Kris Brown made tackles twice in one game on the Jacksonville returner AFTER that guy had gotten by the other ten Texans. Was their returner sloowwwwww?--no, Brown took the correct angle.
Frankly the take it to the house potential (something done only by 9 kr's last year on well over 1000 kr's) is virtually irrelevant. It just doesn't happen enough to care about. Field position and not putting the ball on the ground are things than affect each and every game. JJ routinely makes guys far faster than his slowwww self miss to get good field position. By the way, I am sure the guys JJ has beat for 70 yds, 60 yds, 53 yds, 41 yds, etc. on returns would not agree with your assessment that he is slowwww.
