Pass rush is lacking

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Never thought I would say this, but are we really missing Grant, and McCray that much? Our defensive front four, should have had alot of sacks, on that makeshift o-line in sf. What needs to happen here?...

We don't seem to generate much pressure unless we're blitzing.

We can't seem to penetrate any pressure when we do blitz.

Alex Brown has always been known more for defending the run; I believe he's only had 6 or 7 sacks the past 2 seasons up in Chicago.

Fine by me. Maybe he'll start defending it.

Yeah I noticed the same thing. The pass rush was one of the biggest problems for us against the 49ers. It would have stopped a lot more of their drives, especially since they were mostly just running the ball or going to short dumpoffs.
