ive got alot of confidence in our rush this year, sacks are great but lets take the ball from the quarterbacks, and force some turnovers, as good as our line is they need to focus on what they do after winning thier rush. we better get a fumble outta hero tannehill on sunday

Our DL is very avg.  

Have you watched some tape on them? If they are average when they are getting double and some times tripled teamed , they are better then average.  Sacks look good on paper but pressuring the Qb and getting them to make mistakes that lead to turnovers is way better.

No they arent.  They have no pass rush at all and their edges struggle to hold it against good outside zone teams.  That is TN bread and butter and why Henry kills us every year.  Wake up and stop being deluded by your fandom

i dont believe that really... i know we are better than last year for 1 and limited kc to nothing last week. i think our dline can be the best in the league, both our interior and edge rushers are supposed to be great. its all ive heard this offseason

Nothing about our D line hints it will be best in the league.

We have a solid DL. I can't say we are the best though, but they certainly aren't a weakness on the team IMO.

 

The Jags beat us by short passes taking advantage of our scheme, which didn't give them that much time to get the QB. That's far more on the LBs and slot CBs (Moore) then anyone on the DL

 

However when they played the Chiefs, they controlled and hurried Mahommes better than most other teams ever do. People that are downplaying that are just being silly.

 

They also did a solid job against the Texans, especially Paye late in the game. 

 

In regards to Run D, our DL is legit for sure, especially with Stewart dominating the NT position.

 

Paye is also only going to get better at pass rushing. He's already close to elite at Run D/ setting the edge. Yannick did very well this week rushing the passer as well.

 

Buckner not playing might hurt this upcoming week though.
