Derek Barnett had 2 sacks in preseason opener

Recommended Posts

Houston eventually scored against our 2nd team, does that make the locks to win a champeenship?

Barnett just seems like he's way to big to play DE. its great that he got a couple sacks but lets see how that pass rush holds up mid-way through the 4th quarter in December. I can almost guarantee it will be non existent. I have the same worry for our old ass DE's as well.

One.  Pre-season.  Game.

Fools rush in.

The thing is, he played that way in college as well. In a lot of peoples eyes, two sacks in the first preseason game is likely exceeding their expectations.

Barnett may have a stellar career, but preseason success statistically is largely irrelevant.

 

I still remember a season in which we lead the preseason in total sacks, and then had one of our worst years sack wise during the regular season.

 

 

I remember a season where the Detroit Lions went undefeated in the preseason, then proceeded to lose every game in the regular season.

Wut? He is like 260 lbs and was considered a tweener between DE/3-4 OLB.

This is hilarious. 

 

Ryan Delaire had two sacks against the Bucs in his first game, and that was an actual regular season game.

That's hilarious.  Ryan Delaire from podunk U vs the most prolific sack man in SEC history.

Excuse me but I am actually the most prolific sack man in SEC history from my time at UF. 

 

My sack is still spoken about as legend.

Nails, if you don't remember me before the draft saying that I liked him better than Garrett then you weren't paying attention at the time. I was all over this kid, and still am. It's just preseason though and doesn't matter until we actually see what happens with him, and ultimately I'm thrilled we have McC and wouldn't change anything.

Yep, was vastly more productive in conference play than Garrett.  Motor, bend, technique, get off, hands, want to, etc., it's all here from last night-
