Sing wont bench Spike's and Heitman, having 2 captains sitting is not good.

That's a valid point. Best case scenario is that if Bowman succeeds, it will be Spikes&Bowman rotation depending on the defensive package.
Word on the street is that Spike's got hurt while doing his celebratory dance.

If he is better, younger and faster why not?

Spikes will be back in there when he's healthy. Bowman made more than a few mistakes in coverage on monday. Lets not get all moist just yet.

No he didn't. All the pass plays made on him were short gains and the Saints punted on all of those drives.

I cant see him out playing Spikes this early, and Spikes should only be out 1-2 weeks (I'm assuming). Like another poster said maybe a rotation for them.....?

Bowman = Patrick Willis Jr.

Yeah, he's a miniature Willis, the guy has unbelievable speed and field vision/instincts, and can make the right tackles when it counts. It's time he learns his place now before he takes over next year when (it hurts me to say this) Spikes' contract might not be renewed.

Spikes is getting too old as is. I'd like to see him come back as an assistant LB coach/ dance instructor though

Spikes is a great leader for that defense, but it is definitely time to groom an replacement. Bowman is promising for sure, but I agree with not getting too moist at this early juncture.

I'm happy we have Bowman, and know hes our future with Willis at MLB....BUT we need Spikes on this team..as maybe a backup..or some sort of coach/mentor for Willis. Willis and Spikes have been best friends since they've been together.
am i missing something ?

i thought spikes was doing a good job

id like bowman to start next to willis eventually but i like spikes to start right now
