So, to me, JJWatt, Antonio Smith and Kareem Jackson are our trifecta of guys that really pushed their play up a notch.
i would say antonio was one of the few (along with GQ) that maintained their good standards from last yr... so by my count, you have 2 that improved, 2 that maintained and 9/10 (inc brice & demps that played worse)
dont even talk about offence though. DB, myers and maybe aj & od had better/same yrs. everybody else... worse.i will say arian ran tougher v the colts than ive seen in a while. hopefully he was saving himself for the playoffs
