Timmons will have to be ready to man Watson(he is the only LB fast enough). L Woodley must also be ready because speed is needed on the outside to get pressure on Brady. A power rush like Harrisons and Haggans wont get'r done.
Nice point about Timmons....He does have the speed and talent to be a game changing talent that can cover TEs or even blitz the QB....But I don't seem him being a factor this year.....Its a shame since I do think Coach LeBeau could have done some interesting things with Timmons and his multi skills.....Now hopefully a light bulb goes off in Timmons head and he starts showing he is picking up this defense to get some playing time....
