Now that we're all done (or are we?) rejoicing that Leroy is a Seahawk for more than half a decade (saying it that way really puts things into perspective, doesn't it?), now comes the more difficult task of determining where our linebackers fit.
The easiest decision is putting Lofa at ILB. That's where he excels (as seen in past years) and both Curry and Hill are not ILBs.
So here comes the hard part: Who plays strongside? Hill tore it up his rookie year on the strong side: 7.5 sacks and 72 tackles. Once Julian was signed the next year, Hill played WS LB for 3 years and totaled less sacks (7) than his rookie year, combined.
Curry isn't a pass-rush specialist. He specializes in getting to the ball, tackling hard, and tackling for losses. This is a simplistic and likely laughable analysis to you junkies, but for the most part I think it gets the point across.
So how do you guys think it'll shake out? Does the WS put a damper on too many of Curry's strengths? What's the cost/benefit?
