    Misi pass rushing?

    How has Koa been as a rusher this season? Because I noticed him get a sack and a half as well as playing the right end in the nickel package. Oh and was Vernon playing Misi's linebacker spot at all? I thought I saw 50 playing in that spot for a few snaps?

    I think Misi got both of his sacks with him and Wake as the bookends. He's gotten some pressure in the first few games, but he finally got there yesterday. Most improved player on the team. Not sure where Vernon was, but I think he might have gotten half a sack yesterday.

    Misi certainly looks better as an end but its still early days, we really need to keep up the pressure to protect a rather suspect secondary ...

    I think Vernon dropped into coverage a few times. Misi has been much better as a 4-3 OLB as he doesn't have to worry as much about using pass rush moves (which he has no moves)

    Vernon was playing a mix of DE and LB in pass rushing situations. When Misi was at RDE, Vernon was the LB on his side. This formation worked in part because they moved Odrick to DT on passing downs. Misi has 1 1/2 sacks on the season and is playing solid football. IF Vernon eventually turns his potential into plays. That's 5 pass rushers in Wake, Odrick, Starks, Misi @ RDE and Vernon from the LB spot; that Coyle can send at any time. finally some creativity out of the new DC. I still think 1 more well rounded Pass Rusher is needed opposite of Wake, perhaps coming from the 2013 draft.

    Vernon might have had his best game for us yesterday. I don't know if he got to the QB, but he had pressure from his side at least 3 times. As for Misi, I agree he's definitely improved a ton. He has some comp though for most improved player from Sean Smith and Brian Hartline. Glad to see a number of players pick up their level of play for us. I hope a big part of that is coaching, and not the fact that some of these guys are in contract years.

    When are they going to apply this movement to the secondary???????

    what's really sad and a bad omen going forward is you get the kind of pressure we did from so many guys yesterday and you still give up 300 plus yards passing to a team without a running game and with a bad qb

    I hope that is the plan for the 2013 draft. With 5 picks in the 1st 3 rounds it's possible that CB and FS is addressed multiple times. If Xavier Rhodes is there in round #1, I'm running the card up to the podium and to go 1 step further, if Kenny Vaccaro the Texas FS/SS is there at the top of round #2 i'm running the card up again.
