    Who knew how badly we missed that guy? Two games in, and he's proven himself to be our best corner. In hindsight, what a great signing that was.

    Since the 2nd half of last season he has been better than solid. Before that...

    They 'killed him' because he gave up almost 900 yards last year, 1 in 10 passes attempted against the Texans landed in his man's hands, at a rate of 16 yards per reception. :spin:

    wasn't that in the crap D we rolled out last year. last years D was a mess, this is now. mario isn't lighting it up, nor slaton, should we kill them. like i said he's solid, not great. this is the same board that killed petey when when he was what he was.

    Petey deserved it! and Reeves didn't play to well when he first got here. he has turned it around. the defensive back coaches should get some credit, although i could of told him to "turn you freaking head and look for the ball", and might of got the same results.

    I'm seeing this coaching staff doing some developing. One of the biggest things I noticed was the CB's are getting their hands up and playing the hands of the WR's. More knockdowns on plays where the CB has his hand inside the WR.

    Also, on the DLine. Linemen getting their hands up when the pass is thrown. This has started to taper off though. I'd like to see that continue.

    I did! along with anyone that read my posts about him last year, this off-season, or early this season.

    He got killed last year because, despite having decent position most of the time, he didn't play the ball worth a damn. This year, he's actually playing the ball decently, and it's made a difference. I'm happy to see him have some success.

    I think that Dunta has been playing fine. I hope he continues to get better and he and Rick Smith can come to an agreement.

    You did Dale.

    I was in the Reeves stinks camp.

    It appears as though he is really developing.

    I'll be very happy to admit that I was wrong.

    Keep it up Jacques Reeves.

    Which is the reason the Cowgirls got rid of him. He could play great when facing the QB, and was very good in coverage right up to the time when the ball was dropping in right over his shoulder. The Cowgirls couldn't teach him when/how to look for the ball, adn dropped him. He was the guy to toast when playing against Dallas when he was there...so they dropped him. Towards the end of last season, he was showing better judgement and looking for the ball "most" of the time. I've been very impressed in his two games back.

    I did. I defended Reeves last year when the conventional wisdom here said he sucked nutsacs and had no business as a starting CB in the NFL. Aside from the need for every fanbase to have its favorite pinata to whack on, I never understood why Reeves was so vilified by the TT community. Where others saw a terrible player who was getting fed a steady diet of burnsauce by opposing WR/QB tandems, I saw an aggressive, fast cornerback who stuck to receivers like flypaper. The only knock on him is his lack of ball awareness, but so freaking what? The guy is a good cover corner. If he could do what many here demand of him, he'd be an elite talent. He doesn't need to be elite, he just needs to be good. Good he is.
