Barry Cofield Ranks As Top NT

Barry Cofield Ranks As Top NT In Business

Redskins.com intern Chris DeLisi shares an interesting tidbit about Redskins NT Barry Cofield.

Over the course of the last two seasons, the Washington Redskins have seen three quarterbacks take the field, five different running backs record a carry, and multiple safeties cracking the starting lineup.
Despite the multitude of changes on a team in transition, one thing has remained the same: nose tackle Barry Cofield anchoring the center of Jim Haslett’s 3-4 defense.
While Cofield didn’t have the opportunity to dig his toes (or should I say hands) in the sands of Hawaii at this year’s Pro Bowl, he can claim what no other defense lineman can–being the best nose tackle in the business.
In a recent ranking made by CBSSports.com’s Pat Kirwan, Cofield rates as the NFL’s No. 1 DT playing in a 3-4 scheme.

When analyzing sacks, hurries and knockdowns, Cofield blew away the competition–he led all 3-4 DTs with a 21.5, while the next player on the leaderboard only had 4.5.

...and I believe he would be a great DE in the 3-4 if we had a huge powerful NT who took on 2 guys.

He is a solid, not flashy, guy. A typical Shanahan guy.

WHAT they dont tell you is how many hurries per Qb drop back which is a more accurate assessment since as a D we stayed on the field for more snaps probably more than any 3-4 defense.

Furthermore since our NT and d is a run stop first type of philosophy,I think he fares better in run stopping stats per game.

Still, a 5-1 ratio over the next closest player? That's not just scheme.

Cobra Kai Forbath, I agree.
I know he got a pretty good zip on the ball. He has a quick release. . . once I seen a coupla' throws, I was just like 'Yeah, he's that dude.'"

The former cowboy has ironically been one of my favorite Shanny signings... Guy has pure heart, and gives his all every play. Compared to the bum we paid to lay on his face all game its a full turn around!
Besides he's onfield greatness he matches or even shadows it at time with his offfield character...



Anyway, you think those stats are impressive?!
You should see my madden stats! Him and JJ are my go to players unless I'm rushing w rak or kerrigan... And his numbers are BEAST! :twisted:

Failed to include this at end of last post

I don't actually think Kai is the 2nd most important redskin.
