Our LBs

Well I have to say, after watching La Renarde on the NFL top 100 I've gotten pretty excited about our LB group. We obviously have question marks about Beason, his injuries and his contract. But if all goes right we have a formidable, dangerous group of linebackers in Keek, TD, and Beason to go alone with our front four. What are your hopes and expectations for this group, as well as our back ups Klein and Blackburn?  Do you think Beason moving to the outside will be benefial to him as well as the team.

 

I know there are question marks about this group but things seem to be taking shape for us to have one dominant front seven.  Beason is two years removed from his achilles injury. Davis bounced back to be more than solid after his injuries. It's really a scary front seven to think about when all are healthy and productive. Thoughts?

If Beason and TD stay healthy and Star is even half of what he's supposed to be I'd put our front 7 up there with SF's as the best two in the league.

Alexander is poised to have a breakout year, Dwan is Dee-Wan, Star will stomp some ass, KK may be better than anybody in the middle that got drafted getting to the QB then you throw in Big Money and Kraken?

Hell, if Beason, TD and Keek stay healthy...Steven Hawking can play S or CB and we would make the damn playoffs.

so informative, i'm learning a whole lot from your posts. It's quite amazing. Why don't you tell me about how Beason moving to the outside will help this team win. Does it play to his strengths? How about having two leaders at the LB positions in Beason and Keek? How about the versatility of this front seven to run some 3-4 schemes?  How will TD be after a full offseason work out without having to do rehab workouts?

 

you are a funny guy though. very clever.

Don't forget Dallas (Ware, Carter, Lee) and Baltimore (Dumbervil OLB/DE, Arthur Brown, McClain, Upshaw, Suggs)

"IMO", I believe that it will only be a 'mental' issue for Beason moving to OLB. The man was an OLB at the U. He knows how to play OLB. I dont see why he wont have success there if he comes back fully healthy. If he can get over the fact that he loss his honorable "MLB" job to Luke and settle for a less prestigious position on the outside he will be fine (which i do believe). It's not a case of if he can/can't play OLB, but more him just taking and being happy at playing another position.

After watching the Luke segment of top-100 I don't think that'll be a problem for Beason.

I said front 7, not LB corps.  Dallas' move to a 4-3 could very well negate Ware's talent, but even considering Ware at his most effective their D-line sucks and as a front 7 don't even come close to ours.  Lee's a good LB, but he's not as good as our worst starting LB.  Same for Carter, though I don't know if he's even proven anything in the NFL yet.

 

Baltimore has a good front 7, but Suggs and Ngata are the two best there and Suggs is slowing down with injuries and age.  If Suggs were in top form I'd include them.  With Upshaw not having done anything in the NFL, Brown being a rookie and unproven, McClain a proven bust, Suggs slowing down I wouldn't put them in the same category.

hmmmm...you actually noticed him? he's one of the most  unsuccessful attention whore trolls I've seen in the huddle. kind of a weak version of brooklyn bully or whatever his name is.

yeah, with how good alexander has looked and the way our DTs are shaping up I'd put our front seven, rotation and all, up against any.
