I think it will be Hawthorne-Lofton-Casillas/Herring if Shanle's injury was severe enough to warrant him not playing in the upcoming game.

Vilma isn't yet ready to play by all the accounts that I've heard - still rehabbing the knee from the surgery - and his suspension might be reinstated before he'll be healthy enough to take the field, so I wouldn't place much hope on him.

Yeah, most definitely, if Vilma's knee heals up he'll move into the starting line up. I think Lofton, Vilma and Hawthorne are the three best linebackers on the team. I'm not sure which guy would take the middle. I read somewhere that Lofton played outside linebacker a little in college. But who know's maybe it was only a little because he wasn't good at it. I can even imagine Vilma and Lofton swapping that middle position every once in a while just to confuse QBs.

I would think there would be a rotation and Herring, Shanle and Cassilias all rotate in and out at different times depending on game situations.

That's all contingent on Vilma's knee healing up though.

Re: Only one game

The sky is falling, LOL. They laid an egg, at home, against a team that no one gave a chance. It happens, glad it happened early in the season so we can get it over with really.

I hope you are right. This was a letdown of epic proportions to me. I really bought into everything that was being said. Wouldn't have thought in a million years with the off season we had, our guys would come out un inspired and un motivated looking. Dissapointment is the word that sums it up the best.

I really hope this was just an anomoly. I must say that the doubt has crept in though. I am not as confident as I was before this game. Maybe I had set my self up for disapointment. I really didn't believe that missing SP was going to be a big deal but after that showing of leadership, the inability to adjust on either side of the ball, makes me feel like this may be a long year.

Re: Only one game

When Vilma returns he'll probably play the middle on passing downs and across from Hawthorne the rest of the time. Lofton is a thumper and good against the run.

Not yesterday he wasn't... I hate to say it, but RGIII looks to be a special player.

RGIII has a better arm than Cam, especially on the run

That was 1 bad game by us but It was 1 game! not the end of the season I do believe we will get it together that doesn't excuse the fact we played terrible we need to step up offensively and defensively I know #TeamKromer wont disappoint #WhoDat!
