I'm loving it.

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

Hopefully I'm not speaking too soon, but it's time to start mentioning Kareem as a possible pro bowl.

Even last week against green bay he played a good game.

He has played excellent all season if you ask me. Not to early at all. He has become a very solid corner.

KJ played well. Credit should go to both KJ and DB coach Vance Joseph.

KJ played really well. I watched him on many plays at the game. He didn't let his receiver get much separation throughout. My only complaint is that he needs to turn around. He's likely to get PI calls if he doesn't turn his head and play the ball. I think he could defense more and take some away also.

That bothers me as well. He never turns his head around to look for the ball and he's already in great position to knock it away or intercept it. I'm on board with him becoming a pro bowler if he ever learns to do that right.

And when not doing that he was zeroing in on open field kill shots. Dude is a killer when making sure, open field tackles. He played very well.

What a wasted pick. (sorry, couldn't pass that shot up)

LOL!

I think it's a little early to talk about the Pro Bowl.

Right now, I'm just happy that he plays as the solid all-around CB I know he is.

Before the season even started, people were talking about him being a first round bust. (I'm betting there's a couple who still think he is.)

How quickly things change.

Kareem has been better this year than Joseph. He's been more of a shutdown corner overall.

Joseph is covering the #1 receiver not the 2nd option.... but yes Kareem is playing extremely good.

This... Kareem has been awesome but he is not on the #1. There is a big difference

Joseph covered top guys last year too...

Joseph does cover top guys more often, but Kareem has still had a better year overall.

Kareem has been owning his guys. Joseph has looked suspect at times. I think it's mostly due to his injury, but I'm just stating what I've seen.
