Another assumption. You have no idea what a defensive coordinator as his players to do.
Safety could double up or than can be asked to key on a rb if the coordinator is protecting against a screen.
My point is that there could be any number of reasons where Jackson has to cover one on one. If you want to argue that be was expecting help and it threw him off a bit then I can respect that.
But I don't see how he is not aware of whether or not a db is missing from the field pre snap. It's possible.
