Whole Defensive line needs to have a good game, especially if Eli's ankle is still gimpy... but yeah I like McCray's hustle but I haven't seen him reach the QB this season much.. I know he hasn't been in on many snaps, and has had the back problem. Hopefully the Bye Week helps him get closer to full strength.
Ah I didn't know that, he has been getting some pressure... I know he was close to a sack vs the Jets but Sanchez just get rid of the ball before McCray came down on him.He's tied for first on the team in QB pressures and is second on the team in QB hits.
Honestly I'll just be happy if Will Smith and Charles Grant continue to play at the same level. McCray is great for giving these guys a rest but Smith/Grant are finally playing up to their contracts.
And I'll tell you a secret......the D lineman who is so far having a monster season that virtually no one is talking about is Sederick Ellis. The guy is penetrating, disrupting and is the main reason the Saints have been so good at stopping the run (even with run stuffer Clancy out). The Bills Center was so worried about getting his head up and position on Ellis he dribbled nearly every snap out of the shot gun to Edwards. One of the reasons Grant and Smith have looked so good on the ends is because Ellis has been destroying the interior blocking of the opposition. Ellis' play is one of the main reasons for the massive improvement of the Defense.
