Literally never understand why Robertson is listed as 2nd string when he's our most complete and consistent player at LB.

I'm just glad the days of Stephone Anthony & James Laurinitus (he was really bad) are behind us at MLB.

Nolan has a really good group to work with.

I'd like to have a candid, off-the-record conversation with Nolan about Stephone Anthony and find out what went wrong without Payton's historical revisionism...

Should Anzalone miss extended time, decide to apply either the Lewis/Breaux standard of availabilty or the Armstead/Ellerbe standard of availability...
The thing is both Armstead and Ellerbe were animals on the field. When they played they made an immediate impact.

I like Robertson but towards the end of last season he looked like he was running on stilts.

Seems like injuries always put a dent in us here.

How do you feel about our depth?
