    The one where Ware and Vandercarr say all you needed was the helmet flying off?
    It was more dramatic on the radio but still wonderful

    This isn’t good enough for me anymore. We need sacks. Sacks ends drives.

    Will got doubled quite a bit, and was getting close.

    Getting close is valuable. Causes the QB to drop eyes, be late to the ball, etc.

    Sacks will come as he refines his moves and learns what moves work for him.

    He is a terror against the run already.

    Trust me, I’m watching. We are getting close but not close enough. We aren’t putting them in 2nd or 3rd and distance enough. A sack outweighs a pressure by a ton.

    A pressure can turn in to a pick, etc. So that isn't necessarily true.

    Anderson was really good against the Saints.

    If he doesn't try to rush inside, I think he'll be great

    Yes, that’s true and I’m not saying he wasn’t good. Are you ok with just pressures?

    is sacks not dependent on whether the QB just happens to be looking your way? Tough to sack a QB who watches you beat the lineman right in front of him.

    So he only rushes on one side? We gotta stop with excuses. A pressure doesn’t stop a completion. A sack does. We need more sacks.

    no I think he tends to rush on the inside such as the video above which makes him more visible.

    He also rushes from the blind side and has a great bend/dip move. Just has to finish more. We need it.

    #70's technique. Usually the holds that don't get called happen inside the pads. The around the necks are so blatant and visible but here we are. Definitely cost Area 51 a sack or 2. And they've been "blocking " him around the neck since week 1.

    This sounds pretty identical to Clowney…

    not saying Will is doomed to be just another Clowney.. but the stats and the excuses are sounding pretty alike in this instance haha
