So far, our game plan is to not play our best pass rusher. It worked against the Rams, I don't think it will be quite as effective against Houston.
Sometimes change for change sake wins. messes up the other teams scouting reports. And keeps Fangio from sending his best pass rusher on his best stunt on all pass plays (i.e. to NEVER CHANGE ANYTHING!!!).
Do some research -- when was the last time that our D had 5 sacks not including ASmith. We should do it more often. We need to get ASmith to ADD TO the totals not REPLACE the totals. IMO.
ALso, our run d seemed to have a little more impact --- that's probably the Rams just stinking though.
