Pollack, Thurman, and Brooks were all LB's. Geathers was a 6th round pick and a lucky hit.
Marvin refuses to upgrade the most important position on his defense and I have no clear idea why.
totally agree, if linebackers are making tackles on runningbacks, they have already gained 5 yards. To not even try and move up in the draft, or get a free agent signing is horrible. The front four is responsible for the pass rush and making tackles on runningbacks before they gain over 3 yards. Teams will continue to pass for over 300 yards and gain 120 on the ground until this problem is addressed.
