He will. KJ looks like he was mentored by Jaques Reeves. And yes Bong I know Calvin Johnson is a physical freak.

Now that should only be one of the techniques used by a CB to do his job. It should be used frequently, but there are cases where it isn't practical. I can't think of one off the top of my head, but I'm sure there is one.
Go look at these 4 plays - all in the second quarter.
The defenders were also in trail position.
None of them attempted to turn his head to look at the ball.
That includes D. Manning, Quin, and B. James (twice);


1-10-HST 33 (12:51) (Shotgun) D.Brees pass incomplete deep middle to J.Graham.
PENALTY on HST-B.James, Defensive Pass Interference, 22 yards, enforced at HST 33 - No Play.

1-10-HST 28 (7:19) (Shotgun) D.Brees pass incomplete deep right to J.Graham (D.Manning).
Manning played the same technique I mentioned and was able to defend the pass; even though it may have been Demps who was the one that knocked the ball out.

3-3-HST 21 (6:36) (Shotgun) D.Brees pass incomplete deep left to J.Graham (B.James) [M.Alexander].
On this one, James may have been a little early (and probably made contact with the TE before the ball arrived) but at any rate, he also played the same technique I mentioned and was able to defend the pass.

1-10-NO 23 (2:04) (Shotgun) D.Brees pass deep right to J.Graham pushed ob at HST 20 for 57 yards (D.Manning) [B.James].
Penalty on NO-J.Graham, Illegal Touch Pass, declined.
PENALTY on HST-T.Jamison, Personal Foul, 15 yards, enforced at NO 23 - No Play.
On this one, Quin wasn't able to defend the pass but he was right there (but missed the tackle - about 20 yards from the LOS.)

At the end of the day, they all played the same technique as Jackson when they were in the same trail position.
That is what they were taught to do.


On the other side of the ball, on one play the CB P Robinson was using his help inside. It's OK for him to try to locate the ball, he was ahead of AJ.
But he did it too early (before the receiver makes the break).
AJ got immediate seperation from him. Luckily for him, the safety made a good read and reacted quickly to come up and break up the pass.

3-12-NO 39 (10:26) (Shotgun) M.Schaub pass incomplete deep left to A.Johnson (M.Jenkins).

Default Re: The improbable improvement of Kareem Jackson

Kareem was in good position on the TD to Moore, but Brees made a perfect throw and that was a great catch as well. He was also just a hair late to break up the pass on the TD to Graham too and that wasn't his man but he saw the play and tried to jump the play. He will be fine we won't be facing a offense like the Saints all year.

That was supposed to be a deep out but Brees threw the ball a tad early and too short (due to pressure); even the receiver didn't expect the ball to be there.

All i know is that when I watched a coaching video, they prefer the ball to be throw between 35 to 40 yards on such a route.

It's understandable that Jackson looked much higher up in the air if he expected the ball to be thrown deeper (and thefore with a higher trajectory).
But since the ball was thrown short and low, it went below his eyesight.

You do understand that different coaches have different ideas on how things should be done right? You can't watch a couple coaching videos or go to a clinic and deduce how any given team wants to do things.

You are making excuses for Kareem instead of just plainly saying he didn't do a good job there feeling when the ball was coming and locating it.

The part about him expecting one thing and the qb and wr doing something else is hogwash. That's a part if football. This isn't practice. That's not Vance Joseph simulating a qb, and that's not Brice McCain simulating a wr. A football game is not a controlled environment.
Sometimes stuff is going to happen. All the routes and throws aren't going to be exactly where you expect them to be. Part of being a good ball player is reacting in the heat of the moment. If all the balls were thrown where he expected them to be then that would make his job super easy wouldn't it?

Kareem has seemed to have gotten even better on routes in front of him, but he still looks to be lacking when he has to turn his hips, run and defend passes down the field. There is no two ways around that. He needs to continue to improve there.

That's not ragging on him or anything. He's showed tremendous growth, but this is an area if his game that he needs to keep working on. Period.

Common sense would tell you that once you quit watching the receiver, you are at a disadvantage in regards to reacting to his movements. Common sense.

