...and how do you think the ILB position responds after his departure? Moving Thomas back to his old OLB spot will surely involve him in more QB pressures and blitz packages but what becomes of ILB? His play at the inside was undeniable, he covered well (westbrook), he sheds blocks well and he can tackle well (only if at times he seems to stumble). Our OLB position can seemingly stay the same and apply the same type of pressure and force. Vrabel is having an all-pro season and Thomas has just as much versatility and strength as Colvin did. But who rotates in with Seau and Bruschi? Is it EA? or is it Pierre Woods? First reaction leads you to believe that EA is the better fit since hes had more snaps on the inside then Woods. On the other hand Woods is bigger and stronger and fits the size of an ILB that belichick covers. A 6'5'' 240+ lb player that has the ability to play well. Your thoughts?
