One sack was in garbage time against Philly.
He had a coverage sack against Dallas and the second one came when Romo ran out of the pocket right into his arms due to pressure from the other side (Ayers?).
To me, his sacks have not been very impressive. The most impressive one to me was his coverage sack. Not saying he has played bad (for a backup he's living up to expectations I would say) but he kind of did the same thing the past couple of years in San Diego with his sacks either coming in garbage time or inferior opposition.
I haven't been paying attention to Dumervil. It seems like he's doing okay but not anything spectacular.
Eh, it's hard to bang on the guy for doing what he's supposed to especially since if he didn't take advantage of situations you'd equally blast him for that.
It's just like teams winning against crappy teams and not getting credit...you can only play against who's on the schedule.
I suppose when Von comes back and Phillips can run a little more free, he won't get credit then either amirite?
