People need to relax about Doom....

Dumervil had one monster season where he netted 17 sacks.....which paved the way for him receive a huge contract...however he had 10 sacks during our initial 6-0 run in '09....7 over the next 10 games.

Needless to say when he's playing well, we generally win....when he's MIA, not so much.

In our 9 wins of '06 he had 7 sacks...in our 7 losses, he had 1.5

In our 7 wins of '07 he had 9.5 sacks...our 9 losses? 3 sacks total.

In our 8 wins of '08 he had 3 sacks.....our 8 losses he had only 2.

In our 8 wins of '09 he had 13 sacks...in our 8 losses he had 4.

I believe his absence was one reason we had a miserable '10....

In '11 he had 7.5 sacks in our 8 wins....2 in our 8 losses.

This season 3.5 of his 5 total sacks have come in our wins....

After signing his huge contract he promptly got injured and missed significant time. And it's that huge contract that has caused some to wonder if he's producing at a level acceptable to his $$$$ paid.

He's shown flashes of that monster season ability since he's returned, but he's not back to the dominant player he was in '09. He had a very good game on Monday...2 sacks and 2 forced fumbles. Hopefully he'll continue to play like that the rest of the way....

It helps us greatly when our defense can play with a lead......
