    Everyone remember that the team will only every have three LBs on the field 25-30% of the time. The most common formation is the nickle formation which is used 42% of the time. The nickle back plays more than the third LB.

    I'll be with you come October and McCarthy is still hobbling around. There's still a slim chance he'll be fine.

    I don't think Munch called him the best Linebacker period. In the conference if I remember it correctly, he said Fokou was the best "inside" linebacker. I doubt Fokou is outplaying Zach Brown and Akeem Ayers.

    Might be. I hate that. I hate it for him and for the team. Colin is a hardworking animal of a football player. He has been very unfortunate as far as injuries go. I wondered if he'd ever be the same after that concussion. He had concussion symptoms for like 3 months didn't he? I hope we're wrong, and he becomes comeback player of the year in 2014.

    Yes, inside linebacker. Sorry if I didn't make that more clear but that is what he is saying.

    This would be interesting, problem is Urlacher wants $$$. He's to big name to take a 1yr/vet min contract, not saying he's cocky - he just wouldn't accept it. He's happier retiring as a Bear and that's it.

    I wouldn't mind it though, sure... he can't cover, but he's still a great leader and good run stuffer. He would simply be a 2-down ILB w/ Ayers (at DE/34 OLB), Brown, & Gooden in passing situations.

    Too much drama. Also we already have enough bald white guys on the team.
