    Just wanted to say, we love ya man! regardless of the bumpy first season you had.

    I blame the defense woes on the coaches; you were given orders and you charged the hill!

    Kareem Jackson was a rookie that had way to high of expectations for him in his first season from the fans and was asked for way to difficult of a responsibility by his coaches. His problems and the defense's problems were strictly on the HC of this team and the GM that has done nothing to improve this defense over the years who trotted a rookie out there and expected him to cover guys well with a terrible pass rush.

    Kareem Jackson's struggles were hardly his fault.

    and was 15 steps behind every WR he covered, perfect example was on nolan INT in the last game, if not for nolan that was a wide open TD. Jackson does not have the speed/agility to be a true starter. U can teach fundamentals but its not on the coaches that he gets tourched every play. Look at Jason Allen he came in Mid season and made a big impact regardless of our poor coaching.

    Allen wasn't a rookie. He was cut by the dolphins(I think) and then we picked him up.

    Did someone from within the orginization tell you who made the decision to go with the young secondary ? Or did they tell you who made the decision to let D-Rob walk or who made the decision not to find a veteran presence via FA ? Unless you have an inside line into the inner workings of the orginization , you really cant do anything other than speculate as to who's to blame.

    Maybe the decision to keep Kubiak points to those financial decisions being made by Bob McNair rather than someone else ....

    Kareem Jackson spent as much time falling down as he did covering recievers .... I guess that's Kibiak and Smith's fault too ?

    We dont know who put Jackson in that position or rather who wanted to go all young. However, McNair laid the blame on the D coaches(whom were all fired except Kollar, though Kollar isnt secondary). Not that I'm buying what McNair said but..

    I think Jackson is a nickel defensive back.

    He's that underneath "free safety" who is up on the line and plays all the shallow stuff (curls, slants, WR bubble screens, etc.) and helps with run support (he's a good tackler most of the time).

    Going to be interesting to see what happens with Wade Phillips now. Does he try to fit a square peg into a round hole? Or does he use the guy to his strengths?

    Didn't Gibbs' system call for backpedaling?

    If so, that would explain why the guy fell down so much.

    Please!!!!

    Whoa is me?? How about not "falling down"?

    And to quote myself, I believe he will be fine in the secondary.... someday.

    so why didnt anyone else ???? and i think all cbs back pedal to an extent, i played CB. and its the only way to see what ur WR is doing not to mention its the easiest way to change direction, if u turn and run downfield and the WR cuts inside u are screwed, and wont be able pick him back up quickly.
