Saints' Greer shows lockdown ability

After watching the conference championship games, Scouts Inc. shares eight observations about the New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts:

1. Welcome to Greer Island: The Saints have extreme confidence in their cornerbacks, and rightfully so. He is seldom mentioned, but Jabari Greer really isn't much behind Darrelle Revis and Nnamdi Asomugha on the list of the best players at that position in this entire league.

Against Sidney Rice for much of Sunday's game, Greer held the star wideout to just 43 receiving yards. In turn, Bernard Berrian got more opportunities than usual. Berrian eclipsed 100 yards, but he isn't the wideout Minnesota wants its passing game going through. Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams likes to play a lot of man coverage and has the players to pull it off, especially Greer.
