For as long as I have been watching the guy, in my 15 or so years of serious football watching as an 'average fan", I am not seeing any glaring weaknesses that the other three guys who made up our LB corps had.
He is a bit slow in coverage, but then again, so was Clark Haggans, so is Woodley, so is Harrison for that matter.
Timmons is faster in coverage, but is hot and cold in run support. Foote has been stuffing opposing ballcarriers behind the LoS for our defense for years now.
I meant the weak link in the defense a few years back when we were loaded with play makers.
I don't think that could be said now.
