We Need Elite Pass Rushers

Lol so predictable. Go look at other teams pass rushers, some goods ones have been drafted. We suck at drafting pass rushers recently. We could at least try and trade for one. 

Unfortunately it is hard to get  bluechip premium pass rushers in the 2nd round and beyond.

Not a day goes by where I didn’t wish we had a Bruce Smith on this team. 
 

 

 

Great, let's just mosey over to the Elite Pass Rusher tree and pluck a couple

 

I mean, Bruce Smith?  Beane probably stays up nights wishing we had Aaron Donald as well

You can't just go get elite pass rushers, but i'm certainly hopeful we bring in fresh legs next year.., especially if this issue persists all season.  

 

You can get guys like Alton Robinson in the mid-rounds.  I was hoping we'd snag him and now he's earning PT in Seattle with some impact plays..

 

Impact.  Plays.   

 

Gone are the days where defenses can smother the opposition.  You win on defense by making impact plays.. sacks/fumbles/interceptions.

 

For as bad as we were last night, the Titans got an early 7-0 lead due to a turnover.  

 

For as bad as we were last night, the Titans were about to have a war going into the 4th quarter if Butler doesn't intercept Allen.

 

It's all about those impact plays. 

 

 

 

Yep.  The D is sorely in need of play makers.

They let two pass rushers walk out the door and if anyone says jerry Hughes is a pass rusher, he has been using the same moves the past three seasons it's time for him to go.

How are those 2 players doing for their new teams?

 

I will wait

look lol.. we are building a team. A team comes in parts at a price. do we need better on both sides of the line? yep we need help. you can bet we get better on both sides through fa and draft.. not early\ mid season trades\acquisitions.

 

BUT. If we manage to beat KC and win though to trade deadline where theres a pass rusher out there for trade that may push us to the big game? i can see it happening.

Also,  let’s end the Epenesa comparisons to Maybin.  Epenesa has 1 sack thru 5 games vs Maybin’s 0 sacks thru 32 games.

Yeah but Maybin can gain or lose 20lbs in a day.

I apologize in advance, I have not read the entire thread. Did anybody put up a list of teams who do NOT wish for elite pass rushers? 

 

I’ll hang up and listen.  :)

 

We had to go roughly 2-14 to get the rights to draft Bruce, I think. I’ll pass on that scenario. We need to find some young gems cheap as the old guys age out. It’s a legit need, but they don’t come cheap unless you get lucky in the draft.

I'm talking about continuity and being familiar with each other and while you're waiting go and pick yourself up a box of smarts candy from the candy store smart guy.

To win a Super Bowl, you have to have 1 or 2 players on defense that can absolutely take over a game. We only have White. It sucks watching other teams getting 10+ sacks a year from players, but we can’t. 

 

Just like the Rams?

So you are insinuating that things would be better if they were here?

 

Did you factor that both of them were playing for their next contract last year smart guy.....and are NOT doing well for their new teams now that they have it?

 

Would you like me to pick up some smart candy for you?  You obviously need it.
