So, word is we're looking to move Lee to WLB and Carter to the SAM. If so, then we have an opening at MLB.


That's...interesting. I guess they figure by moving to the Will spot Lee will take less of a beating in hopes of staying on the field for a full season?

If we do go this route...I wonder if they'll give Holloman a shot at the Mike? Broaddus did mention the staff feels he's a better fit at either SLB or MLB...


At this point, this all seems to just be fan speculation. But, Lee would have more opportunities to make plays at the WLB spot, like Derrick Brooks used to do in Tampa. I have my doubts about Carter at the SLB spot. Holloman at MLB is interesting, but we'd still need to draft a MLB with good cover skills to compete with him.


Lee has a better inside tackling ability and a nose for the ball. Brooks did not. Brooks was a good rusher, decent in zone, with a great burst but not very good all around speed. Lee is the opposite. You don't move that to the will spot in this system, you leave that in the middle where he can do it all for you.

This move would be a huge mistake and take Lee away from what he does best.


So let me get this right...you are saying Lee has better speed, is a better tackler and has a better nose for the ball than Hall of Famer Derrick Brooks.


Yes.

Brooks was a rusher who was good in coverage. Blitz and cover, cover and blitz. A true Will 'backer. Great player, HoF worthy without a doubt.

Saying he was not as fast as, not as good of a tackler as, or not as ball hawking as someone else isn't at all a knock. Players do different things differently, even when they play the same position.

Which they don't. Linebacker is like saying 'west coast offense' - a vague term. The differences between a Will and a Mike are pretty big, especially from system to system.


SMFH. Shocked

Wow. I have officially seen it all. Stephen Hawking could put on a cowboys uniform and some people would say that better than another team's HOFer. He's better at reading defenses than Peyton Manning. Or, he's a better decision maker than Brett Favre.


Well, I'm pretty sure Hawking never texted pics of his junk to an overrated plastic looking intern. So, yeah, he is a better decision maker than Brett Favre. As for being better at reading defenses than Peyton, did you watch the Superbowl?


To be fair, Hawking would need someone to help him with that. Favre's personal IQ may be in the "highly functional" realm of mental retardation, but he's still capable of ordinary motor skills. Not much more than that, but still capable of ordinary motor skills.


Who wins the 40 yard dash race, Hawking in his motorized wheel chair or Peyton Manning? My money is on Hawking, or as Sheldon Cooper called him, Rolling Thunder.

I think that's where my money would be as well.

HT, just stop. We stopped reading after the overrated plastic intern comment. Every self respecting football fan knows that Jenn Starger had her "talent" removed.
