Default So how many sacks do we get this year ?

If the D plays like they did against Buffalo, how many sack do we get this year. I really like having doom back and Von is a fricken stud already and at the half way point could become unstoppable.

So my question is how many sacks ??

This is the first time in I don't know how long I am excited to see what our D can do. I was like a little kid at Christmas watching that game. It made me realize how much I enjoy watch people get smashed.

BUF OL is dreadful and played even worse against DEN last week. Remember the week before the pass rush sucked. I would wait until about week 4 to see if they can really rush the passer with any success.

Well they won't always be going up against Erik Pears...

I think 20-25 combined is a good possibility if we were playing buffalo all year but really I'd hold out judgment until we go against a better OL.

I think we only Blitzed twice against Dallas. I have to think that with doom, miller and Ayers ( Yes I said Ayers ) that we could have a real pass rush,..

40 sacks total. Probably around 20-25 from VonDoom 5 or so from the other parts of the d-line, and 10-15 from various blitzes.

Chris is a foreigner. That explains why he doesn't understand basic football logic.

Last year's preseason - 4 sacks in the first two games
This year - 4 sacks in the first two games

Just sayin.

I really hope that are D goes back to what it was with Nolan running it. Pre-mcdushbag. If that's the case doom was our only pass rusher and he got 17. Now they will have to worry about Von and I think Ayers will come on too. At the end of last year Ayers was looking decent. This could be a scary little set up. I was thinking 45-55. I was hoping for 60. Maybe it's just my orange and blue glasses

I think we can average about two a game. So thats 32. Some games we will have more. Others less, but 32 seems to be the perfect inverse of what we did last year.

I like it.

Well if they can't stop the run they won't get too many 3rd and long situations and not as many pass situations all together. I'm saying 24.

I'm gonna say 16 from von doom combo, and ten from the rest of the team. so a grand total of 26

Didn't Miller have two, but one he was offsides?

Off Topic. Moss has a sack from Oak. Anybody sen how hes playing this year?

Looks as though Dareus COULD be the next Suh. he has looked really good at times this preseason.

26 seems extraordinarily low for a team that's gonna blitz the hell out of people. a total of 10 from the rest of the team?

Dareus didn't exactly wreck havoc on us. Unless you wanna call Orton's fetal sack a great Dareus play...cept it wasnt

Ok I claim temporary retardation. I was in all honesty just thinking of Miller and Doom... basing that off of Doom's numbers from two years ago.
