Smith is your weak side DE and he is the one that is responsible for bring the pressure on the QB. Which over the past two years he has dropped his leave of play.

Smith forces the QB to step up in the pocket and Jordan is to be collapse the pocket under neath Smiths rush forcing the QB into the DT.

Ok simply put i know but IMO Jordan did a solid Job last year.

More than once did i see him break into the back feild only to break down and play containment. I suspect this was coaching and his assignment. I can understand it because of the blitz happy nature of the defense. If Jordan does not break down and contain the QB the field was usually wide open.

I see Jordan as a two down and short yardage DE. Passing downs will bring more speed.

Do not be surprised if Jordans sack numbers increase with better play from the other side of the defense.

Smith needs to pick up his play or some one needs to replace him. Smith spottier play in the last 2 years will be more exposed if the WLB play improves as we all think it will.
Agree with everything except the red. He's a 3-down DE who may slide inside occasionally, but he's certainly not a liability at all on obvious passing downs. I think thats a cliche he doesn't deserve at all.

Any starter at DE in a 4-3 should have at least five sacks by season end...

Jury's still out though, but their getting tired of the professional testimony...

If Williams had thought of dropping a DE in coverage he would have blitzed all 4 Db's

i agree with you completely. i saw him stop his pass rush more than a dozen times last year and breakdown into containment. I blame that on coaching and the play on the weakside, which by the pretty much sucked the big one last year.

I believe with this system we will get to see why he is first round talent. He will be hard to take off the field by mid season imo.
