It's definitely a concern, but I don't think sacks are as big of a deal as many folks do. I think the fact that we're one of 5 teams who haven't thrown a single interception is far more important and a significant factor in our 2-0 start.
And a big part of not throwing interceptions is knowing when to just go down to the turf and eat the 5-7 yards in a sack instead of trying to make something happen when there's nothing there. Hill's good at that.
True, but what is concerning is that Hill is getting stripped of the ball and we have been pretty lucky to recover these balls.
What I'm not sure of is, is there an issue with Hill or the WR's getting seperation? Is our offense lulling the WR's to sleep b/c they are primarily being used to block? It appears that if Hill does not throw it within 3 seconds, we're in big trouble - sack, strip, scramble, tons of pressure, negative yards, etc. However, if Hill does complete it within 3 seconds, it's almost always a completion and it appears our WR's are wide open!
Thoughts? I need to watch the game tapes again anyhow...
