Whitner, Ginn remember Cleveland roots
49ers Donte Whitner and Ted Ginn are as close as brothers on and off the field
According to PPF he was one of the worse S this yr. Yes he can hit but he can't cover (see Super Bowl, Flacco picked on him all day). Wish the 9ers would have won though.
22 first downs/Tds 6th worse in NFL. Give me neg. rep all ya want doesn't change the fact

Tied with Eric Berry.
Take a look at the next chart; Whitner is not in the top 10 for first downs and touchdown %. Whitner may have given up a lot of first downs and touchdowns, but that's also partially a result of more opportunities. I would imagine that teams threw more than they ran against SF because of SF's good rush defense, so there's a greater opportunity for Whitner to get beat.
Doesn't mean he was good or bad in pass coverage. It just means that what you quoted isn't evidence of either.
Edit: I guess I mean proof. It is evidence of something but it isn't sufficient to prove anything.
Donte had a great season but an awful Super Bowl. Hopefully he bounces back from it....guy is everything you want in a player and teammate though.
