All I know is that in my mind, I'm involuntarily substituting this thread title for the lyrics in that "What does the fox say" song, and now that's stuck in my head.

So thanks for that OP.

From ProFootballFocus' recap of the Patriots game...
Quote:
De Ja Vu: Outside Linebackers Fail to Produce

One of the most common themes when discussing the Texans is there impressive pass rush from Watt and fellow defensive end Antonio Smith and the inability of the edge rushers to complement their elite interior presence. Outside linebackers Whitney Mercilus and Brooks Reed graded at -2.6 and -2.8 respectively, combining for just three measly hurries on 72 pass rush attempts. The lack of outside linebacker production has been the norm in Houston as Mercilus and Reed have combined to grade at -24.7 on the season, a year removed from the duo combining with departed OLB Connor Barwin to grade at -21.5. On a brighter note, Mercilus and Reed each graded at +0.7 in in the running game, but their inability to affect the quarterback is one of the major weaknesses on Houston’s defense.

Just a question... who is the OLB opposite of Ware? Who was the other OLB in San Diego with Merriman?

Do the Texans ask Reed to rush the passer much?

Brooks is exceptional at taking up a blocker and not letting him go.

Not as much as other 3-4 teams, which is what I've been trying to point out for a while now.

Normal 3-4 teams like the 49ers, Browns, or Steelers have big bodied D-Linemen who plug gaps up front so the LB's can rush the passer.

Wade's scheme looks like a 3-4, but it's actually a 5-2. His D-Linemen rush the passer and the LB's plug gaps. In this case, Mercilus is a DE and rushes the passer and Reed is an OLB and plugs gaps (mainly being the contain guy to his side). Mercilus' #1 job is rushing the passer. Not so for Reed.

Yes, the Texans do ask Reed to rush the passer quite bit. Mercilus has rushed 50% of the defensive snaps he has been on the field. Reed has rushed 43% of the defensive snaps. So for doing this such a heavily percentage of the time he is on the field he isn't doing very well at it....at all.

Reed rushes plenty. He rushes enough to do more than he does.


He's just not that good.

Merciless is better and I hated the merciless pick. Still not very find of it at all, but hey...they have the scouts and resources.

I guess Brooke Reed showed me what's what, he is truly the king of the sack. I liked the scheme to trick the opposing QB to run into Brooke as he handfights through linemen. Well done Brooke!
