    Being the 5th pick in the draft gives us high expectations. He’ll never be Von Miller.

    I wouldn't say concerned, but I had a thought yesterday that I wonder if he'd be quicker if he was like 10 lbs lighter. Shane Ray, Von Miller and Shaq Barrett all weigh ~250 lbs - Chubb is 270.

    Would that make him worse against the run? Denver needs one of the defensive ends to set the edge, and I’m not sure Ray and Barrett are very good at that.

    Also, it’s week 2 of his rookie season.

    Let’s not forget that most of the time, he lines up vs the opposing LT. Von gets to line up vs the “inferior” RT most plays. At Seattle, Chubb lined up against pro bowler Duane Brown most of the game. Von got a scrub RT to feast on. Vs the Raiduhs other than Von’s 2 sacks (one called back on a penalty), the defense really got no pressure because of the dink and dunk passing game and complete lack by Woods to play press with our DBs (lined up 10+ yds off the ball) to give the pass rush some help.

    Also, Von and Chubb will be better if we can play with the lead. We led for 6 whole seconds yesterday. Chubb has already shown he’s better vs the run than Ray or Barrett.

    The Oakland offense is designed to wear front seven players out by getting them to run sideline to sideline. If your offense canít get more than one first down in a half you are usually going to be screwed because your d will get gassed. I honestly thought our D was looking dominant in the first quarter.

    Did anyone notice we only had the scrum rush going in the first quarter? Thatís because our guys were freaking exhausted and we had to start sitting Miller and Chubb for an entire series at a time. We had to rotate our OLBís after the first quarter. I really hope going forward we are quicker to make adjustments on the fly and give Keenum the option to audible to PAP against 8 man fronts. Waiting an entire half of football is stupid.

    No. His first game he had half a sack and graded out well in the run game. Yesterday he had issues. If he wasn't out there playing with a high motor, then I would be concerned. I am predisposed to liking the guy so I have my bias. However, I had Sunday Ticket going yesterday and between four games going at once I saw a lot of sketchy LB play. Especially in coverage.

    Does it excuse the **** up? No. But, let's also be clear, had that FB caught the ball Chubb is enough of an athlete to contest that play. Does that mean he would have come up with the stop? Nope, but he very well could have.

    Von's rookie year, it took a blowout loss by the hands of Aaron Rodgers for him to really find his groove. After that week 4 game, he really started to take off. Very similar set of circumstances too, because Von had Elvis Dumervil on the other side of him at the time. I expect for everything to come together for Chubb soon.

    He graded our really well against the run the first week. He had short stops and a tfl. I donít know how yesterday graded out yet. Of course saying heís better against the run than Shane Ray isnít saying much.

    He had 6 pressures and a half sack in his first NFL game. Scrub.
