You could feasibly take any linebacker off the field in nickel situations. Usually your Mike and Will are better against the pass than your SAM is, so he ends up coming off. This year that happened not to be true for the Bears. Would you take Anderson off and leave Bostic and Greene on the field? Would that be an ideal situation for you? I never said he was an elite run defender...another example of what I talked about with there being only 1 extreme or the other. I can't really judge him on this year against the run because the whole damn team was awful against the run.
