Default ILB Darryl Sharpton to start against Lions

Quote:
Texans inside linebacker Darryl Sharpton will start on Thursday at the Detroit Lions.
Sharpton, who had seven tackles on Sunday in his first game off the Physically Unable to Perform list, will play at Mo linebacker on the weakside. Tim Dobbins, who has started the last four games, will be a game-time decision because of a shoulder injury. Bradie James will continue to start at Mike linebacker on the strongside.

Cool. I'm excited to see what he can do.

Am I wrong in thinking that this had something to do with how bad we looked defensively this past Sunday? I'm basing this on how bad we looked when we had to replace Cushing that week we played Green Bay.

I think you are right.

After giving it some thought I noticed the similarities that took place in how players were wide open. It seemed as though we had to bring the safety down more to help out. I haven't really looked at any film but I find it peculiar how the only two times our defense looked bad was when we had to replace that Mo Linebacker spot. Only problem is, Dobbins got a week to correct it, Sharpton is only getting like two days.

I don't think so, EJ.

True, Sharpston missed an assignment in the end zone and gave them an easy TD there.
He needs to correct that, but it was his only real blemish of the game.

But a bunch of their passes were caught in double team or more, with the exception of the catch and run by Shorts on KJ and the 39yd catch in the middle by Blackmon (also on KJ).
On the first one, we wanted to bring a zero-coverage blitz.
One the second one, we had the safeties in coverage, but somebody messed up their assignment.

So, I don't see any problem with the Mo, not a huge one anyway.

perhaps but it does say Dobbin injured his shoulder...This game should be good for Sharpton to prove his worth. Hopefuly, he can go into coverage well also.
