And Rivera spoke today about this very issue, saying that it was a passing league, and you need to be able to rush the passer and cover receivers.
I am probably reading too much into that comment, but as soon as he said it, I thought, well, they aren't going to pick Dareus. PP, maybe, or someone more effective at rushing the passer like Miller, if they don't go QB.
Man, you really missed the boat on that one.
A strong DT presence on the Carolina line will do MUCH MORE to improve our pass rush than any LB or DE that we could add to this team.
Without a dominant inside force, a QB merely steops up in the pocket to escape from outside pressure. A DT who can provide push inside give the QB nowhere to go....thus increasing the number of sacks.
