Does anyone NOT think he's a dominant player? He's projected #2, right?

Not sure I get the premise of the thread.

I'd be happy with that, but I'd prefer Peterson.

Well, I'll be watching the game, so we'll see. I missed the LSU game, but heard Peterson didn't do so well.

So far a QB hurry that led to an INT and a tackle for loss.

That QB hurry was more the Oline playing like crap. They didn't even touch Fairley. It was like they forgot he was in the game.

It looked like he was supposed to let him go and Fairley gained ground on him in a hurry. Either that, or the guard thought the center had him.

That sounds more about right. It looked like an f'up to me.

Which is kind of weird, considering Fairley is routinely double-teamed.

I don't think he has been very impressive so far.

I think it's going to be a tough game for the DL to have a huge impact because of the pace at which it will be played.

Still Fairley has had a few big plays, one pressure that led to an INT.

I like Fairley. If we go with the 4-3 the next go around, i would love to see us somehow find a way to get Fairley and Adrian Clayborn.

I know I don't post much, but Fairley has been struggling at times even against 1 on 1 blocks...

Ha, he seems to crank it up when his back is to the goal line. Against Alabama he made a play at the end of the half when Alabama was about to score that was the turning point of the game that involved a sack, strip, and fumble recovery.

They're running a spread option attack. You're going to see unblocked players all night. They are counting on the defense not being disciplined and leaving their gap assignment.

Don't take it back. Only time you see Fairley is when the Oline decides they don't want to block him. Watch Fairley when the Oline is blocking him. The guy is stopped cold. It's not even a double team.
