Originally posted by m_brockalexander:In complete "wait and see" mode about the pass rush. There are three levels to this issue IMO:
Ahmad Brooks - he's not dead or forgotten
Aldon Smith - pending a suspension
Relatively sure things:
RayMac - health and age
Cowboy - age
Lemonier - showed well when he had the chance
Bowman - when healthy, one of the best blitzers in the game
Skuta - did OK when Aldon was out
Dorsey - not bad, but not great as rotational pass rusher
Tank Carradine - how good will he be now that he's bulked up to 295 lbs.
Aaron Lynch - can he get his head on straight?
Ian Williams - can he push the pocket when healthy
How this all turns out, I have no idea.
Good summary. TJE seemed to have an impact. Somebody on the team said Ian Williams was an upgrade over Soapoaga early on last year.
Just happy that we still have Tomsula!
