Scheme...mostly. The game after Aldon got sent to rehab, Fangio made the right move by moving Brooks over to the WILL (Aldon's spot) and rushing him there about 50% of the time. As a result, he had 1.5 sacks in that time and some TFL, pressures, hits, etc. Now? He moves the Skuta/Lemonier combo over there, moves Brooks back to the SAM and has him in coverage a lot the past two games (played great there) but you get the picture...scheme. Maybe Fangio didn't think Skuta/Lemonier were stout enough on the strong side (SAM) against constant double-teams and tried to free them up more over at the WILL (single OT) and next to Justin (occupies 2 often); so far 2 sacks in the past 2 games and neither are by an OLB.
