    But he doesn't have the intimidation factor of Merriman. The two are a perfect combination. We are lucky to be seeing these two play together.

    I think what really matters is sacks and pressures by the entire defensive team. The better your pass rush is the better your defensive pass defense will do. Merriman is just part of it. And I'm sure any defensive player would say the same thing.:yes:

    They need to add Shaun Phillips to that list. I mean, he does lead the AFC in sacks right now.

    I agree. Phillips has the fastest first step, and edge speed right now in the NFL. Bar none.
