    Big Mo or Brooks Reed

    Lot of discussion on the board lately about Tannenbaum not going after pass rushers in the recent drafts, despite our need in that area.

    Brooks Reed got his 5th sack in his last 5 games yeserday, playing a DE/OLB position in Wade Phillips 3-4. (Those sacks are without the help of Mario Williams drawing a double team)

    Wilkerson has been very good for us, and had a particulary nice game yesterday, getting into the backfield and making 2 TFL.

    Just curious what everyone thinks as both players were on the board when we picked last year.

    This year, Reed would have helped us more as we then maybe resigned ellis for the year.

    In the long run, Mo Wilk baby!

    So, essentially, Brooks Reed has the same amount of sacks as Maybin, but with more playing time. And Jets still got Mo.

    Plus, Mario Williams played OLB in Philip's defense, not 3-4 DE, so that's not a factor.

    From what (little) I've seen of the Texans and Brooks Reed, he seems like a guy who plays within the system and will get his share of sacks, but not the dominant pass rusher that we were looking for. Nothing wrong with that - he's played quite well as a rookie, but we've gotten our money's worth out of Mo Wilk as well. He made a number of very nice plays yesterday and is stout at the point of attack. Put him in an NFL off season program and he comes back even stronger next year and has even more of an impact.

    I'm perfectly happy with #96.

    Mo was a sound investment. We go OLB next year

    +1. LB unit needs considerable attention in our next draft.

    The funny part is that Brooks Reed is 2 and a half years OLDER than Wilkerson and over 1 year OLDER than Maybin.

    Love the fact that Maybin is only 23 years old. Even if his skillset is limited right now, I'm extremely happy with what he has been able to accomplish so far.

    He had a nice bull rush in the first quarter on that deep pass to Nelson that Wilson broke up. He pushed the LT all the way back into Fitzpatrick and he wasn't able to fully step into his throw.

    His speed and motor have gotten him a lot this year. Love it.

    I like Big Mo and maybin with his 5 sacks with no help at all. He could be a terror in the future on opposing QBs. I like REED and still do but I like our draft with Big MO!

    Mo with 6 TFL's this season, near the top of the NFL.

    We hope. When it comes to team needs in the draft ,it can go either way with these two at the helm.

    I'm happy with Wilkerson, we needed to get younger and more athletic at that position.

    We should add a OLB this offseason,.

    Maybe Im wrong but Big Mo has played among the best rookie Dlineman in the draft. Certainly better then Jordon or Heyward it seems.

    Isn't really close. Mo has been good all year, and has been a constant factor the last 3 weeks or so.
