I know we all love and respect Tedy but we all realize he has slowed down the past 2 years and his role at this point is as a mentor to Mayo and the younger guys and maybe BB could decide its time to start a new player at ILB next to Mayo. Bruschi did have a decent season in 08 with him being up in tackles but speed is the question now,actually it has been for the last 2 years. Does anyone think if Bruschi does not have a great camp or preseason and looks a little worn that BB would decide to start either Lenon or Guyton opposite Mayo at the inside spot and only use Bruschi in a 3 or 4 man rotation and less on the field than years before? Could the starter next to Mayo be someone other than 54 on opening night? I doubt it,I think BB has too much respect for Tedy to not start but if there is a situation that one of the other guys is better at that time on opening day,does BB pull the plug and go with youth at ILB?? I think Bruschi faces some serious competition for the job this year with young talent and speed all around the roster at the position,although experience is definately the asset he has a huge edge over anyone.
