Find me a LB(excluding P-Willie) who can run stride for Stride with a Great TE and intercept the pass in a diving fashion.....than Ill agree
One int in 3 years. Big whoop
This. However, Lawson is one of our key players against the run.
I was looking at football outsiders stats and our defense is ranked near the top in terms of stopping runs to his side. We are terrible in stopping runs to the other side...Parys...no speed...
We need to lose Parys, use that money on our strong strong side guy, Manny, and work on a "real" weakside pass rush.
Yes, thank you! Manny Lawson's job isnt to get INT's ..But he is good enough to use him that way(That's why he is a keeper). His real strenght is run stuffing and if you watch Niner games he's always right there to wrap up or stop a player for a loss. I believe he had 2-3 tackles for loss on McCoy in the eagles game, and McCoy is a speedster.
Yeah but he bit hard on that double reverse yesterday.
Dude does not fit the 3-4 system, in a 3-4 the OLB must be a good pass rusher and thats something Lawson is a FAIL at.
You dont sign a OLB on the fact that he's good "run stopper".
Lawson needs to go
You officially do NOT have a clue to what you're talking about.
I'm now convinced that you out your ass parroting what other people say.
But hey let's look at the fine points here.
Manny SEALS his edge. This is first and foremost his RESPONSIBILITY as the Strong Side Backer. He allows Icebox to take less blockers and vice versa Icebox allows him to get into the backfield. They work great together. But his primary focus is to keep Runs from gaining traction. This he does extremely well and THIS is what you PAY for.
Sacks are a secondary Focus, when you KNOW that the Back is not coming your direction then your focus shifts to Pass Defense. Manny has quick awareness to allow him to identify the Ball Carrier so he goes to the ball no matter where it is. I often see Manny on the Weak Side because he's got cover speed to burn.
YOU PAY FOR THIS.
Turnovers is something Manny is ALWAYS looking to create. And he does it.
YOU PAY FOR THAT TOO.
If you cannot look past Sack stats then just stop talking cause I'm getting fed up with your myopic BS susweel.
Your an Alex Smith fan so Im not even gonna bother arguing football with you.
