Default Remember when we all hated Kareem Jackson?

I was screwing around on the internet this morning at work and came across this hilarious piece of audio from 2010 that never gets old.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zNg9qDyViCc

It got me thinking about how terrible he used to be and how I wanted to personally pack his bags and send him out of town. I used to literally go and get a beer from the kitchen and hear on TV in the back ground the Texans give up a big play and I knew before I would even come back and see the replay that Jackson shat his pants on defense and 9 out of 10 times I was right.

Now though, I have to say, I love him back there with JJo and if this front 7 holds up, we should really be exciting on D imo.

I realize this is not a groundbreaking thread/post but A) I wanted to post that audio clip cause it is just funny and B) I haven't been in this main part of the board since last season so I'm unaware of how many, if any threads there have recently been about KJ.

I never hated him. From day one I saw the talent that got him drafted. I excused his play because I understood he was put in a bad situation. But from day 1, I knew he was a baller.

People with unrealistic expectations hated him. Corners don't step into this league ready to dominate normally. He was thrown into the mix with a bad defense and bad safeties. He was destined to fail early on.

Default Re: Remember when we all hated Kareem Jackson?

I don't know if I actually hated him as a player nor did I expect him to be Prime Time in season 1.....however.....he was terrible when not viewed through Battle Red glasses, that's just how it was. I hated him getting burned and starting from day 1 and at times yeah wanted to run him out on a rail but I am so glad we kept him.

Dude is a bad ass now.

Default Re: Remember when we all hated Kareem Jackson?

I had been wanting them to draft a first round corner for a while and was happy about it, even though we did get Joseph in FA. Never doubted that it had been time for that, but I can't say I never doubted Jackson himself. I expected bad play that first year, but geez...

Never wanted him gone. Knew he still had potential.

Still did remember, "...and Kareem Jackson will fall down." I used to end some of my posts with that.

Kareem was awful when he first got here. He was not that good his second season either when Jason Allen was taking some snaps from him.

Last year was his first complete season where he really showed his ability.

But really, even as a rookie Kareem was pretty good at plays that happened in front of him or withing the first 10-15 yards. It's when he had to flip his hips and run that he struggled. Long passes where not kind to him.

Last year though, he was 100% better at deep passes that he had been. His confidence just grew once he felt he could defend deep down the field.

Agreed Rey and I expect to see even more improvement again this season. From what we're hearing from camp KJ has honed his skills and technique even more and has taken another big step.

He still can't stop Octopus Hands Nuk but neither can JJo but he did shut down Megatron in the second half last season when he told Vance Joseph to "Let me chase him." I chuckle every time I think about that.

These were always my thoughts on Kareem. He was always good with short routes and could tackle pretty well. He just needed some experience in the NFL against deep routes. I was telling people to just wait for him to develop.

Never met the man, so I never hated him. I hated the way he played. I hated that the Texans drafted him in the first round when he clearly wasn't pro-ready, as they kept saying. Hated that they kept repeating that lie while other corners drafted contributed to their teams in better ways.

I'm glad he's finally turned into the player that the Texans insisted he was when they drafted him. His 2011 season should have been his rookie season. In 2010, he was not ready for prime time in any way, shape, or form.

We're going to win the Super Bowl this year. Looking back only makes it harder.

I hated on him and publicly praised both KJ and 76Texan for their beliefs in KJ. As of right now, he has it to do again. One good year doesn't make a great player. I hope he picks up where he left off and QB's simply have nowhere to the throw the ball.

Still not on board with KJ. Obviously better each year. Still doesn't look for ball enough. Still seems to chase a lot. We will see. I hope I am wrong.

Don't remember specifically how he did against GB and the Pats.

If you don't remember, it's a good sign for a DB.
