For a frame of reference, here's who he's throwing around.

 

Kelechi Osemele

 

Second round pick (60th overall) in his second season with the Ravens.  Started all 16 regular season games at right tackle his rookie year.  Also started

all postseason games, including the Super Bowl.  Currently their starting left guard.

 

Height: 6'5    Weight: 333

that gif i posted.

 

that o-lineman is a beast and is known for his long arms and strength. i heard ravens fans saying they've never seen anybody do anything remotely close to that to him.

 

 

I remember watching this game and thinking if #72 was the starter or just some scrub they wanted to get a better look at. Come to find out he's actually supposed to be pretty good and Star beat him like a drum all night

Damn! He's got 3 inches and 20 lbs on Star, and he still rag dolled him.

"Second, Dwan Edwards is one of their starting DT's. I find it difficult to believe that he's suddenly turned into Warren Sapp.

 

 

 

 

Dwan:

 

52 tackles, 6 sacks

 

Dareus:

 

39 tackles, 5.5 sacks

 

Yes, Dareus was in his 2nd year and will get better, but the point is Dwan doesn't deserve to be talked down about like that.

Dareus:

 

39 tackles, 5.5 sacks

 

To be fair, Dareus is a NT. Having said that, he didn't have a particularly good opener against The Patriots. Word is he came into training camp a tad overweight and out of shape.

I like the end of the clip where he just stands there looking like "what the..." :blink:

True.

 

Kyle Williams: 46 tackles, 5 sacks

 

Dwan Edwards 52 tackles, 6 sacks

 

They're talking poo about Dwan when he performed better than both of their starting DTs.

Dareus states he's bringing his A-game vs us and Denver for passing on him in the draft.  Kind of silly considering all 3 of those guys are looking like beasts.

Falcon fans will be saying the same thing when Steven Jackson collides with Star and not an inch is given on that day.

 


True.

Dwan Edwards 52 tackles, 6 sacks

Which I find odd since they're aware that their squad resides in Buffalo, right? They shouldn't be talking poo to anybody. The Bills' organization doesn't know how to draft and develop talent, but when they do hit the jackpot (ex. Spiller) they waste it with horrible coaching staff hirings.

I'd love for Star to get DROY, but it's going to be VERY tough. We're basically going to have to maintain a top-5 defense and be a playoff team while he gets at least 5 sacks while continuing to pile up praise in the media. It's very hard for DT's to put up the kind of stats required for that award. Why linebackers/pass rushers usually win.

 

But it can be done, most assuredly.

Actually DROY could be very easy for Star.  Look at who he is competing with not to many top talent Defensive players this year.

Another 15 + 3 or 4 performances like last Sunday and it will be a no brainer.
