Re: Is Wade phliips holding back?
Is this thread because our OLB's have about 1.5 sacks in between the 3 top guys (Reed, Barwin, Mercilus)? I don't think Wade intended for JJ Watt and Antonio Smith to be the top two sack guys on the defense this year, but it's not as though the play of the DL hasn't been effective.
I haven't seen any breath taking blitzes or exotic stunts, but we have brought 5 or more enough times this season and I know they've done twists and stunts up front. One guy who hasn't rushed the passer as much as he did last year is Brian Cushing, and I wonder if it's because we all shudder at the thought of Bradie James in coverage on a TE.
