I wasn't bragging about. If anything this was being critical and looking at the difference between last years team and this year's team. I would have expected much more production out of a D-line like ours. I thought that coming into this year, our D-line would be lights out, taking the pressure off our young LB's. That has not happened.
The point here is that everyone has been critical of the LB's, I think unfairly, when it's obvious looking at the numbers, that the lack of production comes from the front 4.
