Anyone spending time worrying about Chase, can spend that time somewhere else.

That guy is and will continue to be an absolute beast.

This.

I tend to agree with JDR, even if his numbers don't reflect it the constant chips and double teams are leaving good opportunities for the other guys, who are also taking advantage of it. If he keeps it up the numbers will eventually reflect his play.

It would have been nice to see the whole season with Matty I. He would probably be having a career year.

Re: Chase Young is PFF's top graded defensive rookie so far

On Wednesday, Washington linebacker Jon Bostic explained how Young's advanced ability against the run and his aptitude defending screens are examples of elite defense that don't exactly show up on the box score.

"A lot of people on the outside, they kind of just look at it like, 'Well, how many sacks does he have?'" Bostic said. "You look at how he's affecting the defense, just in the run game, with his effort running to the ball. On screenplays, how he's playing those. That is, when you talk about a well-rounded defensive end, that's what you're looking for."
---------

His ability to sniff out a screen pass or roll out early and get of his blocker

His ability to come off blockers to tackle the runner by remaining engaged with them and waiting until the right moment to disengage

his IQ and play recognition and reaction is so high already

Of course his first step quickness is just insane

Hes a freak.

Sack do not tell the full story, he's been a great addition for sure.

Gibson is also a top 3 Rookie at PFF as well.

He makes the entire team better. Fuller gets ints because of his pressure. Sweat gets sacks.

Would it be wrong to suggest that with a great MLB and S, we would have a scary dominant D, a la the Suggs/Lewis/Reed combo?

So we could have the top-graded defensive rookie AND top-graded offensive rookie, and some of you are still doubting Rivera?

It doesn't matter. We don't have a QB. You can find players like Gibson in every draft. Did you see what Tua did yesterday? Players like him are not in every draft. We could've had him.

If he finishes the season without getting hurt, I'll think about wishing we drafted him. But it's only been 2 games, including game 1 where he had less than 100 yards passing I believe.

Re: Chase Young is PFF's top graded defensive rookie so far

Another quiet game from Chase. I want to see the snap count but it appears Chase was being subbed out more yesterday. He was playing like 98% of the snaps, even coming off the injury.

Id love to see isolated film of him. Is he losing the hand fighting battle, is he relying on the same move every time, is he able to push a tackle back?

ive seen a nice inside move by him. Ive seen him do a good job of shedding blockers on runs his way. Ive seen him do a good job of reading a screen and reacting.

Ive seen everything but him blow the doors off a tackle, which is what I thought was his specialty given his burst off the snap.

Just seems like he gets slow downed just enough at the LOS.
