  1. Yes. His speed rushes can be more effective.

  2. No. Regardless of where he lines up, he still cannot set the edge.

    Why would they be unhappy with Watt's production as a rookie? He had 7 sacks and he hit the rookie wall like most rookies do :shrug:.

    Lloyd and hairyson were monsters. Seems like the backers now are getting smaller. Give me the beefcake roiders who eat qbs vs these coverage guys

    He was probably worn down by the time the playoff game with the Jags, he hit the rookie wall.

    Absolutely. Although, part of the problem in the Jags game was he kept taking inside routes and letting them run for first down outside. Also part of being a rookie.

    I have always theorized Bud might be better rushing from the right side... and then when Watt got that huge sack from the left against the Ravens I started thinking about it again...

    Really I think the biggest issue is getting to the bottom of why Bud takes those super wide arcs towards the QB. Would a side change rectify it? Secondly, can Watt set the edge on the left if they do switch sides?
