    This is the first time Barrett is a starter.

    It’s silly to assume he’ll slip into some statistical norm when no such thing exists for him as a starter.

    Teams will have to be careful about what they believe the norm for him will be. Too many players get big money or highly drafted because of one good season that often doesn’t get duplicated or surpassed.

    Again, a healthy Chubb who regains his form will make this what if game unnecessary.

      I don’t think it’s silly at all even if it his first full season starting. Derek Wolfe as a rookie posted 6 sacks, most people would assume he would build off that since he was a rookie but when you look back at his sacks they were either coverage sacks and/or cleanup sacks. Good on him for finishing the play but that doesn’t make him a good pass rusher and until this season he’s never been able to generate pressure quickly, and even then his 7 sacks this year came in 4 games.

      Back to Barrett I do think it’s important to note those 7 sacks came against a hobbled Cam who was already notorious for holding the ball too long as well as having poor pocket awareness and a rookie QB making his first start trying to get adjusted to the speed of the game. Is he a solid pass rusher? Absolutely, but I still don’t think he’s a guy you want to be your top pass rusher. I won’t pretend to know how quickly he got his sacks as I haven’t watched him much this season but he wasn’t an explosive pass rusher here and often won through technique and power which generally caps a pass rusher’s ceiling. If he’s somehow become more explosive then yeah he can be a great edge rusher but I’ll need to see more than one season to say that.

        In the SB, Von dominated the Panthers and Patriots RT who the worst RTs in the league. Is there a qualifier on that peformance as well?

          Von has also registered over 100 sacks. There’s no need to qualify his performance because then you’ll be doing it for his entire career. Shaq is in uncharted territory for himself as a player so if you’re trying to determine if he’s a flash in the pan or not you have to qualify his performances. A month later against that same Carolina team with Kyle Allen, Shaq registered 1 tackle and that was it.

          Edit: also to note the Patriots RT only allowed 2 sacks that season, the Panthers only 5. I’m willing to bet they were far from the worst RTs in the NFL that year.

            I think if you put qualifiers on one situation, you should do it for all of them. They are pretty similar situations.

            If player does really well against bad players and you say he dominated and did great then player B does great against bad players and you say, well he did well but they were bad players so not so great...that seems like a double standard.

              You want to qualify all of Von’s career? Von has proven himself over the course of time, Shaq hasn’t. So far Shaq has proven that for one year (a contract year at that) he was capable of putting up big sack numbers.

              Even Justin Houston put up 22 sacks one season, only 2 other seasons over 10 and none over 12. I bet KC wished they qualified that 22 sack season before paying him elite money for 9 sacks a year after.

                Mike remmers and Marcus Cannon, I believe. Believe it or not, they were very bad that season. Maybe not the very worst but close to it.

                  And Cannon allowed 2 sacks and Remmers only allowed 5. There were plenty of tackles that allowed more

                    Cannon only started 8 games and was the backup before coming in due to injury. They were some of the worst RT in the league, like I said...believe it or not. doesn't matter to me.

                      Now qualify the rest of Von’s career

                          The bottom line on Shaq Barrett, as it pertains to Bradley Chubb, is that it’s fair to speculate how he might be helping the Broncos right now if he hadn’t been let go.

                          He’s having a great season in Tampa.

                          Maybe, in Vic Fangio’s defense, he could be having a great season for the Broncos.

                          Like I’ve said twice before already, if Chubb comes back healthy and gets back on track, we won’t have to play this what if game.

                            he was not gonna come back at the end of last year. he wanted a chance to start and there where teams that was willing to give him that chance. with Chubb and Miller here he was not gonna start. no one forsee Chubbs injury at the beginning of the year nor in free agency when contracts where signed. to think he would have stayed here at the same contract as he would have gone to place he could have started is crazy. i just don't see what this what if we kept shaq barrett thing started. if we did that then we might as well have drafted Nelson over Chubb, among alot of different things. i just don't see how after drafting Chubb we would keep Barrett is wishful thinking.

                              That's what I said before we drafted Chubb. Everyone ripped on me for suggesting that Barrett could be a solid starter for us and taking Chubb was an unnecessary pick. We could have had Barrett AND Nelson. Now we just have Chubb.

                                i just don't like these what ifs, or we could have had. we don't so we need to address how to fix build our team now any way. and Chubb should be an important part to that
