    Can Chung replace AT?

    There have been some discusion of AT been done, I was thinking what this would mean for the LBs.  I kind of like the idea of putting Chung into a hybrid role.  He's a baller even though he's a rookie and has been caught out of possition he IMOP is an upgrade over AT right now.

    At 5'11" 210lbs he doesn't have the size to hold the edge. teams would run at him all day.

    Personally I like Chung and think he'll be a force for opposing teams in the future. I agree with your accessment that he is too small to protect the edge. I do like the idea of his becoming a hybrid such as Tank Williams was proposed to become.

    sonie, I agree he has the ability to become a "hybrid" safety/LBer but he wouldn't stand a chance at OLBer fulltime. Now a creative DC would use him in the nickel and blitz him from all over but we don't have that.

    I posted this same thing on another thread, except I was saying to use him in place of Burgess (this was before AD decided to be a baby).  I think he should be the rusher in obvious pass situations, but might have a problem against the run.

    ~A better question would have been: "Wouldn't it be awesome if our barely-tested rookie replaced the veteran strongside outside linebacker in a complex defense, held the outside rush lane like a wall against multiple O-lineman coming towards him in a 3-4 D, using that five foot-eleven frame to shore up our pass rush by single-handedly barreling over mamouth offensive tackles on blitz schemes, all women looked like pornstars, I had mental telepathy and I was the only man on earth."

    Why not just go back to the 4 3 lineup?  Start Burgess as a lineman and move Guyton to OLB.  He is fast and can set the edge

    Chung could possibly replace AT as the team idiot if he developed a bad attitude. Other than that he's sort of dwarf compared to what we need for a linebacker.I'm sure BB has plans but we're going to have to wait and see.

    Chung could certainly provide some value replacing Rodney as an "in the box" safety, playing closer to the line of scrimmage, but he doesn't have the size needed to be a 3-4 OLB.

    Let's see him crack the starting lineup first.

    Harley, thanks for the reply. it would not come as a surprise to see Jr Seau playing the middle this week with AD not activated and Guyton playing outside(???). Neither would it surprise me that Burress be benched and Mike Wright or J Green taking over his spot. At least he was man enough to step up and accept that it was his fault not BB's for his being sent home.

    Chung can land some nasty hits so I think he'll be good in the future, but he's still young just needs a bit more time.

    Chung stinks. A disastrous pick as our first rookie in a draft which we had total control going in with all those picks. He was not highly rated coming out and is horrible in coverage. Experience will not change that fact.
