    This might confirm the 4-3 as our majority alignment this season.

    Could be a post-week 1 signing, but I hope not.

    Re: Lenon to be cut

    You may be correct, given the (lack of) depth at ILB now.

    I have to give Alexander credit. He played an extremely solid game against the Giants 1st and 2nd stringers.

    I hope the Pats look for someone to add, though.

    Re: Lenon to be cut

    but they weren't throwing at him..........he's always been decent against the run, but totally inept at chasing TE's and RB's in coverage........he could suffice in a 2-down situation ala ted johnson.....just wish he were a big bigger if that's the case.......

    maybe they'll move ninkovich inside.......

    Re: Lenon to be cut

    Tanked - Not sure if you have the Giants game taped, but one of the reasons they weren't throwing at Alexander is that, when he was in coverage on Boss, Boss wasn't open. Alexander played him damn near perfect..

    If you look back at my posts, I've been very critical of Alexander and thought that he shouldn't have even been re-signed. So, I am giving the kid credit where its due. Something seemed to have finally clicked because he played very well against the Giants. Both in coverage and against the run..

    Re: Lenon to be cut

    While that's somewhat true about Alexander, most of those times he was playing OLB; he wouldn't be as much of a liability against the pass at ILB in my opinion. And while Ninkovich does have certain skills, I can't imagine that he is better in pass coverage than Alexander.

    Re: Lenon to be cut

    Depth at ILB is much less critical than most positions. Unless we happen to have situation players at the position, our #3 ILB rarely ever sees the field. Our #2 ILB is only out there for half the plays. AD is also very capable to move inside.
    I suppose its possible BB has decide to reverse 8 years of acqiring players better suited to a 34, anything is possible, but I don't see it as likely, based on the history.

    Re: Lenon to be cut

    i hope they're bringing in another ILB candidate......the thought of Eric Alexander playing linebacker for this team gives me nightmares.

    i just seem to have an aberational,inexplicable,dislike for this guy.Even typing his name triggers my gag-reflux.

    ......I'm going to therapy,now:eek:

    Re: Lenon to be cut

    that's impossible to surmise from the game since the pats DB's did so poorly they didnt even waste their time with the short routes......I watched the game a couple of times.....I guess it is possible to engineer that opinion, but that's not what I saw

    A positive step towards Ninkovich staying around.

    Re: Lenon to be cut

    I agree. I think that AD at ILB and Ninkovich at OLB is a better combination than Lennon and AD. IMO, Lenon looked real bad Thursday night and him being cut is not at all a surprise. I do expect a significant amount of 4-3 though due to the lack of depth at all LB positions and considering that Burgess hasn't played any OLB.

    Re: Lenon to be cut

    Too bad, I had some hopes for Lenon when they signed him. Wasn't expecting him to be Ray Lewis, but I was hoping he'd be nice depth. Oh well... Pick your logo, Paris, arrowhead or horse, LOL...

    Re: Lenon to be cut

    I assume this perception goes back to the 2006 AFCCG, when he was asked to come in cold and handle Dallas Clark and Fletcher in single coverage, each of whom is basically a WR. Even so, he was only a half-step behind and was victimized by PERFECT throws. I have no idea if Alexander can produce if called upon, but that game did not show that he is terrible in coverage.
