Wu needs to play more than 51% of the defensive snaps.

JOK should start in a limited role. Let him focus on a limited package or playbook, and as he excels at those things, add more to his plate. That's how you develop someone and build their confidence at the next level.
That's been my take since we drafted JOK, and I'm glad we're sticking to it. Start small and grow--that's how good organizations develop impact players like JOK.

I still remember all these years we couldn’t run a screen play right. It is so refreshing to see our coaching staff and the execution of our players. Feels like bread and butter now with our screens and makes it look so easy.

Togiai hasn't been active yet this season.

Billings appears to have fallen out of the rotation, but is active just in case someone goes down.

Which pretty much means they both suck. I mean, for a 4th round pick to not even be active for a single game is pretty bad. Of course, on the plus side, we got the Maliks for basically nothing each. But my guess is that before the offseason began, most would have guessed that the two guys who aren't playing would have been far more likely than our current starters to actually play substantial snaps.

This was a perfect matchup to get JOK on the field as a middle of the second level spy. He used his speed and instincts to break up passes over the middle, delayed blitz, and fake middle blitzes to throw off Fields.

I also saw Delpit playing "size slot" third safety here or there. When he was in, Harrison and JJ3 were still on the field with him. This is another new wrinkle we have been waiting to see since preseason.

So overall, I see the Browns saving a few new weapons for the Bears and catching them completely by surprise. I still don't think the Browns ever really needed these new weapons against the Texans. Sometimes you have to save some ammo for later.

JOK is so freaking fast that it would be really easy for him to take himself out of a play with an incorrect read. So I understand why the coaches are bringing him along a bit more slowly than some would like. I still thought he was really impressive, though. He really excels as knifing through traffic to find the ball-carrier. He's so fast sometimes that the ball carrier doesn't get a chance to set up any of his blocks.

Billings is fat and out of shape after skipping last year. Not surprised

I see what they are doing here. It is tempting to put your big dogs on the front seven out there for all the snaps.

Woods has never overexposed any of his linemen or linebackers since taking over the defense. He mixes in the reserves, he keeps the guys who fight through blocks as fresh as he can.

But that doesn't change how absolutely overwhelming this defense looks when JOK and Myles are on the same side of the field. A pair of absolute freaks attacking the same side of the field in both run and pass defense is just too much. Those clips of Myles getting doubled and JOK zipping through from the same side get my blood pumping.
