I'm watching the replay of the Senior Bowl right now and Weatherspoon is definantly playing ILB and doing a damn fine job.

What does Timmons do? Yea he great in coverage but a middle linebacker u need to stop the run. He had almost half as less of Beason.

I think we made the wrong decision getting Timmons instead of Beason.

If we had Beason i bet he would of made that tackle which Farrior missed during week 3 v Bengals. I bet he would of wrapped up Ray Rice those 2 games. And he sure as hell wouldnt of got run over by McClain. Man how embarrasing especially on your goaline.

1. Timmons sat behind Larry Foote for 2 seasons
2. Timmons has started significantly less games than Beason yet has 12 sacks vs. Beason's 3
3.It is obvious that the two are asked to do considerably different things, cause Carolina runs a 4-3 and the Steelers run a 3-4

In conclusion it is unfair to compare the two players because of the difference in shceme and playing time.

no but he would of got alot more tackles than timmons this season if he started

beason also ran a faster 40 or tied it at the combine he doesn't blitz much because he dont want his ass run over on the goaline on national t.v.

The problem with comparing Timmons to Weatherspoon is, coming out of college, the two are on different levels. Weatherspoon has started at linebacker for Missouri for two seasons and in that time has talied 285 tackles (155 this past season which is second all time a Mizzu). When Timmons came out he was a one year starter and had only 79 tackles that season. I believe we drafted Timmons as more of a raw talent that could be molded into our prototypical LB. Weatherspoon on the other hand is more refined and could probably start for us on day one. You just can't say Weatherspoon is Timmons.

Teams also gashed Carolina up the middle this year because Kemoeatu ws hurt. Tackle numbers are a bad indicator of how good you are because it depends on things like defensive line play and how often teams ran at you. And a MIKE will usually get more tackles than a 3-4 ILB. Way the defense works. Farrior has had many seasons where he's had way less tackles than what Beason has put up.

I don't get the Timmons hate, He's extremely athletic and sure, while he isn't like Farrior, he can hold his own against the run. Excellent pass rusher to and will only get beter in time and a year removed from nagging ankle injuries.

Supa, why are you bringing up the Brian Leonard play? Farrior missed the tackle, not Timmons.

Enough with the hate on Timmons.. watch him have a monster year in 2010 after a year of starting experience under his belt and make you all eat your words.. I actually liked what I saw from him the 2nd half of the season, especially when we blitzed him up the middle

I'm not hating on Timmons im questioning why they passed up the talent of Michael Griffien and the likes of Jon Beason.
