You can't rely solely on scheme to get pressure. You have to actually have some talented guys out there that can consistently beat the man in front of them.
In terms of what? I know wades last season in sd, they had 61 sacks as a team. They also had a offense that averaged 30ppg. So what happens? The defense gets to bring the heat consistently. Look closely at the raw facts about the 61 sacks. Merriman had 17 and phillips had 11.5. Next person on that list is castille at 7 sacks in 10 games from the lde spot. If u look at those sd teams, phillips was pretty even with merriman on sacks and castille was chipping his in those also. In dallas, the best defens he ever had was 09 and not the year ware had 20 sacks. The year ware had 20 sacks and the had 58 or so as a team, they gave up 22ppg. Even more than that, they only had 8 ints and 16 ff which is low for a team wth 58 sacks.
