Any possibility it is the scheme? At some point do we have to think this? How can guys, like AF, be successful elsewhere, but come here and not be? It just doesn't add up. Something is a miss, and I have a hard time believing it is constantly the personnel.

LB does seem to be an issue. I hope that JV's injury is his issue, and I am sure it is, but I don't get it.

I agree with Diz88 I think Vilma is carrying a more serious injury than they are disclosing. Normally Vilma carries the D and usually 1st or 2nd on almost every play.

Well except that little bitty problem that we don't yet have anyone any better than he is to play OLB.

We have drafted well on offense, however, the picks on defense?
2011 too early for conclusion
Cam Jordan, Martez Wilson, Johnny Patrick, Greg Romeus, Nate Bussey.
2010 Patrick Robinson, Al Woods
2009 Malcolm Jenkins, Chip Vaughn, Stanley Arnoux.
2008 Sedrick Ellis, Tracy Porter, DeMario Pressley.
2007 Usama Young, David Jones, Marvin Mitchell.
2006 Roman Harper, Rob Ninkovich, Josh Lay
2005 Josh Bullocks, Alfred Fincher, Jason Jefferson, Jimmy Verdon.

How many have made a major impact for our team?

I still say move Vilma to the outside and Wilson to the middle, less ground for Vilma to cover,Wilson is heavier and faster and played the middle in college. Take your pick on the other side.
