Lions expect more from Brian Branch in Year 2

doesn’t that apply to any player? to be better than you were a year ago in some fashion?

It certainly applies in the case of the first few years of a career.

Later I think it becomes more about acceptable degrees of decline.

Branch performed at such a high level as a rookie that expecting more means they believe he’s going to make the jump to Pro Bowl-All Pro level. That’s not something one can expect from “any player.”

I meant SHOW improvement, no matter how little -make it noticeable…not necessarily PRO BOWL an that./ any player you been hustlin and busting your ass trying to put in the work, time, and effort-then show something .
