http://www.boston.com/sports/football/patriots/articles/2008/07/30/williams_keeps_it_on_the_inside/ I haven't seen this discussed on the boards as much as I thought it would be. Any thoughts here? My gut tells me that Belichick has Hobson and Mayo working together in the 2nd unit b/c he envisions these guys starting together some point during the year - and depending upon if we re-sign Hobson - in the future. I've read multiple times now that Bruschi playing SILB full time was the weakest link on the defense last season once Colvin went down. So, my assumption - and I could be way off base - is that Tank Williams playing WILB alongside Bruschi on the "first unit" is misleading. They're the first team at this point early in the season. Specifically for Williams playing at ILB - obviously it gives us greater coverage abilities. Clearly BB has targeted that this offseason as an area of need. Just another hunch that could be way off - but if Tank is playing at ILB, and coverage is the emphasis, then we're much more likely to see Meriweather out there at FS than Sanders, and have Sanders/Harrison playing SS, with things changing in nickel/dime situations. Breer was on NEST the other nite talking about how this team really needs Meriweather's coverage ability at FS and I agree.
