LB: Jackson (O), Fletcher*(M), Riley (O)
S: Draft, Draft
CB: Hall, Wilson


* - If Fletcher retires then it's a camp toss up

I like the look of that front 7.
You are. The 4-3 ship left the port in 2009 with Greg Blache.. We are a 3-4 team now and for the forseeable future.

Jackson has very limited lateral quickness, especially for an ILB. Not discounting any of his plays but did you see how long it took him to build any forward momentum on his INT vs the Browns?

He's maximizing the role he's playing in the defense but let's quit being prisoners of the moment and making him into something he's not.

Also, Jackson and Rak are almost the same exact size. Rak is definitely more chiseled and is stronger.

Yes. I was watching number 72 Stephen Bowen and there was a few plays I saw him just give up and lightly jog and lollygag basically. Let one of them take his spot even though Bowen is listed as DE. Either one of them would be better starting over Bowen. Just venting a bit but I'm proud of them so far.

I'm not sure that I entirely agree with your post. But you do get 10 points for using the underused word "lollygag."

I'm not entirely sure we use Jackson and Orakpo the same ways. I think we're using Kerrigan more like we used Orakpo and Jackson more like we used Kerrigan before. Might be wrong though.

I wasnt critical of hte idea of having jackson, orakpo, (and kerrigan) on the field at the same time. His proposal put Jackson and Jenkins on the field in a 4-3 instead of Bowen and Carriker on the field in a 3-4. I think Bowen and Carriker are much better 3-4 players than Jackson and Jenkins are 4-3 players. His scheme put two backups on the field instead of two more talented starters. It also put in two rookies as safeties with Hall and Wilson still our starting CBs. it was a completely stupid proposal in every way.

I don't think the 10 points you awarded were warranted because the word "lollygagging" is a baseball term.

pretty sure lollygagging is just English and had nothing to do with baseball.

Re: Is there room for Orakpo and Rob Jackson?

Rob Jackson is a beast. Brian Orakpo is a beast. If I were Bruce Allen, I would definitely stronger consider trading Orakpo and re-signing Jackson. I'm not saying Bruce should trade Orakpo. I'm saying that he should consider trading him. Jackson has turned out to be a force on defense.

Rob Jackson's stock has definitely increased greatly.

Re: Is there room for Orakpo and Rob Jackson?

I don't think we should expect Carriker to automatically be the same player when he returns. He's a bit long in the tooth and coming off a nasty injury, so it won't surprise me if he doesn't regain starter status for the 2013 season.

We already run a hybrid 3-4, switching between 4-3 looks and 3-4 looks pretty regularly. Our 4-3 package could be Kerrigan, Cofield, Turd Ferguson, Orakpo on the line and Riley, Fletch and Jackson behind em. The 3-4 look is Jenkins/Carriker, Cofield, Bowen on the line and Kerrigan, Fletcher, Riley, Orakpo/Jackson behind them.

We can keep both guys without breaking the bank. Orakpo's injury and lack of elite production works in our favor, and Jackson can be kept too.
