Seriously consider moving Barnett out of the middle and shifting him outside... or do you believe there is another reason he can't get off blocks or tackle with any authority?

I have kept this to my self for a couple of weeks now.. thought maybe the bye week would solve the concerns I have with Nick in the middle. But alas it didn't, if anything it added fuel to my longtime belief that he would make a better outside linebacker than a middle one. And considering some of his performances in the past couple of years.. that is saying alot.

But it once again is clearly evident, if the DT's don't keep him clean, he can't shed the blocks himself. He had a monster year in 07 and a great game against the Vikings.. but for the most part the tackles kept the traffic off him for those games..

I really would like to see what a thumper like Bishop would do in helping the interior rush defense.. we would give up some in flexibility and coverage.. but I would think be a little more stout between the tackles in the running game.

Thoughts?

I think the root of the problem is more the DL than it is Barnett.

But that's not to say it's a bad idea to move Barnett to the outside. But, we'd be hard pressed to find a MLB that would be great without a better DL.

I think Hawk should be the MLB if we are going to stay in this defense (featuring the MLB). I don't think Barnett can handle the responsibility. I think he misses too many tackles and doesn't shed blocks. He is also a hot head. I think Hawk is a real good tackler, and would handle the MLB position well.

I would really like a whole new defensive coordinator hired. I think this defense is loaded with talent, yet we don't get to the quarterback enough, or shut down the run like we should be able to. Ultimately the responsility for an underachieving defense lies with Sanders.

I've been a big Barnett fan his whole NFL career. But I cant help but agree. He hasn't tackled, he doesn't shed the blocks. What do we do? I really don't have any ideas.

He never was a good middle linebacker, this should have been addressed years ago. He can't to through blockers, he can't shed blockers, he doesn't penatrate, he doesn't knock runner backwards, and when the line keeps blockers off him he over runs the play. He is too small for a ML.

I agree he should be moved to the outside. Trouble is it is sort of late in his career. He is a good football player though, just playing out of position.

He still got plenty of speed. More than enough to play Will. I think swapping positions with Hawk (in the offseason, not now) would be a very smart move that would pay off almost immediately.
