    I'll be very surprised if he plays the Mike for us at all. Just because he played "ILB" in a 3-4 does not mean he can play the Mike in a 4-3.

    I'm going to be very surprised if our starting backers in our base isn't Chad/Bishop (OLB), Henderson (MLB) with both Erin and Bishop taking reps in the nickel to stay fresh.

    Assuming Bishop has fully recovered from his hamstring rupture, I can see him playing either the weak side or the middle. I don't think there is a great deal of separation between the two players strengths. I think Bishop is the better linebacker of the two no matter the position.

    I agree 100%. I'm giving the edge to Erin because of the familiarity with our coaching staff and the 4-3 scheme we run.

    I think that we will be able to flip flop them in and out will keep them both fresh for the entire season and will really mess with O-coord minds.
