I read the other day when the media was granted access to Manusky they were running some of the nickel packages. I dont know if anyone picked up on this but the front 4 went down like this....
Lawson and Haralson as the ends with Justin Smith and Balmer as the tackles.
Now that brought a big smile to my face! If balmer progresses into a legit DT him and Smith will eat up blockers for sure leaving 98 and 99 on the outside to wreak some havoc! All they need to focus on is getting after the passer in nickel situations. This could also open up alot of possibilities for creative blitz packages with Manny's coverage skills if we wanted to blitz an ILB (willis!).
