Honestly I can barely keep track of which position is which on the D-Line anymore. There were streetfights in here last summer over whether Von should be called a DE when he steps up and puts his hand on the ground, etc ....

Safe to say Bannan was never a penetrator, he was a gapper - he took up blockers. His best seasons were with the Ravens playing all 3 line spots in their 3-4. Converse to the Fau point I made about PFF ratings - you gotta believe that if Bannan was rated #19 against the run, that means something. After all, PFF rated WW best OLB against the pass last year, and Harris like the #9 cover CB I think? Sounds high, but it was a gaudy high rating.

Okay, I think I have to bring Barney in ... for the youngsters if nothing else......
