    so much
    Well Wheeler is not a stength in this area or maybe any area. I liked him as a low budget signing not so much at his money.He is an ok player good at times but neither he or Ellerbee are worth what they get paid

    Neither of the LB's we got were a good value, not by a stretch. With that said, our defense has been pretty good this year and has put us in position to win many games. If our offense was running at even average capacity we'd have 7+ wins already.

    Our pass rush would be even better if we had a healthy Patterson playing corner.

    Healthy and Patterson should not be used in the same sentence.

    I cannot and Burnett is not. Miller is easily #1. This year, Bruce Irvin is #2, Lavente David is tied for #3 with Wheeler, and Akeem Ayers is #5. Then there is a drop off to Lance Briggs, Chad Greenway, and Malcolm Smith. Burnett is #12.

    Last year, it was Miller at #1. Wheeler was #2 and better with 3 sacks, 14 hits, 13 hurries, and a grade twice as good as this year. Ayers was #3, and Burnett was #8.

    Yeah, OV is much improved on the pass rush from a year ago but has dropped off vs the run in taking Odrick's place.

    Wake being healthy would not hurt either. He is way off from the FANTASTIC year he had last season.

    I agree, he is playing well, but could turn it up a notch. Plus the more plays Dion gets will only help the pass rush. IMO, the D has not peaked yet. They will get better.

    Thats PFF rating doesnt mean Wheeler is a better pass rusher. In fact that was Wheeler's only good year as a pass rusher. I dont care about PFF's rating becaause as I said they think a hurry and a sack re equal and they are not
