Our defence would go from good to great if we had an olb pass rushing stud.
Edit: whoa, our sack stats are nothing short of pathetic. Our leading sacker is Bryan Thomas with 2.5 sacks. 81st overall in the league.
I can agree with that except that it doesn't matter where you get a pass rush from so long as you get one. OLB, ILB, DE, DT, NT what's the difference so long as you are abe to provide consistent pressure on the QB?
Moreover, the Jets are stasrting to look much more like a 4-3 defense. In that defense, typically the pass rush comes from the DL. Once again, nothing written in stone which says you MUST get pressure from one particular position, but just relying on historical norms.
