  • Is Luis Castillo the best 3-4 DE in the league?

    Ive debated this in my mind. If you watch Castillo play, he seems just as dominant if not more dominant than Seymour.

    Seymours best numbers were 57 tackles in one season, and 8 sacks in one season. That was 3 years ago, and hasn't quite recaptured that magic since.

    In Castillo's 2nd year alone, he has 37 tackles and 7 sacks, with 2 games left to play.

    This year Seymour 35 tackles and 4 sacks.

    I know Seymour is known for his versatility, but everything he does Castillo does as well. Couple that with a better pass rush, is it far fetched to say that right here right now Castillo is the best 3-4 DE in the league?

    :shock: Seymour's DL is just as talented as the Chargers, and Vrabel and Colvin are studs, and Bruschis is still solid. Chargers front 7 is better, but Seymour has players around him.

    Nope.

    Not as much talent as Seymour.

    Not as good technique as Warren.

    Seymour isnt having a better year than Warren this season..

    Seymour is arguably the best DL in league when healthy and u know this..Warren is underrated but having a GREAT year.

    not saying Castillo sucks or anything but i dont think u can compare him to Seymour yet

    and in a 3-4 you dont measure a DE by his sacks FYI
    It's not the only criteria, but it certainly comes into the equation. If one guy is equally as good at stopping the run as another, but can rush the passer as well, it makes him a more valuable player.

    He is definately atleast #2.
    It's sad that no one really credits Aaron Smith.. Keisel is looking Pretty good.. the guy has what..

    50 tackles and 6 sacks?

    He tested positive for Andro which is known to help heal muscles. It's not like he was taking straight up anabolic steroids. Andro is what McGwire took though, so it's still not good.

    As for the argument, Castillo is having a great season, and he is a great player, but watching Seymour at least twice a year I can tell you he is a great player, and still the best 3-4 DE. Wilfork is a great player but it is so hard to run at Seymour. He is so good against the run but still gets a good push in the passing game.

    Also, I've always been impressed with Cesaire's pass rushing ability. I seem him almost always go in in passing situations and he consistently gets pressure up the middle.

    He didn't get suspended since it was before he was drafted. However he did test positive. He admitted using claiming it was to heal an injury faster so he could compete at the combine etc. Because of it I believe he entered the NFL already in their substance abuse program.
    so therefor i dont think he's the best, Seymour is.
    Whatever, the guy has a clause in his contract forfeiting all his money if he ever tests positive again.
