The Dline is going to feast the rest of the season

A 30 percent pressure rate for two linemen is a great sign or things to come.

But as others have said, it's also reliant on who you're going against.... Chandler Jones had 5 sacks because he was going against a gimpy shouldn't have been back Lewan.

 

Who you line up against changes each week

The pass rush was also very good vs the Cards but they weren't able to rush as much and Murray escaped so much pressure.    The pass rush looks to be legit 

The pressure rate Autry and Simmons got against SEA is astounding. Both hitting around the 30 percent mark.    Looking at the schedule, there is only BUF and KC with legit elusiveness at QB.

Ofc. That’s why my numeric prediction on sacks was just for the next 3 games.

 

Overall though, Simmons and Autry are good enough to go toe to toe with any interior. They may not win as often but they will get wins.

These numbers confirm how I felt after the game-- that the DTs were collapsing the pocket and providing the pressure. I didn't see the OLBs winning 1-on-1 battles though, and I don't see explosive outside pressure. That's still going to cause us issues if we have to rely on the DTs every game to generate pass rush. There are better interior OL than Seattle, and teams will adjust and give their interior more support. 

Wilson is not as fast as KM. For the most part the OLBs were in a containment mode while the middle pushed. If you watched, many times Wilson had no place to escape and had to just eat the sack.

All 3 times?

What did you think of the game this past weekend? Second half defense was money. Ya feel?

 

It seemed good, but I also don't know how much Seattle adjusted to being on the cusp of a blowout.  I was flying, so catching updates via ESPN rather than watching. 

 

 

The thing about pressure, especially interior pressure, is that it can be schemed.  For example, we are facing the Colts this week and regardless of QB, they will run the ball and probably use screens and other quick passing concepts to mitigate any potential interior pass rush.  I think Autry and Simmons will struggle to 'feast' on that, which is the point.   

 

The game will come down to 3rd downs on defense, our offensive being less predictive on first down, and if our kicker can be moderately dependable...as every game does in the Fisher Vrabel era.

Pass Rush Win Rate through week 2 (ESPN): TB-63% LAC-62% NYJ-60% BUF-58% CLE-56% CAR, LAR, LV, PHI, PIT: 54% ARI-52% TEN, WAS-49% DAL-48% SEA-46% JAX, SF-44% MIA-43% NO-42% NE-41% GB-40% CHI, NYG-39% BAL, DEN-38% ATL-37% CIN, HOU-36% MIN-35% IND-34% DET-31% KC-26%

 

Tied for 12th. Not world breaking but better than next to last.

Disappointment if they allow a ton of points to the struggling rookie qb's.  They need to get the easy wins before the Bills/Chiefs/Rams (with a Colts game stuck in between) portion of the schedule.

 

As far the edge guys go, I still find it really difficult to grade/assess Dupree since he may not be 100% yet.

The OLB starters are barely coming off the field. Sound familiar?

They are playing well, so Weaver is gonna be buried.

Someone will get nicked up sooner or later and he’ll get a chance to shine (like Krunk just did…..and Molden…did not)
