    Teams will not be able to run outside on us with Ayers, Casey, Ropati, and Morgan manning the DE/OLBer spots. Those are some solid edge setters.

    My concern is can we stop the run up the middle. I see Pollard dropping into the box a bunch to help solidify the inside run game.

    Hes more than alright. I really dont get why people hate on Morgan, he stops the run on the way to the QB, no DE in the world is getting to any QB when we're seeing throws being made in 2.5 seconds

    Hate comes from being a first round pick but never producing like a first rounder.

    If he were a 3rd round pick, we'd probably be lenient on his "solid" play.

    Should be more than solid when you're drafted first.

    You mean aside from all the guys who do get to the QB? Yeah, aside from those guys you're right.

    50 guys had more sacks than Morgan last year. 50. 25 were in double digits.

    No man alive can get 5-yards behind the LOS in that time frame, the guys getting high sack totals are forcing the QB's to hold the ball longer, Jerry Grays philosophy was flawed, hanging back and giving free yards makes all your pass rusher look bad. You of all people here should know this.

    Jurrell Casey didn't have any trouble in the same scheme.

    Cool story, bro.
