    I compiled stats from 2021-present from Watt/Parsons/Bosa/Garret. They all played 35 games except Watt played only 27.

    Passes defended
    Watt 14
    Parsons 7
    Garret 7
    Bosa 2

    Forced fumbles
    Watt 8
    Parsons 7
    Bosa 6
    Garret 3

    Fumble recoveries
    Watt 5
    Parsons 4
    Garret 1
    Bosa 0

    Watt 2
    Parsons 0
    Bosa 0
    Garret 0

    Bosa 34
    Garret 33
    Watt 32
    Parsons 29.5

    Solo tackles
    Parsons 112
    Bosa 83
    Watt 82
    Garret 73

    Tackles for loss
    Bosa 41
    Parsons 37
    Garret 36
    Watt 32

    QB hits
    Bosa 84
    Garret 64
    Parsons 62
    Watt 60

    With 8 games missed Watt led 4 categories. 2 sacks less than the leader, 9 TFL less than the leader, and 4 qb hits to being 2nd there.

    Watt is the best all around defensive player. Parsons, Bosa, Garret in that order after. Watt doesnt have an all star defense like dallas/san fran either so most focus on him.

    Agree with all except the final part.

    From 2021 to even now, there is this guy for Pittsburgh named Cameron Heyward. Now, he will not be able to play for while... but don't shortchange his impact. A HOF Level Defensive Tackle or a HOF Level EDGE?!

    For two seasons... teams had to pick one or the other. Regardless of which one teams picked, Heyward or Watt would have a field day more often than not. Both Heyward and Watt have had double digit sacks during that time.

    Regarding Parsons?! He is their main rush. Beyond him?! Since 2021, only Dorance Armstrong has crossed eight sacks or more per Pro Football Reference. No other player comes even close.

    I agree with you about cam, I forget how much of a force he is. Dallas secondary can cover their guys more than 1-2 seconds though, we can’t most of the time lol.

    Garrent totally outshone by Watt yet again, and Highsmith for that matter. Parsons is a beast.

    They are all amazing and I doubt that the fans of any team would swap their guy for another.

    I do think TJ has outperformed Myles Garrett since they came into the league and TJ seems to show up with a big play at the most crucial times. I haven’t seen Garrett do that nearly as much.
