Why it's not a complete loss:
Timmons is a monster. He just needs another athletic linebacker next to him so he can have flexibility regarding rushing or dropping back.
Would you have said that Woodley is not elite after he got 9 sacks in 11 games last year? Would you have said Timmons was a monster after last year when his production dropped by 40 tackles from the previous season?
Looks to me like you're mostly reading the stat sheet at the end of season to determine player value.
Teams run to the right vs the left about 80/20. Teams run at Ziggy / LE based on their own personnel not the personnel of other teams. If Keisel was better against the run than Ziggy he would be playing LE. Period.
