    Workout warrior.

    I saw him a lot at Tech and all I could think about his draft buzz was "this guy?"

    You guys need to quit slobbing Anderson's knob.



    He could have caught that kick and ran it back for a touchdown.

    JJ ruined us man. I see anderson and go eh he is no JJ yet. He is doing really good things though and hope he develops like JJ and not like clowney who always seemed to be around the qb just not quite fast enough to bring him down

    Anderson is consistently beating him man at an elite level. As the movie saying goes, “If you pressure them, the sacks will come.”

    Will Anderson was getting close a few times yesterday. Issue is that it seems like he was the focus via a second blocker.

    Yup. This is a major reason why our defense has improved so drastically. When you have a franchise pass rusher like Anderson, the D has the choice of either (1) letting him get to the QB; or (2) doubling him, and basically play 10-on-11.

    Yes, think Grennard is really benefitting. Not taking anything away, I think he is doing great, but finally has another threat on the line to free him up a bit.

    "But he doesn't look like JJ WattZ!?!!"

    JJ Watt didn't look like JJ Watt until late in his rookie year or more properly his 2nd season. Sometimes it takes a little time.

    I literally haven’t seen one person claiming he’s not JJ or even complaining about Anderson.
