    Reading Reiss, he says a reason Beisel will do better is because he will
    play the "Will" LB position. Isn't Will an OLB position even in the 3-4?

    Certainly playing next to Bruschi will help whatever his role inside.

    Disable Jersey

    I thought I ran across a reference to a "Mo" linebacker.

    Yes, that would be a "Ruling Inside Linebacker"!

    I don't know about that

    Sam and Will are mnemonics for Strong and Weak
    and stong is tied to the TE side of the line
    It doesn't seem like you'd call an inside LB a weak LB unless you
    got two Wills and two Sams lined up Like

    Sam(olb) S(ilb) W(ilb) W(olb)

    where the two Sams are closest to the TE position.

    But two Sams and two Wills would be confusing.

    on One Google search I get a coach labeling as follows

    Strongside OLB: Sam
    Strongisde ILB: Mike
    Weakside ILB: Mac
    Weakside OLB: Will

    So I guess it comes down to the terminology that Belichick wants to use.
    good question for one of his PCs.

    You can't get just any Tom, Dick or Harry to play these positions.

    4-3
    Sam - strong outside
    Mike - middle
    Will - weak outside

    3-4
    Sam - strong outside
    Mike - strong inside
    Will - weak inside
    Jack - weak outside
