  • Last year's "vaunted" linebacker class

    J Will = MIA (injured?)

    Greg Jones = off team

    Herzlich = only good on special teams

    Paysinger = special teamer

    We need to start drafting a good lb corp in higher rounds.

    Who said last year had a vaunted LB class?

    J Will was the only guy that showed any potential on defense, and he has played very well, just has had a couple injuries this season.

    Really injuries have been the biggest issue, Rivers is a constant injury case.

      Williams is a keeper, just a bad year injury wise.

        Fans classified Greg Jones as the next London Fletcher and believed he was better than Goff and Blackburn LOL

        Herzlich was a guy that sooo many fans were drooling over and there was sooo many posts about why we didnt draft him.

          That still doesn't mean it was a vaunted LB draft class.

            Look up the definition of vaunted...

            Guys were praising this lb class like Reese struck gold in a coal mine.

            Now here we are and none are realky contributing outside of special teams.

              I don't remember the board of FANS saying this was the best LB group we have ever seen, and a message board full of fans does not make that a vaunted class.

                Fans were LOVING this class especially when they all made the team. You must not have been on the board around that time if you dont remember how crazy this board was about those backers.

                    I thought they got a couple good STs players and J Will would be a future starter at weakside.

                      I know he was drafted in 2010, but what about Clint Sintim? He was supposed to be pretty good but injuries hurt him. And JWill is the only guy you mentioned that's good. He's got good speed and could make tackles.

                          Sintim was awful. Even when he was healthy

                            Those guys dont play offense. Their absence had nothing to do with the loss.

                              JR and the scouting teams philosophy is to build a strong D-line and secondary so that the weakness at LB will go unnoticed. Is it working??..very debatable
