Favre had too much time, and so did Ryan.
We blitzed in the Rams game a lot, and got loads of sacks. I don't know why we stopped.
In a 3-4 defense a 4 man rush is a blitz
In vino veritas
I don't agree with you.
Most commentators use the term “blitz” to indicate that five or more are rushing the passer. In a 3-4, there are almost always at least 4 rushing the passer. Seven people in coverage, that is the standard, that doesn’t change just because you three DL instead of four. Any time I see some sort of statistic about blitzing, it’s defined as five or more players rushing the passer. I don’t think this debate will ever be answered, but that’s my opinion.
