This was the first game, besides maybe the SD game, where I felt like our front won up front. But even more so this week, as vs. SD it just really was just Abe more than anybody else.
But this week, Babs had a good game, and so did Walker. From the past 2 weeks, Babs seems like he's getting back to his old form. And Abe is putting together a solid year. I wonder if Abe is playing too much. Looking at his snap count thru 5 games (not counting today), this year he's played 240 out of 319 defensive snaps (75.2%). Last year, thru 5 games, he was at 226 snaps out of 330, or about 66.3% of snaps. That averages out to be about 5.7 more snaps per game this year than last year when you consider the percentages. Is that enough to cause him to wear down a bit down the stretch? Because without him, we don't have anybody that can bring consistent pressure off the edge.
