What a force this guy has become. Not only is he consistently applying pressure to the qb (another sack today, a forced fumble, and multiple hurries) but his improvement in the running game is staggering. I can't count how many times this year he's come around the edge and stopped running plays in pursuit at the line of scrimmage. He's truly become a complete player, flying all over the field, and I'll be the first to admit that I did not see this coming at all.
Now if we can pick up a dominant pass rusher to play opposite Tully next year, this defense will start to really take shape.

Glad we picked him back up after SF let him go.

I know they play different positions and different systems but look at these numbers
Banta Cain 9.5 sacks 2 Forced fumble 52 tackles
Adalius 3.0 sacks 0 Forced fumble 34 tackles 1 bad attitude
Seymour 4.0 sacks 1 Forced fumble 41 tackles
Burgess 4.0 sacks 1 Forced fumble 26 tackles
Burgess isn't great but appears to be about as good as Seymour for much less $. Banta-Cain has been exellent, too bad dead weight Adalius is on the other side. He should be arrested for stealing 10 million dollars from Robert Kraft.

all the more reason to say bye bye to AD after the season
