Paul Posluszny landed himself a best performance of 2011 in Pro Football Focus’ rankings of inside linebackers. He tied for fifth with New England’s Brandon Spikes.
Posluszny got off to a strong start as a Jaguar with his week one performance:
Posluszny wasted no time in showing Jaguar fans why their team paid so much to land him. In Week 1, he picked up two pressures (one of them in rapid order against Michael Roos), broke up a Matt Hasselbeck pass, and finished off three tackles for no gain. That may have been a more complete display than what we saw from Spikes…
As we’ve looked at what the Jaguars have at linebacker more and more, it is nice to see that the talent Gene Smith is bringing in is making an impact.
