Denver Broncos: Stock report after Falcons loss
Kareem Jackson, S
Although Kareem Jackson did not play a bad game today, his decision-making finds itself on the stock downside of things. For the second week in a row, Jackson made the decision to lower his helmet into a receiver’s helmet.
Last week, he missed the receiver and took out his own teammate, A.J. Bouye.
This week, his decision led to a massive personal foul penalty, which actually would be the second consecutive personal foul penalty the Broncos’ defense received, following a roughing the passer penalty assessed on Bradley Chubb.
These free gifts were the last thing the already fired up Falcons’ offense needed.
Nobody questions how good Jackson has been, or how good of a transition he has made from corner to safety. In fact, Jackson and Simmons may be the best safety tandem in the league.
Jackson needs to be more disciplined, and play cleaner football, is what it boils down to.
