    I never liked him. Spin moves are a big no-no in my book. I don't think one-dimensional DEs are worth long-term contracts because they tend to decline rapidly.

          Excellent, now the franchise tag can be used on Sanders at season's end.


          The problem arises when people use statistics like a drunk uses a lamp post: for support instead of illumination.

          If luck is where preparation meets opportunity, then clutch is where failure meets luck.

            WHAT!?!? that much for freeney, hes not even that good, maybe the Colt's best DE, but still not worth half that much

              Have you ever actually watched him play his gap, or are you judging him based on highlights in which he's normally asked to take the outside route, abandon his gap, and try to sack the QB?

                He played 16 games this year, got 6 sacks, his stats were no better than KGB's and he doesnt make the big sacks in the big situations

                  I've seen him play plenty. Find me one defensive line coach who endorses spinning. Find me one person who thinks that Freeney isn't one-dimensional. He rushes the passer very well, but that's about it. KGB did the same a few years ago, and look at him now.

                      Correct! Evantually he'll get old and lose his pass rush ability and then he'll have nothing

                        Players and teams adapt to one-dimensional players. If all you do is rush the outside, they're going to adapt and stop you. That's why guys like Strahan who are so versatile are deadly.

                          Thats why pass rushers like merriman who have more than a spin... last so dam long... cause even when he slows down... he'll run you over or throw you(the OT) into the QB

                            The only player who has ever been able to stop a healthy Dwight Freeney consistently is Orlando Pace. Enough said.

                              I asked if you'd ever seen him play his gap, not your opinion about Freeney's style of play, or to whom you think he compares. Would you like to answer the question now?
