    The topic is just a passive aggressive stab at not drafting a LB. Even though we haven't been LB-centric team in well over a decade. We're about DEs now, not LBs. It really isn't a big deal.

    So, making a comment, based on evidence, is passive-aggressive?

    Sorry Drez, just one more thing we don't agree about. Like you said, no big deal.

    No, I'm just able to see through the thinly veiled passive aggressiveness of the topic, as this topic isn't some sort of new revelation... It's been since the late 80's/early 90's since we've had a dominant crew of LBs.

    This thread amounts to you crying about not drafting a LB.

    This thread is me making a statement, and you getting bent over it.

    JPP getting double/triple teamed all year long and he still led that line in Sacks. I'm sorry but if you got one guy on that Line demanding that much attention every single down then the rest of that line better look like all stars.

    Antonio pierce deserves honorable mention
    I agree

But not now and not in the foreseeable future.
    Teams evolve, we won two super bowls with so-so linebackers
