5. Pressure players

Sacks are important, but so are QB hits and hurries, forced fumbles and recovered fumbles. When it comes to overall pressure on the passer -- adding the above stats to sack total -- here are the top players in the NFL who disrupt the quarterback and affect the game the most:

LaMarr Woodley, Pittsburgh: 21
John Abraham, Atlanta: 20
James Harrison, Pittsburgh: 19
Charles Grant, New Orleans: 17
Aaron Kampman, Green Bay: 17
Mario Williams, Houston: 17
Albert Haynesworth, Tennessee: 17

Woodley, Harrison and Haynesworth all are on their bye week; I wonder who takes the lead next week.