The greats in man coverage understand timing. They understand when to turn around and quit reacting to the receiver in order to locate the ball to make a play on it. They look for tells in regards to how long the play as lasted for, the receiver's eyes, his footwork, etc to determine when is best to turn and locate. That's the main difference between Kareem Jackson and the great man coverage corners in this league.

Some guys have it immediately, some guys take more time to develop it, some guys never do. I think Kareem has shown an ability to grow and learn in his short time here. I have confidence that he will get better at it. He will never be "one of the greats" in man coverage. Those are the types that understand it immediately. Take Revis or Aso for example.

Kareem is a great tackler and, as Rey said, is very good when the play is in front of him. He isn't going to let a receiver run a slant and break his tackle to go 25+ very often. He consistently makes that tackle and keeps it at 10 yards or less. That's very important in the NFL.

People that expect Kareem to be "one of the greats" just because he was a first rounder are unrealistic in their expectations. It's doubtful that he will ever be at that level.

There were only two complaints on him in this game.

1. On the incompletion to Henderson, he did turn his head.
Now people complain that he turned his head late.

2. On the TD pass to Moore, he played the exact same technique the other Texans defenders were playing. Why don't people go gripe about all those players. And actually, they should go yell at Vance Joseph and Wade Phillips for teaching the guys that technique.

wow was supposed to be, i love how u can get in the mind of everyone on every play and know what supposed to happen. Its not the fact of where he was looking its the fact of when he was looking. Lets not pretend this is the first time KJ hasnt been able to locate the ball. What about the TD he gave up where were his eyes then ? Looking right in the #s of the WR, and with pass interference.

I agree KJ has done much better SO FAR but come on excuses as to why he didnt locate the ball.......come on man.

i imagine the technique also says to locate the ball, and not just stare at the WRs numbers while hand fighting. Wade has even said he needs to locate the ball better. So that has nothing to do with technique !

I think we are in more agreement than you think. Kareem surely needs to improve in locating the ball on deep passes. As you said though, he has shown the ability to learn and grow. I think he has gotten better at it in his short time here. I think where we may disagree is in our confidence that he will be able to get better at it.

Brees is one of the best at that throw that he made to Lance Moore. It was a good test for him and he will learn from it. It is good that it happened to him in preseason so he can continue to work on it and use it as motivation.

Yeah, he looked pretty bad, but he's had two good games and one bad one. And Drew Brees can make any look bad. I'm not that worry because we aren't going against Drew Brees this season, and we couldn't generate any pass rush due to all the three steps drop backs. He definitely needs to get better at defending that tho, especially with Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers, and Tom Brady on the schedule this season.

In all honesty, EU, I would love for you to study the game of football more closely.

I'm learning all the time.

It's hard for me to try to seperate things for you because you just lump all of them together so that you can gripe whenever you please.

Let's revisit the two-man route I talked about last off-season.
You and quite a few folks insisted that it was all Jackson's fault.

Go back and look at the INT he made against the Falcons.
That was the classic two-man route.
The on-side receiver was R White who was covered by JJo.
He ran the deep post route.
(In 2010, this CB would be KJ).

The off-side receiver was Julio Jones who KJ covered.
He ran the crossing route.

Now where did the ball was thrown to?
R. White
And who made the play on the ball?
KJ

Without KJ, JJo would have been burned toast.

It was one of the plays I tried to explain to you in depth, but you never believed me.

Now that it has been proven that I was correct, I still don't see the nay-sayers gave me credit for it.

So, keep on "hating", EU, my fellow Texans fan!

I couldn't agree with this more. EU seems to just want to "be right" about Kareem and continues to bash him because it fits his original stance. He loves to gripe about KJ and continues to make comments that lack common sense.

I don't agree with everything that you say though 76. For example, Kareem isn't counting the yards in which he is running down the sideline and calculating when the Saints "usually" make that throw. It's not quite that technical, or not in my opinion. More likely, Kareem was just late in turning his head to locate the ball. He shows improvement on that play from his first or even early second year though. Back then he would have just pushed into the receiver to get a PI call. He's improving, it is just taking longer than the impatient fan would like it to.
