Bowman has 2, Brooks has 3.5, Justin has 2.5, Ray Mac has 1.5, Dorsey has 2, Lemonier has 1 that's not really a non existent pass rush.
Its not really about "sacks," per say. Its about the lack of constant pressure we would get with the combo of Justin and Aldon working the Oline. Also, sacks are nice, but when was the sack made? A sack on 3rd and whatever is far more important than just some random sack at a random moment of the game. The bottom line, Aldon created a pressure that had a physical and psychological impact on the opposing QB/team. I don't believe we have that, right now.
Edit: I don't even like looking at sacks. I want to see QB hurries and pressure. This is something we don't have in a four man front like we use to.
