Dorsey seemed (this is not a technical term) more like a fatty, while Suh seems a little better built. Also Dorsey is now playing DE in a 3-4 when he should be a DT in a 4-3.

Interesting, GB is doing the same with Raji, haven't heard much about him either.

To go one step further with that moving Aaron Kampman to OLB has been a disaster for them as well.
------G--GS-Comb-Total-Ast-Sck
2009 9 9 42 30 12 3.5
2008 16 16 62 47 15 9.5
2007 15 15 64 48 16 12.0
2006 16 16 89 59 30 15.5

His sack production has fallen off tremendously

It may have been a disaster for Kampman - but for the defense as a whole, they went from 20th last year to 2nd so far this year. That's a huge swing.

the Dom Capers factor..

In total yards yes, but if you look at Pts/gm we are beating them and they are rated 19th in sacks.
Alan Branch is another DT wo hasn't made a ripple let alone a splash. Suh sure gets some good comments on alost all the draft sites.

Don't be fooled Glen Dorsey we willhear from.

He is a huge man. Just because this is his first year and he plays for KC we don't hear much from him.

But after a season or two he will be recognized. He is to good at what he does not to.
i remember when alan branch was a god on the zone

Yeah, but why else do you think GB db's are having great years?
Suh is bigger and the better prospect.
