So that means we don't have a dominant pass rusher yet again.
I bet we are regretting signing Haralson to that extension...
I do not understand why it's such a big deal that we do not have a "dominate" pass rusher? I agree it would great if we did and I do hope the team adds one next offseason. But this defense is really good as is, they are very very good against the run (#2 in the NFL) have the best ILB core in the league, the best D player in the league in Willis.
The passrush gets plenty of push from the DL, way more than I expected and it shows how good Manusky/Sing are. Franklin looks like a monster and J.Smith is def a probowler. If the team does a good job at rushing the passer that's all that matters.
Would it be better if we had Jared Allen and he had 11 sacks and the team still only had 16?
