But now, with Will Witherspoon stepping up as an Eagle MLB, my question unto you is: What are we gonna do when Big Stew is back? Witherspoon is a fine LB, has the ability to play MLB, WLB, and SLB, but is most suited as a WILL. Well, if Stew comes back at full health, what is the plan gonna be? The fact is that our best LBs are Stew, 'Spoon, and Akeem. But, who plays inside? Stew was originally drafted to play Strongside, so do we move him back there? Do we even keep 'Spoon? His contract is HUGE.
The way I see it, next year's LBs (if we don't get any big time free agents) will be
but, because of the flexability of these guys, we could see:
or, do we resign Gocong? Do we still have faith in Gocong?
MAYBE SOME 3-4 LOOKS???
DE: Laws (a 3-4 DE in college)
Weakside OLB: Trent Cole
Weakside ILB: 'Spoon
Sam ILB: Stew
Sam OLB: Gocong / Clemmons
or maybe a heavy package
or maybe a speed package:
SOLB: Clemmons / Babin
I'm diggin this flexability. And this is if we don't draft or sign a big-time weakside or strongside 'backer (which we probably will)
