Then there's the "MIKE" which is the middle LB and implies that the these 3 acronyms were meant for the 4-3 and not 3-4, strictly speaking.
I used the right and left because of the message I was responding to. I was trying to show that the Sam and Will aren't connected to Right and Left.
And you agreed with me.
