The problem isn't that we don't have the players. The problem is that we haven't really made any concerted effort to TRY to get the players.
Parcells never got the 3-4 to rush the passer here. Wade couldn't do it. And Ryan can't get it working either.
We get some garbage stats that look OK, but against good teams in key moments, the pass rush is non-existent.
Yet, we have Ware, Spencer, Ratliff (when healthy), Hatcher....we should be able to get some pressure.
