Who has laid blame solely on anyone?
The safeties aren't even here anymore.
I've yet to see anyone defend the safeties and say kjax made them look worse than what they were. Even though if you think about it logically that was probably the case.
Wilson wasnt a world beater but he looked a lot better when dunta, reeves, and Quinn were at corner. Pollard had a very good season the year before.
Funny how they both fell off and looked like shit when the kiddie corners took the field.
Last year though, it was a collective effort of suckiness from all parties involved.
The safeties weren't good enough to mask the cb's deficiencies and the corners weren't good enough to mask the safeties miscues.
It's a two way street back there in coverage. Sometimes one or the other will mess up. Sometimes both. But the question is do you have enough talent back there to balance things out.
We did not. The coaching was poor, the safeties were poor and yes despite the many cries to the contrary in this thread Kareem Jackson was poor.
Pointing out someone elses mistake is not evidence that Jackson actually played well. All that means is that he us not talented enough to cover up others mistakes.
Also, this two receiver route you guys are talking about is not impossible to cover. Harder? Maybe. "impossible to cover". . . No.
