Why? I think a safety is all we need.


the best way to stop the pistol, or any option offense is to always hit the quarterback. More effectively it would be with an athletic OLB. Instead of taking a much needed safety out of potential coverage

I disagree. The front four can get enough pressure. You just have to have fast guys that can stop the run and pass. Quintin Mikell can stay in the box and technically be that 3rd OLB (assuming nickel is the base package). Just need a FS that can cover a ton of ground.


A simple game plan can stop the pistol offense. We've already proved that I think.

But Chris is right about the front four being responsible in the end.


unfortunately it is not that easy, especially since we are dealing with athletic quarterbacks like KC, and wilson. Our aggressive gameplan may have worked on them the first time around because when we played them they were fresh in the game. It will not be as easy next time around. Trust me the OLB is critical in stopping the pistol.Someone must ALWAYS account for the QB (go look at how the ravens stopped the pistol), our current linebackers cannot keep up with the likes of kc and wilson, and we cannot always afford to sacrifice a db needed in coverage especially when our division opponents flexing multiple receiver threats including the tight ends. Mark my words we will draft an OLB in the first three rounds this year, and or supplement in free agency.


You know we played them both twice right? And we were effective at limiting their influence both times.

You're probably right that we will add a LB this year, but reaching for one in the early rounds of the draft would be a mistake. In all likelihood, SEA/SF/WASH will rely less on the pistol this year than they did last year. Leaning that heavily on the pistol was a necessity for them, not a luxury move. Their QBs were incapable of running an NFL offense effectively.


We beat russell wilson early in the year when he hadn't come into his own yet. We tied CK in his debut, and beat him only 2 weeks later(still was in his growing period, and yet still had 150 total yards rushing combined). and we didnt exactly beat seatle in week 17 either. Your not accounting for the fact that these guys are going to get better, its not like their their talents aren't dynamic. You are severely underrating their ability to pass as well, but i digress.

Jeff fisher and Les Snead knows their number 1 priority is to compete in the division before anything else. That means they will do what ever they feel is necessary to stop these athletic quarterbacks. Whether they will run the pistol or not, these guys will be capable of beating you with their feet at any time and we must account for that.

I'm not sure an athletic linebacker is the way to address quarterbacks with speed. As a matter of fact, I'm pretty sure that is what teams have been trying for years and failing. Using a LB as a QB spy just takes an extra guy out of the play. The key is discipline, especially amongst the front four.

And actually, I don't think Russell Wilson is going to get any better. Flash in the pan in my book. Kaepernick may be a different story, but Russell Wilson will fizzle out a few years from now.
