    I thought bennett was also at the 3 as he did get some push and almost made the tackle. either way there is no reason someone doesn't get a hand on the center.

    I could meme the heck out of this image if I wasn't a lifetime fan.

    Notice that 3 backup DL are on the field at the same time. The moment teams see this personnel package they are running to the left side and licking their chops..

    Has our $90 million dollar RB had a 30 yard run all year?

    Less rotation isn't necessarily better, but it's a reasonable place to look into, particularly at DE.

    This 70% rotation needed to be factored into dline contracts. Can't pay full time prices if you're not getting full time play. Guys like Bennett and Quinn fit what Marinelli does. Quality older players who need more rotation, and whose prices reflect that.

    4.5 sacks so far this year by the 100 Million Dollar Man. On pace for 7. Bennett is on pace to beat that in half a season. From DT.

    I think it's Hyder at the 3?

    That's the other side of the pancake with Lawrence. He has petered out in the back half of the last two seasons with health issues. Hard to say that that will happen this year, as he never petered in in the first place. 4.5 sacks so far after 10 games.

    In the last 24 games, Lawrence has 9.5 sacks.

    This is a nice catch.

    But it's not just that they're backups coming in a wave, they're backups with similar weaknesses.

    Covington at 1T, Hyder at 3T, and Armstrong at DE are our weakest players against the run at each position. You can do one at a time, but you can't do them all together this way.

    A team that noticed that players are not interchangeable cogs would know that you can't do this.

    The 24 hrs to get over that game has expired. It's time to move on, we have the Patriots to discuss.

    Its like a disease in Dallas. Guys get paid and they immediately start tapering off. Zeke bugs me a lot more, though. DLAW has put together

    It's that stupid scheme that they run all the opposing team does is have to be patient and wait for them to hit those gaps pick where not 80% of the time we overrun the play and make it even easier for the Run because of that stupid Gap defense now when we played silly we played that sparingly and look what happened

    DLaw had already been tapering off. 5 sacks in the final 14 games of the 2018 season.
    We had all been noticing Zeke's decline by last year.

    Even with the early season injury, DLaw is following the pattern of tapering off after the first 4 games.
    First 4 - 2.5 sacks, 6 hits
    Last 6 - 2 sacks, 6 hits
    Last year, games 5-10 - 2 sacks, 5 hits

    We went back to paying guys for what they did in the past, not what they are likely to do in the future.

    Backups? We need better starters. At DT. The weakness there is negatively affecting the entire D.

    Losing BJones & ABrown, makes getting a starting CB in the 1st 2 rounds more a top priority over safety. We drafted S Donovan Wilson but some reason coaches don't play him.

    Look at where the defense is rated that was just 1 play
