His sack production relies a lot on the success of the DT's. Actually I think the lack of a push from the DT's this year really affected JPP also. If they can't get pressure up the middle then the QB can just step up in the pocket and beat the DE's every time. Missing Canty most of the year really hurt. Canty was a big force in 2011. Kuhn is not the answer. Osi really flourished with Coefield and Robbins.
I stopped fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.
I see too many excuses. As a QB you are dependent on your wide receivers to catch the ball when you throw it. As a receiver you are dependent on your QB. Your whole offense is dependent on the offensive line.
A defensive end is different. If you want to get to the QB then "YOU" have to beat the guy in front of you. Its no one elses fault if you cant do that. Good pash rushers win the 1 on 1 battles, and even the 1v2's at times. Osi had a bad year and its 100% his fault. Who knows though. He might be able to bounce back next year. But me personally, I think he's at the end of his career.

Don't take it personal, we're just debating.
In my opinion your reading comprehension must be lacking, if you took that quote above as me calling people Osi haters. If i can summarize that for you, it would look a lot more like this, the thread itself is going to have alot of angry posts towards what mara said cause people hate the idea of resigning Osi back to the team. If that makes them haters or just makes them concerned fans that care more about the caps hits than the players needed to win games or vise versa, that's up to anyone's interpretation.
Also I don't know where you get little temper tantrums from, there was not CAPPED! text in that whole post, all of it was factual and opinionated nothing vulgar came across and I didn't start calling people names like you love to do, to make yourself feel big on a message board, then laugh it off as " ah just busting your chops, people can't handle that anymore."
So no FB I will not go down that road with you again and if you have nothing better that idiotic posts about PJ's and a blankey, which is highly disturbing that you are picturing a grown man in PJ's, you can go back to tuning your guitar or something.

Did JPP have a bad year this year as well? and was it his fault?
personally I don't believe in the single blame concept, I think everything has a cause and effect, but you are right 1v1 situations should be won, what masks Osi 1v1 battles that he wins is when he gets blown by the runner to the inside lane he leaves un protected cause he is speed rushing the outside of the tackle, it is extremely more difficult to speed rush from the inside.
But I hear where you're coming from, we will just agree to disagree on the matter, cause I think everyone stunk it up equally this year, and feel its very premature to just blame one person for a unit's failure especially when that person was not a starter. Not saying that's what you are doing but I have seen posts and hear fans do that.
I am ready for Osi to leave honestly so these type of threads can finally go away. I always feel a need to respond to them.
