Default Re: The improbable improvement of Kareem Jackson

i think jackson's right on schedule. he got abused his first season, but that's hard to blame kareem for. terrible coaching, no pass rush, and an asinine scheme set him up to fail. and let's not forget that despite being essentially a senior in college he was one of the old guys in the secondary and the top guy his rookie year. the kid didnt stand a chance.

last year was essentially a "do over" of his rookie year with real coaching and a great scheme, and he's steadily and noticeably improving. i expect by the end of this season he goes from an average starter to a strong #2 cb and would even make several rosters as a #1. he's built so well for wade's defense that he's just going to get better and better.

Never saw ball twice on first two drives. He's going back to old habits.

Yep, the head isn't coming around...at all. Slight push off by the WR on the TD, but he probably didn't need it.

We are being lied to. Kareem was a first round bust and the Texans refuse to admit it.

Yo, Coach----please cut your losses.

You guys are unbelievable. One day it's "he sucks," next day "he's very good." I guess we are back to "he sucks."

He will improve with good coaching. He is still going through that process.

That's been his big weakness. He's improved in regards to sticking with guys down field. Now he just needs to locate.

Put him in a position in which everything is in front of him and he is very good though.

It's not that cut and dry. His strengths right now are more suitable for zone. He just needs to work on locating the ball and positioning down field and he will improve in man. He has already improved drastically in that area. He is a work in progress, just like all NFL players.

Kareem Jackson is going to be fine.

Being good at playing the ball in the air is usually something you are good at or you just aren't.

I'm hoping Kareem will get better in this aspect, but I'm not holding my breath.

I wouldn't say his problem is playing the ball in the air. His problem is timing his turnaround. He can play it when he sees it. It's a pretty common problem corners have.

I fully expect everyone to fry him though as they always have. When he puts it all together, they'll shut up as usual.

That's part of playing the ball in the air. And I disagree with your assessment anyways. Kareem lacks a few skills that would aide him in down field coverage.

And no one has fried him in here. Pointing out errors and mistakes is what people do on message boards.

Not since this season has started, outside of one or two posters. But it will come, trust me on that.

And you are trying to argue semantics. "Playing the ball in the air" to me means how you adjust when you locate the ball with your eyes. Locating the ball with your eyes is different IMO.

I have to say, I'm very disappointed that Harris was a 2nd round pick and isn't pushing Jackson, or really anyone else, for that matter.

I still don't believe we can say that yet. WAtch the guy, he's very talented. Stupid, but talented. He struggled today. No denying that. It's the coaches job to figure out why & fix it.

To me it's like buying a car, sometimes the car you get doesn't perform exactly the way you e pecked it to. Unless you're rich, you're usually stuck with it until a better opt ok n comes along. That's where we are now. We've done spent our wad on a secondary, high dollar FAs (x2) & a first round pick.

I don't think anyone is trying to pull the wool over our eyes, just trying to do the best with what we've got. We get JJ Watt & Cushing back, Kareem will be a small problem again.

This is his first training camp. Brice is one of the best nickle backs in the league. Fans need to adjust their expectation for draft picks now, because the texans are now talented enough to draft players at positions that there will be a need in future years and maybe not an impact player their first years.

Brice-Harris
Myers-Ben Jones
Antonio Smith-Crick
Eric Winston-Newton
Caldwell-Brooks

High quality potential replacement for a lot of positions.
