Are these reliable predictors for projecting how prone a linebacker is to getting concussions?

considering the way butkus played, yes

Did you really think that was a good point to make even though there are countless Butkus award winners that have never had more than maybe one or two concussions during their pro careers?

No, it's really not a good or accurate point.

Please bring back neg rep!

How can you even call yourself a fan? Why would you even think to be so negative? And most importantly... Even when you thought it, why would you actually type it???

Yes bring back neg rep so you can take posts out of context and thumb down posts, accomplishing, well, nothing really.

Or instead you can learn how to comprehend what someone is saying, debate like an adult, and not post like a 16 year old commenting on YouTube videos.

Since Kuechly is so good in coverage, shouldn't that mean we should stick him at SLB over the TE?

He has been playing SLB and MLB. I suspect he will stay in for nickel packages also.

I was cracking a joke about the era of football that Butkus came from but I see that was not followed.

i saw someone in here say they expected keuchly to be second in in sacks this year, but i'm not sure why you'd want to take him out of coverage. i'm sure he'll be a part of more blitzing and rushing the passer than he was in college, but i think they'll probably tend to keep him in midfield to deal with what goes on there and free up other guys to cause mayhem in the backfield. he's pretty much the ultimate security valve. he makes it safe for the others to take part in stunts.

I think you are right especially if he plays the Will, in a McDermott 4-3, the Will blitzes the least of all linebackers, perhaps 10%.

Thank you Zod! SLB is where I said he should be ever since we drafted him.

Yeah that's nice and all but several of those guys will end up injured. The only one that truly strikes fear in my heart is Graham.
