I had hoped Haralson and Lawson would step up this year, from what ive seen, Lawson just isnt an NFL pass rusher, he may be best suited as a 4-3 "Coverage" OLB
and though Haralson provides a bit of QB pressure, he is not good at covering outside runs, and often takes himself out of the play with poor angles
Both are easily taken out of plays by one blocker
Our best pass rusher (J.Smith) has two take on 2 blockers every play since he is a 3-4 DE. the rest of the DL is playing well, and is the strength of our D'
which brings up thoughts about maybe playing a 4-3
Losing Nate at CB has hurt us, and the overall play of our DB's has declined in recent weeks, though it doesnt help that we dont get pressure on the QB
