DB coach Joseph shares some insight

Posted by drewdougherty on July 21, 2011 – 3:42 pm

Earlier today we got a chance to huddle with Vance Joseph. The Texans new defensive backs coach gave us a few moments in his office, and we conducted this 1-on-1 interview. (We also shot an X’s and O’s segment, like the ones we did with Bill Kollar, Reggie Herring and John Benton, and we’ll have it on the site tomorrow.)

Joseph covered a few different topics, including the move of Glover Quin from cornerback to safety. Joseph, who spent the past six seasons as an assistant with the 49ers, thinks Quin is a good cornerback who can be a great safety.

After reviewing the 2010 game tapes, he also saw a lot of positives in the play of Kareem Jackson, who struggled as a rookie. Specifically, Joseph said Jackson “played his zones” well, and has “great feet, great movement, great eyes and is a tough tackler.” According to Joseph, Jackson’s problems came a few times in man coverage. But he thinks that when Jackson’s technique is down, “he’ll be fine.”

Rookie safety Shiloh Keo impresses Joseph because of his “football speed”, as the Idaho product recorded the second fastest 20-yard shuttle time at the 2011 Combine.

Ultimately, Joseph said he’s excited to work under defensive coordinator Wade Phillips and that he can’t wait for training camp.

    Texans need to rush out get CB Jonathan Joseph & S Eric Weddle from free agency, and with young talent playing behind them the Texans can Dominate our way in to the Playoffs. Please consider solid #2 WR to support Johnson this man has played hard for us!!!! and deserves a SB ring before he retires with us.
