    Basically a
    position change in a shortened off season when he has hardly rushed from a stand up, its not about want but relearning how to rush.

    They were trying to give Jaylon help because he's a liability.

    As he has with so many others in the past.

    D-Laugh is too busy tweeting about his toys and making boasts about what’s to come, but does nothing on game day.

    If Aldon is our best player then we’re not that good

    Yeah I think Dak and Zeke are better among other guys. All the receivers are as well.

    Thought we were talking about just on the defensive side. Whole team then yes just about every offensive starter is better than every defensive starter lol

    Oh on defense....ehhh....through two weeks I can't argue Aldon is better. Not really like anyone is lighting it up over there....YET. The secondary is going to get better as the game goes by. This defensive line might be what it is.

    DLaw is pretty obviously hurt, since he only played 28 snaps last night.

    Exactly. I don't know how people can't see we are playing most downs with 2 DT's.

    28 snaps from DLaw. Is he hurt or did he get benched? Either way, we are paying $20M for a run-stopper with a loud mouth. His pass-rush was non-existent yesterday.

    Its because of Nolan. This is the worst time to convert a defense from a 4-3 to a 3-4. Worst!

    Anae wa such a game changer at Utah. I'm not saying he is ready to be a starter. But being a huge Utah fan I've been looking to see him get some snaps. I know he can make plays.

    Your right. This would be very interesting to see when Gregory finally plays. Would they really bench a guy making 20 mil a year but providing very average passrush on the outside? Stay tuned.

    That's why I hate all of this, "Next Guy Up" stuff. Some things are so dumb on the surface of it all that we really shouldn't need to have major conflict over them, as fans.

    But we still will...........

    Maybe just rotating DLaw out more, and more often on passing downs. He does give pretty good run defense. Gregory, Smith, and Griffen look like a good DE rotation by themselves.

    Lawrence was a 5-sack guy last season. His problems pre-date the scheme change.

    Moreover, you don't make big-picture scheme decisions based on preserving the ability of a guy to continue to eke out 5 measly sacks in a season.
