I am going to go out on a limb and say were are not getting enough sacks.
I don't have the numbers, but it did look like Chappell got hit a ton. I think our pressure and blitz packages were good at getting to the quarterback.
My question is this...if we are getting decent pressure or at least a bunch of quarterback hits (some of them after he released the ball and illegal) why aren't we getting more sacks?
I would say its b/c our secondary is playing too soft. I got sick of watching the QB get hit as he threw the ball to a reciever with a DB playing a soft 5 yards behind. If the secondary played a bit tighter we may give up a few more big plays, but I would think we would also get a bunch more sacks. I say this b/c in the split second the QB has to decide if he wants to throw all he sees is his own player, if there were a DB in the area he may think twice pull the ball down and take the sack. Thats just my opinion.
I know our Defensive philosophy is to make a QB beat us, but we shouldn't make it too easy for them.
