    Last time i checked the defense has 11 guys on the field. To blame ONE GUY is senseless. The D as a whole isnt playing good, though they looked sharp at certain points tonight.

    Wimbley's doing his job. We're not bringing a lot of pressure so all of the D-Line's sack numbers are down. The QB is getting the ball out before the line has a shot at the QB.

    Wimbley never got to the quarterback vs PIT, but his nine hurries constantly had Ben Roethlisberger on the move. via PFF

    Not sure if anyone has PFF Signature Stats... but it seems our boy Wimbley is top-5 in the NFL on QB hurries, just can't get the sack. I wish the NFL/ESPN kept "hurries".

    thats b/c all he does is speed rush to try to go around the lineman and every time he is so far behind the qb b/c all the qb does is step up in the pocket and all the lineman does is let him go way to far pass the qb!

    They don't keep it, because it's not a real stat. A near tackle is not a tackle. You gotta finish. you gotta have the real threat of a sack to be a threat at DE.

    my point was he's not completely sucking. He's getting to the QB, just not finishing... needs to finish

    It's all good. Not ragging on you at all, but counting QB hurries is like counting a QB's catchable passes that get dropped or deflected.

    The lack of a pass rush is our #1 weakness. The defense only has like 2 playmakers (McCarthy & Casey). We need to just blow the whole D up and start over.

    That being said, I freakin' wish Clowny from South Carolina was old enough to enter the draft this year. He's EXACTLY what we need at DE. He's a grown man playing against children in college. To me he's a more athletic Jevon Kearse. He would come in and make an immediate impact.
