, just wasting my life, scrolling, waiting for them to kick in before going to the gym to get strong while listening to the new Freddie Gibbs album when I saw these two tweets.These two life-changing, game-breaking, ocean-splitting, tectonic plate smashing tweets. Yes, yes Womens Nick Martin Jersey
, yes, it’s finally happening. Kareem Jackson is finally moving to safety full time. This was confirmed by Bill O’Brien on Sports Radio 610 this afternoon. According to Football Outsiders’ Premium Charting Data, Jackson was targeted 77 times last year, allowing 8.1 yards a pass, for a success rate of 52%, surrendering 1.4 yards after the catch, with the average attempt traveling 11.1 yards through the air last year. This is all really bad. The only good news was that Kareem still tackled well Authentic J.J. Watt Jersey
, missing a tackle only 15.8% of the time.Jackson has never been precise with his footwork. He’s made up for it as a cornerback with athleticism and physicality. But now, as the aging progress marches on, he’s lost a step.With that lost step, his ability to play cornerback successfully has also gone away. Oh, and being unable to look for the ball or turn around doesn’t help either. This is a move the Texans probably should have made two or three years ago. Quintin Demps, Kurtis Drummond, Rahim Moore...there have been a ton of terrible safeties playing in Houston before Andre Hal took over. The position seems better suited for Jackson’s skills Authentic Johnathan Joseph Jersey
, and it should allow him to play better as the gray hairs keep arriving. Things are still murky for Jackson, though. The Texans have Tyrann Mathieu and just drafted Justin Reid; Reid should be able to come in and play right away. If anything, with Hal being sidelined indefinitely, Jackson could be a third safety for Houston this year and slide to the nickel corner spot if something terrible happens injury-wise.Zach Cunningham Got Big This Offseason Zach Cunningham’s rookie season was a success last year. He had 90 tackles, started the majority of the season at inside linebacker next to Benardrick McKinney after Brian Cushing was suspended, and did more than just make tackles on the punt team. He displayed much better tackling technique than he did during his time at Vanderbilt. Yeah, Cunningham struggled at taking on guards one-on-one and he reacted to plays later than he should have http://www.houstontexansteamonline.com/benardrick-mckinney-jersey
, but overall, 2017 was a good year for Cunningham. Time moves forward, and so does the progression of an athlete. Cunningham has spent this offseason growing a beard, living in the weight room, and bulking up so he can do things like stand up a guard with his punch and rip underneath to find the ball carrier or tackle Leonard Fournette and not allow him to fall forward for additional yards. Aaron Wilson wrote a story for the Houston Chronicle detailing what Cunningham has been doing all spring and summer:Read the article. Aaron did a nice job on it. There’s also more information on Cunningham’s progression as a player and O’Brien’s thoughts on his rookie season.
