Most of the time when he struggles with the rush is when the pocket is blown up from the inside and he has to move out to the sidelines to find a receiver. Right now our only rush is on the edge and with a blitz. Until we can start imploding some pockets from the inside we will continue to give up lots of long 3rd downs.
Vinny can back me up on this when I say I wanted Vince Wilfork from the very beginning. Now we are seeing why. I still support D-Rob though so don't think I'm a hater or anything like that.
