Right.
There's no way you can look at his rookie year and say that he was good. He had potential, just like every other player drafted, but he was terrible that year no matter how you slice it. He fell down regularly, which is just something you can't do in the secondary. I don't care who your coach is, falling down is inexcusable and it should have been fixed well before Wade Phillips got here.

It's just like the Chris Myers deal where he was awful his first year, he had potential for sure, but it's not like he was some diamond in the rough. They were both needed a lot of refinement to their game, before they could be considered really good at their position. It appears KJax is finally getting to his potential, and I hope he continues to improve even more.
