How do you guys expect the Dline to perform as a whole this year? Individual players? Do you expect Donald to start? Let me see your predictions about our best unit.

I don't think Donald will start but he'll play a high number of snaps.

As a whole defense.. Anything less than 50 maybe 55 sacks would be dissapointing. Weve had over 50 2 straight years now (with the majority coming from the line) so if anything id like to see us get about 60-65 as crazy as it sounds..

As for individual lineman i can see

Quinn 15-18 sacks
Long 10-13
Brockers 4-8
Donald 3-6
Langford 3-5
Hayes 4-7
Sims 1-3
Carrington 1-3 ( not sure about him)

And as for run defense i expect them to rank top 7

Quinn - 17 sacks
Long - 10 sacks
Donald - 9 sacks
Brockers - 5 sacks
Hayes - 5 sacks
Langford - 3 sacks
Carrington - 2 sacks
Sims - 2 sacks

That makes 53 sacks for the D-line alone. Assuming that Williams blitzes as much as I think he will, our sack totals could be astronomical.

I think our pass rush will be quite solid. Especially if Donald can come in and beat one on one blocks, which he should be able to.

Against the run, I am worried. With the exception of Brockers and Quinn, we don't any members of front 7 that excel in that area. JL-55 can't shed a block to save his life, and often washes himself out of plays by trying to avoid blocks altogether. Ogletree struggles similarly with this issue.

We'll know by week 3, when DeMarco Murray runs for another 300 yards against or not.

Outside of Murray, we did very well against the run last year, I'm not too worried about it. 3rd best in the league at only 3.7 YPC and 7th best at 101.6 Yards per game.

Yupp.. Our run defense actually was very good aside a game or two. Dunbar coming back from his suspension also helped alot

This year, we should have a DC that's competent. That'll go along way vs. Dallas. Walton was just out-smarted in that game at every turn.

The Bryant TD was a joke. As blatant of a push-off as you can get.
