Are we better at LB?

I've watched all three preseason games and I must say I expected to be impressed with this group. DJ should be better with another year of experience and I'm all for Bell losing his job.

I've not seen the gains from DJ I'd hoped. Edwards hasn't shown much and Nap Harris has looked nappy. Key Fox (one of my personal favs) even looks like he's forgotten how to tackle.

This squad should be better than last year. Have you seen improvement or will we?

"vanilla" is just another 400 lb chiefs gorilla, I've seen every other team in the league blitzing on D and using motion on the line during offensive possesions. I understand you're not going to show your hand alot during preseason but that was the cover two we were running against the saints, and that folks is our defense. Is it better? Hard to tell, but it is what it is. As far as our offense goes thats it, add LJ to what we were doing during the last three games and thats all you get. Solari has 0 reason to be running an NFL offense. He has no creativity and no imagination, its run,run,pass, punt, get used to it- as long as Herm is here its all u get.

Solari has worked with, and for, some brilliant offensive coaches. I have no doubt that THIS offense is a product of Solari calling the plays his head coach tells him to call.

It's easy to be fooled that we have great LB after the Lew Bush years.

DJ is probably our best LB, but he is only considered average according to the stats compiled by Football Outsiders. He's missed a lot of tackles this preseason. Donnie Edwards is still Donnie Edwards. Very active in downfield coverage, but still tends to get drug downfield on tackles. He'll be a huge upgrade over Bell. I'm not sold on Nap Harris, yet. He SHOULD be an upgrade over KM, but...

We probably don't have anyone that desperately needs to be replaced, but we don't have any probowlers either.

If they're playing 85 snaps every week because the offense 3-and-outs 10 times a game, it wouldn't matter if Jesus was playing linebacker. They're going to wear down. Along with everyone else on the defense.

Particularly if the scheme continues to be designed around the concept of allowing as many yards as possible between the 20s.

Why would he risk his career? After running this offense he'll never get a chance as an O-cor. again, if he had anything to trick up a D we will see it this year. Hes gonna be facing 11 guys in the box to stop LJ, if he cant beat that D he cant beat any.

Our LBs are doing well, but Bell's still going to be a liability in coverage.

How is he risking his career? The NFL doesn't do anything except recycle coaches. He'll have a job as long as he wants one.

It's hard to tell. The first string D has done a pretty good job on some goal line and short yardage situations. Then again, the playcalling on offense and defense has been pretty plain. The Broncos had a sweet red zone TD right before the half this week. NO basically tried to run it up the gut; I don't think that is really their style or strength.

If Jimmy Raye can keep getting jobs, Mike Solari can keep getting jobs.

The real irony is that the main reason his offense is failing is the offensive line.

Your a head coach would you really hire the guy who ran this offense?

The line is awfull. I wont debate you on that, but ask the colts if the line had anything to do with them dominating us in the playoff game. They new exactly what we were gonna do before we left the huttle, you don't win many games being that predictable.

I always pictured Jesus as more of a safety.

I wouldn't.

But guys like Herm would, and HAVE.

Jimmy Raye and Paul Hackett can get jobs. How many times did Dennis Erickson get a shot?

Mike Solari won't have any trouble.
