    Tank is a good player. He does a lot of good things. Just not a great player.

    If sacks mean everything, Shaq Barrett (14.5) and the Buccaneers must have a dominant defense.....right?

    Like I said, don't get caught up in numbers. If Dallas cut D-Law today all 31 other teams would put in a waiver claim. If they made him available for trade, multiple teams would offer a first round pick.

    Agreed, unfortunately PT Barnum (Jones) paid him like the best DE in the league......idiotic...

    wish people would stop defending him, he is just average at best.

    Because our defensive line is so stocked with talent we don't need D-Law?

    Let's put Kerry Hyder, Dorance Armstrong, or Joe Jackson in there?

    Bottom line is he's not getting it done. With that contract, you expect way more than to just have him open it up for the guy on the other side and play well against the run. Pressures don't really mean squat if u don't get there or have them lead to turnovers.

    You can't have a guy taking up that much cap to do what he's doing.

    If he's opening things up for Quinn to get through, he's getting something done.

    BB has let more talent go on the d-line than we presently have. Can't pay good players #1 money.

    He’s 11th in TFL with 12.5, which is more than Quinn. I get that’s not a sexy stat to those that are somewhat oblivious to many of the other duties of a DL, but that’s a damn good number on a team that has shown it’s not really as strong against the run as the “stats” say. Because, there’s quite a few stats that this team has this year that don’t mean squat in the grand scheme of things.

    Tank is a very good player that is having a nice season, particularly against the run. However, he doesn't look like an elite pass rusher in the mold of the greats. Tank said it himself to be elite you need 10+ sacks every season. Still time to get there with a few big games, but believe Lawrence's skill level is somewhere between Greg Ellis and Demarcus Ware.
