Default Re: Kareem Jackson's plight.

The common theme in these 2-man pattern is that the play-side CB played it the same way (pretty much.)

They played to guard the sideline (the corner route, the back shoulder fade, the come-backer) ...

... every single one of them, from Aso to Rashean Mathis (Jags) to Hayden (Colts), to Newman (Cowboys), to V. Davis (Dolphins) to Jackson (Texans), among the plays I can remember.

And the result was a constant big play for the offense when the safety step down on the crossing route and the off-side CB doesn't take over the post.

When the off-side CB takes over the post, the situation reverses itself.
Jenkins (Cowboys), for example, had an INT.

For the Texans, Quin almost had a TD when he took over the post against Collins (Titans.)
Unfortunately, Nolan also read the play well and came off the crossing route trying to get back to help.
It was a good effort play by Nolan; however, he got into Quin's way and deflected the ball that the receiver ended up with.
It was just the Texans' luck.

I'll try to show that play soon!
