He had his moments but he didn't look good and it wasn't all on the pass rush.
    Not giving him a pass... but I don't think he was as nearly as bad as you are making him out to be last year.

    It's not like all of a sudden he forgot how to play in DL's D and continually got out of position as a result. He was trying to overcompensate for an overall lack of talent. Last season, we had 3 other guys on the field that were solid when they played - Heyward, Worilds/Woodley, and Gay.

    I think Troy and Timmons both had some breakdowns trying to cover for other players lack of ability.
    I agree... but trying to do other people's jobs usually means their assignment isn't being completed which leads to big plays.
