No he really hasnt, last season was his worst season for giveaways and lost defensive assignments since his rookie season. GO look at the GA/60 stats for last season. Almost every player took a massive dip when paired with Gagner. The whole blaming his linemates for everything negative with his game for the last 6 seasons has been proven wrong many times and is getting old.
