I specifically mentioned the edge play...How do you figure? Bad??
Even with 0 help....
The secondary is elite.
LB is average.
DL is average.
So at worst, we will be slightly above average. Now you add defenive pedigee coach Flo, how can it be bad?
Just don't understand the logic behind your view.
To wit... no Van Noy. No Lawson. No replacements. ...and even with these two, pressure was only marginal. Our Edges are not average... they are bad. We have one decent rotational edge... Ogbah who is only a 9 sack guy.
Our Linebackers? Baker is okay... McKinney can stop the run... Van Ginkle shared a job with Van Noy last year with Van Noy getting about 75% of the downs, and Van Ginkle getting about 50% of the downs... you'll note that this adds up to over 100% of the snaps... because on many downs, they both played... so don't be one of those folks who think VG will just fill VN's absence. Math says no. Overall, our Linebackers are below average... as are our safeties.
You don't understand the logic, because you REFUSE to look at the actual players who will be playing. You've gotten caught up in the magic beans and Flores hype.
