    I don't judge corners by picks and I don't judge De's by sacks for the same reason. Very rarely do either of those plays occur do to an incredibly athletic play. Usually the guy making the play gets a huge amount of help from the other defensive players. Most picks happen because the QB is under duress and most sacks happen because pressure was coming from more than one direction. I judge a guy by how well he does his job and the h=job of a DE is bigger than just getting sacks, impactful as they may be.

    Morgan finds some ways to skew stats into making it seem like he doesn't suck.

    But he does suck and is usually non-existent on Sundays.

    This guy is always around the play. Stout vs the run and pressures the Qb often. Love Morgan!

    We better keep him, Verner, Pitoitua & Pollard.. Have a bad feeling we won't keep all 4 though.

    Morgan can be replaced with any draft pick. Would probably get far more of an impact player with anyone drafted in the 3rd.

    Hell, Lavar Edwards could take his spot.

    I'm not gonna say the dude has been amazing by far. He doesn't flash to me at all. Pitotuie is equally as good as him IMO.

    I just think we have been drafting the wrong style of DL for awhile. Morgan included. The league is much more affected by the lengthy types that can bat down balls and create havoc with throwing lanes.
