    Re: Wally on playing defense against Weeden

    Watching the way the defense played that game, it amazes me how well they have played with almost no semblance of a pass rush from the front four year after year. About the only time the DL was disruptive in that game was when they got a paw on a Weeden pass. Good thing that ISU has the linebackers back this year because most of the best from the defensive backfield has graduated.

    One of these years, I look forward to a disruptive defensive line. Maybe this will be the year ISU gets that back, but I'll be surprised if it is.

    I will gladly eat crow for some sacks, FF's, etc from the D line in 2012 but I've been saying "maybe this is the year we get consistent pressure" for like 5 years...I'll only believe it when I see it.

    "Because he's so accurate, it was hard to defense everything he did," said Burnham, who went 1-1 against Weeden.
    No it was pretty bad.

    I'll go out on a limb here and say that "pressure may affect QB's accuracy" is probably the no **** statement of the century.

    We need another Tuba. He was near unblockable even when he was getting double teamed.

    Re: Wally on playing defense against Weeden

    I am so thankful that I was there to witness that game! I know there hasn't been anything like it in Cyclone history and will be hard to match in the future. But if it is matched, I hope I'm there, too!

    I'm excited about the guys we have on the roster, lot of young guys but maybe the d line could be a strength in a couple years. If you can win the trenches you can win a lot of games.

    Yeah, didn't read the article but every QB in the history of the game is negatively affected by pressure. Baqck in the 90's my Eagles were not good and the Cowboys ruled the NFL but the Eagles always beat the Cowboys. Why? Because they knocked Aikman on his *** in the first qurter and got him rattled. The greatest QBs of all time don't like getting hit.
