Why exactly can Reed not be moved to Inside LB next year? He is relentless and one of the strongest players on our team. Has coverage ability, blitzing ability and is used to taking on bigger players.

Who would you put on the weak-side?

The only "pass rusher" we have is Mercilus & they probably didn't want to overwhelm him if we didn't have to. Barwin showed some ability from WOLB last season, but this year, even at WOLB, he hasn't been used exclusively as a pass rusher.

So some of his "lack of production" is due to not being on kill all the time. But only some.

I'd love to see it. However, there are two things they've got to think about when assinging positions.

#1, I think, is getting your best players on the field.
#2, rotation/depth.

I want Brooks, Barwin, Mercilus, & Cush on the field, I think that's our best four. But then what? Barwin & Reed are our only SOLBs. I imagine when Whitney comes on the field, he plays WOLB & either Barwin or Reed plays SOLB. I like Brahman, but he's really a weakside guy, I think, and Nading is lucky to have a job..... still.

Maybe Mr Alexander can play the SOLB, I think Dobbins & Sharpton are straight inside players.

Brooks Reed is not the right type of athlete to play ILB full time. He doesn't have good enough lateral agility.

Barwin has a beter shot at being an ILB than Brooks Reed.

I don't know Rey, his numbers in the short shuttle and three-cone are comparable to Sharpton. He's faster in the 10-20 and 40.
And he's much bigger than Sharpton.
I think he should be able to handle it.

If bradie James and Ryans can play ILB with their agility then Reed can too.

They talked about playing Reed in the middle in the preseason. I posted about it here.

Quote:
Herring also talked about Reed’s “linebacker body.”

“That’s where people get discombobulated with him,” Herring said. “Look, he’s 6-2½, 250. The fact that he was playing with his hand in the dirt (the three-point stance of a defensive end) in college turned him into a ‘tweener’ to some people. But he was always a ‘Mike’ linebacker to us. Half the teams in the draft wanted him bad, and the other half didn’t think he could (make the transition). We were in the half that saw the upside potential. He’s still projecting and growing as a player. The sky’s the limit.”

Also, Herring said somewhere in one of his interviews that Reed is one of the strongest guys on the team (I think it was when they drafted him.

In fact, when I look at the combine results, his 30 reps on the bench is up there for the last 3 draft classes. That's more than a bunch of DT and NT can manage.

Strong, fast, quick, good lateral movement.
Yeah, I think those are some good traits for an ILB.
He should be able to take on the Guards and Centers.

His time in the first 10 yards is better than a bunch of DBs.
Surely he can keep up with the RBs in the short area.

Oh, and his times are better than Tim Dobbins in every category by at least 1/10 of a second.

10-yd split, 20-yd split, 40-yd dash, 20 SS, and 3-cone, you name it.

His 10 yard split is only a hair short of Clay Matthews. We got a steal with Reed, and he has a lot more potential than people realize.

Lots of guys have posted good times and can't play a lick. I figured someone would bring up his combine numbers.

I can't explain it really, but some guys just have better reactionary and anticipatory athleticism.

When you are running drills you can practice that drill....over and over...you know exactly what you're going to do...the drill doesn't change...

Even if you don't practice, you know exactly what you're doing far ahead of time.

On the field it's not the same. Guys with slower times all of a sudden look quicker and more explosive.

Mario posted great numbers too, but he doesn't play nearly as explosive as those numbers indicate. Doesn't explode off the line like you'd think he should based on numbers.

Really different when your brain knows 'on your mark, set, go' vs. Trying to get off the ball on a qb's cadence.

Are you trying to tell me reed looks quick and explosive out there on the field????

In Brandon harris' rookie season Vance Joseph basically said the nickel position was his.

They said they liked what reed and barwin were doing, but bow they are saying they need more pressure.

Coaches say a lot of things. Don't take it all as gospel.

While it's true to a degree, the Combine and pro-day numbers can't be ignored.

Reed's numbers show that he has the tool; whether he has the mentality to play the position is the other important factor.

Let's see, Reed played 2-way in HS, as a DE and a FB; he was around 220 at the time.
The Wildcats worked him at HB and TE.
Then came Sonny Dykes and his Air-raid offense.
They moved Mitchell to DT and Reed to DE.
That guy is not only versatile but should also have a pretty good grasp of both sides of the ball.
Wade and Herring must have seen that and started play him some as an LB on the second level against the Jags.
(So the talk of seeing Mercilus, Barwin, and Reed on the field at the same was fulfilled.)
There was one play in particular that shows his capability at the second level.
I will take some snap shots and show them later.

I heard much of Kubiak's 3:30 presser. I thought he was asked some pretty tough questions.... Pancakes kept pressing. I thought Kubiak had some good answers. I saw a bit of it on NFLN a few minutes ago I'm sure it will be on Houstontexans.com in its entirety & post a link for you.

If you're interested, you should check out the Gary Kubiak show coming up at 5. They said he's agreed to do the whole hour, should be interesting.

Barry asked about more mobile quarterbacks.

His response was (paraphrasing): "if you look at the afc teams still playing none of the qb's are very mobile..."

Yeah thats true coach, but they dont run a bootleg east west offensive attack like we do.
