AJ Terrell

A couple snap shots of Terrell when targeted this year. Good sophomore season thus far!

If he turns his head on the PI, he has an INT. Hope he adds some ball skills to his game but pure coverage and tackling seem to be there.

Of course, it’ll help if the other side of the field isn’t a liability and maybe a pass rush could force some throws. :tiphat:

Am I reading that correctly?  AJ has better stats than Diggs but less interceptions so that makes Diggs passer rating against that much better?  Am I getting that right?

He also has 14 pd’s this season , this Twitter account kinda glossed over stats and didn’t show the whole thing

Love the way he tackles too. I know it's not the most important thing for your coverage CB but he's a dog.

And he has outstanding verticals... except he has to perfect landing on his feet and not his head.

🤣👍🏈

Precisely, teams are starting to try and avoid AJ. It’s like of the old days when Revis could cut off one side of the field. His footwork and use of hands is top notch. 

Diggs On the other hand gets targeted more as his coverage skills need a little more improvement but they ability to attack and play the ball in the air is what makes him special whether it’s an int or pd.
 

I feel like both will get even better before the end of the season

Diggs is a ballhawk, but he's not the soundest in coverage, there's a difference in QBs barely throwing at a guy because he's lockdown, and a guy getting tested because receivers are able to beat him at a decent rate. He gets the bonus of media loving the Cowboys and his ability to find the ball has been amazing so far, like a Marcus Peters 2.0. That said, Jaylon Johnson and AJ Terrell have been the two best corners from that draft class so far.

It's a playstyle thing, and a product of pressure too. Diggs is a risk taker - plays to bait QBs and his route recognition is awesome. Really quick trigger when he sees a QB is going somewhere. Terrell is more of a mirroring routes guy, sticks to his dude like glue because he's such a phenomenal athlete and he trusts his technique. Where Diggs has gotten his INTs because he plays facing the QB a lot and the Cowboys pass rush is great, we're stuck with one of the worst DLs in the NFL and Terrell is used to running around with his guy for several seconds. Once we have a better pass rush and he can trust guys to get home, I think he'll start turning his head more and taking some chances.

Also have to remember that he is playing significantly better offenses tbh , Chargers, Panthers, and TB.

I don't think it was a brain fart on the Jets PI, it was a bad call. Terrell arrived at the same time as the ball and knocked it away. Flag happy refs and the NFL's bloodlust for the defense to allow the offense to score was the problem on that play...

That likely never would've been called in the 90s. If anyone wondered if what we watch called 'sports' is actually sports entertainment, that's the proof right there. Every sports league has spent the last couple decades tying the hands of defenses to increase scoring, so they can get more eyes on the tv to sell ads.

Sports are what you play in your back yard for fun. When money is involved, it's nothing but WWE style entertainment.
