I have never seen such a "consistent" game wrecker in 40yrs of watching the NFL football.
And to do that from the DT spot????........ is beyond incredible.

Remember the "pay the man" debates? When many people q uestioned the value of giving a DT a contract worth something in the low 20 M range (which during those debates was sometimes mistakenly called "qb money." )

I think it's both safe and fair to say that a lot of those people have changed their minds about all that.

The way I tend to put it, a good DT ties up blockers, because no offense can afford to let the defender who starts the play closest to the ball have an influence on plays. That's a good DT--he forces the offense to account for him. An elite DT does all that--ties up blockers--AND makes plays ANYWAY.

Another line someone had was that there are many defenders who can change your offensive game on Sunday. With Donald, he changes your offensive game starting on Monday.
