^ Actually that

To emphasize the point. If you look back on his seven sacks and just stop the frame a second into the play, you're usually counting 7 Lions vs 5 Broncos :/ And TWO of those Broncos are Franklin and Beadles so it's more like 7 v 3. I think there was only one sack play with 5 of less rushers and off-hand I believe it was one of the Avril plays.

The "8 in the box stopping the run" is just a fallacy and our rushing total with Moreno and Lance Ball proves it.
