The true elites Staley faces every week. Davis gets the 2nd tier pass rushers. So you guys aren't comparing apples to apples.

Anthony Davis shut out Matthews in his rookie year. He knew Matthews was going to use his trademark spin move and was ready for him that day. I saw Matthews overpower Staley rather than beat him with a quick first step in game 1.

I re watched the game for any Clay v AD matchups this year. . Mathews was at ILB on two plays. One he came around the right side on a twisting blitz. The line played it nice but that was it.

I'm not sure I follow...

Are you really taking into account straight line speed for an Offensive tackle? If you would've said Staley had more lateral quickness than Anthony Davis, and that is why Joe is on the left and AD on the right then you'd have yourself an intriguing argument. Can you clarify?
22...Just a baby and not even physically matured. By the time he reaches 25 he'll be a 7 year vet with the strength of a demi-god....
