Yes he may be a Mike Vrabel type eventually roaming around the field, but damn it, just leave the man on the line with the occasional drop into coverage.
- He is bigger and stronger this year (which makes him a better candidate than the last year version of the full time end)
- Players like RVB noted after the last game that the 4 man rush was getting good pressure
- I can't seem to recollect any highlight plays he has made 4-5 yards off the line as opposed to splitting a ND double team to make a TFL
- He has freak ability rushing the passer and should (should) be better at the point of attack against the run since he gained some weight
We are 1/3 into the season and I struggle with the concept that I feel we are limiting his potential with a scheme. I know, coaches know best and maybe he is sacrificed to cover up the deficiencies of the overall unit. However, I believe this is a special player that is very good at screaming around a tackle to collapse a pocket and good schemes adapt to a player's strength.
