Their pressure comes from dependable linemen who can attack, creative blitz schemes that create pressure from the middle, and outstanding edge rushers (which we have).

We're not as far off as you think. Changing scheme alone is going to go a really long way.
you do realize there is a difference between PASS RUSH and QUARTERBACK SACKS

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.
