If that's washed up then I'm beggin for our entire lb group play that badly.

Armstead was a SOLDIER for us. lead in tackles if im not mistaken. not to mention in the locker room.

and Barrow..damn. i knew something was up. tried to tell you guys. this was a bad day for us. first we lose the best chance to shore up our iffy (no pun intended) pass rush with Douglas, and now we lose our best chance at run stopping since we're gonna be blitzing Washington and Arrington every down to compensate.

Wasn't T Holt being single covered sometimes by 3rd string cornerbacks? In an offense that wasn't holding any punches out? Of course he got yards going 1v1 with Walt Harris. We didn't jam them at the line, and we would had people all over T. Holt in a real game.

The reason Pierce and Campbell haven't earned a starting spot is the right person hasn't gotten hurt to allow them to step up and play. Barrow is a decent player, but won't be around long, we need to find a replacement for him.

Of course, Armstead was not a bust - pretty far out assessment.

The word on Mitchell's release was that Williams insists on speed in his LB's. That is certainly Mitchell's weak point, so he would not work out in his defensive schemes. But, I agree that being thin at MLB is a major concern.

Has anyone stopped to consider that this whole Barrow thing is a Gibb's "we aint saying nothing" thing here? Do you think Gibbs is playing this injury like a fiddle? I personally don't have a clue what to think, but they better find somebody better than Pierce to play the middle if we have any chance of stopping the run!!!

This is no Gibbs ploy. If Barrow wasn't hurt he'd have played by now. Although an MRI earlier should hve detected a serious problem. Tendonitis doesn't develope into a cart problem overnight.

Armstead was arguably the mvp of our defense last year and a leader on the field and in the locker room. He did lead the team in sacks. Tell me, what about Armstead makes you think he was a bust last year. And dont say anything about washington or anyone we have now. It doesnt matter that hes gone, im only commenting on the fact that you considered him a bust?
Bust maybe a bit strong, but Armstead was OK on a bad defense. So it is relative. Armstead is not quick and explosive enough to be a top weak side linebacker. He was a few years ago, but he is to old and it was time for the team to go in a new direction. Plus Lavar's talents were being waisted at SLB. Lavar should be a monster at WLB.

Regarding Barrow's injury and the MLB position:
I hope we do not end up having to move Lavar to middle LB until Barrow heals. Mitchell might have been cut too early. I do not like the idea of playing Antonio Pierce or Khary Campbell at MLB. Mitchell was the logical back up until Barrow comes back.

I'm sure Mitchell was cut with Barrow's situation in mind and the staff has a plan.

Williams seems to be really high on Pierce. Mitchell just didn't have the wheels to play effectively in this defense.

I sure hope somebody has a plan to stop every back in the league from running right up the gut on this defense.

Well, since Gregg Williams is considered one of the top Defensive Coordinators in the NFL, it may have crossed his mind that he should try to prevent that...
