Dwan Edwards Staying

Against a QB who's a serious run threat, most DCs these days will employ what they call a "mush rush". The rushers don't necessarily slow down, but they do concentrate more on maintaining rush lanes and contain.

They'll still throw an occasional all out blitz in there just to rattle them, of course. And as often as not at least one defender from the back seven (usually a linebacker) will serve as a "spy" just in case they do take off.

It's generally the best approach, though Tampa under Monte Kiffin manhandled Vick pretty well by bringing heavy pressure from his left and forcing him to the right. Left handed Vick couldn't throw well when he ran right. They still kept a spy on that side to contain him of course.

That strategy might be a little chancy against a QB who's also a good passer. It worked well against Vick though, primarily because they knew Vick's pass game wasn't that great a threat as long as you had someone who could cover Alge Crumpler.

Yea vick had some pretty terrible weapons when he was with atl so that didn't help. Alge and dunn were really the only other threats his wrs were mike jenkins and some dude named ashley lilly if I remember right lmao.

I'm amazed that Person still has a job. Remember right after Keek was drafted, he tweeted the wrong pick? Voth had to correct him. He must have pictures of someone important with piles of blow and underage hookers.

I would seriously like to know how PFF grades the players, they honestly said adding him "didn't help all that much."

Wow.

SIGNING! To begin with, the Panthers brought back defensive tackle Dwan Edwards. Over the last several seasons the Panthers haven’t gotten much production out of the position, so Carolina added veterans Dwan and Ron Edwards, which didn’t help all that much. While Dwan Edwards managed six sacks, he didn’t come up with much more pressure and had a -6.5 rating in the run game. The move is an insurance policy at the position.

carefully grading every play in the NFL season loses importance when you quote some singular all-encompassing number without context and expect it to carry all the necessary weight. stats are not illuminating without context. that is PFF's biggest sin, IMO.

Im starting to not take PFF seriously anymore.

they charge $25 or whatever (was $90 or some obscene number like that for a while) but don't pay writers so you get guys that are bleacher report quality using better stats collected by people who don't get paid except they don't have to pay for the site.

there's really no reason to take them seriously in their write ups or really pay for their stats. it's dumber than paying espn insider fees.

Actually, they do pay their writers. Hell, I made a tidy sum and didn't write a thing. The volunteer collators typically start out unpaid but if they prove to do good consistent work they usually get a stipend as well. I don't agree with all of the articles either but they're far from Bleacher Report. And the stats tool is awesome, the problem with their grades quoted in their articles is that they'll quote a number but it has zero context because you don't know just how good or bad it is without knowing what other players are grading at.
