This guy is an odd player, especially since we know his "boom" games aren't garbage pressures/sacks. Dude was huge against Baltimore and Nawlins.
When they met the first time, Mathews was already a huge part of the offense and Houston was forced to set the edge of the defense. He had to favor his outside gap which takes away that quick inside move for him. He played the same technique last night. Can't say I blame RC for rolling that way, it's either take away Gates or take away Mathews. Tough for such a poor defense to do both.
Hali has lost that explosiveness he had and to me, that is the biggest problem with the defense.
