I also fell under the group that believe vince will be a solid ILB for us.

I also think his success will go hand and hand with the recovery of spence. Williams and Spence would be a dynamic rotation at that ILB spot. ...vince playing early downs and spence playing passing downs.

Not if it's Polamalu playing Linebacker again.

Garvin has some potential as well.

You're assuming WIlliams has no chance of getting better at coverage. He very well could get better at coverage and give us the multi dimensional look that you covet, or he may not. I'm willing to take the risk.

Players nowadays play much more specialized roles. I dont think it's necessarily a bad thing to be just as good at one part of the game as you are bad at another. You gotta take the good with the bad with some players, because not only is it hard to find someone that is multi dimensional, but theyre also hard to keep around (i.e. they cost a lot).

They simply cant have that be a common occurrence, or even an occurrence at all. It just didnt work well, I dont see why they would stick with something that so obviously failed.

Their faith in Williams is why I don't think we'll take Mosley.

Football is about matchups. If we are playing the Ravens and they have a 2WR and power I set and see Vince Williams, they do what? Audible to a pass and split out Ray Rice for Timmons to cover and a FB for Williams to Cover?

When teams go ace backfield and 3 WR's, the Steelers go nickle or dime and the ILB and NT likely come off the field anyways.

Vince Williams is a good enough athlete to play zone defense. In base offensive personell, he is on the field. Most teams take an ILB off the field in Dime anyways. The 49ers take Patrick Willis off the field in dime, so I am not too worried if Vince Williams comes off for the Steelers.

I think you point this out to somehow discredit Vince Williams as a player, but not sure.

The Steelers Hall of Fame Defensive Coordinator decided in some situations to use a future Hall of Fame Defensive player in Polamalu, instead of a rookie 6th round ILB or a Free Agent ILB. It makes sense to me in some cases.

Vince Williams is a quality football player and he is going to be much improved since the game has slowed down for him this year.
