Faith in young pass rushers

Posted by Chris Brown on October 26, 2011 – 3:28 pm

With the pass rushing responsibilities now falling to younger players like Danny Batten, Arthur Moats and Antonio Coleman, veteran linebacker Nick Barnett isn’t concerned. He’s got confidence in the young trio of edge rushers.

“I think we’ve got some good young guys who can get out there and blitz and come off that edge,” he said. “I think Moats, Danny Batten and we get one of our good guys back (in Coleman), so we’ll see what happens.”

Moats, who says it appears as though he’ll stay outside with the loss of Shawne Merriman, confirmed there was a big emphasis on winning more of the one-on-one pass rush battles to get to the opposing quarterback more often. 

“We’re all just saying let’s get home, let’s finish,” he said. “All the one-on-one’s, we’re not being as successful as we’d like to and we need to definitely step that up and we’ve taken that upon ourselves as outside linebackers this week to make sure they can just execute.”
