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.

 

I think i like you.

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.

Im not trying to negate what you said. I hope we do go on and have a good front 7, but as of right now we haven't shown anything. We just look pretty darn good on paper.

And are you being serious about Lee not being even as good as our worst starting LB (Davis)?Lee is a damn helluva MLB. He's a top 5 MLB if he can stay healthy.

Lee is good. Dunno if I'd say top 5 MLB, but I don't wanna put the brain power into thinking of 5 others. Luke and the two from SF both off the top of my head are three. And yes, I'd take TD over Lee at their prospective positions ANY day of the week, all homerism aside.

Yea everyone has their own opinion, but try watching some cowboys games this upcomin season. Sean Lee is as good as it come. I still love Luke though lol.

In response the part in bold.

 

Not only do we get two leaders at LB. Our entire starting LB Corps will be leaders: Beason has been captain, Davis was Captain, and Keek would be on any other team. I cannot wait to see this defense shine with all of their leaders on the field. We got the Kraken who can inspire, CJ and Star who will lead by example, the ENTIRE LB CORPS, and Godfrey isn't a too bad of a leader himself.

 

I cannot wait for this season to get underway!

Beason is the only one coming off of an injury, and neither one is over 30. Davis just turned 30 but he missed a few years so his body actually has less wear and tear than others who played the same position (absent the knee of course). TD is still explosive instinctive and looking to make impact on every play. Keek is on another level already. Beason will have to figure out his spot but you cant say if healthy he would be worse at run support than JA.

Davis' ACL has been shredded 3 times. He came back string last year, but you can't discount or forget that.

Your right and I tried to make that clear. He is healthy right now and is performing at a high level. 16 games last season was a miracle by any standards. We are damn lucky to have him too.
