He's seeing a neurologist, which is scary. I don't think he plays, which honestly makes me very sad. He deserves the streak.

On the bright side, our defense cant possibly be worse without him. Its not like we can fall to 33rd in pass defense.

Run defense will suffer.

That's just too weird on the balance concerns. Geez, hope it's something totally innocuous like a weird flu or sometimes pain can throw your balance off.

I hope it's not concussion related.

I agree with Goat, run defense will suffer. I just don't expect 'Zo to be able to fill in for Fletch. As far as his streak goes, I remember thinking Favre's streak would never end until he retired. But I think at this point in his career, it's not about keeping streaks alive. If he needs a week off to be ready to go for the second half of the season, I'm fine with that. His streak is an amazing accomplishment in and of itself.

Agreed. I know this is early, but do you think His jersey is unofficial retire-worthy?

Maybe we will see more Robinson too since Zo is big on ST. I would like to see him develop and eventually take Rileys spot, then Riley taking over Fletcher. He actually looks like our most athletic ILB atm.

Well hopefully Fletcher will be able to play. Shanahan hasn't ruled Fletcher out. If he does it will be a game time decision. If it's a game time choice then I can see Fletcher playing. Maybe he starts but alternates off and on with Robinson or Alexander.

He still plays at a higher level than most LBs. He was elite before, he's still well above-average. You can't expect him to cover Jimmy Graham every time if that's what you're going by. Not many LBs can cover him.

We also have his replacement already on the roster possibly. That's exactly why we drafted Keenan Robinson. Perry Riley could be playing himself into that role too, heir to Fletcher's spot.

None of our LBs are really good cover guys, but Fletcher is awful. He is slow, and it's not just Graham.


Here is a useful stat.

Fletcher vs Giants was targeted 6 times giving up 6 completions for 48 yards.

No one is picking the skins in this one, that's OK I like the underdog role.

Amazing how many "ehhh" comments i have seen about Fletch since his injury. Lol. Not just your comment NC but many others. I mean it isnt exactly ancient history that Fletch was making plays - even in the passing game. I guess it truely is a what have you done for me lately game?

it is, i took some flak when i suggested that losing orakpo was not an end of the world type situation. i pointed out that he's not demarcus ware and i think that rubbed some people the wrong way. orakpo is a very good player, but i don't see him as a game-changer (yes, even before his injury).
