Re: Fujita vs. Joe Schmoe at OLB

LBs production is greatly reliant on the defensive tackles playing in front of him

without a tackle to eat blockers we dont have production that we'd like from the LBs

fujita is a leader and no matter who we get to replace him, the leadership will be missed

oh and the old cliche, defense wins championships....still holds true

we won because we had a good pass defense......the colts didnt run the ball so our run defense didnt matter even tho it stunk throughout the year

defense still wins championships and our defense stepped up when we needed it the most

Do you keep forgetting that we drafted two LBs last year that were injured and that we picked up two undrafted free agents that made the team?

Rookies don't stay rookies. They practice. They learn. They play. They actually get better. They become veterans.

Are you absolutely positive that out of Arnoux, Casillas, Dunbar, and Vaughn that there isn't one starting caliber outside LB? The FO must think one of them is starting quality, since they pointedly did not draft a player for the position nor sign a free agent.

remember that vaughn is a safety

arnoux and cassillas are little for LBs and really dont fit the mold of a SLB

dunbar and evans might be the favorites to win the position

If Evans is the answer, we are in trouble. Yes, he is good on ST, but I was at the ATL game, and guys were running by him like he was an orange cone

Re: Fujita vs. Joe Schmoe at OLB

Did I miss something? Did training camp start yet? The staff may have something in the works. How would it be to trade J Brown for a starting LB? If we were working on that and it were close, why would you want to draft someone?

Not to change the subject, but you're so right. An All Pro LT for a OLB? He better be a game changer.
