Our front line will help our production at OLB. They're going to have a lot of room to roam and make plays. Even if we didn't get a "name" linebacker, I'm very comfortable with what we currently have on the roster.

Yeah we look good at DT now. Wow just Wow. I wonder how Loomis is going to pull an OLB out of his hat now?

I agree. I just hope Jonathan Casillas is healthy......and we limit Shanle......

Have to admit I'm embarrassed, never really heard much about this guy, but the reactions from scouts seems to b overwhelmingly positive. I'll need to read more about him... but if he's that good, I wish we'd locked him up for more than one year.

Great signing. The talent level on the field will not drop off in the rotation as it has in years past. What about Kirk Morrison at LB? The guy hits.

He definitely helped occupying blockers and such... but let's not solely give him all the credit. Patrick Willis is a superstar.

Does he take as much space as the "Big Wiggle"? Hopefully he won't eat as many chicken wings!

Lets put it this way, I know we all love Sedrick Ellis, but big Sed is now our 3rd best DT.
