Anyways, I think we all know our 3-4 isn't a prototypical 3-4 with that monster NT. Therefore, in order for us to get pressure, we will need to blitz a lot but not just blitz, we will need to run a lot of stunts as it is appearing that Manny is not a very good 1-on-1 rusher. Who knows, Ahmad Brooks may come out and we already know Parys is good for at least 8 sacks. Also, this preseason, Willis hasn't been playing. If you don't think that is very important, well it is. He's just about THE best defensive player in the league and he gets a lot of attention.
We will need to manufacture sacks with scheme and without Willis, it is a lot harder because with him in there, the offense must concentrate on him a little more.
I have a feeling we will be applying more pressure this game or when regular season starts.

This team ain't going to the playoffs with only one player (Haralson) who can SACK the Q.B.
Season after season, decade after decade, one common theme with our 9ers....
Our Q.B. gets sacked
their Q.B. does not!
If you recall, for the last several seasons we all said " well, when the regular season starts, our sacks will improve"
uhmmm no... we simply dont have the Sack skilled horses.
But we did improve.
