Default Is JD the most popular DE ever??????

Decided to watch some clips/read blurbs about Clowney's play last night, I found out something interesting. Seems like anytime clowney makes a big play the o lineman forgot to block/ he left him unblocked by design, which makes me wonder how awesome of a guy JD must be if olineman and offensive coordinators are calling plays to just to give him sacks and tfls. I honestly can't think of a guy who has been gifted more sacks in his life, I always knew/thought JD was a likable dude, but this is some next level stuff.

Good article about his skills-http://houston.culturemap.com/news/sports/08-17-14-jadeveon-clowney-crushes-the-johnny-manziel-overhype-steals-hard-knocks-stage-no-doubt-who-real-top-rookie-is/, great quote by dj, sounds like both guys are winning over the locals.

Are you being sarcastic or are you serious?

I'm being sarcastic, clowney has literally been dominate outside of pass coverage. But for some reason he might be the most hated on Rookie in recent memory.

JD did what he did without JJ playing. They will cost defensive coaches many hours of restless sleep and headaches.

I love seeing the hardcore haters eat their pablum! It happened wih Alshon ("he's fat and slow") as it happened wih Clowney ("he's lazy and doesn't care").

Ignorance from the ignorant.

I just watched the sack and the big hit:

First, I'm not sure I understand the logic in trying to block him with a pulling guard without trying to chip him with a tightend or at least using the tackle to slow him up. He's to fast off of the ball for that, the guard didnt stand a chance.

Second, on that sack, he just made that veteran starter look terrible.

The guard has a deer in the headlights look as Clowney flies past him, I feel bad him bc that could've been ugly for the rb and he knew it.

Default Re: Is JD the most popular DE ever??????

People say that because they just see him run right by O-linemen. They don't see that the guard was slow to pull and missed him on the TFL or that he just shot of the ball and ran around the tackle using leverage on the sack.

Default Re: Is JD the most popular DE ever??????

I laugh when people say he wasn't blocked. There's a reason most of his big plays come from when he is untouched. Hes too frigging fast off the ball for the olineman to react.

He's not as popular as I was in middle school, but he sure is getting close
