Our linebackers

33 posts in this topic

If you honestly think Connor was the best thing about our linebackers last season, then either you're a fool or you didn't watch our games. Hell, even if you only pulled up the stat sheet you'd be better informed than that nonsense. There's a reason we didn't try to hold onto Connor. He's slow, nonathletic, completely worthless in our system, and can barely keep up with a four year old. Way to snub James Anderson btw. The guy worked his ass off trying to fill Beason's shoes and he did a remarkable job. Too bad there were two huge holes on either side of him and our linebacker corps still ended up looking like ass. Anderson played so well, that if Beason doesn't come back to full form next season, we already have a backup plan. LOL Connor was the only highlight. That's a good one. You sure you didn't come here after jumping off the Saints bandwagon?

I am not sure why we even drafted the Conner in the first place? Hurney majic I guess

Because he was one of the best LB's in College football and was sitting there at the top of the 3rd round, when he was supposed to be a first round selection. Hurney Magic.

I agree we need linebackers and not just depth but guys who can contribute in the rotation and start if necessary given the uncertainty with davis and Beason. I would love Kuechly at 9 but can also see taking a corner or D linemen as well. I am high on Kuechly because I think he is special and there isn't anyone close to his talent or production in the draft. But you could make the same case for Claibourne or Blackmon, or even Coples (if he is the next Julius Peppers).

In any event we need linebackers and we really can't count on both daviss and Beason returning to their pre-injury form. I would love if we could but when have we gotten that lucky before????

Kirkpatrick as well in the CB department. I like Kuechly but starting LBs are easy to draft and while this is a thin year most years are not. Cant say the same for CB or DT.

You and the two people that pied you didn't read my post...I said Connor was the best of our depth meaning rotation fill in guys, not anderson.

Thomas Williams, Omar Gaither, and Jason Williams are just as good as the other backups we lost.

There seems to be a lot of people that don't understand how poor our LB situation is at the moment. Thomas Williams and Omar Gaither are free agents. Our LBs under contract consist of two guys coming off major injury, then a bunch of borderline NFL players. See post below.

We seriously need LB's added to the roster, and quite frankly, we need 2 players capable of starting. After James Anderson, Jon Beason, and Thomas Davis (both of them coming off of injury), we have Kion Wilson, Jason Williams, Jason Phillips, Phillip Dillard.

Really underwhleming, and a HUGE POSITION of NEED.
