    PFF is horrible with their judgment stats. Brees wasn't pressured anywhere near 45% of his drop backs.

    Tremendously bad website to quote stats from.

I'd rather let Stevie Brown & Co. go after the errant passes myself.
    Is that right? Did you see the Texans put Brady on his *** repeatedly and hit him over and over Monday night? Brady still shredded them. So I would argue I'd rather sack the damn quarterback than have him complete the pass under pressure. I will say Brady looked tougher Monday night than when we hit him in the past.

    I'm starting to get the opinion that the senior guys on defense - like Tuck and Osi - sandbag it a little in games they know they don't need to win. And then, when they get backed up (e.g., Green Bay, Saints), they fire up.

    Again, I could be totally wrong.....but in Osi's case especially, I think so. Look at last year, for example.....when they really needed him, it was "Classic Osi". But in the "throwaway" games, he was the invisible man.

    So, I think it's almost going to be a nod-nod-wink-wink deal with the defensive line.....they are going to look at the calendar, see Redskins and Dallas on their ***, and say, "let's crank this up and nail down the division."

    most great QBs shred blitzes and man to man coverage. They may get hit but more times than not they make the plays.

    sandbagging may be a bit harsh. But they do seem to come up big when it really matters the most. Like they are conserving their energy. Gets annoying....

    Im tired of people ragging Osi and Tuck, and calling their sacks "luck" or "in garbage time". Osi was consistantly double and even once I saw a triple team on him. Tuck gets bumped a ton from a TE or RB. Are they in their primes? No. But they are still providing us with a threat, even if they dont get to the QB, they give the opportunity for someone else to.

    I see them coming on strong again down the stretch. Wish we could see more Tracy though to see what we have in the future with him.
