Can I get some love for Robert Mathis?


Robert Mathis may be the most underrated pass rushing end in the game. In the last two prime time games, we've heard ample praise for Dwight Freeney's ability to get after the quarterback but why no love for Robert Mathis?

Mathis got a pro bowl nod last year and I was glad to see it, but he is all but forgotten by the guys on NBC and ESPN. In the last five years (Not counting 2009)  he's forced 27 fumbles and landed 50 sacks! Freeney on the other hand has forced 21 fumbles and  caught the QB 48 times. Now, Freeney has missed a few more games than Mathis so his per game averages are probably better but the point being, Mathis is definitely one of the elite pass rushers in the NFL and people forget that all the time. The defensive line needs to be one cohesive unit and with our bigger tackles now drawing more double teams, having Mathis coming off the left side is a big part of the reason why Freeney is getting some juicy one on one match ups on the right side. Give the man some appreciation, that's all I'm saying.
