Debo, Rico, Takk, Tru, Oliver, Neal, Campbell, Grady, and Bailey all had great games 

Vic is still bad, funny how much leeway coverage sacks buy him. He had one good rush against Johnson all game, and one good diagnosis of a screen that was impressive since he couldn’t even read the QB. He dropped in coverage a few times and was fine

But overall he adds so little out there. Stalls on nearly every single bull rush, gets pushed around the arc on his speed rushes. Watching on run plays guys like Takk and Bailey set the edge with a TE and then actually disengage and make a play on the ball carrier, or split upfield against the TE and make a TFL, but then when it’s Vic he’s simply occupying a space when he’s out there.. the difference is night and day, but it ends after this season thankfully

Very valid choice. Team Defense means it can be a different hero making a play game to game. Oliver got beat deep on the Nelson drop, but he came back to tackle Ertz for the game winning play.

It looked like he was playing short zone on that play...he released Nelson deep to Neal. Neal also whiffed on assignment when Nelson beat him up for that 4th down catch.

I’m gonna take Takk he had a rough time of it last week but **** if he wasn’t putting hands on the QB every other play.

The dude was straight wrecking his edge on a consistent basis.
