I'm honestly happy for him, even if he wasn't a Texan it's still awesome to see a guy come from being where he was to where he is now. The fact that I watched every game and experienced the frustration to now being excited to see him play really puts the icing on the cake.

He and Manning got the #1 spot on 21st and Prime this week.

I know many don't like him, but I love me some PrimeTime.

It is so refreshing to have 4 DBs you can trust.

Default Re: The improbable improvement of Kareem Jackson

KJ had his best game as a pro yesterday. His first year he was flat out awful....like cut the guy awful. Yesterday he looked like a #1 corner out there.

Last year he showed marked improvement, and he has taken another step this year. He had some issues in Denver but all in all, he has now moved to a very solid #2 corner and the good news is I think he has room for improvement still to come. Meaning he has a chance to be one of the top #2 corners in the game if he continues to work hard.

It's all just a LOT better technique which I credit to much better coaching with Joseph and a much better scheme...along with a better pass rush. He is doing so much better in the intermediate area, and he was very good last year short, so now he needs to get better at the longer pass plays. He still gets burned deep too much probably because his speed is just average overall and he doesn't have the make-up speed of the top guys, but if he can continue to improve in his recognition skills and technique he can make up for lack of deep speed and if he can do that the sky's the limit.

I don't ever think it was about talent. I think he's got it in spades. It's always been about recognition & confidence, trusting what your eyes see.... that kind of thing.

He's looked more & more confident this year & I think it's just a matter of time.

There are some good corners out there, especially in the AFC, but....


I wouldn't be surprised if we send two corners to the Pro Bowl. If not this year, then next.

What I like about Prime, is that he's natural & real. Some of these guys get the job because someone "thinks" they're funny then they spend years, "trying" to say something funny.

Like Shannon Sharpe.... or Keyshawn Johnson...

Right.
There's no way you can look at his rookie year and say that he was good. He had potential, just like every other player drafted, but he was terrible that year no matter how you slice it. He fell down regularly, which is just something you can't do in the secondary. I don't care who your coach is, falling down is inexcusable and it should have been fixed well before Wade Phillips got here.

It's just like the Chris Myers deal where he was awful his first year, he had potential for sure, but it's not like he was some diamond in the rough. They were both needed a lot of refinement to their game, before they could be considered really good at their position. It appears KJax is finally getting to his potential, and I hope he continues to improve even more.

Default Re: The improbable improvement of Kareem Jackson

somebody needs to start the "improbable improvement of Brice McCain" thread. he's been the guy that's been getting picked on lately.

He'll need to step up big for our toughest stretch of games.

GB...Jennings, Jones and Jordy..tough combo to handle

NE....Lloyd, Welker and Edelman...2 of those guys are younger, quicker versions of the guy who ate him up in denver... Brandon Stokley.


Less worried about baltimore..I feel he can handle Jacoby

Default Re: The improbable improvement of Kareem Jackson

This actually happened yesterday. Thought I'd share ....

The wife and I had business to tend to Sunday, so we had to tape the game and watch it later in the afternoon. I had been noticing that KJax was having a good game, and after a play in the 4th, in which he broke up another pass, I commented to my wife, "You know, that guy has taken so much **** since he's been on this team, I think it would so f'king sweet if he picked one off and took it all the way back. That would be so cool!"

THE VERY NEXT PLAY, he picked it off and took it back for 6. Both of us leaped out of chairs, and yelled "Oh my God! Are you kidding me"!

She looks at me with this wary eye, and says, "Did you get that off the Internet or something?" I go, "No hon, I don't like being spoiled any more than you do!" She gets up, and starts looking around for my IPhone, my IPad, my laptop, and anything else that I could have used. Nada, they were all upstairs in the office. She finally sits back down and says, "you're just weird, you do that way, way too often."

For all the attention the pick 6 got, I think this play best epitomizes his growth as an NFL cornerback.

Another great game by K Jax.

I was especially impressed that he played keep away after that INT before finally giving himself up on the ground.

He ate up valuable clock and did not risk a fumble during the return. Very smart move

What's with all the seasoning. Crow is not meant to be tasty! lol.

And Kareem isn't bad at all. He's actually turned out to be a pretty good corner. Not quite great yet, but he's looked better than J-Jo in a couple games. He's learned a lot from him and Vance obviously.

A big shout out to 76Texan for being right all along on KJ.

Having said that, remember that KJ will struggle against the top big WRs still. He's not as bad as people were saying he was before -- he's also not as great as his recent "press clippings" pronounce, either.

I think we should serve those at the front of the line some seasoning, just make it a little salty.
