Thank you for some solid reasoning.
Somehow the fan base forgets that a 3-4 defense should be about the LB's. Yeah we put a good defense on the field, but need more plays from the 4 guys at LB and less worrying about our D line getting sacks.
Time to find replacements for Foote and Harrison. Hopefully Spence can rehab and start next season.
