This is why I find the idea that Gregg Williams does not develop players to be laughable.

There are absolutely legitimate questions about his scheme and ability to lead this team to a title. But he is a great developmental coach. Regardless of what the future holds, Gregg should be applauded for developing Peppers, Mitchell, Schobert, etc.
Williams does seem to be very good at teaching the mental aspects of the game and at empowering players to make reads and aggressive decisions based on those reads.

I’d imagine it looked a lot faster when he was playing in the fucking Muni lot in 2017.

Say what you want about his play last year, this type of stuff has me pretty excited for his future. It's nice to see that his attention-to-detail and IQ, two things he was highly praised for coming out of UM, has translated well leading to on-the-field growth before our eyes.
This defense is a step or 2 away from being a top 3 defense. Peppers, ward, Myles, and schobert are one hell of a core.

I had to go to page 2 to find the Jabrill thread.

You know he's been playing lights out when that is the case. :chuckle:

Tip of the cap to JP for a huge leap forward in year 2.

Actually, this thread had a lot of activity a couple weeks ago when he had a fantastic game. Last couple weeks he didn't play great, especially against the Ravens. I think it's a reflection of the rise of expectations for him...we've come to expect him to play well.

Regardless, Jabrill had a very good season. He had more elite performances than bad performances this season, and in between he ranged from average to great.

I'll be the first to admit I hated the pick and I killed him for his play last year...though, I recognized that it wasn't entirely his fault as he was being played grossly out of position and held out hope that he could be a solid player at his natural position. I was overjoyed with how Jabrill played this season...he exceeded expectations.

Next step for him will be consistency. Nobody performs at a consistently elite level, but if he is able to eliminate the "bad" performances and replace them with average ones, sprinkled in with elite performances, he'll be a multi-time pro bowler at the least.

Hopefully this charade of having him return kicks/punts is over and he can spend all his time & focus, and get more snaps, on defense.

I stuck up for Peppers as much as anyone. I like the guy but him and some picks a small price to pay for a premium player at a premium position. If anything we can be grateful to him for being good enough to be considered a piece in this magnitude of a trade.

We picked up a QB/LT/DE/CB?

Peppers had a good year, and honestly I expect him to make a couple Pro Bowls in his career.

But having a Hall of Famer at a more important position is just...better.

Thank goodness Browns fans do not have to pretend to like him anymore.

It’s true though...Peppers was one of those guys where Browns fans talked themselves into him being better than he really was, just because he played for us.

I'll always roote for Peppers. Dude was really coming into his own last year and I loved the way he played (except for the punt returns).
