We will need a strong defensive game plan this week to mask the unathleticism we have at linebacker. Tomlinson out of the backfield and Gates are going to pose serious problems for our linebackers. Bruschi and Vrabel are smart players who have always gotten the job done when it comes down to it but they are slow as Molasses. Either one of them one on one with Gates or Tomlinson spells trouble. We have gotten away with not drafting athletic linebackers the past few years, hopefully that will continue this week but it is going to be tough.
