76Texan has two threads with plenty of visual evidence showing that Kareem was bad, but not as bad as the fans think he is. The piss poor defense (that he was a part of) helped him look worse than he actually was.
He's solid in zone recognition.
He's solid shedding blocks.
He's solid in tackling.
He is fast enough, tall enough, and strong enough.
If he had half the help he should have, his season would have been mediocre, understandable, not bad considering.
If our intentions were to make him a number 1 CB I would still be worried. But as a possible #2, I'm not worried.
