Default Besides Watt, D-line simply just not getting done this year

If they don't blitz or J.J. doesn't get pressure then pressure is really non existent. We have been getting away with it because we have faced the likes of Gabbert/Tannehill/locker/Sanchez. If this team is gonna make any noise in the playoffs, Barwin/Reed/A. Smith are going to have to step it up. Simple as that.

I think we can pretty much count on Barwin doing absolutely nothing all year. I trust Wade to figure something out.

I'd try Mercilus and Braman at this point .

Well, what in the hell is Mercilous going to do?? I mean, is that guy even up to snuff to play like a real NFL player? That's a serious question, because I haven't seen or heard his name at all this season hardly. Is he really that bad at practice that our coaching staff won't even give him opportunities to make plays? Hell this is a #1 draft pick. Normally these guys are starters or at least playing half the time.

You guys may not like what you're seeing from Barwin, but Mercilous obviously isn't doing anything to give the coaches any confidence.

Antonio Smith had an ankle injury and was probable.

Barwin , Mercilus , and Braman have the same number of sacks .

I don't really care about sack numbers completely. I just want to see constant pressure. Sacks have always been somewhat of an overrated stat to some degree. QB hurries is the real indicator. I'm not saying that Barwin is playing just fine, but what the hell is going on with this rookie? This Mercilous guy doesn't seem to have any confidence at all from the coaching staff.

When we made the merciless pick A thought actually popped into my head that it was a panic move.

Like they were expecting someone else to be there but when they weren't they panicked and picked merciless.

I've been against that pick since it was first announced and I could never understand it. He had good numbers in college, but I when I watched the film he had 0 burst, was not aggressive. Didn't play with a lot of passion. He does have a decent motor, but to me that's his best attribute.

The few times I've seen merci in the game he's looked worse than he did in college.

I honestly expected more out of barwin. But after watching him this season I'm honestly ready to see Braman.

I'm pleased with reed. He has played his position well. He is the solb and he sees a lot of runs at him.

Barwin is the wolb and is supposed to be your sack guy. He looks rather regular.

Barwin needs to stop focusing on being a hipster ********* and blogging for the Houston Press and focus on actually showing up for games again.

Don't know about practice, but he's looked awfully timid the times he's gotten in the game.

I hate to say it, but he looks soft.

Wade is going to have to do something.

Cushing would rush some too though.

Really this is the only game our pass rush has looked bad and frankly I think Wade called a scared game today.

Also Barwin sucks.

Sort of my initial thoughts from what I've seen as well. Haven't seen him enough though. I haven't heard anything about practice either. I just figured that he must not be showing jack at practice for him to be absent from the field so much.

Would very much like to see Brahman get into the mix.
The kid really brings the hat.
Intensity is what we need badly right now.
Would be nice to have somebody other than JJ come to play some football.
