Anyone else a little bit concerned about the lack of pass rush the last 2 weeks?
No we played to playoff caliber teams the last two weeks that have enough talent to pickup the blitz and they both have quality offensive lines and the quarterbacks get the ball out of there hands on time which makes it hard when it comes to getting sacks.
I sorta thought we weren't blitzing as hard so that we could move our LB's back into coverage a bit more to protect against us having to put too many points on the board with our third string QB. Could be wrong about that but it seems like our line isn't doing big blitzes like we had been before earlier in the year.
We may likely to see more blitzing against Panthers and Colts though.
Go Texans!!! AFC South Champions!!!
Don't care if they blitz or not as long as they keep winning games :P, Although it would be pretty damn sweet to put pretty boy Locker on his ass half a dozen times or so.
Just because they've only had 1 sack over the past two games doesn't necessarily mean the pass rush isn't effective. The front seven is still getting pressure causing hurries and knockdowns which still helps out the back end.
said all along it will be against playoff calibre teams that we will miss mario not against the jags or browns or the like
The pass rush has been really good, not great.
Put it this way...QB's are not sitting back there comfortably picking us apart like the old days...
Pretty sure every QB we face feels the need to get the ball out on time.
This play didn't result in a sack, but you can obviously see that it is pressure.
The pass rush? Are you serious?
The pass rush is main reason why we are AFC South Division Champions with a 10-3 record.
I know it's been great all year but there has been a drop off in the last two games.
They make plays when they have too. The sole sack Sunday was a huge play. May have saved the game.
I feel this is a fair assesment. When our D was getting tons of sacks, we had an O that could make up for any big plays given up by the D. With our O before, the D could pin thier ears back and play a little reckless. Now it seems we are playing a tad conservative. It has worked thus far, so I won't knock it, but in the playoffs we will have to gamble a little more.
Although I will say I thought I saw a lot of 5+ rushes the last two weeks they were just picked up, but I don't really keep count.
Hey. . .
I think we're keeping Kubiak for the 2012 season. Just sayin'
don't you mean omt...oh my tebow
Dalton was getting the ball out pretty quick, when he had to pump or take an extra second we got there.
Not worried, although Brooks Reed was worrisome, getting pushed back by a TE.
Atlanta has given up the 11th fewest sacks and Cinncy 3rd.
...it's not that far fetched...Just saying...
We haven't missed Mario this entire season. And you're logic is flawed because it doesn't matter really what team we play as far as whether we'd be missing him or not, it matters who would be blocking him or who would be on the other side making Mario their assignment on any given team. We could be playing a great team that has a poor blocker or lineman and we could also be playing a really poor team that happens to have great protection where Mario would be coming from on his blitz. The mulitple guys we have had coming in and out this year has been far more effective as far as a pass rush goes than any season we had Mario out there.
Which sounds good except even moving into a different position Mario was being more effective this season as well.
Plus, while I think Smith is playing very well he has disappeared since Mario left - 4.5 sacks in 5 games with Mario, 0 in 8 games without.
