Fletcher or Mcintosh replacement

Postby PickSixerTWSS » Sat Oct 01, 2011 1:06 pm

First off let me say both of these guys r good players and fletcher at 37 is still a top 5 middle linebacker however i believe we will be picking with the 17th pick or so and fletcher is 37 and a free agent next year so 3 great middle line backers we could get in the 2012 draft are vontaze burfict, luke kuechly, and manti te'o. that would be amazing. :lol:

At this point in our season it's a little early to forecast our needs for the next draft. But...I'd go on the offensive side of the ball with a QB and then on the defensive side with a CB.

Linebackers can be found all over the draft. Fletcher was undrafted. Unless there is a Patrick Willis or Brian Urlacher type player in the draft, I don't see a reason to take one really high.

At the end of the 1st quarter of the season Patrick Willis and Brian Urlacher are tied at 28th in tackles with 28 each and no sacks. Patrick Willis is 26 and Brian Urlacher is almost 34. McIntosh is only 28, has 27 tackles and a sack. They already have a "Patrick Willis or Brian Urlacher type" ... and almost let him leave.

We could also blow the rest of the season for a shot at Luck.

i don't see us grabbing a CB with Hall and Wilson theres not really a need. 1.QB/2.OL or OL/Qb dpendin on draft position.

Nothing wrong wit looking towards the future, it'll have to be done eventually but I think Fletcher will come back next year. I honestly believe he'll play out his career here and despite his age he still has plenty of gas left in the tank.

Urlacher also has a couple of picks and a fumble recovery return for a TD. :shock:

Disagree. Haslett is very aggressive. For some of the stuff he does, he would like to know that he can take away the opponent's #1 for 4 seconds. We don't currently have a corner that can do that, so, yes, there IS a need...

My list of priorities, which is completely dependent upon best available:
1. Quarterback of the future
2. O line OR Cornerback who can reliably take away a receiver when needed (such as a true Zero Blitz).

If he'd been willing to accept what he was actually worth, this would have been Carlos Rogers role. Had he been on the field against the Cowboys, he'd have been man up on Bryant... and that pass would probably have fallen to the ground. Say what you want, but he's not peeking into the backfield... and he doesn't bite on that weak headfake. You don't need an interception in that case... just a pass defensed.
