What is your source that ranks Sanford 26th out of 88 ?
Even if your source is accurate, Sanford is only slightly above average, and that could improve.
And I will take an interception over a sack or tackle behind the line any time.
Seems you only read the first sentence of the post and ignored the rest!

Overall Harrison 19th, Jamarca 24th out of 88. Not 40, not 57...88.
And I always read the whole post. Always. Doesn't change a thing even if I didn't. Your opinion over Jamarca will still be based on you watching him on the field when he was learning and that he plays SS not FS which doesn't really equate to INT's which you seem to crave.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

One thing we will always differ on I guess is you think that our pass defense (backend) will improve our run defense and I think our run defense (front 4) improves our pass defense.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

BTW, I agree with Caine, Bleacher Report isn't worth reading. I used it as a reference because you quote their articles.
If you don't already, you should write for them.
Like CmacD, I'm a little frustrated with the lack of Lombardi trophies.
So if the explanation for mediocrity is due to scheme or stats, I hesitate to accept either as an excuse.

Sanford for the most part concentrated on the run (Ranked pretty damn high were-as Smitty was at the bottom of the pack) and Smitty excelled in the passing game.
Again, I get that you want him better in coverage. I have no beef with that. I'm just saying that for a kid that was playing FS he didn't do to bad in that regard.
By the way, I am contributing to a site every once in a while when the urge hits me, but its not the BR site. I think Caine would have me blackballed if I did that.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Never said anything of the sort. I think what I implied was that one doesn't necessarily impact the other.
The point we've always debated is whether you need a competent secondary along with a good pass rush to be effective in pass defense. I maintain both are important, whereas you generally emphasize the line play over all else.
