      i actually agree but for a diff. reason. i think the talent level on our lb core is actually ironically as good as most the teams in the nfl. im gonna enjoy seeing a couple of players reach their proclaimed level of play (Curry and Rivers) and I'm gonna enjoy seeing Herz look like a completely diff player this yr and play with a chip on his shoulder.

        Your optimism is approaching legendary proportions.

                  I usually appreciate your homeristic views but this time you've gone too far.

                        JWill is going to start.
                        Because of all of the effort and examination being poured into these predictions, the draft is a robust market that, in the aggregate, does a good job of sorting prospects from top to bottom.1 Yet despite so many people trying to “beat the market,” no single actor can do it consistently. Abnormal returns are likely due to luck, not skill. But that hasn’t stopped NFL executives from behaving with the confidence of traders.

                          Personally if that's how it ends up i'm kind of optimistic as well. Our linebacker core was mediocre at best and a serious liabiilty at times. Cannot see how this group is any worse and they all have the potential to be much better. Especially if they all play with an attitude of something to prove.

                          Fresh blood in the middle may also help us for the first half of the season it's gonna be tough to go back to last seasons tape to game plan for us under the assumption the the middle of the field is a receivers playground. it's gonna take a couple of games minimum to see any patterns to exploit. and i expect these players to improve as a unit in that time frame as well. hopefully giving few options for opposng teams to exploit

                          and seeing an improved d-line is gonna be a big help to both the LB's and secondary.


                          my concern is the secondary C-Webb is a huge question mark. If regains his form we can be a great defense. If he plays like last year we might as well spot opposing teams 7 points a game. I'm really really hoping c-webb picks up his game!! Terrell Thomas can be a huge plus but can he really hold up who knows? and with the loss of Kenny Phillips Safety play is a big time question mark although I see some potential there. Prince should be good to go but it's shaky from there and could go either way.

                          really at this point i feel the LB core is probably a reasonable upgrade from last year with a lot of upside if they can stay healthy and can come together as a unit.

                            maybe. Your guess is as good as mine.

                              I agree, if he's healthy . . . . but he seems to still be bothered by a knee injury lingering from last season.
