The # 1 Defense Had 36 Sacks In 2014


Recommended Posts

As a team the Seahawks had 36 total sacks. The LE, LEO and SAM accounted for a little more than half of them. The one position that we covet at pick 8 did not even lead the team.

1. Michael Bennett (LE) - 7 sacks

2. Bruce Irvin (SAM) - 6.5 sacks

3. Jordan Hill (DT) - 5.5 sacks

4. Cliff Avril (LEO) - 5 sacks

5. Kevin Williams (DT) - 3 sacks

I'm excited to see what "Q" can do for us

1. Adrian Clayborn (LE) - ? sacks

2. Brook Reed (SAM) - ? sacks

3. Ra'shede Hageman (DT) - ? sacks

4. Draft pick (LEO) - ? sacks

5. Jonathan Babineaux (DT) - ? sacks

Prominent Players Coached

SEATTLE SEAHAWKS:

  • DE CHRIS CLEMONS – Recorded a career-high 11.0 sacks in 2010 which tied him for 10th in the NFL, along with 49 tackles (33 solo) and one forced fumble in the most productive season of his career.
  • DE PATRICK KERNEY – Coached the two-time Pro Bowler in the last season of his 11-year career, as Kerney played 15 games and picked up five sacks.

NEW YORK JETS:

  • DE SHAUN ELLIS – Collected 60 tackles in 2008—the 10th most by a defensive lineman in the NFL—and was tied for 17th in sacks with 8.0. In his career, he has totaled 499 tackles, 72.5 sacks and has forced 12 fumbles.
  • DT KRIS JENKINS – Earned 2008 Pro Bowl honors, the fourth time in his career he received the recognition and second-team AP All-Pro accolades after posting 53 tackles and 3.5 sacks. Also won his first career AFC Defensive Player of the Week award with 1.5 sacks, three hurries and three tackles in the Nov. 2 win over Buffalo.

MIAMI DOLPHINS:

  • DE KEVIN CARTER – Played both of his seasons with Miami under Quinn, starting all 32 games and tallying 99 tackles, 11.5 sacks, four passes defensed, three fumble recoveries and a forced fumble during that time.
  • DE JASON TAYLOR – During Quinn’s two-year tenure with Miami, Taylor ranked third in the NFL with 25.5 sacks, led the league in forced fumbles with 13, and scored three defensive touchdowns (two interception returns, one fumble return) en route to earning Pro Bowl berths in 2005 and 2006 and the AP NFL Defensive Player of the Year award in 2006.

SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS:

  • DT BRYANT YOUNG – Made the final two Pro Bowls of his career under the tutelage of Quinn in the 2001 and 2002 seasons.

Really sacks are fantastic, but it's the pressure we're missing that would be ideal. If we can get consistent pressure on the QB, we will get off the field. It just sucks watching blitz packages get stonewalled play after play.

So you're saying sacks are overrated?

Wasn't that Smitty's whole point? That pressure means more than sacks?

Ironically, they had fewer sacks because their pressure was so amazing nearly every play the other team planned for quick throws and such. I would love to have the passrush they do, but sack numbers as a raw stat don't tell us much.

Yeah, I'd like to see where they rank in the league for pressures. I know Bennett was at the top.

They had 44 in 2013. If Quinn can get us 35+ sacks next year, I'd consider that a job very well done.

Schofield or Beer can get the five sacks Avril got. A rookie will likely get less than five like Mack and Barr last year.

In 2014 SEA had 37 sacks 55 hits, 186 hurries = 278 total pressures.

In 2014 ATL had 22 sacks 47 hits, 176 hurries = 245 total pressures.

A whopping two more pressure per game than us. Meh.

Defense is a big deal until Gurley's in the draft. Then your "dead grandma" is better than Khalil Mack and Anthony Barr, and you'd rather have Biermann than either of them. You're off your game man.

Surprising, but let's keep in mind most of our pressures came after about five seconds. Seattle's came after about two.

Ppl hate smitty for saying it and maybe he didnt say it right... Sacks Matter but you will only get so many sacks a game.... Its about consistent pressure.

So yea sack matters but consistent pressure is key

I have to believe what Smitty really meant to say was hits and hurries are underrated.
