What? What did "most people expect"?

Dareus was brought in to help shore up the run defense. While we aren't the Ravens by any means, our run defense is way better than that abomination we fielded last year. Dareus is probably the biggest difference in our front 7 from last year to this year.

Him and Nick Barnett. Both of them have contributed to the D being able to stop drives SOMETIMES (which is a step up from never)

Dunno why people are arguing, Takeo's right. Darreus has been good, but he hasn't been a game changing player. Not even close. That's what you expect from a draft pick that high, and that's what Von Miller has been so far. I still think he'll get there at some point and still think he was a good pick, but he hasn't been overly noticeable yet.

Pretty much every defensive stat is identical to last year so far. I'd expect a top 3 pick taken on the defensive line to bolster those numbers. Hasn't happened yet.

People can rip Dareus if they want, but stop mentioning Von Miller in the process - it's not like we passed on him...

Yeah, It's not like Von Miller was an Orakpo situation...

And is Dareus still playing at NT since Williams went out? I'd say playing out of position is a pretty valid excuse, if there was to be one
