Who's Going To Be Starting Opposite Fred Bennett?

Today's article in the Chronicle by Dale Robertson got me thinking. Actually, I've been thinking about this topic a lot since Dunta Robinson went down in November. Not that anyone can replace the guy who has been the heart and soul of the Texans defense since at least 2005, but someone has to start opposite Fred Bennett until Dunta gets back on the field (and that's assuming he even comes back at CB, which is a sizable assumption, given the nature of his injury). Come Pittsburgh, who's going to be starting at CB with Bennett?


It's clearly Jacques Reeves' job to lose. But given his history of looking like Petey Faggins on a bad day, I have considerable faith that he is eminently capable of doing just that. Antwaun Molden has impressed in camp, but he's a rookie, and he looked like a rook against New Orleans. It's probably asking too much for Molden to come in and start from Day One. Jamar Fletcher? Eh. I think I'd rather see Molden out there and deal with the lumps that would surely accompany him growing into the role.


Frankly, I really don't know what's going to happen. If I had to guess, I'd say that Reeves is your other starter at CB in Pittsburgh, but that Antwaun Molden displaces him around midseason. I know that's not exactly cause for celebration, but it could be worse, right? Right?
