    Also, do you know who the D coordinator was in 1999?

    Hint: Not Dick LeBeau

    How else will we know how good our youth is if we only see them for 2 or 3 plays a game. Practice can only show coaches so much. I would like to see Sly subbed in for Foote so we can see him get some real PT. With Woodley out I think we will really get a good look at Worlids. I think we draft Safety and possibly a stud ILB (depending on if Sly comes around) in the first 2 rounds this year.

    Any chance Tomlin's draft choices have been made with an eye toward shifting to a 4-3 once DL retires, which should hopefully be after this season? Would Hood, Heyward, McLendon, Ta'amu be better suited as 4-3 DL? Would Timmons, Worilds, Spence, Woodley, Sylvester be better suited for the 4-3?

    Not trying to say this is the case....just asking if it could be the case and some of those players would have a better showing in the 4-3 with the responsibilities of the 4-3 vs. the 3-4.
