    34 tackles and five sacks

    for Adalius Thomas in 2008...is that the kind of production that terrifies an opposing offensive coordinator? The time is now for Thomas to really step it up if this defence is to seriously improve. If both OLB's are effective at creating pressure and presence, that is really hard to gameplan against. I know he was moved around a little bit last year, and that shouldn't happen this year.Woods or Burgess will start opposite Thomas, but the overall effectiveness of this defence may hang on how disrupive Thomas can be, and improving the  opportunities for the other six front liners to make plays. Thoughts?

    In Response to 34 tackles and five sacks:


    He was injured for half the year.  Stretch those stats out over a full season and he shapes up as a top OLB/rush LB and especially so when paired with a motivated and healthy Seymour.  And, sacks are an overrated stat.  If a guy beats the OT twice per game but the other 67 plays result in 300 yards passing, 130 yards rushing and 27 points then was he all that successful?

    Re: 34 tackles and five sacks

    34 tackles and 5 sacks (not to mention 4 passes broken) is great for an 8 game season. If he had finished the year, he would have had 9-10 sacks easy, possibly more.

    Opposing teams probably do more to plan for AT than anyone else in the LB crew.
