right?

Rushing the passer is what milkman was talking about. Sacking the quarterback is part of that, but it is the cherry on top. You can generate a pass rush and NOT sack the QB. (Hurry, Interception, Incomplete, etc) And it counts a RUSH. Sacks arent the true indicator of a team that can truly rush the passer, though it does help sometimes. Just because Brett Kiesel doesnt have a lot of sacks doesnt mean he can't generate a pass rush up the middle (Not saying him specifically, but as an example)

That is clearly something we havent had in a long time. Hence me saying, 2 rushbackers does not a pass rush make. Which is correct for our current make up, and why we are one of the WORST pass rushing teams in the NFL. In terms of rushing the pass and QB sacks.
Yes, I recognize the difference. I am not looking at this thread in a vacuum. I know that you have several threads where you said we need to blow this defense up and have implied we need lots of elite pass rushers.

We don't get pass rush from our LBs or Safeties because Romeo doesn't blitz enough. Berry and DJ are more than capable of blitzing effectively in a zone blitz. They just need a scheme to let them loose. On the D-line, modern 3-4's allow the D-line to stunt. Romeo has our guys reading and reacting the majority of the time, and playing a pure gap-control.

Scheme is going to fix a lot of our pass rush problems. If not, there's 2 guys (our DEs)... and it's possible we have 1 or 2 quality roster guys already, but they just need a scheme that will let them loose.
