How Important Is An Interior Pass Rusher In Today's NFL?

http://www.kcchiefs.com/news/article...6-a9d552687f9e

Cool article on the KC Chiefs website on a guy I believe will the next All Pro player on our defense. The Chiefs "finally" seem to now be pushing Mike Catapano on KCChiefs.com and I'm very glad to see that because it means that we will see what he can do in 2014. I have been singing this kid's praises since pre season because i feel he is a very talented key piece for this defense but was frustrated watching him sit on the sidelines. I truly believe that having a dominant pass rushing presence on the line (whether it be from 3 technique or 5 technique...or better yet BOTH) is HUGE in making a good defense into a great defense.

People downplay QB pressure and it drives me nuts. You CANNOT stop Peyton Manning (or Philip Rivers or Andrew Luck for that matter) without knocking them off their spots. Just look at the production and the sack totals our defense had the first half of last year and the results it created in the win-loss column...thats because there IS a direct correlation! Also our dominant edge rushers will be more effective when the O Line also has an inside 3 technique rusher they have to worry about as well.

An athletic 290 lbs Catapano who can rush from inside or the outside creates versatility on passing downs. Teamed up with Houston and Hali I really believe all 3 will have double digit sacks in 2014. All today's defenses are really becoming a hybrid blend of 3-4 and 4-3 fronts and a lineman who can rush is a key part. We didn't have that last year (or had on sidelines but didn't use it). I like the addition of Walker but he isnt a true pass rusher...Catapano is. Personally I'd rather see Cat as the starting DE opposite Devito if at 290 he proves to be an effective run stopper, but either way I believe he is a key piece for us in an effective 4 man front on passing downs.

As with all KC fans I was a bit frustrated watching the NFL's most dominant defense slide and become our achilles heel ultimately costing us a playoff win. With no pressure on the QB the second half of year I was frustrated knowing we had a guy who averaged 1.2 sacks a game his senior year sitting on the sidelines. But apparently he was being groomed and making the obvious transition going from a small school to the NFL. Based on all the press coming from inside the Chiefs organization I'm encouraged that we will get to see what a 23 year old 2nd year bigger and better #77 can do.

I said it last year and still believe that Catapano and Poe rushing alongside Houston and Hali will be a VERY disruptive front on passing downs. 3 double digits sack guys = defensive success. Pressure busts pipes. If Catapano can break out and have a double digit sack season it will go a LONG way in getting back to the playoffs and NOT giving up a 4 TD lead. We need a 2013 defensive draft picks like Commings or Cat (or both) to step up and become key contributors in 2014 to build and improve on what we did last year. Since we aren't building through free agency it has to come from within. This guy stepping up would be huge.

He never got to play. When he did he did a good job.

Don't you think if he was actually good, they would have found a way to get him on the field?

We could have a future HOF NT on the roster and we wouldn't know because they don't really rotate Poe.

This happens with players all the time. Look at guys like Jamal Charles, Joe Horn, etc...

I find it funny that Powe never got to play on the Chiefs but yet the Chiefs are the same team that will gift free spots to Sanders Commings, Hussain Abdullah, Joe Mays, Mike Catapano, Rishaw Johnson and AJ Jenkins who have shown absolutely nothing as capable NFL starters, but have every chance to be on the Chiefs. But for Powe, he never got that chance, that's only for every other position on the roster.

I think they would rotate Poe more if they thought they had somebody capable behind him.

They need to no matter who's 2nd string. If they don't they have a gassed player who's nearly as ineffective at the end of the year as the b/u...

Contracts aside, if we had the opportunity to replace Poe with Suh would anyone be willing to take it? I was having a similar debate with a Lions fan I know and he kept saying Suh> Poe.

I know Suh plays 3 tech, and Poe is more of a nose... but still.

I wish we had a DC who was smart enough to try and find out whether or not that could be true.
