Was a week too early for Kareems breakout game, but damn...He looks great this year.
Yes. Yes we do.
I wouldn't go so far as to call KJ a shutdown corner, but he could be a #1 on a couple of teams.
KJ is much improved, and playing well, but I wouldn't say he's a shutdown corner.
Definitely not a shutdown corner, but if Kareem can continue to improve at the rate he has been, then he'll eventually become one of the better #2s in the league.
We have 2 VERY GOOD cornerbacks. Not sure about shutdown.
One good, one very good.
This will work wonders for our defense, for KJ to have had that pick 6 today.
Now, offenses will be thinking twice about trying KJ's side of the field. And at a minimum, WRs will be hesitant to try him too much.
Plus, this raises KJ's confidence like by a billion. He might try and play the ball a bit more...having tasted what a pick 6 feels like. First ever reg season pick 6 for KJ.
But with our front 7 that's more than good enough.
It was the lowly Titans, but KJ was shut down today...
on a side note, mccain looking like the mccain from 2010...
McCains fighting slot schemes that create openings .... Hard to fault him.
Jackson has been pretty damn good this season ... Nice to see that #1 pick finally paying off and putting and end to any bust talk.
Dont know if I would go o far as to call Jackson a shut down corner just yet ... but is there a better pair of corners or safeties in the league ?
I am comfortable in calling JJo a shutdown corner. KJ is a work in progress, improving and getting better each game.
KJ has played great all season. Especially the last 2 weeks. I can't wait to see what his boost in Madden is. I'm tired of teams being able to pick on him lol
We better have two shutdown corners if Shiloh Keo has to fill in for Demps.. commissioner Smith needs to pick up the bat phone and call Mr. Nolan.
as i and a few have said, he gets better every single game. JJo, revis, and bailey are probably the only cb's in the "shutdown" argument, but there are few #2's better than kareem - and not all that many #1's. sure he still has his weaknesses, such as playmaking ability and locating deeper throws, but as we saw today those weaknesses are disappearing.
J-Jo is 100% shutdown. Arguably top 3 in the league albeit not talked about as much as Revis and Asomugha are.
Not as talked about as Asomugha once was...he seems to have taken a step back in that zone system Philly has him playing in.
But JJo is injured and sucks now
I loved the way the great plays by KJ led towards that huge Pick6. First the nonchalant tap back with his inside arm over his shoulder, then that huge open field hit on CJ150YPG, then immediately after he jumped that route extremely early and from a long way back, had the confidence in him to gamble on his read and went for it BOOM!!
I know they have very different skill sets, but I can see Kareem devoloping to play just as good as Joseph has his first year on a consistent basis. Always think he will be more suited to play the #2 WR of most teams, due to the ultimate pace issues, and his strength in the short game too.
