Here's what happening, and you'll have to pardon the use of the basketball analogy to football linebackers; the answer you seek, in a word - matchups...

From week to week, the linebacker roles will change based on the opponent...

Plus, have it on good authority, that (knock on wood) should Anzalone and Davis stay healthy, they will see the most snaps of all the linebackers...

And the reason for that previous statement is that we will be running a lot of nickel, half CB-nickel (Robinson), half S(Heavy)-nickel (Bell)...

And that's why those linebackers will be the two in there the most...

Outside linebackers will have most of the responsibility for the flats, shifted from the cornerbacks...

League is a 60/40 passing league now and the nickel is essentially the base package now...

Because of Davis' and Anzalone's speed, they will cover running backs, even slot receivers coming their way in motion, out in those flats...

The CBs are basically staying back, knocking down the long throws...

Weather is great. Morstead drilling 50 yders with major hangtime like nothing. Taysom Hill is built like a brick house.
