According to Yahoo Sports it's JT. I ain't surprised by that, just surprised we got the not over Dwight Freeney and Julius Peppers because everyone seems to think JT can't keep up, they're wrong.

Cool.

But then if you notice at the bottom, Zach is rated above JT in the overall rankings.

According to scoring system a tackle is worth 1 point while a sack is worth only 2 points. Surprised a DE could even make the top 20 based on that scoring system.

Actually that is 2 pts for .5 sack

Freeney will get more sacks but far less tackles, he is the most overrated player on defense in the NFL, he makes a lot of plays, but he takes himself out of so many more.....one trick pony as they say

Most overrated? Way off on that. Maybe not the best, but definitety not overreated. He has one job. Get to the QB.

Sure he will get 16 sacks, and other great DE's will get 12+

Differense is he takes himself out of almost every single running play by only playing the pass, he isnt a complete player at all

Not often I agree with you Alex but you are dead on with that statement.

I've been calling Freeney a media fantasy for 2 years. The guy is ALL about numbers. He never has and never will play the run.

A defensive ends job is to rush the passer AND stop the run. Freeney gets up the field every play....unfortunatley, opposing running backs are running by him every time a team runs the ball to his side of the field.

Freeney is easily one of the top 5 most overrated players in the NFL in my opinion. Hell, he is'nt that much better then Robert Mathis and I don't see anyone ranking Mathis as one of the top defensive players in the sport.

Yeh bet you also have to focus on Sapp, so I dont think he will be doubled.

Sapp hasen't done anything sense he was in TB. No one needs to focus on him.

Well he did it last year with Sapp, so he can do it again this year.

yes, he did it last year with Sapp, but like i said a few posts ago, he will probably see more double teams this season. And it is because the rest of their d line isn't that great. That means his numbers will go down IMO
