Default James Farrior

What's wrong with JF? His performance has been a far cry from his DP of the year in 2004. His performance was pretty weak in the Jags game. If we can't count on our LB corps, then we are $crewed. We might as well bid good bye to the post-season. Our D scheme lives and dies by the LB corps performance. In the past, we didn't need great NT & DEs because our LBs took care of the business. But now our front 3 are not exactly a challenge to our opposing OLinemen. Poor DL performance+Poor LB performance = disasterous defense. I am not surprised that the Jags dominated our team on both sides of the ball.

We don't need to draft a linebacker this year I think woodley and timmons will do just fine if given playing time.

Farrior was playing well at the start of the year. Maybe with him getting up in age the 16 game season is just starting to wear on him.

James will be 33 years old in January, so you may be right.

His stats are down a bit from the last two seasons, but what I've noticed most about James the last couple of games is that his intensity and fire is lacking. This isn't the James Farrior I'm used to seeing on the field.

Listen to me folks....J. Leman, ILB from Illinois...I dont say this lightly but this kid reminds me of Lambert himself in the way he approaches the game!!! I think that we HAVE to address ILB early in the next draft (3rd-4th round) unless we switch to 4-3 next year and Timmons moves inside.

ive seen leman and looks really good ILB. if we can get him in the 4th round or later, that would be a great pickup. He seems like a foottball player and not an athlete who plays football. I take the football player over the athlete

I could not agree with you more, the fire is not there. I have been noticing this all year across the board. The guy with the most fire is playing very badly, A Smith.

He will open some eyes in the Rose bowl and his draft stock will probably go up. But the draft is stocked with good LBers this year and we have to find some young blood.

I would be shocked if we drafted an LB before round 4 this draft. Here's a crazy idea how bout we find a FA LB and sign him. Damn...thats scary...
