well he does lead the team in qb rushes
just cause he hasnt had a sack doesnt mean hes not habing massive games
Our sack total is down all over the field but our pass defense has improved greatly, lol... explain that one.
It is down for JS and McDonald (.5 total
) but not for the LBers. Brooks has 4 (7 total last season) and Aldon has 7.5. That said, their TFL's are up (essentially a sack) and Brooks alone could have 10 if he could finish and on a few of his "tackles" the QB gained a yard or so (pseudo-sacks). So the point is, they are getting pressure...getting their numbers but really, they aren't getting the hits, pressures and finishing with sacks on a consistent basis
. We made a late season push last year so perhaps the front 7 will go on a tear during the second half this season as well. Bowman has a couple sacks and Willis has none but they have been getting lots of pressures/hits when they are released so that's encouraging as well. Come on second half push!
