The next sack Amobi will get will be his first of the year right? He has had a lack luster year so far.
A sack for a DT is pro bowl type numbers. Sacks mean nothing to that position.

Albert Haynesworth begs to differ.

Also, sacks are important to ANY player on a defensive line. If a DT is getting to the QB and picking up lots of sacks, then usually that means he's a complete badass. I can't think of any DT who picked up lots of sacks and wasn't thought of as at least "good" if not "great".

well, to be honest, if Okoye can't play we aren't losing anything. On the plus side, I've stated that we needed a (quality) big (as in supersized) DT to man the middle for years. Guys like that implode the line a few times a game (see Meyers game tape for examples), keep interior linemen off DeMeco, hold their ground in the red zone and in short yardage situations, and make it tough for QB's to step UP in a pocket. I've never understood building a D line for pass rushing situations only...that's pretty much what the Texans did, and that part of the line responsibility isn't very good to boot.
