I think if our offense is still potent and puts us ahead in games we will see plenty of pat in on passing downs since teams will get away from running and start passing more on 1st and 2nd down like in years past. But if our offense cant put up the points that it has in the past then no pat will not be a huge factor in the pass rush. But he should be awsome in run stopping. I cant wait to see him play.
I see it helping the run defense. I would be really surprised if it free's Kevin Williams up on passing plays though.
I still like Spencer, I think him and Pat rotating is going to make the line very solid and very flexible with the different stunts and formations we can run.
