    Crennel seems to be able to find and develop rookies who are much cheaper than free agents

    I just couldn't believe it. Had to read it twice. That's QB hits. Not sacks. 3 QB hits after 3 games.

    That's bad.

    D.J. Reader is the best Texans defender

    Whitney Mercilus got another sack and another forced fumble today, his fifth and fourth of the year, respectively.



    I noted that the quarterback did not step up, but instead stepped back. A big reason for that was that Matt Paradis got pushed right into Kyle Allen’s face by D.J. Reader.

    Reader again was a menace in this game, racking up multiple run stuffs and contributing to the overall pass rush by wrecking the pocket in a game where his teammates had three sacks and five hits.


    Pay this man.

    It is true that Mercilus is having a big year, and when I posted that I thought Reader had been the best Texans defender this year, I got some pushback. But if you look back at Mercilus’ sacks on this season, I think a majority of them actually come because of Reader getting enough push that the quarterback can’t step up in the pocket.

    Do you want to credit the guy who made the quarterback go backwards, or the one who wound up with the sack? What about if the one who made the quarterback go backwards was also a big part of the reason that the Panthers ran it 28 times and only got 94 yards?

    @riversmccown: Week 3 EDGE snaps:
    Omenihu 32
    Jacob Martin 17
    Brennan Scarlett 15
    Carlos Watkins inactive

    Week 4 EDGE snaps:
    Watkins 26
    Scarlett 23
    Martin 4
    Omeinhu inactive

    Odd decrease for Martin. Big increase for Scarlett. Assume Omenihu still takes most of the snaps if healthy this week.

    Think it was gameplan specific with CMC running the ball so much and Martin not being as good a run defender.
