This is gonna expose Hardy as a player. He's seriously not that great. Charles Johnson is so much better it isn't even funny. He's the one that gets double teams, then once Lotulelei and Short were drafted it took even more pressure off. Hardy benefited greatly from the players around him. Not to mention, literally half of his production came in 2-3 games against the worst tackles in the league. Addison having 2.5 sacks last week was just a small sign of that. Whoever they throw out there is gonna succeed.
i don't agree. Hardy gets a ton of pressure even when he doesn't get sacks. It's just that when he can beat a player, he absolutely dominates them on every play. He makes the offense adjust for him in those scenarios or he'll get a sack/tackle in the backfield on every play. Plus he's a very good pass rushing DT.
