Prime example of why you cant dump a guy too early. I was fed up with his lack of production last year and was willing to see him cut to free up a roster space for someone who can help the team compete. Then again, I am not the one paying his checks so....

Anyway, I am really glad for him this year. It really seems that Quinn has been the best player (in the first half) for us every game

Take your pick from anyone above him on this chart. The reality is while Quinn's stats have sucked, he is still a better pure pass rusher than Floyd. He gets double teamed more than Floyd and he wins his matchups at a higher rate than Floyd. He just hasn't been able to close this year but that is how it goes with pass rushers sometimes. I would put money on Quinn having more sacks than Floyd next year especially given the likely odds and if Pagano is replaced.

I am still surprised that people don't understand how good Aaron Donald is.









Floyd is not a good pass rusher. He simply plays for a team that has the greatest inside pass rusher in NFL history. Floyd's individual pass rush win rate is below average despite double teams. He gets most of his sacks due to Donald and Ramsey.



As for Quinn, it is likely he had an unusually unlucky year when it comes to converting pressures into sacks. The other issue is Pagano's defense gives up easy completions so even though he and Mack beat their guy in under 2.5 seconds at a higher right than Floyd, the ball is usually gone by then.



Quin's pass rush win rate and double team rate was higher than Floyd's last year. Sometimes guys just get unlucky. It also didn't help that Pagano played his CBs off and so a lot of times despite winning in under 2.5 seconds, the ball was already gone. If Quinn is healthy I think he will have a rebound year. Sacks come in bunches for DEs. So I expect Quinn to still get the bulk of the reps at OLB over JA and Gipson.



Made this point before. Quinn had better underlying metrics than Floyd. Pagano having the CBs playing soft didnt help Mack or Quinn. That and Quinn was just unusually unlucky last year in not finishing.



I may be in the minority but I think Quinn will be fine this year. His PRWR and double team % was higher than Floyd's. It is just one of those things where he was pretty unlucky in terms of finishing and again Pagano did not help him.

I thought Quinn played hurt most of last year. Shame on the team for not being able to spell him more.

I thought it was a terrible signing last year - it looked like Bears paid big money for a pre-injured guy who was too old to return to form. But he has returned to form, in hindsight it was a gamble from Pace but it paid off.
