    Greenway 6'2" 240ish

    Didn't he prove you wrong just by being 6' 4" and 240ish?

    Another benifit to some improvement in the middle at DL will allow him and the other LB'rs to play a bit further off the line, thus shortening their drops into their zones, thus making it look like they are better in coverage.

    Another thing, when they were mugging, we were caught with our shorts down alot. Teams just threw at us into those zones that would be vacant without a LB in them. I think the D-coord started to figure that out a bit but was still limited by his DL play when it came to using his LBrs.
    You don't want to see what Cole can do at the Mike spot then?

    how do you know if he is the best option until you give him the opportunity to sjow what he can do. He was one of the best LBs in preseason last year.

    Whoopidy doo. Jackson was our best QB in preseason too.

    A good preseason against third strings in the fourth quarters of games does not make you a good player. There's a reason he's ridden the pine all season. If he's such a great hidden talent, you'd think he would have made some plays. SHown the coaches he deserves to be out there. Linebackers get rotated fairly regularly, Cole was only activated for 5 games, has no statistical impact in the NFL whatsoever.

    I'm all for giving him a chance, but we better have a backup plan.

    Honestly I meant to type slow instead of small but I will stick to what I said lol.

    In all honesty I really like him.

    Henderson unlikely to return

    We'll likely scrutinize Cole in the minicamps/OTA's. I really think there's an opportunity for him to force the HO to consider him as a legitimate contender for Erin's spot. He appears to have "playmaker" ability. I don't sweat his size at all.
    None

    That is why I want to see what he can do with the first team this preseason. What part of that offends you? Are you afraid to see if he has the talent to play in the league? I would rather see what he has with the first team and go from there. If he can't play why waste our time with him, cut him and draft someone who can play LB.
