I still say the Erin will play the Mike. Again, Bishops experience in the inside has been in the 3-4. I think the last time he played the Mike in a 4-3 scheme was back in pop-warner.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

He has more experience at MLB than Erin, but they are similar players and I could see either winning that spot. Bishop if healthy is the better linebacker.

The first statement the article makes is false. Erin has been playing the MLB spot in the nickel off and on for 2 years...he's called plays before, so he has some experience there, and in our system. But, the bigger question may be, How much do we give up vs. the run game between missing our 'thumper' and our Winny!??Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

Also, I wouldn't be surprised to see Erin continue in his nickel duties, especially if Bishop hasn't fully recovered.
The extremely low guaranteed money ($50K) on Bishop makes it pretty easy to cut him if he doesn't show that he is up to speed throughout the pre-season.
