Default Ok so lets lay this to rest. By Stats and not personal opinons on our CB's

Kareem Jackson HOU 73 11.1 83 15.3 6.0 83 47% 67

Rashean Mathis JAC 64 10.1 78 14.1 4.9 79 44% 72

Jason Allen 2TM 58 9.3 74 16.7 3.4 39 52% 46

Jason Allen actually had his best season in 2010, especially after Miami released him and Houston picked him up. His high yards per pass figure comes from just a handful of plays, mostly by Braylon Edwards. For some reason, Allen was dominated by Edwards, who had receptions of 67, 42, and 27 yards against Allen in two games (one with Miami, one with Houston).

Texans RCB Kareem Jackson was burned for touchdown passes of 28 and 55 yards in length by Seyi Ajirotutu in Houston's Week 9 loss.
Jackson is a first-round rookie out of Alabama; Ajirotutu went undrafted out of Fresno State. The Texans' rookie insists he hasn't lost his confidence, but we've got to believe otherwise. He's been getting burned all year. Texans DC Frank Bush will have to consider benching Jackson in the near future.

Read all of it the stats say Jackson was the NFLs 2nd worst CB - First being Hall of the Skins. As u will notice Jason Allen is also on the list but ranked 40 spots above Jackson. Take this for what its worth but i'm done arguing about it. I cant change ur opinion just like u cant change mine our the stats that say he was worse.

From the article linked above:

The other thing we see on this list was the complete implosion of the Dallas secondary this season. There were some injury issues, but Mike Jenkins and Terence Newman were horrible all season.
These were Wade's CBs. They struggled despite having a better pass rush than the Texans had. There are some who believe Phillips can turn these Texan CB lemons into lemonade. I'm thinking the Texans need to find some proven talent.

Bro, I dont think many people are arguing that KJ didnt suck last year. Thats not what anyone is saying.

HE WAS A ROOKIE CORNERBACK.

CB, along with QB are the two most difficult positions to play as a rookie (from what Ive read). When you stick a rookie CB on an island and put him against veteran #1 WR's with NO pass rush.....what results do you expect.

The only thing I argued, and will continue to argue, is that he is a rookie. Give him a couple of years before you ship him off and declare him the worst CB that ever played the game. Its ridiculous for you to think that one year, his first year at pro-level, will sum up his ability to play football.

All I have said since day one is lets put a little better supporting cast around him, give him another year or two and see what happens. If he is performing around the same level in year three as he did in year one, then yes, ship him off.

That's my argument.

This makes more sense, a lot more sense. Let's go get two more experienced corners. Bring in three.

But to think Allen is a better prospect than KJac just because he didn't suck as much after 5 years in the league makes no sense at all.

But there's no arguing with some people.

Makes sense to me.

Perhaps we should compare Jason Allen's rookie season to KJac's rookie season & see what that looks like.

Kareem started 16 games, 10 passes defensed, 2 Ints, 71 tackles.
Allen, 0 games started, 1 pass defensed, 1 Int, 20 tackles.

If Allen can go from that to the stud he was in 2010, KJac is going to be the best shutdown corner the league has ever seen in 2015.

i'm not saying ship him off. i believe he deserves another chance, BUT he shouldnt automatically be handed the starting job. AJ is getting older and i think everyone wants to win NOW. I dont think we should take ANOTHER chance that he will cut it/improve this season. We need a FA and whoever shows the most in training camp to be the #2-3 CBs. Thats all i'm saying.

I don't have an opinion on KJ or Allen at this point. Clearly Allen was better than KJ last year but you can't find anything useful with that knowledge unless you can put it in context.

KJ was a rookie. That can work both ways. You can't assume that he'll get better because busts everywhere stay lousy for years. If he's not a complete bust then yes, he should absolutely get better.

Allen did better than he's ever done before after coming to the Texans. That can also work both ways. Sure, after five years you can say that everyone knows what he's capable of. At the same time he's spent his entire career in Miami, played for three different head coaches in 5 years, and never settled into either a CB or FS role. I'm not saying he's going to surprise anyone but he wouldn't be the first player to do nothing of note in his first stop in the NFL and then straighten up when given a change of scenery.

I believe that it would be a mistake to close the book on either one of them. There are legitimate reasons why each one may have failed to deliver on their respective potential. If our much lauded defensive coaching changes were even close to as good as we've been told they were then it's entirely plausible that one or both of these players might turn it around.

If we haven't fixed the coaching problems on that side of the ball then they're both assured of continuing to suck.

They'd both look real good fighting for the starting spot opposite Aso IMO

I'm going to argue on both sides of this debate so I can go back to one old post or another someday and look smart.

Just kidding; I'm to lazy to do that.

Agreed. If I had it my way, we would bring in a stud vet CB that would shore up that side of the field and the rest seems to fall into place.

I seriously think we are one great acquisition away from being a very good football team.

That's the essence of the "anti" Kareem argument.

1) Jackson sucked in 2010. Hard.
2) Without OTAs or minicamps, there's no compelling evidence that Jackson has improved.
3) Jackson should earn a job in 2011, as opposed to being handed a job in 2010.

What's so contentious about that? From everything I've heard from Phillips, Jackson has a lot of questions to answer. Drafting 2 CBs and probably picking up more in free agency tells me even more. I don't hate Kareem. I just want the best players on the field.

No one underperforming should be allowed to escape ongoing real time re-evaluation of their playing status (especially the starting positions), something the Texans have had a difficult time doing.

Does anyone really expect Allen to play well again?

Weve had at least 3 DBs come in midseason and play well, get contracts, and then get progressively worse.

It would seem like the odds are against him playing well again but the law of averages says sooner or later someone is going to come here, sign a contract, and not suck the very next year.

I can't say it will be Allen but it might be. We can't get them all wrong.

Wait, can we?

What's so contentious about that? From everything I've heard from Phillips, Jackson has a lot of questions to answer. Drafting 2 CBs and probably picking up more in free agency tells me even more. I don't hate Kareem. I just want the best players on the field.
I can agree with this as well. But I would also add that the same applies for Jason Allen. He should not be handed a starting job just because he has more years than Kareem. He still sucks.

I've seen a story somewhere, saying that Wade likes McCain anyway.. something he saw on tape. For all we know, McCain is the front runner but all three will be competing for the job opposite whoever we get in FA.

It can't be from 2010 game tape, because all that's there is a whole lot McCain suckitude.
