Mr. Scot

Did Star and Short wear down?

Recommended Posts



With a solid draft this year our future is looking Amazing. Now that DG knows Cam is his QB he'll take care of him along with adding to the already impressive Defense.

Mind you. now that they have a full pro season under their (large) belts, next year could be a lot of fun to watch.

 

This.  I have this childish hope that KK becomes the next Geno and Star the next Haloti.  Which may be true with Star if he just develops a little bit more pass rush.

Not sure about KK but I know Star played a ton of snaps at Utah, so the rookie wall might have not been as big of a deal for him?

They both played over 90% of snaps. This was the big knock on both of them especially kk. He made insane splash plays then looked like he didn't care. But that's what happens when at 300 lb plus guy plays that much. As the Purdue coach said about kk, " he has the ability to take over the game"

I'm really excited for the next couple of years for this duo.  I say the next couple because in 3-4 years, we get to contract time...and we know how much fun that is...

 

If we can get a similar production from Hard or his replacement(s), the 2014 season should be another fun, slobber knocking season!

They hit the wall and obliterated it.

 

San Fran's entire was pretty much non-existent. Hunter and Gore had their way with our Ends, who over pursued a fugton throughout the end.

People see what a double dip did for what was considered one of the weakest positions on our team.. And then spew poo at gettleman for possibly double dipping on the offensive line, which is considered one of the weakest positions as of now... ?..

The interior pressure and having CJ on the other side of the line made Greg Hardy's job so much easier this year, because he rarely had helpside blocking on his end of the line. He was getting 1 on 1 matchups until Johnson's knee came up funny and teams kind of adjusted after that, including the playoff game. Johnson was just a gigantic decoy out there for the most part. You can thank the guys up the middle for our ends having that much freedom to pass rush. Even if they did hit a wall, which I think they did to a degree, the opposition respected them enough not to let them run wild which is the most important thing you need from your D-tackles. Any stats they accumulate is just a bonus.
