    Let me first say there aren't really any HUGE stand outs so far. While Derrick Johnson does have an appreciable lead over Ware. He has 2 forced fumbles and 22 tackles in 3 games.

    I think the problems with Ware are the same with the entire team. The team needs to get things together and start making more plays.

    no rookie has more than 1 pick, or 1 sack, but the range of top 5 rookie tacklers is 29-16. Ware currently has 9 tackles.

    We need our defense as a whole to stand up. The secondary needs to stop giving up big plays. And we need to get into the backfield more.

    Edit here are our defensive rookie stats:

    DeMarcus Ware - 9 tackles, 7 solo, 2 tackles for loss, 1 sack
    Chris Canty - 6 tackles, 4 solo, 1 sack
    Marcus Spears - 5 tackles, 4 solo, .5 sacks
    Kevin Burnett - 1 tackle, 1 solo, 0 sacks

    I think one thing to note is that their numbers would obviously be higher if they were getting more plays.

    I don't really care if any of our rookies wins DROY. The bottom line is that we've made a major upgrade to our defensive front. Last year our starters were Leo Carson, and M. Wiley. This year, everyone on our second string line is more talented than they are.
