    Jerry's contract disasters put to book form make War and Peace look like a seat back pamphlet you look through on an airplane.

    They're just looking at just the sack numbers. Would agree that he has been a bright spot on d this year.

    Worst post ever. DLaw has been a force against the run and is consistently harassing the QB. If DLaw wasn't on the field teams would be gashing the left side of our line as bad as they are gashing Quinn, Armstrong and Covington. Dude has been a stud!

    The extreme ignorance around here is breathtaking.
    Demarcus Lawrence PFF = 87.7, which puts him at "pro bowl" level.

    Only a fan who knows nothing about football would think DeMarcus hasn't played very well this season.

    Hes 1.5 sacks behind mack and has a ton more assists. If anything mack was traded for and lawrence wasnt and were getting a better deal.

    A good run stopper is a dime a dozen...seriously. Why do you think pash rushers that produce more sacks get paid so much more than run stuffers? It's not a good justification for his contract value at all.

    I've watched him. I see his stats. Both tell me he's a good player, but nowhere close to the #1 d-lineman in the league like his contract indicates...that's my point. It's a bad value.

    Also, not to disregard your PFF reference, but their rating system is completely nebulous and inconsistent. It's a data point, but you need a correlation of other data points. He won't make the pro-bowl. That's a data point that indicates he's not the #1 d-lineman..or a top #10 d-lineman for that matter.

    Against the run, yes. I disagree on his pass rush. It's definitely not the same as previous years. Still a good d-lineman...but he'll quickly become just another solid starter if his play doesn't improve. That's great, every team needs them...but not for the most guaranteed money in the NFL.

    5 sacks is not exactly what Dallas was paying for,and sack numbers were used in negotiation tactics by Lawrence,as well as delaying surgery. Thank gosh old mom told him to knock it off and get busy..he’s been playing better since he has. Still like Zeke...their contract negotiations made for a preset sub par outing situation. I didn’t like how those got handle one bit. Best DE players category shouldn’t say 5 sacks at this point,where’s his agent interests now? It wasn’t for him. It’s like paying a home run hitter to hit 15HRs. No,I don’t care he fielded well or ran bases well or walked,you pay for HRs. Well he knows that....I’m almost certain it irritates the hell of out of him. I bet he gets 20 sacks next season...I do. He’ll he mad he finished 10 or under. Good!! Don’t screw around in off season next time...same with Zeke,it matters,matters how the team plays. Put your football before your money then it’s all good.

    Thanks for posting this. Yes, exactly what I'm saying. His pay is far too high for just a "good" d-lineman...just my opinion.

    LOL I saw that typo. My bad, I was flowing. I meant 25...

    Lawrence has been playing lights out the last few weeks. It's not only about sacks. It never has been with Lawrence. He's an all around all pro and I have no problem with the contract. In a year or two it won't even be close to the most money a DE is getting.

    LOL. Yes, I am using a POS phone to type these comments. If I had D-law money this wouldn't happen. More ammo against him....
