I think we will see a drop off when some guy trying to make the team does too much and does not contain.
I dont , he was probably the most consistent player on the DL last season - Not the best but the most consistent.
BTW , his job is not "plug a hole" in this version of the 3-4. He's asked to penetrate and shoot gaps vs both the run and pass. Wade's is a one gap system not a two gap which would be what you describe.
Yes , he does his job well ... If he misses significant time , one of the other guy's will really need to step up their game.
