The pass rush looked weak.

It's nice that the back up QB looked good. All the back ups looked good.

But it would be really nice to have an elite pass rusher. That would be a difference maker.
Next seasons wish list

Nothing wrong with getting more pass rushers

But if you watched you can see how vanilla the defense was. Almost no blitzes. Gettleman went heavy on cover guys. Expect Bettcher to manufacture a rush by being way more aggressive than he was last year.
The pass rush is weak?

Sorry, couldn’t resist lol.
agree  
mdthedream : 8/8/2019 11:14 pm : link
didn't see any passrush at all.
I have a feeling next seasons draft/offseason  
Breeze_94 : 8/8/2019 11:15 pm : link
will focus heavily on EDGE rushers. Golden is a 1 year stop-gap most likely.

Carter to me has the makings of a good all around player, but I don't see him as an elite pass rusher.

Mostly backups played and they got some pressure. They moved Darnold off his spot as well on the play he hit the TE when Peppers turned him loose. Nice movement and throw by Darnold there.

Realistically we'll know much more after Game 3 of the preseason than we do now.

A+
Xmen seemed over matched at times. One decent bull rush.

Did not see Carter do much....and did M.Golden even play?

Martin did a nice job on outside contain on a couple of running plays
Pass rush biggest concern

going into the season and nothing I saw last night changed that. Could be another year of giving up late leads...

A few things...

1. We actually did get decent push on a few of the passing downs. We just didn't get home. Darnold was able to squirt away and find an open man downfield.
2. Bettcher is going to do a lot of blitzing this year - don't expect to see much of that in preseason. He's not going to show anyone his real blitz packages before Dallas.
3. Expect this to be a bit of a problem most of the year - pass rushers are one of the few things still necessary here that we weren't able to secure this offseason.

I hope you're right, but we were told the same thing last year about Bettcher - I'll beleive all the blitzing when I see it. Quite frankly, I'm half expecting them to drop Lawrence II into pass coverage.................

Big difference in the DB depth this year. I think that will allow him to use more front 7 guys aggressively.

A healthy Jenkins + Baker, Love, Ballentine and Beal on top of Peppers/Bethea should, on paper, be a very big upgrade from guys like BW Webb and Curtis Riley.
If Jake Carlock continues to play well, he should make the team

and contribute as a blitzer/pass rusher.
There  
AcidTest : 8/9/2019 9:08 am : link
was very little pressure from the edges.
It's likely going to be an issue this season  
JonC : 8/9/2019 9:12 am : link
but last night isn't telling us much, it's still early.
