If that is that case for the Dline, then why do they not do that with the OLB, who are rushing every play against the same 330 lb men? Plus they are dropping into coverage and covering more ground. wouldnt it make sense to use the players this team had this past season and in the future. You got 3 solid OLBs, Babin and Peek should start next year, then you go wong playing outside and inside. Plus Polk inside some and you got a 5 man rotation. Would keep a lot fresher legs out htere with better production. Just a thought from all year long ive had.
