Oh absolutely. Le'Veon said the game slowed down for him about half way into the season and that's when things really started to pick up for him. It's all about adjusting to the speed of the game at the next level. Jarvis had to learn the hard way that he can't beat NFL tackles with just his motor this season. Not only has he fully acknowledged this, but he's dedicated to improving. I love this kids work ethic. Unfortunately for Jarvis, the NFL requires more out of defensive coordinators than "use your motor" like he was told at Georgia.

As for VW, I'm right there with ya. He was improving in coverage to become a three down Linebacker (which we haven't had in years due to Foote's age slowing him down). I think another offseason is going to do wonders for this kid. That is assuming of course that we don't draft Mosley.

Or we can listen to @jb500ex and just cut Jarvis right now because he sucks. Pass rushers have to get 10 sacks in their first year, make the Pro Bowl, become a first team All Pro selection or they can get the fuck out.

Some people.
