As a pass rusher, yes. So far, he's the clean up man........ make him step up man, but not consistent.

I didn't think he was a liability in the run like many were saying & his +1.1 as a run stopper helps support that.

Now, against Indy, Tennessee, & New England, it is possible the plan was to control the QB more than to sack the QB. They were probably supposed to shrink the pocket making sure Luck, Locker, & Brady didn't get out to extend plays. Might see some of that again this week against Ponder.

So his pass rush numbers may be suffering for that.
