Defense in Review, sacks

One last stop on the review of the defense....sacks.  Did BG do a better job of getting to the QB in 2010 than it did in 2011?  BG did have Chris Jones, MAC's #2 sack man, and went from 13 sacks in 2010 to 15 in 2011.  That moved the Falcons from a tie for 7th to sole possession of 7th.

Stats don't always tell the whole story and here it isn't really even close.  A true measure of QB pressure would also include hurries kept on some kind of objective scale...and possibly even include pocket escapes as well.
