Kareem Jackson is tough. He never shies from a collision. That's a valued quality for a CB. Anyway I hope he turns into a clutch player because he picked good years to suck. Nothing was happening those years anyway. And odds favor his career status rising because of success the Texans should have as long as Wade Phillips and Gary Kubiak are running the defense and offense.
not saying tackling is not important but I'd much rather corners keep the ball out of WRs hands.

Agreed. Trying to find sunshine wherever I can. Seems like his arc is in ascent which is apparently good enough for the coaches. Plenty of pressure and things can change, but for now he's earned his spot on the field.

Kareem played a nice game today. He made plays, and even turned his head on coverage of a deep ball to Shorts. No complaints today whatsoever.

Decent 1st week, very good 2nd week. Let's keep this trend going.

Default Re: The improbable improvement of Kareem Jackson

I never liked the word "improbable" in this thread title. It was always inevitable that he would get better. We still won't know how good he can get for like another 2 years. Problem was we started him as our #1 corner in his rookie year. Even most 1st round corners (which I know he is one) can't handle that.

Heck, J. Joseph is still improving some, not that he needs to.

Jackson probably played his best game as a pro today .... they didnt give Gabbert many openings today. 76 yards passing .... while playing with a lead all day long ?! Thats just sick.

For the most part, KJ was on Blackmon. Blackmon was glaringly cricket material today.

Like I said in the gameday thread, if he continues to perform at this level against Rodgers/Brady/Manning/Stafford etc... then I will take my serving of crow smothered in brown gravy. (Very Happily) Hopefully games against 2-3rd tier QB's will help get KJ's confidence up and he will play well against the top tier QB's.

That's not very fair. The elite QBs will make most DBs look horrible.

You've got a point, however, we're talking about Kj's play. Was he where he was supposed to be? Did he get beat? Burnt? Turned around? Did he make plays on the ball? Tackle? etc.. etc.. those things will give you an idea of how he's going to do when he faces Manning, Brees, Brady... which is really a team thing more than a Kj thing.

He covered some "decent" WR talent. No "known" names, but talented players all the same. We saw good things as well as bad. We see he's not making many of the same mistakes he made last year.

Most importantly, we're seeing a confident player gaining more confidence every week. I like that.

Gabbert had NO time to do anything, what was he like 7 of 19 for 58 yards are some B.S. They had 2 starters on the O-Line it's not like the camera evern went down field very much to even show the secondary, so how should i know if KJ got beat or was out of position. All i know is an elite QB and O-line will make/attempt those throws against him.

I'm not saying he played bad, just saying lets see how he does against a legit passing game.

Did you watch the whole game? There were several shots of Kj in coverage.

He broke in front of recievers on multiple plays .... He ran their routes better than they did.

Gabby is not a great qb, but some of those pressures and sacks were due to coverage. That Brooks reed almost safety was because gabby had nowhere to go with the ball...

Kareem Jackson is better. He is good to me. He was good in last years playoffs, and our biggest game so far this season he was good.
