Default How screwed are we at LB now?

Losing Demeco we suddenly look really, really sketchy at LB.

IIRC, we have Bentley, Adibi, Sharpton, and Nixon for depth.



Pretend you're Bush, Kubes, and Smith - what do you do now??

I plug in Sharpton (assuming he can get healthy) and hope for the best.

You also have a couple of days to make a trade; we could use help on all 3 levels of the defense.

If you put in Sharpton, do you plug him in the Mike slot and let him make all the defensive calls?

I'm not sure I trust a rookie to do that. Or Diles.

Damn. Not a lot of great options here....

Adibi and Bentley are ahead of Sharpton and they should be.

Of course, it probably depends on who can get healthy the fastest, but I would not be surprised to see all three of them play if all of them are healthy.

Diles is probably your new mike unless Bentley gets healthy enough to play.

Yes. All preseason the chatter was that he was drafted as DeMeco's back-up. I don't think he's done anything to lose that spot.

Who's "fat" at LB in the NFL? No one I can think of. I don't know of anyone you can trade for.

How much of the Defense did Demeco call, or was he just the relay from Bush?

Honestly, Cushing has always stolen tackles from Demeco. He's just quicker to the ball.

Losing Ryans will hurt us, but not in an extreme fashion. I honestly dont think we could get any worse.

DeMeco was the QB of the defense. Diles will shift over to Mike and do his best DeMeco impression but we're not replacing a pro bowler. Best case scenario Diles will do what he always does: Be a solid starter wherever the coaches put him.

It will be interesting to see who emerges as the starting Will over the rest of the season.

Didn't Pollard take turns calling plays at one point in the season?

I dont think Diles will automatically take over

It's not like we've been getting stellar LB play already. In fact's it's
been horrible. If they play mediocre, it will be an improvement.
The Colts are playing right now without THEIR MLB (Brackett) NOR
their starting Strong Safety (Sanders/Bullitt.) I don't see that defense
giving up 400yds/30points-a-week.

I don't give a shit about their excuses. They just don't execute
worth a damn.
