Carl Lawson - Torn ACL

Recommended Posts

He was still getting good pressure even if the sack numbers weren't there.  Now QBs will have all day to throw and look like Fitzpatrick did against us...

good pressure on 15 snaps/game.  

And QB's already had a ton of time to throw, if they want it.  But the fact is that they don't need it.  You can have any sort of route over the middle of the field you want.  Just find the TE or WR lined up with a LB, and there's your 15 yard gainer.  Only takes 2 seconds to get the ball out for those routes, and there's no time for the rush to hit home that fast.

I know this is stupid, but someone help me out here.

Carl Lawson tore his ACL during the game on Sunday.  Presumably while he was on the field.

Yet, everywhere i look, the snap counts don't have him playing a single snap.  ???

Feel for you guys. The injury aside, the Ravens have a similar situation with Tim Williams. He's a great pass rusher that generates pressure after pressure but for some reason gets very little snaps. 

Even found this article from PFF highlighting the two when they were dominating in college-

How has he looked for you guys so far? He was one of my wife's favorite players at Auburn. 

He’s one of those guys where the stats don’t tell the whole story. He got a lot of pressures just could get the sacks. Quarterbacks have been getting the call out super quick against us
