    Re: Chances running out for Udeze

    He led the Vikings with 13 tackles for loss
    That's what I was talking about in an earlier thread When I said I would rather see him with 0 QB sacks & a lot of stops for little or no gain rather than a few QB sacks & give up yardage on the field . Yet I was laughed at by some who claimed Udeze was barely mediocre at tackling & QB sacks were the the all important stats that mattered to them.

    It doesn't matter to me if a player sacks a QB for a loss of yards or a running back, full back or receiver for a loss of yards. A loss of yards is a loss of yards & Udeze led the team with 13 of them & from playing out of his normal position on the opposite side of the line.

    i think moving back to his natural position, and the return of EJ, the williams in the middle and our LB corps is gonna show way more qb attacks then before.
    I'd say he gets 10+ tackle for loss, and 9 sacks

    the D though is my least concern.. we reazlly need a stable OI to help win the games.. not force our D to win them for us.

    Lets not forget that the new D-coord should also help with new schemes that could help with the pass rush/defense.

    He is not a game changer, he may never be and that is fine with me.

    However he is a really good lineman, one that I am proud to have on my team.
    His sack total is not good way to measure what he does.

    I was pretty suprised with myself for only coming up with such a short defense for Udeze.
    Normally I get on my soap box and preach.

    Guess I am wearing down.

    The whole reason that Leslie Frazier was hired was to keep the Tampa2/Dungy2/Indy2 system in place - and NOT to institute new schemes.

    Udeze gets a slight Mulligan for playing out-of-position.
    But a DE starting 16 games and not getting even half-a-sack by falling on the QB is really really really stinky.

    I'm more excited about season 2 of the Ray Edwards era, to be honest.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Good point.
    But, there will obviously be changes and alterations with a Tomlinless D.
