I'll pose my question again.

Why would you make a Pro Bowler change positions? The kid is a top 5 MLB in the NFL RIGHT NOW.
This is an easy question to answer. B/c Ryans is such an excellent athlete he can play both MLB and OLB. Moving Ryans to WLB and putting Thomas in the MLB spot solves two position problems with one player.

You can never have too many stud LB's.

Bruce Matthews, a HOF, played every position along the OL.

DeMeco Ryans is a Bruce Matthews kind of football player.

The bold says it all. I too think the kid is that good, that smart & that adaptable. He wasn't the best defender in the SEC by accident....those kind of accidents just don't happen.

You might wanna go befor you go and elevate our young LB into the hall of fame....and rewatch some of the games. He made a lot of bad guesses and missteps last year... and every big run the defense gave up last year Demeeeeco was on one of his fishing expeditions. Just saying there. Demeeeco is tallented....he doesn't walk the water.... yet.

Unless you're going to move Ryans...what is the point of this ? They just released Barber...so you're going to pay Thomas more to back up Ryans than we were going to pay Barber, whom we just cut ?

If you look hard enough at tape of any player at any position in the league you can find mistakes. Point is DeMeco on a consistent basis makes plays. Being voted as a Texan to the starting pro-bowl spot says players and coaches respect the hell out of the job you are doing.

Exactly, and just because a player looks like he is out of position does not mean he is not in the position that the coaches want him to be. Chasing the RB or TE out of the back field so when it is a running play he is covering someone else. The long running plays are not his fault but the fault of the DTs who can not stop the running plays.

Comes from the root word colloquial meaning to collect. Often used in reference to a tax collector. Wesley Snipes (acting vampire) has much to say about such folks. Kumquat is an ingredient in certain types of potato salad. To be labeled between the two is quite a put down, I must say.

John Vilma is said to be looking for a new home. He did great out of college in a 4-3 system, then lost his fit and sparkle when the system was changed to the 3-4. He's coming off of major knee surgery, but seems to be rehabing quickly..............
