    And it shows.....

    Last year when Mike was forced to play ILB with Seau's injury he was almost a non existent factor in many games last year,Now back at his normal position he is playing with the speed and vigor of a 25 year old LB again and is once more a force to be reckoned with from the outside,I expect him to be near or at the top of QB sacks by years end on this team just as he is right now.

    I am happier too...

    Mostly because we actually have an option at ILB if someone gets dinged up. Even in the SD game Bruschi hardly took any snaps but the defense didn't miss a beat, an actual real ILB fileld in (Seau) and the team kept rolling. The last couple of years when Bruschi and or Seau missed time the entire LB core had to shuffle around.
