This is why sites like PFF are dangerously stupid. Fans pull stats from there to point out that a 2-gap DE is not a great pass rusher.
If he is doing his job, then he is commanding a double team on the O line so that the OLB's like Harrison and Woodley get one on one pass rush matchups and win. Thing is that our OLB's didnt apply much pressure this year.
