    Linebackers... Who do you put where?

    Which of our linebackers do you think will start, and where?

    I'd like to see Henderson in the middle, with Leber on the outside, and if Harris can prove himself in camp, him on the otherside

    Thanks to PPE for the awesome Sig.

    Re: Linebackers... Who do you put where?

    Well it sounds to me like they are all learning every position. If I were in charge ( which thankfully I am not ) I would have Henderson strong side, Thomas in the Middle, and Leber on the weakside. Another combination I like is Leber on the strong side, Harris in the middle, and Thomas on the outside.

    I don't really think that Henderson has the speed to play MLB in the Tampa-2.

    Re: Linebackers... Who do you put where?

    ^Yeah, that's a good point you make about E.J Henderson.

    Since were going to be playing a Tampa 2 defense, were going to need a MLB with some speed. I'm suprised we haven't picked up a linebacker with some experience, since losing Sam Cowart. I'm really worried about our linebackers this season, we have so much youth, but no leadership.

    But I think the three starting linebackers will be Harris,Leber, and Thomas.

    Id really like to see us put harris in the middle. i think he will do better there than at outside. but the starters on the outside are up in the air imo.
    but have ej,Thomas,Leber in the mix, as well as atleast one rookie.

    Leber Thomas Henderson

    Napo needs to prove himself to make it, and at the end of last season EJ was playing the best of all the linebackers.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    The thing you have to remember about EJ is that he was a slow starter at Maryland before blossoming his last two seasons. I feel very strongly that the same thing is going to happen here. Two seasons down, he was getting big-time minutes at the end of last season and learning what he could from Cowart.

    That said - I'm still pissed they didn't draft Derrick Johnson last year. He would have been the answer for YEARS at one of the two outside backer spots. I don't want them to screw that up again - it still pains me that Vilma is such a stud for the Jets and we missed him by one friggin' pick.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Re: Linebackers... Who do you put where?

    if you look right now Leber and DT are set to start. the question marks are EH and napo. My understanding of DT is that he will be better set for the outside. He isnt so smart.. so we need a MLB. Hence my desire for D'qwell jackson. he is the anti-EH. he is smart, a natural vocal leader and great in coverage. Those 3 can start and than we have EH, napo and Rod as the backups

    It's not that I don't think Henderson can start, it's that I don't know if he can play MLB in this scheme. I think his ideal fit would be on the storng side.
