I don't really like that, arrington free lances a bit too much as it is, last thing he needs is to be responsible for positioning 10 other guys as well as playing his own assignment. He's a freak athlete, but not the top choice for QB'ing the D, since he sometimes has trouble keeping himself in the right spot.

Playing inside affords him LESS space than playing outside. You've provided the main reason why NOT to move him inside.

Re: Pierce offically gone

MLB doesn't HAVE to QB the D. It can be anyone. Safeties do it a lot, unfortunately I'm not sure we have anyone at safety capable of doing that. Maybe Taylor, I don't know.

Definitely don't move Arrington inside. Let him be a threat to rush the passer from the outside and use his ability. If we HAD to move one of them in I think Washington would be a better fit. I really want to keep those guys on the outside.

We need to keep Clemons for 3rd downs to take LaVars spot at LB when he goes to DE. We should look at playing Marshall in the middle.

Re: Pierce offically gone

I'm very dissapointed by this. I think we will be able to surive fairly well without him, but man I really liked Perice. Rumor has it that he gave us the chance to match the offer, so that was very stand-up in my opinion, keeping his world. I'll deifintley be cheering for this guy in the future; and I'll miss him here.

Re: Pierce offically gone

Well, as much as I hoped Pierce would have stayed and although there is a SLIM chance of him staying, I don't think we're in trouble over that one. I am wondering about Fred Smoot...anything official yet?

I think we need to center our concentration toward Wide Receiver.

Re: Pierce offically gone

Well the only real concentration it seems we can have NOW is getting one from the draft.

Re: Pierce offically gone

I didn't read the entire thread so forgive me if someone else already stated this. Yes it sucks that Pierce is gone, but let's not act like we just lost Mike Singletary.

He was very good last year.. for the first time in his short career.. on a 6-10 team.. that caused very few turnovers.. that had a great defense statistically but didn't turn games around like elite defenses do..

All the gloom and doom is a bit much on the board as well as the local media.. Pierce had a great year, but as Ryan Clark, Garnell Wilds, Lemar Marshall, Chris Clemmons, Joe Saleva'a, ANTONIO PIERCE all showed, the defense we run is predicated on the scheme and players being where they were supposed to be.. Pierce made a ton of tackles, but he wasn't a game changer.. It would be nice to have him back for continuity sake, but it's not the end of the world he left..

You never know with Clemon's? he's 6'3" compared to Pierce's 6'1" he is a little light at 234lbs compared to Pierce at 240, but Clemon's has much more speed than Pierce and should be a little bigger this year as well, he came out as a junior so he 's still young, remember we got rid of Trotter because he couldn't cover, speed is more essential at MLB in William's defense than power, case and point Pierce wasen't considered a MLB before the start of the season last year but it was made to work, I think the biggest question about Clemon's is does he have the smart's to play inside I would say right now no, but that can change if William's work's with him at MLB. The other player I hear William's likes is Barnes, at 6'2" and 247 he is very fast he was a WR his sophmore year at missouri, he didn't move to LB until his junior year, [I read somewhere but can't find it] that William's really likes this kid. If none of these guy's pan out I am sure we will have no prob. finding a MLB as good or better than Pierce in the draft, plus we do still have Barrow who I believe will be ready to go this season to hold down the fort until 1 of the youngster's are ready to step up. I would not be panicking right now about the MLB position WE WILL BE FINE!

Re: Pierce offically gone

Daseal I also like your idea of putting Lavar at D-end and then putting Clemon's outside of Lavar on Passing down's that's a big time pass alignment it's exactly how they should be used I don't think that combo can be stopped.
