On that first play, sure would be nice if we had a DT who could actually push the pocket back into the QB when he's got a 1v1. Instead, Wormley just plays pattycake and ensures that Ben has a nice step up lane to throw from.

What really annoys me on most of the plays is the fact that when we bring pressure we usually back of and allow the easy completion underneath for 5-10 yards! If we trusted our pass rushers and our scheme we would be pressing receivers, tightends and backs at the LOS and challenge all underneath throws.

We've been doing this since at least 2012. It's basically the entire defensive scheme. Bring pressure + give 10 yards of cushion = offenses with non-idiot QB's just throw quick slants all day.
