Wong also said that Babin will be practicing against and learning from the best blocking tightend in the league, Our new guy Bruener.

Since there is no true middle in the 3-4, they usually refer to it as RILB and LILB (where the "I" stands for inside). Not trying to be a spelling/grammar nazi. I'm just trying to keep you informed.

I'm not sure if this is up-to-date, but ESPN shows Sharper on the right not the left, Ses.

On previous postings, I think we agreed that the Texans don't flip their outside linebackers based on the strength of the offense (ie. the LOLB stays on the left and the ROLB stays on the right, regardless of the position of the TE and other 'strength' indicators).

Are we sure the Texans don't flip the ILBs? Perhaps instead of left and right, sharper and Foreman are Mac and Buck linebackers, who flip based on the strength call of the defense.

Does anyone know for sure? If so, I would appreciate hearing from you.

Foreman and Sharper flip flop. Watch the first defensive series of the Carolina game for example.

Thank you for the info.

Is it easy to determine who is playing strong and who is playing weak? While it is not always based on a TE (for example 0 TE or 2 TEs), was it fairly straight forward to determine their strength calls?

There were a couple plays where it was obvious that Foreman lined up on the fullback side but there were others that you couldn't tell at all.

For some reason I had a mental image of Foreman exclusively at LILB (probably based on what I've seen when I'm at the games), but I also fast forwarded through the Buffalo game from last year and Sharper lined up a lot at LILB.

There's obviously situations where they switch. I don't have enough tape to determine the predominant set - if there is one.

It doesn't appear that way.
