If Blackburn is out Klein will start per Rivera.

We're in nickel more than base and Klein/Blackburn will be on the sideline anyway. In this game I might even expect us to go 5-2 as base because SF often uses 6 linemen as part of their running game.

klein is kuechly-lite.

 

i don't have a problem with him getting some more play time. it's not like blackburn sees the field a whole lot anyway. we run with 2 LBs most the time.

 

klein will be fine.

 

Klein is not Kuechly lite. Quit that crap!

Kuech 2.0

2.0 is nomenclature taken from computer software that signifies an update in software (assuming 1.0 was the first). This, you're saying Klein is an update/improved version of Kuechly. I'd definitely get rid of the 2.0 thing.

And Blackburn is just a stop gap kind of guy. You've been impressed enough by Klein on special teams and preseason to dub him DROY v.2.0? Righttttt, your foolish if you think there will not be a drop off. Blackburn is also more physically imposing and a veteran guy for an otherwise young defense.

 

I've never compared Klein to anyone, ever. Pay attention. We drafted him so it's his time to step up and play. Foolish is discrediting a player just because he was drafted in the 5th round. Foolish is saying he wasn't meant to ever be a starter.

I'm not saying he's not a starter. Several people have compared him to Kuechly. I have seen no indication they are comparable except that they are both white and of similar build.

Chase is listed as out. Try fua out at line backer? He should feel at home 7 yards off the line of scrimmage. Much more comfortable then being behind the line of scrimmage playing oline since he has no experience there.

He was a fifth round draft pick. He is no Kuchly 2.0. Sorry guys. Hopefully he's serviceable but he's not meant to be the answer.

 

Good God.... there are probably as many 5th round or lower picks in the HOF as there are 1st rounders.

 

And Blackburn was undrafted so I'm not sure what your point is.

 

I was thinking exactly the same thing.
