Now I dunno, but I reckon the gameday captain was probably Will Smith or Shanle.

As you say, Dunbar is what he is. He ain't no Vilma, but heck that is true of many a player.

Yep..and Dunbar caused that 4th down.

What if...

It's really Shanle who is the genius, but because of Vilma's dominance he's been overlooked and will now get his day in the sun. He will captain the defense and lead us to another Superbowl Championship!!!

You could be onto something, strato!

But, picturing the meeting in G.W.'s office:

"Scott. Your number is up, son. We need you to lead the defense now that Jonathan is out..."
The handsome, bald, Scott stands motionless, staring out the window at the drizzling rain, intently rolling around the carefully-plucked booger between his index finger and thumb...
"AAAhhhh... What was that, coach?"

LOL

HERE WE COME, TA GE' CHU!!!!

Dunbar has got (don't know for sure) to be physically faster than Shanle, so why not move Shanle to the middle and Dunbar to the outside?

Maybe...? I don't know...

But one thing's for sure: I coach one hell of a team from my laptop here on my couch in front of a fire in Anchorage, Alaska!!!!!!! LOL

Its tough to call audibles when he hasn't been the starter, he needs a bit of time before he gets up to speed with what audibles to call in certain situations.

Lets not forget that Vilma is probably one of the smartest LB's out there and can even outsmart Drew in Training Camp drills.

Dunbar will get there, he is going to get a lot more time to develop now that Vilma isn't healthy. He will get better, but i think he played pretty well to be fair.

I will say this: Shanle, Dunbar, and Harper will at least tackle, consistently. Thats more than I can say for the rest of them. And Shanle does know our D better than anyone else. Dunbar is starting to play good. I think he's hungry,fast, and mean. I would like him to stay there for a while.
