Exactly, and guys like that are such important cogs to a great defense. When you can absolutely stuff the ground game with your base d linemen it allows the rest to feast on everything else. It's suffocating and demoralizing. It's the kind of guy I'd like to see Poona become, or what I hoped Snacks would be for us.Mebane was not a "pass rusher" he was a run stuffing DT that ate up double teams. That was his job and if teams didn't double team him he ate up RB for TFL. Good to great strength and allowed zero push up the middle and set an anchor. His presence did not allow teams to have room in the middle to step up or run there to often. The only reason the Hawks moved on from him was his slight decline and age. He was still doing "his job" and did so for many more years. HOF? No he wasn't that kind of player he was a lunch pail and hard hat guy. He didn't put up stats but he put in the work and was a "huge" ( lol ) cog of a good defense.
