I'm pulling for him cause I like the guy and I hope he excels this season. Am I really in the minority?

We might be pleasantly surprised by WS at linebacker. Most of us thought Gallette would not be a factor and now it looks like he may be our starter-regardless of injuries. Besides, WS may actually have good coverage skills......he did intercept a pass from Kurt Warner-cant say the same for half our secondary

I don't know who you are referring to as not thinking Gallette would be a factor. Not this guy. His success with very limited reps, the writing was on the wall.

IMO WS will be terrible in coverage, he is very slow, he has a lot of miles on him and he is nearing the end of his career. Doesn't sound like a recipe for success to me.

The minority thought he wouldn't be a factor, certainly not the majority of us.

I'd like to see Smith have one last good year. He's been nothing but a pro since he's been here.

He'll be alright. There are situations where I could see him doing extremely well like around the goal line and special teams. Even in coverage he could probably hold his own against a TE used mainly for blocking.

I think people are getting wrapped around him trying to cover a Gonzalez or Vernon D which let's face it, hardly anybody can do effectively so he won't be called upon for that service.

I wouldn't want anybody on my team that was ready to say goodbye. You need guys that are fighters and that will do what it takes to get a roster spot and play on sundays.

What I meant by that was that a lot of what I read about our defense seemed to be revolved around Butler and Wilson.....with very little reguards to Gallette. I wasn't sure myself if he would be able to perform at lb since he was mainly used as a pass rusher in a 4-3.
