    You’re judging someone’s sack ability ( and a DT of all people) based on a 3 man front in a 3-4 in dime situations? Do you football?

    Remember, Dak is a QB who has a tendency to hold the ball too long and take unnecessary sacks. Donald should get 2 or 3 against Dallas. That means the rest of the time they need to make positive yards and avoid the costly holding penalties that end drives.

    The Rams give up 5.2 yards per carry against the run. That's a lot and some argue its because they rush all the time. If Zeke can break a few with Dallas taking advantage of Donald's aggressiveness, maybe then can force him to slow down a bit. In any case, he is going to make plays. They need to factor that into their game plan.

    good try no way to diminish the force he is...hes the best Dlinemen in football..we all know it but with a strong running game from Zeke and Dak plus dak knowing the quick out of your hand passing game and more bootlegs and such ie a moving pocket will be needed to make sure we arent crushed Saturday..the coaches know this they will be focused on donald and sue in the middle with Double teams and make sure we move left and right more to throw..the rams are good, playing at home, were a top team this year and not over hyped..why everyone keeps acting happy we arent seeing the saints..its pick your poison..

    Donald IS that good. He gave Dallas fits last time they played and Fred-Martin were both healthy.

    Judging a player using only sacks is lazy.

    Best defensive player in the league, constantly double teamed and still has those numbers. From the interior.

    Obviously one of the best DL in the league.

    The point the OP was trying to make is that most of those stats came against probably the worst division in the NFL.

    The reason they have the worst run defense in the league is because teams don't try to run on them because they are ususally behind and are playing predictable pass downs. The DL plays most of the games with their ears pinned back.

    They have some great players on the DL. If they want to focus on stopping the run then they will be able to do it. We just have to make them pay with our passing game. We have to keep the score close and be unpredictable with our offense.
    First series just come out and throw safe, short, intermediate chain moving passes until they get out of their defensive game plan. Take some shots down the field.

    Their defense is going to come out thinking that all they have to do is stop Zeke and make Dak beat them. All we have to do is be unpredictable and keep them off balance, and then Zeke can carry the load. Dak has to play like a grown *** man.

    He can mess up the running game too and i suspect wade will want him to play the run more this game.

    Frankly i dont think they care about stopping the run,Everybody is rushing up field ,there is no gap closure and their LBs are pitiful in the run game.

    Are we better using our younger more athletic guard or a guy hobbled with more power? ?? I’ve struggled with this question..

    Aaron Donald is a d tackle/nose in a 3-4 that isn’t even big enough to play that position and he has 20 sacks

    Those guys are considered elite if they get 5

    He is absolutely the best player in the nfl hands down and we need to get a body on him his stats are no where near inflated

    He put up better numbers against teams with bad lines than he did against teams with good lines. I'm supposed to be surprised by that?

    So what you're saying is, if we take out a bunch of Donald's best games, he still was on a nearly league-leading sack pace (9 in 10 games): what a force of nature! Oh wait, that wasn't what you concluded.

    And Dak got sacked more than any of those other QBs.

    He slides outside some
    But I suspect he will stay in front of Connor all day
    He better be ready because cox is really the only guy inside in the same ballpark as Donald

    we just have to double team him and chip him most of the game..Suh is a former shell of himself, but going against Williams may present problems....we need to have a lot of roll outs and get Dak out of the pocket and on the move.
