Re: Body Language - JJ Watt
JJ having worse stats is expected since teams play him differently this season. What is telling is when you have one guy absorb that much attention in the middle of the line you expect your edge rushers to beat one on one matchups on the edge and you expect the other linemen to excel because there are not enough offensive linemen to double anyone else.
Reed sets the edge well but he doesn't rush the passer well. Whitney Mercilus is great in pursuit and down line but he doesn't set the edge well and is an inconsistent pass rusher. Sharpton/Mays can't shed a block and are good back up players but not starting caliber. Earl isn't a two gapper so he can be single blocked fairly easily.
