Timmons is widely regarded as one of the most underrated ILBs in the entire league. Go look at any site (FOX, CBS, NBC, ESPN, BR) and look at articles written about Lawrence.

He doesn't 'get owned' and he isn't bad 'down for down' at all, actually. He has to compensate for playing with an old and slow Linebacker in the middle and thus has to take on Larry's job as well. He's playing both Inside Linebacker positions and he's doing a pretty damn good job doing it, too.
