Default So, what is your early opinion about Kareem Jackson's play?

I thought he did very well.

If all the guys can do the same things he did (that is to play his role and carry out his assignment, plus a little extra here and there), the outcome of the game would have been totally different.

Besides the coverage that he participated in, I also heard of a play in which the media team from New Orleans saying that Brees wanted to go long, but didn't (can't see the coverage downfield so I'm not in a position to declare what was going down).

KJ also prevented two potential TDs (on the same drive in which the Saints finally scored anyway) with his run defense skill.

What did you see?

Default Re: So, what is your early opinion about Kareem Jackson's play?

I was pleased with what I saw from him, albeit CB is tough to follow on TV. I felt like his run support was not that of a rookies but more of a veterans. There were probably a couple of hiccups in there (I heard the announcer refer to a missed tackle) but I though he stood his ground and took good angles for the most part.

The announcer that said he missed that tackle was not watching that play as he was the one the made that tackle after the dline and lbr's all missed.

If you are referring to the pair from New Orleans, they (well, one of them) couldn't be more wrong about it.

There was one play that KJ had stayed on the outside of Shockey to make sure the RB couldn't go wide before he switfly followed the RB inside (Shockey wasn't able to do anything about it). Wilson made the tackle at any rate.

The NO guy said "if the RB had gone outside, it would have been a sure TD because Shockey had the defender pinned inside."
That guy is terrible, I'm sorry! And he called it on the replay, too, not at first sight!

As a rookie, he prevented Brees from picking on him or going long. That's a good sign.

He also made a spectacular tackle when the ball carrier had made it past the LB's. He flashed in from open field and clipped the runner's legs. Beautiful stop.

I am horribly optimistic about Jackson, I am forever hoping to get a lockdown CB in the draft. I pinned my hopes and dreams on Bennett and Molden, I've invested in Quin and now my heart is with Jackson.

If one of those guys can be THE guy, I'd be the happiest Texans fan in Omaha.

Default Re: So, what is your early opinion about Kareem Jackson's play?

Well since he didn't get any picks you have to kind of judge him on what didn't happen. He didn't get toasted long. He didn't get picked on short. He didn't get an egregious PI called on him. I did like his presence in the run game, and I didn't think he looked very rookie-ish on the field with the other starters.

Unfortunately, the rest of the defense didn't really help out so he wasn't making spectacular plays. He did all the little stuff.

From watching at the game, ( the little bit I can remember), KJ was jamming his man at the line and then pretty much blanketing them down the field. I thought he had a great game. I was pretty much focused on him for as long as I could focus.

Default Re: So, what is your early opinion about Kareem Jackson's play?

Kareem Jackson is a straight up stud...he knows how to run, cover and hit. Anyone that watched the Tide roll the last few years should not be surprised by this guy. It really doesn't hurt that he has to play Andre in practice either. I don't think I'm jumping the gun by saying this guy is going to be our version of Revis. Jackson just happened to be the best corner in the SEC last year and the guy knows how to win because he is a champion. If we can get decent play from the other corner and the Pollard/Nolan/Wilson hold their own....our secondary worries are over, which will help the defensive line even with Okoye in there.

early opinion? Pick was a reach.

after 1 preseason game opinion? Pick wasn't a reach.

Haven't one of those since Aaron Glenn. Hell, Marcus Coleman was better than anything we've had since and he got moved to safety.

I know my sarcasim is not very contructive, but I couldn't bring myself to rewatch the game to break down tape. I have wiped the NO game from my memory, I'm moving on to Dallas and putting NO down as a mulligan. Barring any disaster while playing for the Governors Cup I plan on watching KJ closely.

Good news ....KJ held up. Bad news ... he wasn't picked on enough to really gauge his skills. If the run game defense wasn't so pathetic we might have had a better idea of his cover skills. Early limited evaluation, he looks pretty good so far.

True that, but KJ showed that he fight off blockers very well to get to the runner.

I like McCain in coverage in certain situations, for example, but I do not enjoyed watching him get washed away and let the runner goes wild for a long gain or a TD.
The same goes for other CBs who we had that were inconsistent in run support last year.

I'm glad to see McMannis improving that part of his game (from his college tapes) even though it's also too early to tell.

I couldn't watch much of the games, but I watched enough to know one thing: Bennett has no place on this team.

By most reports KJ played the run well and looks like the kind of corner the Texans expected in the sense that he'd come up and do a solid job of defensing the rushing game. On the other hand his pass-coverage skills are still unknown because he simply was not tested by Brees & the Saints, in part because they ran the ball at will and there was not much need for Brees to go to the passing-game. Stay tuned for the game Saturday vs Romo & the Cowboys for a more complete answer of KJs skills, especially in pass-coverage.
