Am I the only one that feels like we blitzed a ton this year? I keep on seeing posters say that DQ rarely blitzed.
TG do you have any stat on this?
I agree, I don't get the whole we didn't blitz deal. I thought we blitzed as much as any other team.
Not only did we blitz plenty, we blitzed from multiple angles/positions and Quinn had an uncanny knack for dialing them up at the perfect times.
I think it's moreso we never had a true rushing lb, so it appeared nonexistent at times. We blitz a lot with buck and corners this year, as well as safety blitzes with Evans quite a few times
I feel like we run blitzed quite alot, but on pass downs when we blitzed it was negated or picked up rather easily, at tleast it seemed to me.
Beatings will continue until morale improves
I started keeping track of that, I think in the Georgia game. After signing day when things slow down a little, I plan on going back and adding the pass rush stats with blitzes for all the previous games. Just one more thing we'll have this offseason that no one else will have.

we really didn't have much of a pass rush it seemed, it seemed like floyd was our most consistent pass rusher
was one of my complaints
who lead us in sacks this yr?
LORD FORGIVE ME FOR THE GOON DADDY IS COMING OUT TONIGHT
Technically, Easley with 4. But really they credited Floyd with a sack that was clearly caused by Easley in the Sugar Bowl, so it should be 5.
that is pathetic
Using sacks as the sole measure of pass rush efficiency can be misleading. You can negatively affect QBs/plays and force turnovers without actually recording sacks. Our pass rush wasn't "all world" but it wasn't as bad as the sack statistics would lead you to believe. Guys like McCray and Fowler generated a lot more pressure than some people give them credit for.
I've been saying this all year with regards to Florida. It looks a hell of a lot better on tape than it does on the stat sheet.
Numbers wise yes. But I feel we had good pressure on the QBs all year
with how much we blitzed leading the team in sacks with 4 is sad, hell Ropo nearly doubled that 2 yrs ago and he had a meh yr
to put things into perspective...jarvis jones had as many sacks in 1 game vs us last yr than anyone on our team had all season this yr
It didn't seem to me that we got to the QB much. Several qbs seemed to have plenty of time to make throws. A great qb, like Bridgewater, could pick us apart with that extra second of time. I hope next season we have not only qb pressure, but the actual sacks which create longer down situations, make the other team fear our pass rush, and create more turnovers. As good as the D was, this is an area for improvement.
Gunga galunga...gunga -- gunga galunga
UF didn't have a dominant pass rusher, but as a unit they were good not great.
UF had about 30 sacks.
That's good in my book, looking at the schedule.
Bowling Green was a quick pass style of offense.
-aTm attacks using quick passes, and they have one of the top OLs in the nation
-Nobody hits Bray, behind that OL (great in pass pro)
- Franklin and Murray combined for 7 picks
-Mett was sacked 4 times (iirc)
- And UF normally dominated the T.O.P.
