I am so impressed with Needham. I just can't get over that he is an undrafted free agent rookie who was actually cut by us before the season. Wrap that around your brain.

Body position. Smarts. The Dolphins trust Needham as their top cornerback at this time, the man most often to be left in a 1-on-1 coverage situation.

Wasn't Brent Grimes an undrafted afterthought once upon a time?

Another example of the coaching staff perhaps giving up too quick on a guy. A perennial problem in Miami. However, he has not faced a murderer’s row of QB’s this year and as someone pointed out, the Browns’ quality WR’s beat on him like a bass drum. I hope Howard can come back and earn his pay check next season.

He definitely needs to continue to improve. I joke a little about him being "Needham Island" based on some of his very outstanding plays, but he does get beat for someone to deserve the "island" next to their name. He gave up a TD last Sunday, but he was there for the pass and had decent coverage on it.
