You watched last season right?
Tell me something... What you just described about speed rushers allowing the qb to step up in the pocket... Is that what you actually saw happen last season? Was the pressure flowers gave up negated completely by Eli stepping up in the pocket?
From what I saw... absolutely NOT! Eli got the ball out of his hands as quickly as any qb in the league.. Yet he still got CREAMED after every pass play.
This notion of speed rushers not being as disruptive as bull rushers.. I just don't see it. Not least year. Not on this team.
I get what your saying in a theoretical sense... But in reality it just doesn't matter.
(BTW when deihl was playing this was before macadoos quick paced scheme. Eli held on to the ball longer back then. Just another factor to consider when comparing pressure given up by these players.)
"I hope we re-sign John Jerry"
haha...I said this to myself twice in the last two years
"Damn...who's going to replace Newhouse"
"we need quality LB's"
