I loved the Linvail Joseph signing, but what is up with him (and Floyd)?

I think Floyd is actually doing pretty decent. However I am surprised with Linval. He had a great season and did remarkable week 1. Then all of a sudden he is terrible against the run!

Having to play great QBs week after week after week may have that impact on your DTs (and Dline as a whole).

You know, the defense concerns more about the pass, and allow themselves to get beat in the running game (like last night with Rodgers and Lacy). At the same time, the UT/NT must contain their gaps, and not get pushed around at the LOS. Doing that will allow the LBers or defensive backs to come up and make plays.

Floyd looks like an weak run defender. I like him in passing situations, but if he can't do anything against the run, then what do we do? Keep him around as a 3rd down rush specialist?

No question, there is a lot of work to do regarding our Defensive Line.

Through pre-season and the first game, Floyd actually looked very solid (had a great game against St. Louis IMO) and he was actually much better defending the run then rushing the passer. Since his injury, however, he just hasn't looked as explosive and his play has obviously declined. Hopefully that's all that wrong and his play will improve as his body does.

as for Joseph? I have no idea

Joseph re-injured the shoulder he had surgery on during the Saints game.

^^^

If that's the cause, I would give Stephen more reps.

That will make him look like a rookie real quick. Shoulders take a long time to heal and that position won't tolerate weakness.

Stephen has looked quite good in limited reps..

Didn't know about the injury. Then, he should play less, I'd guess. Thanks for the update.
