    Default Interesting look at the OL and DL, and who we may Target in the Draft

    All six NFL teams that played in the Divisional Round of the playoffs finished the regular season ranked 10th or better in sack differential, and just two teams in the top ten didn't make the postseason. In other words, the best teams in the NFL have good offensive and defensive lines. The league's three worst teams in sack differential were the Jaguars (-30), Chiefs (-23), and Rams (-19). Look for those teams to use their first-round picks on linemen or pass rushers. -Evan Silva
    I thought this was an interesting stat. I think it is fairly obvious that in the NFL the OL and DL/LB are critical, but this makes it seem like they should now be our top priority. I figured if Berry was available that the Chiefs wouldn't hesitate to take him. Now I honestly wouldn't be surprised if they passed him up for McClain or Okung.

    It's too bad there isn't a straight up DeMarcus Ware available. I wonder what our differential was over the 2nd half of the season. An interesting stat nonetheless.

    Demarcus Ware IS available - as a free agent.

    In my dreams maybe. He signed a monster contract extension during the season.

    Ah...didn't know that. Sad. Well, let's get the CBA signed so we can go after Elvis Dumervil.

    What's that saying around the NFL?
    You have to have a QB. Weather you like him or not Matt is the man.
    You have to protect the QB. We still have a problem there.
    You have to get to the opposing QB. 20 is better than 10, but we're still 15+ sacks from being good.
    Okung or McClain.
    Since Niswanger was named OL MVP, I guess we won't get the OC we were hoping for this draft.

    That's such bull. Niswanger was clearly the worst piece of our offensive line for me. I wish we'd try Wade Smith at the position at least. He was awesome this year.

    I still have nightmares of Niswanger being pushed back into the QB. He is awful.
