#1 highest run stop percentage among edge defenders in Week 1

 

How long into the season before people stop sleeping on this guy?

PFF are just a bunch of nerds with calculators!!!!

 

I jest. Never jumped off the Shaq bandwagon, good to see stats to back up an underappreciated impact.

He was noticeably good against the run on Sunday; I'd like to see him get more opportunities to rush the passer in the upcoming weeks.

That's good to see and goes to show that my untrained eye often doesn't know what it's looking at.  I was keeping close watch on Shaq and Dareus during the game and was not impressed with either of them, but the coaches and pro scouts seem to be pleased with how they performed.

I'm really excited to see what Lawson does this year. As he gets healthier and healthier, I envision him becoming an all-out beast on the end. I wouldn't be shocked to see him post double digit sacks.

Sadly, one of the few Whaley picks that may end up panning out... (or was this purely a Rex pick?)

Amone?  <facepalm>  Good to see Shaq on Sunday.  You can see the improvement.

We played a Jets team that is clearly tanking the season. Let's wait until week 5 before throwing out numbers.

It's one game against a pathetic team that will probably finish with one of the worst rushing offenses in the NFL.

 

With that said, Lawson is a guy that needs to emerge for this defense to be what McDermott and Beane envision long term.

Can't really give Whaley any credit.  Lawson was by far the highest rated player on the board when we picked.  He only fell that far due to the shoulder.

It was his strength coming into the league. Hence why/where he was drafted.For that exact role...set the edge, get a fair number of TFL.All around solid edge play, if not spectacular, with relentlessness and effort. By default he should be a 6-8 sack guy a year early in his career

The Jets gave Buffalo fits with their run game last season. Powell and Forte are holdover RBs. The Jets are probably tanking but Forte and Powell didn't suddenly become a whole lot worse. I don't know how much turnover the Jets had on their offensive line, but if it wasn't that much, the game probably shows that Buffalo has become much better at stopping the run, and Shaq is a big part of it. Buffalo did not stack the box and dare the Jets to pass (knowing the Jets have no decent receivers). They did it with a balanced defense.

He looked good against the Jets.

I see that coming in the next 2 to 3 weeks. With Cincinnati being a possibility as well. Now that I saw the defense I watch the game again, and I really wish I could get someone's all 22. But with Cam Newton I see him able to drive his guy right into the pocket and I see sex and a lot of pressure coming from our insides this week because that's the best place to get Newton. he generally doesn't scramble to be outside , and he's slower than he has been. If Humber and brown and are safeties continue to hunt anyone out of the backfield will do well

I like Shaq and think he'll be a tremendous run stopping DE, but I don't see him ever being a great pass rusher. We're going to have to stick Lorax outside of him if we want edge QB pressure.

If there's a small hole we will burst through it.

That's a strength of his. I'm hoping the pass rushing comes along as well.
