Default an interesting stat

I was just watching ESPN news and in showed a screen about how the Pats LBs have the most sacks by any core in the league. And to my suprise the texans were fifth in the league with something like 14.4 sacks. Which makes me wonder, along with the 20 something picks by the secondary and LBs, what does this defense need the most?

If this is saying the Texans LBs have the 5th most sacks among NFL LBs, that's not that surprising. How many teams run the 3-4, in which sacks are as much on the LBs as on the line?

Right. For relavance, stick with apples to apples; how do we compare with
the other 3-4 Ds ? Not very impressive on that basis, 'cause from that view we're near the bottom.

The LBs really arent the problem... our LB core is solid. We need a more dominant Dline.

We already have a decent LB corp, the only person I'd replace is Foreman...

To me, it would be more important to get some younger D-Lineman that could handle the O-Line and allow our LBs to get clean shots on the QB...
