After another disappointing loss with a ridiculous negative to positive ratio on both sides of the ball, and with someone calling the local wrap up broadcast and speaking of a message board that fans are saying that the Whiz's seat has a cooling issue (total pun intended,) and it's warming up. With the season at 1-5 taking the same approach is just plain not gonna work, technically we still are not out of the divison race just yet.
Time to go young at the LB position. Let's face it at least when we were the OLB nursing home for Berry and Okeafor we got an edge rush and less the desirable coverage, now that Haggans and Porter are in the "home" we have one LB who seems to have far too many Alzheimeresque plays as he gets deeper into his twilight. (Miller on a TD and taking the play off when your 3 steps away from a sure sack are the freshest) and a former edge rushing menace who has not been terrible, but isn't really gonna help any defense win. As the title says it is time to purge the nursing home and bring in a new tandem. I'd like to have an official nickname on ROTB for O'Brien Schofield and Sam Acho by the Ravens game. So far what I have collected is that Acho is brilliant but needs time to loosen up and adjust to the way he is going to play at this level (Mr. Lott I have full faith in your ability to get him where he needs to be physically) and Schofield has already shown an ability to get after the passer, but according to the coaching staff he is apparently pretty thick, in the skull department. Darly Washington is showing us he is here to make Dansby nothing but a distant memory...nuff said. Lenon is not going to get any better...Nuff said. I don't know what to say about Bradley he may be our defensive version of Beanie. No sense in wasting time on our 3 LB's over 30 as they will not get any better, however they will make for great depth in the event that our new tandem can make some serious noise. (Which we all know they are capable of)
