What do you guys think of 1st time starter Jonathan Owens. Does he look like a starter to you?

No, he doesn't look instinctive. When Thomas comes back, I'd move King to FS and Thomas goes to the nickel corner.

That the reason he gets any media attention at all and most people that know his name know it for reasons other than his football talent. That’s what I think.

I’d rather Owens get reps so the team can see if he continues to improve than give those reps to Eric Murray.
I agree with that. All I'm saying is that Owens is not the long-term answer. BTW, Owens is 27 and becomes a FA next offseason.

Ok... let's not get crazy. No one is talking about Murray getting more reps.

I'm just waiting for JO to make a play. I heard before the game that he was leading the NFL in tackles. & I was remembering I don't remember any of those tackles. I'm pulling for him.

idkn and it's still an early season frankly Texans are tied 2nd place with Colts in division hehe the jags are 1-1 in first. Win the division or wild card your in the playoffs no? Hope they beat the Bears I want them to prove the naysayers wrong that they would lose the first 4 games. There is time and room to continue evaluate the players while waiting for the physical fit arrivals from off the active roster.

He's a solid player.

Wont hurt you.
kinda how i feel. He's young..that 3rd & 16 was not optimal...but like all of our secondary guys he's gonna make some mistakes. What makes great secondary's is they have to learn to play with and off each other in zones. Once he Stingley and Pitre learn the system and learn how to play off each other, they should get better. Right now, none of these guys know how to carry & recieve guys into their zones..which is critical for optimal zone defense play.

He's a career backup. Love the kid's story, and he has built himself a place in the league...but as a backup/spot starter. It's a position that should be on the upgrade list. One of many BTW.

In the top 12 for missed tackles


While that is bad, and he needs to improve on the tackling, I blame our LBs for this. Those guys constantly run themselves out of the play leaving these RBs with a full head of steam and plenty of space to make guys in the secondary miss

exactly...made up stat....interesting to see that KGH is #11 on that same list.
what's stranger is those stats are the same as official tackles made stats and the graphs even say made tackles... only their disclaimer of interpreted as missed tackles mentions missed anywhere
