This was the first game, besides maybe the SD game, where I felt like our front won up front. But even more so this week, as vs. SD it just really was just Abe more than anybody else.
But this week, Babs had a good game, and so did Walker. From the past 2 weeks, Babs seems like he's getting back to his old form. And Abe is putting together a solid year. I wonder if Abe is playing too much. Looking at his snap count thru 5 games (not counting today), this year he's played 240 out of 319 defensive snaps (75.2%). Last year, thru 5 games, he was at 226 snaps out of 330, or about 66.3% of snaps. That averages out to be about 5.7 more snaps per game this year than last year when you consider the percentages. Is that enough to cause him to wear down a bit down the stretch? Because without him, we don't have anybody that can bring consistent pressure off the edge.

Why hasn't Sidbury got more snaps? He should be used more, no idea why Nolan has soured on him. He has to realize that Abraham needs his breaks. Walker is slowly coming along and creating some havoc. Very intrigued about what Corey Peters can do when he comes back.

Other than Babs and Abe our D' line isn't much. At the same time both Abe and Babs are playing great.... I'm especially pleased with Babs, he's looking like a pro bowler, best start he's had in 2-3 years. It's really crazy how much production we get out of older players.
