Well Ian Williams and Dorsey seem to have earned the trust of Fangio so we will definitely rotate our NT. Williams also has displayed ability to get to the QB so he may be added to the rotation of Justin Smith and MacDonald when we are in 4 man fronts like nickel. It will be interesting to see if they sub in Lemonier for Brooks at times during those 4 man fronts. He displayed a great burst all preseason but Brooks is pretty damn good too... So while we may not rotate all that much in the beginning we will have the ability to rotate during the end of the season which is when we really need it anyways.
True! Technically though, Skuta is slated to back up Brooks while Lemonier is backing up Aldon. That said, I have little doubt when he is used, he'll be rushing from both spots. But I'm wondering if Skuta will be used as the primary backup at first since he can rush, play ILB and will be active b/c of his ST play.
