DOH! I voted 5-6 but that was thinking 5-6 MORE! Didn't notice the OP was Oct. 10th. So mark me down 11-12.

That is all.

I hope to see Barwin, Reed and Watt/Smith get one sack each against Jville, minimum

I noticed that too. I thought he's been playing well. Not better than Reed but pretty well in his own right. He's got decent numbers in essentially his 2nd year and 1st as a starter and 1st year in the right position not some situational pass rusher. I did think he would blow the roof off this year which hasn't happened but he's way, way far away from being a scrub. Reed is about 2 more sacks from de-roofing any expectations for me. FEED THE SACK MONSTER!!!!

Lets not forget that its Reed who is playing the position designed to rack up the stats in this D and Barwin is still playing really well from the other side.

If they do resign Mario (and as I've stated before, I think Mario has the chance to become one of the best in the NFL at that position, but I wouldn't be signing him if the deal can't be made reasonable, there isn't the drop off we may have expected, and the chance to upgrade at other positions surely has to play a factor), but as I was saying, if they do resign Mario, that is one hell of a rotation to have, and possibly opens up some other options like rotating Mario to DE and spelling Watt or Smith now and again as well.
For the season, both Barwin and Reed have 5 sacks.
Barwin has 5 passes batted down as opposed to 2 for Reed.
Barwin has 14 QB Hits as opposed to 10 for Reed.
Barwin leads the team in these last two categories.

Completely agree with the point you're making, everybody seems to have forgotten how well Barwin is playing opposite Reed, we have 3 great OLB's on the team, although Barwin has likely played a few more snaps on the season, his stats stack up, he's disruptive.

We're all excited about the second round rookie doing well, but seem to have forgotten about Barwin who is coming off a horrible injury last year, changing positions, and effectively only playing his 2nd season of football, and his first as a starter. The upswing is there for both players. I can honestly say I won't feel too bad if Mario walks in the offseason, I'll see it as a move to strengthen the team as a whole even though I love what I think he can become at OLB.

Hopefully it gives the Texans some leverage in negotiation with Mario.

Nope, Barwin plays a huge role in my trade Mario scenario.

& I'm perfectly fine with trading Mario if both Connor & Reed continue to improve.

With help, someone getting 8 sacks or so (along with all the rushes, hits, etc... ) I figured Mario would get 14-20 sacks a year. He would be that monster, that game changer we all want him to be.

8 + 14 = 22

So, if Connor & Reed combine for 22 sacks & we get to a spot where we don't have to blitz so much, I'd be fine with trading Mario.

If you've been watching NFLN lately, you'd have seen the talk that the Buccaneers have shown the league how to beat the Packers (even though they didn't beat the Packers). Getting pressure with your front 4, playing man on the outside & zone across the middle.

If you've been watching the Jets over the last three years, you'll know relying on the blitz will hurt you once you start playing quality teams.
