I'm against it. I'm still amazed at how some guys think this is a NEW wrinkle in the defense.
I dont even know where to start with you.
Who are these LBs who have played DE in a 4 down lineman set? I have watched every game for years and we havent had anybody good enough to play DE who was one of our OLBs. Manny has been hurt and Parys is just coming into his own.
Who are these players you speak of because I can only recall Green and he is a situational player at best.
This specific set of players in this nickle set is new and something that looks good on paper atleast.
You didn't see Haralson playing DE in the nickel/dime packages last season???
And as far as Green, he was still an OLB. And up until last season, he was our best pass rushing OLB.
All you guys jumped on NCommand for his earlier comment, but he is right about Lawson getting man-handled playing DE.
And if you think Haralson and Lawson are so fast that they could "run right by" the tackles, you are mistaken.
