Really hard to find pressures and hits stats unless you pay for it. I know McDonald and Aldon had a sack taken away do to 5 yard illegal contact penalties. Would have made 3 sacks, 1 ff and a tackle for loss (on tebow) for Aldon. Would have been 1 sack for Ray. Brooks had 1. (3 sacks total, would have been 5) RJF did well holding his own...45 rushing yards on 17 attempts. Not sure about the pass...
edit: as for justin and the guys... really hard to get pressure when it's 5 vs 3. best thing they can do is get their hand up if they can't get to the ball. They did a good job of it and dl in general are becoming better and better at that. As for justin the guy just turned 33... he goes hard but he could be saving it for when it matters most. like in the playoffs he was unstoppable. he would probably wear down if he did that all season long
edit: not sure if I mentioned Justin and Ray both batted down passes and Ray's led to an INT
