Default Re: SAM and MIC

Sam refers to the strong side LB, usually lining up over the TE. Some teams switch their LBs across the formation, depending on which side the TE lines up. Others, like the Texans, don't.

Mic, or Mike, refers to the middle LB. Like DeMeco, Urlacher, or Ray Lewis. They usually lineup behind the defensive line across from the center in a 43 defense.
