I wouldn't go so far as to call KJ a shutdown corner, but he could be a #1 on a couple of teams.

KJ is much improved, and playing well, but I wouldn't say he's a shutdown corner.

Definitely not a shutdown corner, but if Kareem can continue to improve at the rate he has been, then he'll eventually become one of the better #2s in the league.

Meh, it's a overblown label. Believe it or not, even "shutdown corners" get beat on occasion.. Replace "Shutdown corner" with "Probowl corner" and there's still only a handful in the league.

1 pick 6 TD does not make him a shutdown CB. He did pretty good today and has had a damn good season, still a solid #2 at best IMO.

Do you watch a lot of espn?

Just asking because there are a bunch of low key players all over the league that don't get the wide spread respect that they deserve.

Grimes (injured) has played better that both Aso and Samuels.

Matter of fact Kareem and Joseph both have too.

Do not forget Peterson for the Cards. Peterson has been as good as any DB in the NFL so far.

Aso has really regressed since become a Eagle.

Honestly, no I don't.
It was JMO. When I think of "shut down corners" those are the types of CBs that I think of. Week in and week out...season in and season out, they get the job done. I'm not talking about stats after 1/4 of the way thru the season. We all know that the reason the DBs have done as well as they have this season is due mainly to the presure that the front 7 are putting on opposing QBs. Causing QBs (even good ones) to hurry will cause mistakes and if your DBs are anywhere close to being in good position, they're gonna look like playmakers. Not trying to disrespect our DBs necessarily, but I'm certainly not ready to label the likes of a KAREEM JACKSON as a "shutdown corner" because he's had a few good games.

If we're only talking "stats," then Chris Johnson is a better RB than Arian Foster.

Kareem Jackson is dramatically improved as a player. I'll go out on a limb and say that he is better than Petey Faggins ever was, probably better than Dunta Robinson is now.

Kareem doesn't have the make-up speed to be in the top tier. But he does have the potential to be very good. Right now, he's playing above average, and he's on a good upward trend.

Say what you want, but Kareem has come a long, long way....

Three picks this year...one returned for TD...

Kareem could be a pro bowler or at the very least borderline pro bowler by years end.

Remember a week or two back there was some talk that J. Jo wouldn't play because of a grin thingie...? Remember he sat out practice for a day or two because of it. I think he's trying to play thru it and it's lowering his effectiveness.

I remember McClain saying that Kareem will never be a good pro-bowl corner. He just doesn't have the physical tools necessary.

That was the worst game I've seen JoJo play. I'm hoping it was because he was injured. He has enough history of playing well that I'm hopeful.
