Quarterbacks are targeting Brent Grimes this season, and the Falcons' third-year corner will likely see plenty of action the rest of the way as teams look to avoid throwing the ball toward Dunta Robinson. Receivers have won a good share of battles against Grimes, who lacks great size, but he's also capable of making a big play if a quarterback forces a pass in his direction. He has three interceptions, including two in the last two games, and led the team with six picks last season. Atlanta has other players with starting experience at corner, but head coach Mike Smith has said that Grimes is playing well and there are no indications that his job is in any danger. It was expected that Robinson's arrival in the offseason would boost the Falcons' pass defense. It's giving up a lot of yards and touchdowns, though, and still appears to be one of the team's weaknesses.
