Go back and look at the tape and find the instances of pure speed rather than bad judgment being the cause--they are few and far between. Coleman gambles and/or get's distracted at time--the former leads to INT's as well but both contribute to giving up plays. His speed is sufficient especially in the age of "who cares if he runs a 4.6 or 4.7 40 he is a great WR." All that said, Coleman has the potential to be a great, ball-hawking FS which in our division could be huge.
I am sure Coleman was expecting safety help when that Titans play happened. I think he is disciplined enough to know not to jump a route when there is no safety help. As for this year, I expect a steller year from him. I am more concerned about Glenn though I hope he holds up this year.
