    Football Outsiders game charting project, which defines every play in every game, has Chris Long with the most QB hurries in the NFL after 14 Weeks. Long has 34 which comes out to 2.8 hurries per game.

    It's worth a mention that up until week 10 he had 10 more than any other player in the NFL! imagine how dominant he can be if he gets 25 percent of these potential sacks!

    Nice to see Long come into his own in the NFL.

    (he was also real high in hurries in 2009, when he started to play up to his potential)

    as a side note, as far as QB hits there's 4 white players in top 5, Allen, Babin, Vanden Bosch and Kampman.

    Long is truly a rarity in the NFL. He has to be the highest drafted white DE in years. He's more than doubled his sack total this year from his rookie season when he had 4. Also he had three forced fumbles this year but amazingly his tackle total went down from 43 last year to only 29 this season.

    well, considering the time he spends behind the line of scrimmage pressuring QBs, i am not all that surprised. 2011 could be a breakout year for him, with 15+ sacks!
