    He had 15 tackles last week. I thought it was his best game all season.

    Absolutely, very reminiscent of his rookie season. He doesn't seem like a huge big play guy but he is a guy who when healthy and playing well is all over the field and this past sunday I felt like he was in on every tackle. Hopefully he carries that into the coming weeks.

    Amount of tackles should never be the sole basis for the grading of a performance. It's but a small picture.

    He was excellent on Sunday though, he was plugging gaps and shooting gaps like a young Junior. Very strong in the tackle, and covered well when asked to drop back, save one occasion where he seemed to feel the injury and gave up on the plant and turn. I'll not blame him for that though.

    I also remember him pressuring Garrard a few times too, so though he didn't record any sacks he was still effective in the pass rush. I think we're starting to see him get back into form after the knee injury. Perfect timing too.

    Even when the injury was still affecting him he managed to improve his pass rushing skills. Last year he had no sacks and this year he has 1.5. Can't wait to see how he does in the playoffs.

    he seems to be hitting stride as are alot of the young players......

    I believe BB has 'released the hounds' with his scheme and these young guys have been more able to put themselves in place to make bigger plays......there's alot more confidence there now, and the free-moving pass-down defense is letting them get a little crazy out there which is cool.....I think they will need alot of that scheme against the texans since the texans are lousy running the ball

    I also feel BB is loosening the reigns a tiny bit and digging another page or two deeper into the defensive playbook.

    Missing a knee ligament will do that to you (assuming the reports of a complete MCL tear, i.e., a grade 3 sprain, were accurate). Ask Shawne Merriman.
