It just doesn't make sense that Porter, Smith, Jenkins, Franklin and Ellis all regressed this last year; there has to be something on the coaching side
Did they really regress, though? Or were they just the players that they are?
I actually think the LBers and secondary were fine this year. All of our problems stem from the front 4 being a joke.
I think Will Smith has 2 double digit sack seasons in 8 or 9 years? 1 in the last 5 years? Maybe he's just not all that good.
Ellis has had 4 years to show he's just average.
I thought our Franklin and Rogers did their jobs this year. They clogged the middle, our run D was solid. Cam Jordan was also good against the run.
Why are we counting on late round picks and UDFAs to be our pass rushers? I just think we lack the talent to rush the passer.
