Leonard Williams job isn't to get sacks. I'm by no means saying he's played great this season. But he plays a position that eats space that allows others to get the praise. Like Williamson, Lee and Adams for example. The problem on defense last night was 100% the playcalling. We were aggressive and coming after Taylor the whole 1st half. We got a lead and Mayfield came in and we went to pansy defensive calls. We quit sending creative blitzes mostly and sat on our heels. Which made us lose and made Mayfield look better than he is.

Without Leo, guys like Jordan Jenkins aren't getting sacks. We need an edge in the worst way, but at least we don't need to worry about stopping the run as much.

I think the worst part of our play call was not just that we stopped sending the blitz, but we sat back in zone. We made the windows as big as possible with time to throw. It's like Bowles assumed Mayfield would just flub it up looking for the check down just because he's a rookie down 14 points. Mayfield's never played scared, but it looked like that what our defense was assuming.
