In the 3-4 defense, we're told that LBs should be the difference-makers, forcing turnovers and getting sacks. Ladies and Gentlemen, your 2005 Texans LBs to date, through 5 games! 4 Sacks (Wong, Anderson, Peek x 2 ) 1 Forced Fumble (Peek) 1 Interception (T. Evans) 5.5 Tackles for losses 7 passes defensed (incl. 3 by Greenwood) At random, I compared these numbers to other LBs in the division. Jacksonville's Mike Peterson, by himself, has 1 forced fumble, 2 INTs, and 4 defensed passes. His teammate Akin Ayodele, by himself, has a sack, 3 tackles for losses, 2 forced fumbles, and one defensed pass. Tennessee's Keith Bulluck, by himself, has 2 sacks, 1 forced fumble, 1.5 tackles for loss, and 1 pass defensed. Indianapolis' Cato June, by himself, has 5 INTs, 1 tackle for loss, and 6 passes defensed. Just for grins, I compared the Texans LBs as a unit to Indy's Dwight Freeney (not an LB, of course.) Freeney alone has 5 sacks, 3 forced fumbles, 3 tackles for losses, and 2 passes defensed. Ouch.
