You call it "spectacular". I call it disrupting, penetrating from the interior, which is why they switched him to NT.
In fact, this from Bob McGinn rating the Packers vs the Redskins. This is what I was talking about, from yes a 3-4 NT drafted #9 overall. Maybe you don't expect your NT to be able to do this, but I did. I believed he was good enough to be a difference-maker, and he showed it on Sunday.
DEFENSIVE LINE (4˝)
If Cullen Jenkins wasn't playing with a club on his broken left hand he would have had two or three sacks. He just couldn't grab Donovan McNabb. As it was, Jenkins (55 snaps) led the defense with 4˝ pressures in what was his finest pass-rushing game of the season. B.J. Raji (70) played his best overall game as a Packer with two tackles for loss and 1˝ pressures.
Player of the week: NT B.J. Raji
Raji was a dominating force against Casey Rabach, a veteran center trying to get by mostly with finesse. He played a career-high 70 snaps and didn’t appear to tire despite unseasonably warm weather. This was his finest game in Green Bay.
