who scored two touchdowns and gained 151 yards in a 25-24 Colts win. But Haden actually played an impressive game, covering four different receivers and causing a fumble on a Hilton tackle. Fifty-one of Hilton’s yards came against other corners, and Hilton’s last-minute, 1-yard touchdown came off a broken rub play. The Colts were on the field for 48 offensive plays in the second half as the Browns’ offense sputtered.
The numbers from the first five receivers prompted defensive coordinator Jim O’Neil to call Haden “the best corner in football.” Apparently Pro Bowl voters think so, too as Haden is first in voting.
Bengals coach Marvin Lewis has seen a lot of Haden over the years. He admires Haden’s play, and doesn’t look forward to going against him.
“Great transition, great feet, great length; he plays fearless,” Lewis said. “I really thought those were the qualities he had coming out of Florida. I’m one of his biggest supporters here. I see him week in and week out.”
Haden started the season slow by his standards, with one pass deflection through his first five games. Pettine’s press-man scheme takes time to master. Plus, Haden was dealing with a hip injury that caused more pain than he let on.
Once the hip felt better, he started openly lobbying for more assignments in what he calls the “Revis defense.” He revels in the vulnerability, knowing there’s nothing but open grass behind him if he gets caught sleeping.
“I want that responsibility,” Haden said. “When I started getting more of that, I started to get more comfortable.”
The Browns mix and match coverages a lot, so sometimes a play designed for Haden covering the top receiver at the line of scrimmage can turn into something different, such as a shift to another receiver or a zone coverage.
Pettine knows Haden wants the top matchup every down and will get plenty of chances at it. The Browns also know Haden is versatile enough to move all over the line of scrimmage when necessary.
“To me, it’s been kind of a hallmark of our style of defense, our system, to have that type of corner that you can lock down one receiver or one side of the field and be able to kind of allocate resources coverage-wise elsewhere,” Pettine said. “To me, it’s high level.”
Haden agrees he’s “probably” playing the best football of his career, which validates the financial value the team placed on him in the offseason.
Is that enough to elevate Haden’s name into the top-corner discussion? Leonhard will say this: He sees a lot of Revis in Haden.
“There are very few guys that are asked to do what he’s asked to do,” Leonhard said. “Only the special ones can.”
