There was that one drive where Kareem refused to play up on his man, but other than that, they just took advantage of an overly aggressive defense.

I don't like how a lot of people are poo-poo'ing the WR talent just added to the Jags and Titans.

Do their QBs lack? Yes. But it takes one well-placed pass to Wright or Blackmon and they could hurt you really badly. Like "take it to the house" badly.

And let's not even talk about if that well-placed pass is against a certain CB in the back of the end zone.

I understand we're proud of our guy in the 1st round here. But let's not get drunk on our Kool Aid just yet. Use moderation.

I'll poo poo Wright and Gabbert all I want. I've stated before that Wright as a prospect is not what I wanted in the first round. It's going to take more than one good pass from Gabbert to Blackmon to beat the Texans.

To each their own, but I felt helpless watching that game, like Brees knew we couldn't cover everyone. But then again, he probably feels that way against most teams.

Sproles had an effective game, but other then that one screen pass, it wasn't too spectacular. He may have also been kept under 100 yards from scrimmage even.

I might be remembering it wrong, but I thought it was a combination of Moore, Henderson, Meachem, and Sproles, with Jimmy Graham up the middle.

It's very possible that Adams took Wright just to piss off Houston. They could have taken a guard to block for Chris Johnson.

Just curious, what's the knock on Wright?

Didn't run as well as expected, Lacks strength, concerns about his body and height.

Wright is gonna be a huge pain in our side for a long time...

I think if you're not at least on face value nervous about each at this moment adding playmakers outside, there's something wrong with you.

It is nice having a #1 CB who can handle a top receiver for opponents, but a lot of people are hitting it right, IF KJ is our outright #2....there is reason for concern.

They did at least add a piece in the pass rush, which could possibly negate it. I am just nervous about any one year wonder.

I'm not worried about it.

Blackmon will be Jacksonville's #1 WR which means he'll get Jjo and Wright will be Tennesse's slot or #2 guy and if they plan on going deep to him good luck with that. They'll have Merciless, Cushing, Reed, Barwin, Watt, and Smith all coming after em.

The additions of Blackmon and Wright to the Jags and the Titans will worry our secondary as much as the addition of Mercilus will to their OL and quarterbacks.

I think you're touching on something that worries me about Tenn. Now that they - theoretically - have two legit WR threats (and a fairly decent youngster at TE) our safeties have to pay attention to the WRs and can't "cheat" by keeping tabs on CJ. If Tenn. has the sense to spread the field, CJ's speed in open spaces could now be more of an issue. ...just like Sproles did when we had to keep tabs on all of New Orleans' WRs & TEs.

....could be trouble if they spread us out and we end up having to cover CJ with a LB.

Does Jackson leave something to be desired, yes. Was our pass defense really good last year, yes. I'm not going to loose any sleep over this. Plus I trust Wade in his evaluation of pass rushers and Mercilus was a holy terror last year with a knack for creating turnovers.

KJ is a good enough cover corner to blanket his man while the texans pass rush is getting after the qb. when the pass rush isnt getting any pressure is when the entire secondary is vulnerable.. kinda like that 4th quarter in new orleans..

Blackmon and Wright aren't even close to the quality of prospect that AJ Green and Julio Jones were last year. Also KJ got alot better last year and I expect him to do the same this next season. Even Vance Joseph, the DB coach, is speaking highly of him. I think many of you underrate KJ.

Exactly. We are going to have the best pash rush in the league. Chances any WR in our division has a good game against us is very slim.

Exactly. They went offense, we went defense. And our offense is still better than ANY in the AFC South. Besides, we still have the rest of the draft. The meat of the draft always comes in the middle rounds anyway.

I think Johnathan Joseph can handle either of them. Both of these guys play better out of the slot, and Jackson rarely covers the slot receiver. And as others have suggested, the WR can't get the ball when their QB is on his back.
