refreshing to see such a highly touted incoming freshman keeping up with a Walter Camp " National Player of the Year"/ Biletnikoff " top receiver" candidate. Not taking away from Funchess by any means because he had him beat in the first place, but I agree with you 100% solely on Peppers closing the play immediately.
Even for a 17 second video, it was quite a site for sore eyes.

Marcus Ray said he watched J. Peppers practicing for the first time yesterday at the UM facilities.

He teased that he would go into it at a later date but noted that he is "the real deal".

They later were discussing someone's top 100 CFB players list for 2014 - (only Clark and Funchess made it) - and he said he would be surprised if Jabrill wasn't on that list by the end of this year.

Trying to hold down expectations.....

Every year there are hype videos where the offense makes a great play or the defense makes a great play.  I'm never sure whether to be excited or disappointed. Finally a video has both players playing great. These two could both be the best in the B1G at their positions at some point in their careers.

1. Funchess is huge

2. His route running is even better

3. His hands are better

4. Jabrill has excellent size

5. He can stay with elite route running

6. Funchess is HUUUUUGE

Also, that was NOT a terrible throw because Devin Funchess.

It's a good catch, but I think most receivers can make one handed grabs like that (especially with no helmet or shells). What most receivers can't do, is be that tall and have that wingspan.

I'm glad he's on my team. I'm a little worried Funchess is going to be a bit uneven, posting some big-time games and some duds. But woah, he is our best outside receiver since Braylon, sorry Manningham, if he can be consistent.

Note: with all love to Jeremy Gallon's heart and production, Funchess is 9 inches taller and might be faster.

If you post videos to YouTube and you turn off the ability to play on mobile go kick yourself.

If there is a good reason that's one thing but the only reason I know of is because of as revenue and that's lame! Not blaming the poster I'm just ranting because I can't watch the video!
