There is no doubt that some of the sacks are "coverage sacks" just like some of the ints are due to pressure on the QB. You can't have an effective D with out a little of both.

I think the bigger thing than the sack and pressure numbers is the fact that the pressure is coming from more than one spot. Noted that the Dline rotation was better this season, it is showing as we are getting pressure along the front and from the edges. This makes the blitz packages more effective.

We are not dominate, but we are definitely getting pressure.

gonna have to disagree here.

while the sac numbers are up, which is a great sign. GB is still not putting on consistant pressure.


It's been consistent enough. They aren't going to be putting pressure in the QBs face on every play and especially not when teams are using extra protection. If the other team is using extra blockers and the pressure isn't getting there it's still a win because some of their weapons are being taken away. The pressure has overall looked really good this year to me.

I don't claim to be a mind reader, but I can almost guarantee that the opposing QB has CM3 in the back of his mind every single snap.

Sacks are sacks. The numbers don't lie.

That said, we still haven't sacked opposing QBs as much as we've allowed sacks. This has got to change.

It's been solid. Not to overlook these next few games but we'll really see where we are at when we play the Giants. They seem to try to keep everyone in to block Eli and he avoids the rush pretty good. It'll also be a challenge for the DB's but If we come out with 2-4 sacks and a decent amount of pressure.

Having said that, the Houston Texans have a very good O Line and we passed that test.

It's also a win when teams back off the vertical game and go to more 3 step drops, quick screens to the outside, and to their running backs out of the backfield.

We got burned on one big quick outside screen last week but I would much rather see teams try to beat us like this then like it was last year when they were lighting the DB's up downfield and converting way to many 20+ yard plays.

The only time I see that now is when Capers goes to that stupic 3 man rush.

should never be getting beat over the top in a 3 man rush. If you play a sound zone coverage aspect a 3 man rush is a decent play for 3rd and forever. I wouldn't get carried away with it though. I'm one of those guys that likes a 4 man rush minimum. If it's a 3 man rush I'd like it to be a surprise element like a safety or linebacker coming from another area.

The important thing is that it is better than last year. The good thing is that it should continue to get better as our young player gain experience.

Green Bay is leading the league with 28 sacks. Wow.

Offtopic but we are currently tied for 4th in interceptions, but 7 behind the leader. Waaaaaay down the list in forced fumbles. We also have 0 defensive touchdowns, while Chicago has 7.
