    Your first quote didn't include this snippet:

    So he showed up and didn't pay attention to football enough and then he felt abandoned by someone, maybe Bill Davis, or maybe NOT Bill Davis.

    The article doesn't directly say it, but it is HEAVILY implied that Baron Browning got some freedom from his dad who made him work hard constantly and started slacking...

    So he starts to play better under an easier system and when he actually starts to work hard again.

    And it’s not like that defense lacked talent around the LBs...

    DE Nick Bosa (before injury) (1st Rd Pick)
    DE Chase Young (1st Rd Pick)
    DT Dre’Mont Jones (3rd Rd Pick)
    DT Davon Hamilton (3rd Rd Pick)
    CB Kendall Sheffield (4th Rd Pick)
    CB Jeff Okudah (1st Rd Pick)
    CB Damon Arnette (1st Rd Pick)
    CB Shaun Wade (projected 1st Rd Pick)
    S Jordan Fuller (6th Rd Pick - starter for the Rams)

    There is absolutely no excuse for the LBs to perform as poorly as they did. It’s honestly quite impressive how badly Davis coached that group lol.

    OR the Linebackers they had struggled to run the defense that the defensive coordinator runs.

    And Browning still wasn't a starter last year.

    I mean I respect the mental gymnastics - but I can promise you that you are reaching. Good luck finding any Ohio State source to back up your logic.

    Plus - it wasn’t just Baron Browning who had issues. The entire LB group struggled as a unit. Did they all just stop working hard? Isn’t that on the coach to get the most/best out of his players?

    I mean Ohio State rotated LBs, like they do most positions, but Browning most definitely played the majority of snaps.

    I would say that 11 TFL & 5 sacks in 11 games is pretty damn solid production - especially for someone who primarily lined up at MLB. It was no doubt a huge step up from his previous seasons, and he just looked like a different player. I’m not really sure what argument you are trying to make.

    Ohio State went from having some of their worst defensive seasons to being historically great - despite minimal change in on-field personnel.

    Let’s not forget KK didn’t win in college, so is he doomed to fail in the NFL. Comparing college results to the NFL often is confusing. I do know Davis was a good enough LB coach to be promoted to DC. As to developing Simmons it’s too early to tell. In game 1 Simmons overran the back he was supposed to be covering. That’s not something a rookie wouldn’t know. He just made a mistake. Right now Campbell has played far better than expected in coverage. I say wait at least until a few games into next season to decide how good he can be. I earlier posted a few people aware of camp performance felt he might change positions. Again time will tell. This guy is too good an athlete to write off this quickly.

    Chris, I'll be happy to take a break. But I do ask you to read the fourth (I believe) post in this thread where my post was described as a dope response. Only asking for fairness.

    Dope means "Nice". But you attacked his post originally and kept going at it.

    Well I guess that you are right and Simmons is a bust.
    I'll make a deal with you. If Simmons turns it on this year or next then we can all agree that you are a bust. See how that works?

    Urban Dictionary is a good guide to what all the kids are saying.
