Crowded DE position?

With what we saw in Biermann and Sidbury in the preseason added to Davis (who IMO should be the starter) and add that with Anderson and Abraham...

We look awfully crowded.

The way I see it..

J Anderson should not see the field in typical passing situations. He should be rotated in and out on plays that should have a high chance of being a run play. He just doesn't create the pass rushing skills that Biermann and Sidbury do.

I think Abraham should be rotated as well to keep him fresh.

We have a nice luxury here.

Lets not focus on JA98 numbers this year. His sacks may not be where he makes his impact.

Honestly we have one stud, one bust and a bunch of low round picks

Stud: Abraham

Bust: Anderson

Low Rounders:

Biermann (5th round)

Davis (4th round)

Sidbury (4th round)

The low round picks are slowly taking away snaps from Jamaal Anderson

Just because you were chosen in a low round should not label you as such. Anderson is just not as talented as was previously thought. Bierman, Davis and Sidbury are more talented than was previously thought.

I'm with you bro. If JA98 can manage to do his part in the run downs by making it 3 & long for the opposing team offense I say he did his job. Abraham & Biermann can finish off the rest

CATCH 22

Anderson has worked himself into a very bad situation

By not producing (Sacks) he gets replaced on passing downs

--- so if he isn't in on passing downs he can't get sacks.

AND everyone screams he's a bust because he gets no sacks.

Note I do not believe sacks alone is a true measure of a players worth but because on his history

(draft position and performance) he gets a real bad rap.

He was drafted to provide a pass rush as per Petrino and McKay. Smitty has been quoted saying he wants more sacks from the LDE position. I'd say he has failed miserably.
