    I like Jackson's improvement in year 2 and would easily rate him in the top 64 corners league wide after his 2011 performance. He caught some flak for some of the receptions he gave up in the playoffs, but from what I could see, those were just spectacular catches that Joseph couldn't have stopped in that situation.

    I'm very comfortable going into this season with him tying up #2 WRs and I was one of his biggest critics after a train wreck rookie campaign.

    UGH. Freeze frame any throw to KJ's receiver in 2011 and you will either see KJ looking away from the ball or falling down. He may have had great plays this year, however i think that is more luck of the draw than anything.

    Still need another CB or two in the Don't-Touch-The-QB league.

    KJ had some big problems on deep balls because he can`t locate the ball when his back is to the QB. I guess that a lot of coaching and a lot of work will be put in this offseason to correct that.

    But when he was facing the QB he played really, really well - and not just covering his man, but also in run support and helping the other dbs.

    In his first years KJ was burnt on many slants and was fooled by many WRs with double moves - he drastically improved in that area. So I think there is hope, that this year he can improve on the deep balls as well.

    the problem is that last season we always had consistent pressure on the QB that the WR rarely even had a chance to put a double move on KJ. Lets not forget he did get burned pretty bad a few times. Thanks to Julio of the falcons dropping the ball we managed to hang on for that win.

    If we dont get consistent pressure on the QB that is when i will be concerned cause that is when he will get exposed. like in 2010

    Considering his only competition last year went to the Bengals, I really don't see how this is news...

    Yeah, I don't get why this is news worthy.

    Of course kj is the #2 corner. Who the he'll else would it be?

    If he plays well enough to hold on to that job he'll keep it. But if someone else obviously outplays him I think the other guy would take some snaps.

    Call me crazy but I look forward to seeing what Roc Carmichael can bring. I think last year he was "red-shirted" and he's the reason why Allen was let go.

    Food for thought. Let's see how this all plays out. In Wade I Trust...

    In Wade, we trust??

    Maybe Wade knows something we don't? Maybe Wade thinks more of KJ than we all do... I'll bite..............





    For the time being.

    We can have a down year and still be top 5, so hopefully we can live with that.

    An offense or defense in the top ten is always something to be proud of. Top five is even better. :)

    If you look at the league there few great QB's and some decent QB's.... That's why they are protected.

    I agree that KJ had better year but that was due largely to improvement of over all D especially moving him opposite a probowler and putting better safeties in backfield. We will see what coaching can do for him. I still want to see Harris and Carmichael on field.

    If that's the case....

    Will we ever see Brandon Harris? I only ask this because I think McCain's got the nickle position locked up (he played really well in that spot last season IMO), and I can see Carmichael playing the role of spelling McCain and being the 4th CB.

    I just have to say that if Wade says it, I believe it. He's earned that thus far in my book.
