Parys is better at what??
I love both of these guys but Manny can rush the QB,cover RB's,TE's,and even some WR's(remember the int against STL covering Bruce?)make int's,block a FG and has more speed and range.
Parys make look like a better pass rusher(8 sacks) vs Manny(3 sacks) but that is by design because Manny is expected to more often than not cover those TE's,RB's,etc.Parys cannot cover like Manny can.
With that being said I hope P.Haralson will record double digit sacks next year playing/starting a full season(he has the potential) and Manny will be fully recovered and continue to play at a high level.
I truly believe these two can become Pro bowlers.
And for those who say Manny Lawson is bust after playing in only 32 games,starting 24(and being productive in those games) really shows their lack of insight and knowledge of the game of football
Rush the QB???? Not in the NFL he hasn't. Haralson is easily the better pass rusher. But I'd give the edge to Manny in coverage and SP team play. Against the run, I'd say they were about even last season.
Simply put,Manny can do it all,including rushing the passer
.Up to this point they haven't used him as the primary PR and probably don't plan to.But yes "he has rushed the QB in the NFL"(3 sacks in 08,2.5 in 06).
I'm not knocking Parys at all,in fact I've liked him ever since he was drafted and not just over the past year.I could tell from the beginning he has the talent.
Yes Parys is the better PR but also that is what he was primarily used as after Sing took over.Imagine how many sacks he could get playing the whole season!In the run game if the RB gets by Parys he doesn't really have the speed to possibly catch him from behind,Manny does.
Manny and Parys were not utilized correctly under Nolan(idiot) but will be under Singletary.If you noticed,after Sing took over both started and played in every game the rest of the season.
Manny and Parys are both young(24,25) with alot of talent and are only going to get better and I'm glad we have both of them on our team along with Willis of course!
