    This has a feel of Chris Williams an J Webb competing at RT, is the winner really a winner for the team?

    I can only hope Trestman is telling the truth that the team wants DJ back; b/c that at least solidifies the starter at ILB. It all but spells the doom fo Anderson coming back though; b/c one of the young guys is going to be the SAM this year.

    And it could be argued that Anderson was the best LB on the field (maily because Briggs was hurt), but Anderson was on the field the entire year and had some pretty big numbers for a SAM LBer.

    I'm torn on Anderson. He was indeed our best LB last season, but he's also the one responsible for srewing up that game against GB.

    We were so freaking close, dammit! I still can't believe how dumb an NFL player can be.

    We all know he's not a DE and the biggest word i took from this article is "compete"...hopefully that is the proper word and this regime doesn't just start handing out starting jobs for no reason...

    I cant even keep track of all the LB's we have. Its a lot to say the least.

    But those guys are doomed if we dont have a DL.

    Offenses are going to blow past a geeky DL into LB and put all the pressure on DB.

    And we are going to get our asses kicked like last year.

    Rodgers to Cobb in the final game should be reported as a crime against humanity.

    my problem is he and Bostic are right now competing for two positions, SAM/MIK so does the winner get MIK and the loser get SAM? What if they both suck at both positions?

    I agree with Jackie...if we don't get the d-line situation squared away it won't matter who we have at linebacker. I still think Bostic could play the Mike, but thats just me.
