A speed rusher LB

Now our pass rush was quite good this year, yet the thing is, this was all done by the D-Line. Suh, Avril, Lojack, McBride, these were the guys racking up sacks. None of our Linebackers. Wanna know how many total sacks our Linebackers manged this year? 2. Yah, TWO!

Once again, props to the D-line for pressuring the QB all by themselves. I'm just here to say, in order to take this Defense to the next level, we need a Passing rushing Linebacker, whether in Free Agency or the Draft. Can you imagine? You try protecting your QB with Suh and Williams in the middle, Avril and Lojack on the outside and yet another pass rusher coming from the right or left. Opposing O-lines have enough trouble with Suh!

I do not think we need a leader at Linebacker. Deandre Levy is the future there. I want someone to replace Julian Peterson, someone who can get to the QB and quickly. Someone who on their way to the QB can tackle the RB if necessary. Let Landon Johnson, Ashlee Palmer, and Bobby Carpenter compete for the other spot. GET ME A PASS RUSHER!

This defense is so close to being a contender. Give me that LB and a play maker or shutdown corner. I'm getting way to excited just thinking of how close we are.

What are your ideas? Are there some good LB's in FA that can get to the QB or should we look for that in the draft?

Go Lions!!
