OH yes. Another year in the system will help everyone, especially the DLine. Add a young pass-rusher and a good MLB to the mix and it'll free him up to tear people apart.
It was basically him last year... the LBers were injured, the DLine was injured... so, with a decent supporting cast, he'll be able to thrive moreso than last year.
That being said, if we get a player like Willis or Beason or Harris... that player may lead the team in tackles while Sims gets more sacks than he did last year.
