We mentioned that at the time, when they were talking about shuffling technique & what not.
But it's rare for a rookie Corner to come into this league & set the world on fire, especially since the rules nowadays favor the WR. Some guys have done it, McCourty had a great rookie season.
But you start a rookie corner on a bad nfl defense & you're just asking for trouble.
I thought it was coach-speak when Kubiak would comment on Kareem's confidence, that he had a short memory & wasn't letting all the bad stuff & negative talk affect him. But watching him play now, with confidence, I don't think it was coach-speak at all. He's got to have it together between the ears, to play the way he's playing now.
