    Not really.

    Bears/Cutler: in the snow where the Patriots jumped out early and Chicago ended up mothballing the running game (only 14 runs all game)

    Packers: Packers ran the ball (38 for 143), and a backup QB shredded the defense

    Bills: 20 carries for 125. The key was stopping the passing game, which is not when Spikes is in the game anyway.

    Dolphins: scored 14 points or fewer in 4 of their last 5 games

    Guyton makes plays but spikes will be replacing him so you think we will more plays from Spikes then guyton.

    anyway , after suspension there is a 10 day excemption time. So we will not be allowed to pratice and do anything till wednesday of next week.

    ???

    There is a seven day roster exemption for Spikes while he gets back into shape, which means the team can have 54 players on the roster, as far as the rest of it, I have no idea what you are talking about.

    Our weak link is the line and run defense. Welcome back Mr. Spikes. He should really help in that area.

    He is strong in the middle and I expect him to walk right back into the starting line-up. I am a bit concerned about Moore/Cunningham being out this week as I think they are the strongest we have on the outside (and just possibly better than TBC/Nink rushing the passer) and signing Murrell makes me wonder if either Moore/Cunningham might not be back next week.

    Spikes doesn't replace Guyton.

    Altho Guyton doesn't normally play ILB....I thought he was playing inside during Spike's absence....

    Fletcher played some there too I believe.....:confused:

    Guyton may score the flashy touchdowns, but it is Spikes who does the dirty work up front.

    I watching Guyton during the Dolphins game, he got pushed back on just about every running play.

    I thought we were semi screwed when Spikes got suspended
    I like Guyton in passing situations
    It's that he get's utterly destroyed trying to shed blocks against the run that haunts me

    So huge getting the Mike back. Not only does it allow Guyton to go back to his normal role, but it does the same for Mayo. Mayo was playing out of position during the suspension. Considering how many damn plays he made during that time from the Mike, it's going to be special what he'll do now that he's back in the playmaking inside backer spot.

    Guyton is an ILB. He played WILB all last season next to Mayo, who was the SILB.

    Spikes plays SILB so it pushes Mayo over to WILB where he's much better, thus upgrading two spots for us.

    And you're right, Fletcher plays ILB. It's strange, as BB mentioned he's only been around only 2 other guys who made the switch from DE to ILB (Harry Carson from his Giants days, and Tedy Bruschi). He's been pretty good there too so far.
