Thread: The Truth About DT!

  1. #11
    It was a down year for everyone, even JPP. I think it is more important to have a push up the middle on passing downs. That will be much more effective in helping us get off the field after 3rd down.
    Do not feed the trolls.

    Linval was the only guy on D at the top of his game all year.....tough to stop the run on your own when you're getting doubled.....and if you are getting doubled as a DT you're doing your job......second and third lines (backers and safeties) have to plug the gaps created by occupying blockers.

    When the DE's are playing like Tuck, and the DT next to u is a 7th rd pick bc everyone else got hurt, its gonna be extremely tough to make plays and yet LJ still did.
    Agreed.. Joseph was actually the guy i wanted in the 2nd rd when our pick came up for exactly the reasons hes showing to be a good pick so far, and thats being able to fight doubles and get occasional sacks, while being a space eater at the same time.. He has a nice overall game, and isn't a one trick pony.. Thats how he was at East Carolina as well... I used to see that big boy chasing around QB's and be like, dang!, this big guy can move and will be a beast in the middle of a dline.

    I actually think our edge pass rush was actually greatly affected by the lack of push by the DTs. It was way to easy for QBs to step up in the pocket and avoid the edge rush.

    I thought Linval and Prince were the only 2 defenders who I can confidently say had a solid year last season

    I hope you had in mind when we basically had only him and Kuhn taking tons of reps early in the season. He took a brutal beating early so no wonder why he probably why he wore down. He will have a good season with some depth.
