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.
