There were times when we questioned, Joe Haden's abilities to be a shut down corner in the NFL. Those questions are quickly vanishing, with the performances he puts into every game.
Haden's enthusiasm should be contagious. If the rest of the Cleveland Browns played the game like Haden, it's hard to say how good this football team could be. Haden brings it on every play.
He completely shut - down A.J. Green on his home field in Cincinnati yesterday. Dalton refused to throw the ball in Haden's direction after his two interceptions and a touchdown scored on one of those interceptions.
The Cleveland Browns defensive secondary is greatly improved over what we saw last season. This group of guys are developing the chemistry needed to intimidate the opposition. Haden's ability to change the game is outstanding, and he is quickly making himself a Pro Bowl selection with the season he is having.
Somehow, the rest of the Cleveland Browns need to find a way to bring Haden's intensity to the field with them. Specifically the offensive line. If these guys could play with this kind of intensity, it would greatly help this team to win more in the NFL.
If there is a guy who should be a team leader it is Joe Haden. His will to win any given battle that comes his way, makes him an invaluable member of this Cleveland Browns team.
Somehow the others need to learn from how prepared Haden is, and get to this level themselves. If they could carry out this, the team would be a winner.
