    Dwight Lowery

    Looks like he made Jacksonville's 53 man roster.

    Always liked his toughness and he could tackle. Also had a nose for the ball.

    But he was "Eric Smith' slow..

    Beginning his 5th year. Time flies...

    I have to disagree with this. Lowery was slow as a CB - not as a safety.

    I'm not surprised he made the 53 considering he ended the season as one of their starting safeties.

    Lets say he was REALLY slow for a CB and slow for a Safety.

    Lowery is a MUCH smoother athlete than Smith. And his speed is fine for a safety. Too bad we didn't keep him. The guy has very good cover skills.

    Is Lowry better than Kyle Wilson?

    In Rex' defense, he likes safety's that hit.....doesn't keep cover guys like Lowery and Rhodes

    Not me for 3 yrs I we watched Lowry get picked on.. I just wish we would of moved him to safety.

    I think people go over board on Wilson the guy isn't Revis or anything elite I get that.. But he is pretty solid for a nickel guy..

    No question about it. Wilson is more athletic -- faster and stronger -- but Lowery has much better cover skills, ball skills, and instincts.

    When they were so depleted at Safety last year, it really makes me think why they didn't try Wilson at S to get him on the field.

    I just remember Lowry making a diving pass break up to win the game against Miami. Because Revis and cro are so good, Wilson gets picked on

    Lowry being so bad is the reason we brought in Cro and Drafted Wilson. He was beyond terrible at Corner he single handily got picked on in games..

    And that while he was playing outside. Wilson plays a Nickel Roll which is even a harder job.

    How soon we forget Garçon completely dominating his ass in the 09 playoffs

    Lowery has started and played on the outside against MUCH better WRs than Wilson has been matched up on. The one time Wilson got put on a good WR -- Victor Cruz -- he got destroyed. He gave up the longest pass play in NFL history, and would have given up another long TD had Eli Manning not missed him on another big play. (Go back and watch the game, Cruz beats Wilson like a drum and is running wide open and Manning overthrows him).

    If Cro or Revis go down, everyone will see just how bad Wilson is.

    If that were so, Wilson, now in his third year, would finally be able to learn to get his head around and find the ball. If that were so, the Jets wouldn't be playing him in the fourth quarter of preseason games, with the rest of the scrubs.

    I've tried to like Wilson, and obviously he's improved from his horrendous rookie year, but I'm so sick of seeing him get beat on third downs, always trailing behind the play.

    I'd MUCH prefer to have Lowery over Wilson, at least Lowery made plays. Name one play Wilson's ever made... and I'll counter it with last year's Cruz debacle. If he were a third-round pick, it'd be easier to digest.

    Does this count as a play?

    I don't think you can learn ball skills. I think it's just instincts. We've seen plenty of athletic guys who couldn't play CB because of their lack of ball skills/instincts. Justin Miller comes to mind. Athletically gifted, but could not play CB worth a lick.
