Nesta starting over Miller reminds me of Patchan starting over GR
We all saw what the d looked like with Willis dominating. Moving up in the pocket is refuge vs our speed rush ends.Worrying about DTs has become automatic over the last 10 years. I'll stop when I see pee stains on QBs running away from the center of the pocket. DE sacks are great but those panic throws from a collapsing middle of a pocket always seemed to result in picks that scar the qbs' memories and bring rewards in 4th quarters. Lack of Miami level DTs and overall speed are what has been missing for years. Oh sure we need better QB play but no offense makes cowards of the other team.
This is exactly why Rousseau gets moved inside on passing downs. I know the FSU quarterbacks got tired of seeing #15 in their face as soon as they dropped back.We all saw what the d looked like with Willis dominating. Moving up in the pocket is refuge vs our speed rush ends.
Truth, he did almost all of his damage inside in that game. Honestly with how long his arms are and how hard it is for anyone to get hands on his body, i'm not sure he couldn't play DT on all downs.This is exactly why Rousseau gets moved inside on passing downs.

Yeah Miller came here as a huge dude. I think it's conditioning but he made big strides year one to two in that regard. I think year three he plays a lot more and is possibly our best player on the interior.When Miller actually gets snaps he makes plays....maybe it’s his conditioning that’s limiting his playing time??
Ford seems very solid vs the run and avg. as a pass rusher but this could be just how they scheme their DTs vs the Pass
It’s been stated that Nesta was playing hurt most of the season but to me he still seems limited vs the run or pass. Can he live up to his hype?? We’ll see soon enough since he’s fully healthy
Ford was a Green Tree AA coming out of fall camp and flashed a few times and that’s about it. I know that Nesta was injured but when he was healthy he did very little. Miller is going into his 3rd year and was a developmental player. Holley and HH are gonna be RFr. To me, it’s a glaring issue unless two of those guys improve a ton without an off-season.
Yea the main reason Johnathan Taylor had like 5000 rushing yards on us , the ony off game willis really had was against BCWhen did this happen? I missed it since he didn’t play.
Couldn't say it more perfectly, i think nesya take a big step this yearDudes need to quit expecting interior linemen to flourish in year one or two out of HS. Those dudes almost always take time. Even the great ones.
Look at guy like Suh at Nebraska. Didn't do shyt till his junior year. Then, he absolutely blew up like he came out of nowhere. Same with all of our truly great DTs. Most of them weren't shyt till their 3rd or 4th year out of HS.
It's real man business in the interior. Kids tend to get abused in there.
I expect Ford, Silvera, and Miller to be hosses in the middle this year. Miller is a guy I can see being one of those "where'd he come from?" guys.
