do we have a team that will be able to get pressure on the QB with out having to bliz every down?
The problem last year was coverage in the secondary. Pressure has to develop unless their is a complete breakdown by the OL. The longer a QB has to stand in the pocket, the greater chance that pocket has to collapse.

With the secondary looking like it has improved that means offenses will take longer to develop a play leading to more pressure.

your thoughts?

I think it is a valid concern. I also think that it is the whole defense. The line. The line backers. And the secondary all have to play together. But time will tell.
