    Regardless, Smith was on the field for more passing downs.

    And you proved my point by saying the he is the one people game plan for. Butler can't be considered a "pass rush specialist" when he was on the field for an average of less than 10 plays a game.

    huh. Could have sworn it was 49 and 54.

    Still does not work out. If pressures were supposedly a measure of getting to the QB, then why does Spencer have only 6 Sacks vs Ware's 19.5?
    And Ware was injured for part of the season.

    So by the numbers you would think the ratio's of both would be approximately the same.

    Yet Spencer got 30% the sacks Ware did but almost 70% of the pressures of Ware.

    Does not add up.

    My only guess is that a sack only counts as a sack and not a pressure? So really DeMarcus should have 19.5 more pressures. Thats the only thing that makes sense to me.

    It's because DeMarcus Ware is one of the best pass rushers in the history of the NFL. Anthony Spencer is not in the same tier, and that was the purpose of this thread. Everyone wants sacks, but there isn't a viable option that could outproduce Spencer and warrant the 14th pick in the draft.

    Here's the breakdown since ya'll are confused:

    Ware - 450 pass rush snaps, 85.6% pass rush, 19.5 sacks, 8 QB hits, 43 hurries, 71 total pressures. Productivity: 12.9 (4th/31)

    Butler - 123 pass rush snaps, 79.4% pass rush, 3 sacks, 4 QB hits, 9 hurries 16 total pressures. Productivity: 10.4 (10th/31)

    Spencer - 407 pass rush snaps, 72.7% pass rush, 6 sacks, 9 QB hits, 35 hurries, 49 total pressures. Productivity: 9.3 (15th/31)
