Linebackers
 
So we signed three new backers. That puts us up to four quality name brand backers including vilma. Not to mention Casillas getting signed. We're REAL DEEP all of a sudden. I have two questions:
1) Even though Spags is a 4-3 guy, any chance hell use Bunkley in a 3-4?
2) Vitt named SHANLE as a STARTER today? Why haven't we tied him to a tree and grabbed a shovel on him yet??? I bet he's got the next dirt to sling and we're afraid to let him go.

Hell, SHANLE is probably the mastermind behind all this!!!

I believe naming him the starter right now is more of a show of respect than anything. I would be shocked if he's actually the starter when it counts.

Vitt said that was right now, he wants the linebackers to be able to play all 3 positions and that changing would be made .... lets see how this goes but I'd still put money down that Shanle isn't on the team come the Redskins game

Bunkley is a very good 4-3 run stuffing DT, that's what he was brought here to do.

Rogers and Franklin were brought in last year to do the same thing, but failed most of the time.

Spags uses a lot of cover 2 4-3, relying on pressure from the 4 down lineman. I doubt we see much 3-4 if any this year...

Merely asking because of our depth currently.

We do seem deep with decent to good LB's now. Thats kinda new and most of us don't know how to deal with that yet. We're still numb.

I'm hoping Shanle is there simply because he's a team leader and a smart versatile LB. I take comfort in that he's currently listed at SLB. He's probably adequate there.

I'm guessing when the season starts he'll be a back-up.

I can't wait until season starts, looking forward to see Shanle and Co. take the field under Spags.

Shanle won't be taking the field much I imagine.

As hard a time as Shanle gets, I hope he fits really well into Spags' scheme and kicks the crap out of people next year...

Probably not likely, but I'd love to see it...

He is highly underrated, might surprise a lot of people under Spags.
