Dupree is playing a lot better lately.  Anyone else notice?

maybe not.  He's playing better against the run and seems to understand his assignments better.  I'm going with just maybe he's starting to come into his own.   We need him,  badly

Yes he is playing better. I just wish he would improve his inside counter move when rushing the passer.

That's unique to the line he's playing against.  

He's improving.  All the better.  Watt raises his game.  With Cam and Tuitt - maybe we have the start of something good.

The problem is when he is run up the arc, he’s no longer in a good position if the QB bails out of the backfield, or the back is used on a delayed handoff.

He is of little use if he can’t turn the corner and is driven 10 yards up field. What he needs to do if he can’t turn the corner is to hold his ground at no more than a body width deeper than the QB so he’s in position to contain the player with the ball.

That said, I agree, he is coming around nicely, rounding into a solid player.

A straight line is the shortest difference between any 2 points.
