    If you could pick a hole of the current Linebacker situation what would it be?

    Obviously the bigger the more serious (trouble) it is

    Compare it to the following....

    1) A Pin Hole?
    2) A Cheerio Hole?
    3) A Manhole?
    4) A Hole the size of the state of Texas?

    I would pick a Donut hole ... at first it was like a beer mug hole
    but the more i look at it I will go with a donut .. glazed perhaps.

    As of now, we have a Texas size hole at ILB and a manhole (that we hope Woods can fill) at OLB.

    CURRENT
    OLB Vrabel, Thomas, Woods
    ILB Bruschi, Alexander, Izzo
    scrub Slaughter

    I think the reality is
    OLB Vrabel, Thomas, open
    ILB open, open, Bruschi
    ST Izzo, Woods, Alexander (this is an excellent threesome)
    scrub Slaughter

    Like, if a big massive Asteriod plunged into earth, when Teddy Bruschi removes it with his bare hands....that hole.

    Considering that the defense the Pats play is built around playmaking LBs, and we have starting spots that need to be filled, I'd say it is a major one.

    I'm thinking there is an outside chance we sign Lance Briggs. San Fran. just spent $$ on Smith and may want to spend on offense. There has been talk that he may resign with the Bears. I would think that the Pats could offer him a little more then he would settle for with the Bears.

    Briggs played for the Bears and will play for the Bears. He signed a new deal with them today.

    Lance Briggs re-signed with the Chicago Bears for $36 million/6 years.

    At this rate, Colvin may end up back with the Chicago Bears.
