No way, Vrabel was very versatile. Defensive line, LOLB, ROLB, better tackler, better at setting the edge, and he caught TDs. Ninkovich is a solid piece in the defense, but I'd give him time before comparing him to Vrabel. Besides, Vrabel was usually always productive, who knows if Ninko will have other seasons like this? (I mean, hopefully he will....)

Then again, I'm a huge Vrabel fan, got 4 of his jerseys :X

Well Nink can play OLB in 3-4 and 4-3. I dont remember Vrabel ever playing LB in a 4-3. But he could also play ILB in 3-4 and I dont think nink has.

I think Vrabel is better in every phase of the game except forcing fumbles. I might be overrating Vrabel/underrating Nink's passrushing skill.


The Pats ran a 4-3 for Vrabel's first 3 years with the team

Well I was 8, so I don't remember to much of that 4-3 and I honestly assumed he would've be a DE. SO that's my bad.

The only thing I can point out that Ninkovich do better is not jump offsides like Vrable.
