It is really hard for me to support starting anyone over Manny. Do I think our pass rush is lacking? Of course. But while Manny is not tearing up the stats sheet, he has been quite valuable on defense in regard to stopping the run and staying on assignment which allows other guys to make plays.
Sacks is a sexy stat and sack master are usually not that great at stopping the run because they don't recognize a run play thus leaving gapping holes for RBs to run through.
If we draft a pass rusher, he will likely split time with Manny such that Manny is in during first downs or short yardage situation and this pass rusher is in during 2nd or 3rd and long.
