Just a thought.
I have been pondering this in my head since he got here, add Stupar to the mix also. My question is what to do with Anthony? He got his wings clipped when JL came in as our new MLB, it wouldn't hurt my feelings at all to put Anthony back at MLB to go with Ellerbe and Robertson on passing downs and learn a little from JL to boot. We are fairly deep at lb. but adding another when all the teams make their cuts could go a long way.

Yes sir. From what I have gathered and read on Browns blogs, Craig played the MIKE spot up in Cleveland ... very well. Maybe Allen "tinkers" with that here. Payton also commented on this very topic but I can't seem to find the sound byte at the moment. At some point (maybe not this season) I do suspect Stephone will transition back to MIKE from Sam after he gains confidence & valuable teachings from JL.

I'll be just as curious as you are to see how this unfolds at TC.

I thought they moved Anthony to the starting SAM position. This shouldn't affect him.

I think DB is our strongest point on D assuming Lewis makes it back but to also have LBs that can cover is unheard of on the Saints. We still need pressure on the QB though.
