    Hummmm, that's an interesting tidbit. I wonder what the coaches thinking is there. I'm betting he starts though before training camp ends.

    from what im understanding then, Leber is our strong side LB with D. Thomas backing him up, and EJ is our weak side LB with Greenway backing him up, concluding that Harris starts out as our Middle LB untill he proves himself useless and eveything is shifted once again.

    Yea, I was investing in NFL franchises when I was in college too (right between the beer bongs and panty raids). Life is good if you're a little Wilf.

    I feel real sorry for EJ and DT, for having been developed in a terrible defensive system (our buddy Teddy installed). I blame poor developement and coaching as the answer for the underachievment of both players.I think all of our LB's are full of potential, and with the right system and coaching EJ,DT and Nappo could revive thier sinking careers.IMO the first year is crucial in successfull development.

    I agree. These players seem very athletic and talented. But always seemed in the wrong place at the wrong time. That is a coaching issue.
