Its hard to believe that an UDFA played more snaps this year than a 1st rd pick. Someone in the scouting dept deserves a raise.

 

Nature of the game.  DL rotates.  Corner not so much.

When he was in college, Star had a rep for being dominant early in games and tailing off later

Is easy to tail off at the end of games when you're playing 92% of your team's defensive snaps. He's playing ~50% now.

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

I can't wait to see Short next year.  I love Star, he was a day one starter, but Short is so quick, IMO hes as quick off the line as Star

Vikes used to have a similar styled combo in Henry Thomas and John Randle.

 

Would love for Star and Short to be that good.

They're rookies.

 

Did you not hear Gettleman praised Star yesterday?

 

Cmon. Lock thread now.

I don't know that any fan could answer that question, but I remember hearing a NFL coach say that all rookies hit the wall.

Natural.  Beyond the fact that the competition is worlds tougher, they've never played through a season that lasted this long.

 

With a more exhausting job that lasts longer, it's bound to happen.  Some handle it better than others.

Even with less game snaps played, the work in the weight room is brutal. Rookies get really sore and are forced to continue lifting through the pain.

I would think the wall hit them

Actually I think they are the wall, and they hit the rookies.

RR/DG said the other day KK was at his best the last 4-5 games.
