Scouting the Browns? Preseason opponent: New York Giants

- Our Q&A with Big Blue View On Thursday White Genard Avery Jersey , the Cleveland Browns begin their preseason on the road against the New York Giants. To help preview a few topics from the Giants? perspective, I reached out to Ed Valentine from Big Blue View and exchanged three questions with him. Enjoy!Chris: ?Tell us a little about the biggest position battle the Giants have going on right now.?Ed: ?The biggest position battle is probably at free safety next to Landon Collins. Darian Thompson, Curtis Riley, Andrew Adams and Michael Thomas have all gotten first-team reps. Veteran CB William Gay has also gotten a look there.?Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY SportsChris: ?Pat Shurmur was named the Giants new head coach this offseason. How have fans and players taken to him in his first training camp??Ed: ?Players love Shurmur. I don?t know why it didn?t work out for him in Cleveland. He won 9 games there in 2 years, and after the last 2 seasons he looks like a miracle worker. He?s honest, he?s genuine, he treats people with respect. All of those are upgrades over the last head coach.?Chris: ?Tell us about one player on offense and one player on defense who Browns fans may not have heard of, but are players to watch on Thursday.?Ed: ?This time of year is always about the young guys. On offense Youth David Njoku Jersey , you probably know about Davis Webb but he is the guy Giants fans will be watching closely. Is he the heir apparent to Eli Manning? On defense, third-round pick B.J. Hill has been a real surprise. He figured to be a backup nose tackle, instead he is a starting 5-tech DE in the 3-4.?This preseason Q&As are always fun for me to do because while I am much more concerned with how the Browns? players will perform, I like having at least a baseline knowledge of the other teams? primary competition and a few under-the-radar players.Their free safety position battle seems wide open, which might benefit WR Antonio Callaway if he were to play (stretching the field). At this point, who knows what the deal is with him.Ah, the good old days of Pat Shurmur. I?m sure he has actually learned a ton of valuable lessons from his time with the Browns. At this point, the ?why was this coach bad?? starts to fade from memory a bit because we?ve had so many of them ? all of the awfulness just blends together now.Thanks again to Ed for taking the time to answer our questions. Jabrill Peppers has started playing self-defense.The Browns defensive back said Thursday ??his 23rd birthday ??that he has stopped going out in public by himself in downtown Cleveland following hostile confrontations with fans unhappy with the way he's played.Peppers said he has endured verbal taunts and some joking in the past http://www.authenticsclevelandbrowns.com/cheap-christian-kirksey-jersey , but that lately some of the encounters have nearly gotten physical."When you walk up on another man, that's a hostile situation," Peppers said following practice. "For me, I have way more to lose than the average guy. So it puts me in kind of a funky situation where I can't even go get daily toiletries or things without having to worry about something like that."Peppers did not give any specifics about the altercations. However, on Wednesday he told the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram about an "aggressive" exchange in a drug store where "my boy had to pull me away one time."Peppers said he has been confronted numerous times and believes some of the grief he's taken is because he went to Michigan and plays in a city where rival Ohio State fans are abundant."Sometimes it's more so jokes, but as of late it's kind of a little bit more different situation than just verbal," he said.Peppers also tried to clarify comments that Browns fans are "very, very wishy-washy." The former Michigan star said he wasn't referring to die-hard Browns fans White Chris Hubbard Jersey , but rather to an overall environment that exits in Cleveland ??and other cities."This is the NFL and that's how it is," he said. "Love you when you're doing good, and they don't when you're not. We know we have to play better. Obviously, I wasn't talking about the fans as a whole ??just more so the environment of an NFL franchise. We understand the city of Cleveland loves their Browns and wants to see us get back to how it's supposed to be."But that's just the NFL. They love you when you're doing good or not so much when you're not."Peppers said he has taken to covering up when he's out shopping, but that hasn't helped much."I don't want to walk into a store with a hoodie on, that's just bad manners," he said.The No. 25 overall pick in the 2017 draft, Peppers has not lived up to expectations and he knows that's at the root of the backlash he's getting from fans. He's been moved around in Cleveland's defense as the Browns try to figure out how to best use the 5-foot-11 Youth Myles Garrett Jersey , 215-pounder who was one of the nation's most impactful players in college but hasn't had close to the same success as a pro.Peppers has also struggled returning punts and kicks, and his lack of production has drawn the wrath of some Cleveland fans. He understands it's up to him to change the narrative.But despite the recent negative experiences, he has not soured on playing in Cleveland."I love the Browns. I love the city," he said "I love how passionate the fans are and part of what I get is my fault."I'm not playing up to my potential and they see that as well, so you can't fault the people for feeling how they feel. You just gotta take it with a grain of salt and do what you gotta do to get better." Custom Green Bay Packers Jerseys
