    Pass Rush Improvements



    Has anyone noticed an improvement in the pass rush over the past 3 games. I have and seen a large part due to pressure from Kruger taking advantage of the Suggs double team and Cody stepping up. I am hoping the rest helped Ngata.

    I hope to see Upshaw rushing in passing downs at times but he will be doing more of that next year when Kruger is an FA.

    I hope having McPhee healthy will help also.

    I think Ellerbe has provided a lot of pressure from his A-Gap blitzes. I like that as soon as he hits the hole his gets skinny to slice through and force the QB out of the pocket.

    It's more due to the competition than anything else. Going against a rookie QB one week and a crap o-line the next week is going to make you look pretty good.

    I think Suggs is huge here. Plus if a few more on the line get healthy. Going to need it with the secondary banged up.

    Of course it isn't how you start, its how you finish. I'll grade the D when the season is over. Lot of injuries this year.

    Suggs is a great point too. He's a good a rusher as everyone else combined. Getting Suggs back was huge

    It's a mix of the competition and Suggs being back. No one was getting the attention that Sizzle has now started to receive from opposing offenses.

    someone else needs to step up though and be a legit guy next to suggs, someone needs to cease those one on one opportunities so it gives offenses a second rusher to think about. Kruger needs to make a name for himself with every pass rush snap right now or even upshaw. Someone needs to solidify that second rush.

    I hope they can stop the run this Sunday; that's going to be huge.

    If the Ravens stop the run, and the offense doesn't turn the ball over, I think there is a very good chance we will win, because Leftwich can't win games off his arm.

    I agree that getting McPhee back (a 100% McPhee, that is) should be a good thing.


    I also really liked seeing them move Upshaw around. It is that kind of creative thinking that is going to produce mismatches and confuse the offense.

    Re: Pass Rush Improvements

    Beyond sacks, I loved seeing all the tipped passes at the line last Sunday. It's usually an automatic incompletion and a lot of times it gets picked as was the case for Kruger.

    If Byron does his wind up thing hopefully that gives the guys up front a chance to get airborne.
