you started with mariota, dont play dumb
Who was the QB during the Colts game?
Did you even read my post? I said interior pass rush is more important than edge IMO. Pass rush is a top need of course, But Landry/Finch/Wake > Jones/Johnson
I ignored your point because theres a premium on edge players
You can get good inside rushers into the 3rd most yrs
Gotta play the draft, not just fill needs
Edge 1st, interior dl round 2. Or vice versa depending on the draft!
“Allow luck to stay on the field” is a Mariota thing?
Edit: or Gabbert?
Kearse was injured quite a lot also...just saying.
Yes. If you are constantly giving the ball back to the other team because youcan't get a first down, you're keeping him on the field.
People forget that Landry sacked Luck on 3rd down and got the ball back for us when we were down by 1 score in the 4th. And the only reason we were in the game at that point was because of a pick 6 which resulted from PRESSURE. And that after Gabbert basically handed the ball to them in the red zone, Landry again took Luck down on 3rd down at the LOS (essentially a sack) and gave us at least a sliver of hope in a 10 point contest, IF we had a QB capable of playing at even a reasonable level.
We held Luck to under 40% conversion rate on 3rd down. The defense did a much better job than anyone realizes, especially considerin we were missing 2 of our best players.
Meanwhile, we were 1 of 9 on 3rd down. Let that sink in, and everyone consider who we should be pointing fingers at.
Also, people need to relax with the blitzing complaints. The best DCs are commended for their blitzing packages. Every single team does it, and we had the best blitzing ILB in the league last year, and another who could be even better. It is a waste to not use that to our advantage, especially since it creates uncertainty with the opposing offense and QB.
There was only one freak.....
Thread is poorly titled. Edge is most certainly a need but Danger isn’t wrong that interior is also a need. A good interior rush can be just as effective.
It all depends on how the draft goes. I would take interior in the first if BPA is interior but I hope we have a shot at a solid edge starter in the first.
