That sack by Shelby was a great play. It doesnt get talked about because it didn't make the stat sheet due to penalty, but he crushed the QB.
He looks better than Jordan when they're both out there.
who's not looking better than Jordan right now?
In all fairness Shelby is going into his 3rd year and didn't have any expectations placed on him. Jordan has been a big disappointment but this isn't an apples-to-apples comparison.
He has been playing like that for a while now during preseason.
I hear what your saying but I only go by what I see. Could care less about the expectation. I still think Jordan should be playing LB anyways.
Between Shelby, Fede, OV, and even Jordan we should be fine at DE even when Wake's play starts to decline due to age.
With Wake, Olivier Vernon, Shelby, Fede, we should have a decent DE rotation.
Is Chip Kelly still interested in Dion Jordan?
He may end up there next year if he fails to impress this year. Fede could end up getting more run at DE than Jordan...who knows. But then next year he'll be a year behind McCain who is basically doing what Jordan would be doing...then what. He can't crack the starting lineup at DE over Wake and Vernon and may not crack the starting lineup at linebacker behind McCain and Tripp...now you have an overpaid #3 overall pick who's nothing more than a backup.
