Although it seemed like the opposing QB's have had all day to throw, our defense hasn't blitz much in the preseason. I look forward to the sack totals rising as we enter the regular season. I guess it would have to because it couldn't get any lower.
Except... we have said the same thing for the past decade or so, that being "once the regular season starts, our Sacks we come".
If you don't have personal who have the talent to Pass Rush, get there and actully knock the crap out of the Q.B. pre-season or regular season , it ain't going to happen.
3 pre-season game with ZERO sacks my friends is not a good sign.
We haven't had 7 ints in a preseason in years so that arguement doesn't hold any weight. Any person that has played football would agree that pressures are just as good as sacks.
