    Griff is playing well for the most part. I am not unhappy with his play so far this season and I think this is because we have a pass rush back. He needs that pash rush to be really effective and he has been, Love our defense as a whole!

    He hasn't been "great" or even "good' the past 2 seasons....He has improved big time from the past two seasons...also helps when he's asked to do what he does best.

    I think he has played well. He as been really active coming up on the run and he has been a better tackler. Given how many bad angles/bad decisions of his have given up big plays over the last few years, I'm fine with him hesitating a bit and making sure he gets the tackle.

    I thought his "leg dive" was pretty weak yesterday. His comment about risking the penalty/fine was pretty telling.

    He needs to spend more time with Pollard.

    When you're playing 25 yards off the line it's hard to make mistakes.

    There's nothing wrong with booing players who deserve it. When Britt screws up over and over, you best believe I'm gonna be booing. 50K+ fans showing their displeasure will have an impact.

    Though I think booing players out of the gate is a bit much. Every game is a fresh start to play well.

    The entire secondary has improved greatly. I think it's a mixture of interior pressure from Hill (Johnson) and Casey, Pollards leadership, and Gregg Williams.

    McCourty has become one of the best (if not the best) shut down corners in the league. Verner is opportunistic. And as mentioned, Griff has really come on.

    Griffin is playing decent but he is still overpaid. We need to restructure his contract next offseason to get his cap number down some.

    Probably just need to replace him.
