    In 2 games for 2022 DLaw has 10 tackles, 1 tfl, 0 sacks, 0 qb hits, 0 pressures......so I'm not sure what you are talking about.

    Then DLaw needs to give Parsons his contract since his extension was based on him being a sack guy.

    That is simply not true. He is not getting the sacks, but he is still one of the best run defenders at his position in the league. The DL is a lot stronger with him in their.

    Correct in a 4-3 base defense, problem is we don't play that much anymore especially on passing downs, we kick him inside and Parsons takes the edge, he's more of a 5 tech D-end in a hybrid 3-4 now.

    Try to keep up bro

    Bingo. He is not an outside pass rusher anymore but he's still fast and strong enough to play inside and disrupt the run or tie up blockers for Parsons.

    The last play of the game for Cin offense, where Diggs made the big stop...that was a pressure by D Law

    2021 rushing yards against Dallas with and without DLaw in the lineup:


    Without (7 wins 3 losses)

    257 carries 1,128 yards 9 td 4.39 ypc

    With (5 wins 2 losses)

    172 carries 790 yards 2 td 4.59 ypc


    So based on your statement Dallas should have been much worse against the run without DLaw being in the lineup yet stats show Dallas was actually giving up more yards per carry WITH DLaw in the lineup than without.
    So is that type of production worth the $25M cap number DLaw counted against the Dallas team salary in 2021????

    Dlaw reworked his contract he was about 10M against the cap in 2021

    $25M cap hit in 2021 and $14M cap hit in 2022 ($26M cap hit in 2023).....based on your statement DLaw is now more of a run defending DT so do you really think he should be getting paid what he is for the production he offers???? Especially seeing as how the run defense was actually better last season when he didn't play?????

    He reworked his contract in 2020 and then again in March 2022.

    "Lawrence’s 2021 cap hit, which was $22 million, is now $25 million. His 2022 hit is now $27 million (from $24M) and his 2023 hit is now $28 million (from $25M). He now also has a 2024 cap hit of $3 million despite not being under contract."

    He was doubled a lot if you actually watched and that freed up other rushers.

    deja vu all over again

    I remember some of these SAME excuses being made about Almost Anthony Spencer

    great against the run, takes double teams, frees up other, etc

    They were wrong then and are wrong now.

    DL is simply overpaid for what he actually DOES.

    Offense needs to move the chains more. The D was out of gas & because of it, Dallas almost lost the game.

    Yes he was definitely getting some nice push and blew up several running plays to his side. As fans we seem to only pay attention to sacks.

    Doing the dirty work deep in the trenches is never glamorous. He wasn't penalized and I know he made a couple run stops so as far as sacks that doesn't seem to be his game. He eats up blockers apparently so others can feast.

    He plays the run very well but doesn’t get after the QB anymore for some reason. His big contract was for his ability to get after the QB not for playing the run well. He is not worth his cap hit.
