Dophins Pass Rushers, and Thats All She Wrote

peter weberContributor IMay 15, 2009

I'm focusing on three key players here; Cameron Wake, Joey Porter, and Jason Taylor

Wake; as a rookie in the Canadian Football League, Cameron/Derek Wake got 16 sacks, and won both the defensive rookie of the year and defensive player of the year.  His second year, got 23 sacks, and once again won defensive player of the year, and you have to guess if there was a sophomore player of the year, he would have won it.

Porter; funky stat about him, in all of NFL history, every player that has more INTs that Porter, he has more sacks than that person.  And every player that has more sacks than him, Porter has more INTs than that person.  So we know he's versatile, but his strong side is obviously sacks, as he had 17 1/2 last year(18? can't remember)

Taylor; not much to say except he was Defensive player of the year in 06, and leads all active players among sacks.  'nuff said.

How I see 2 & long/3rd down? Porter and Taylor in the dirt, with Wake on the edge.  Watch out everybody.
