Awesome work, as always. Just missing some context
True enough and point taken.
I just wanted to highlight that Brooking isn't some kind of lynch pin in this defense but a small role player, playing a very limited number of snaps which we could drastically improve upon by replacing him with DJ.
So that by the time we hit the playoffs we can keep Woodyard at Will instead of having him wear down at the Mike position having to replace Brooking.
