I can agree with this. JPP's our only DE who's doing anything this year. but man, Osi and Tuck have sucked. This is probably our biggest problem going forwards, hopefully when Canty comes back, things improve, which they should.
bunch 'o shock friggin jocks on here
we dont win SB 46 without him ... and ask a team like the Eagles how many 1st round picks they would give up for 1 Lombardi trophy ... im guessing between 5 and 10
Maybe Prince needs to throw him into a cold tub to wake him up :p
Because our defensive line depends on one player only - JPP.
For anyone thinking that JPP has been off his game, e seems to be attacking his man pretty well. It's the rest of the defensive-line that's been awful.
It doesn't take one guy for the defensive-line to be good. When you're rushing one side and getting no help anywhere else(no distribution), JPP will seem like a slacker.
I still think Tuck is trying to get some of the "dirty jobs" done (in terms of contain etc.) but Osi strikes me as only being interested in the Hollywood plays that gets him numbers and kudos.
It's a team game and JPP and Tuck are team players, but the point about getting an effective pass rush is valid, especially with the beat up secondary.
That's right, because great players make everyone around them better and clearly the guys around him aren't better!
this was a sarcastic thread title, JPP's still a beast.
