Maybe Coples isn't that bad?

While reading an article on the excellent site FootballOutsiders.com, I came upon this chart:

The article is all about how terrific JJ Watt is, and here is the link:

I was surprised to see Quinton Coples right in the middle considering how down we've been on his play. So at least, he is getting some hits in on the QB, which puts him right there with some impressive names despite his injury and missed games. So here's to a little love for Q!

Give him a full healthy season, and some improved play in the secondary and maybe we will have a pass rusher on our hands.
