KJac is being scape goated here.... He was bad.... but no worse than you should expect from a rookie corner. He was not the worse corner we had last year..... one of the two best.. I think so.
He most definitely wasn't the biggest problem in our secondary. & he isn't our biggest liability in pass defense.
Dunta did play better k jax was not one of the better DBS last year and he is not being scapegoated because he still has a job.
Pollard was scapegoated. Not kj.
I don't ever recall a corner getting all twisted up at the Los and roasted for a long td the way Roy williams did him.
He actually had me missing reeves. Atleast he uses to be in playmaking distance. Dunta was not good, but dammit I missed him too.
Kj had me missing almost every scrub corner we've ever trotted out there.
He was not good and I'm not sure how you guys can't see that. Pulling up a few plays out of the hundreds he played is not evidence. Pulling up a couple of plays from aso is not evidence. It's a mere sample. I looked at them and you can't really tell much from still shots.
You can't really see what the technique looks like which is most of the battle. You can't see quickness in and out of cuts. You can't see how fluid the backpedal is or what they look like when they turn their hips.
I think you guys are the ones over simplifying things.
Using a small sample size and then declaring that because the safety wasn't where he needed to be kj looked bad.
We don't Where the safety needed to be. And we don't know how the coaches had the secondary playing.
There is a such thing as a corner being in one on one coverage with one or both of the safeties being in a middle zone. Just because you think it should be cover two doesn't mean it is.
I saw enough last year to come to two conclusions. He has talent, he had an awful first year. That's it. Breaking down particular plays is not something I'm going to do. I saw enough bad things all on my own watching the games last year, and none of the bad things were due to him not having help.
At times he was put in a bad position, but the coaches thought they had a number one corner which is all their fault.
