Default Should we blitz Timmons more often?

He led the NFL in sack efficiency and I think he can be like Kendrell Bell and be a 9-10 sack guy from ILB.

I remember when he pummeled Cassell but also got run over by McClain :\

I was actually surprised we didn't blitz him more. We did less of that criss-cross blitz that Foote and Farrior did so well last year. I think we need more of that so that the opposing O-lines can't predict where are blitzes are coming from. I think that's part of why Harrison didn't have as much production this year...teams assumed he was coming, directed their extra blocking toward him and accepted the consequences if it came from elsewhere. We never really made teams pay for that.

I'm guessing we didn't do the criss cross blitz that often was because of Timmons' ankle injury that he had to start the season. He was probably still a little hobbled until midway through the year.

I say yes because he seems to blitz well and gets to the QB.

He is a very good blitzer. I think this could even be his breakout year now that he's got a good amount of experience under his belt.

He just needs to be careful to breakdown once he closes in on his target. I am LOVIN' the potential in this guy. His football skills and acumen are a bit rough in all aspects, but i think we've all seen more and more flashes of brilliance out of him the last two years.


It's quite a luxury we have here in Pittsburgh.....4 linebackers who can blitz well


how many teams can say that?

hed all ILB's with 7 sacks last season (his first as a starter).

is he even 23 years old yet? i bet there will be a few rookies drafted in april older than him.
