          Per Mike Fisher, Tavon Austin more serious than what's being reported. Sean Lee limited today and is a 50/50 on playing this Sunday.

            I'm not 100% sure that Vander Esche and Jaylon Smith aren't already better than Lee.

            Now.... I'm not saying that they are. I'm just not certain that they're not.

              They are definitely better in their own way. They are bigger, faster and stronger for sure. They don't have the mental ability of Lee. I'm sure they don't recognize things as quickly as him and they probably don't diagnose plays before the snap the way he does. But I'd be hesitant to take any significant snaps away from our two youngsters. I mean LVE is literally performing better than any of the other rookie LBers I can think of and I expect that to continue. And Jaylon is just a beast all around. I'd rotate Lee in sparingly using him more for his ability to run the defense and line guys up and sort of trying to save him physically as much as possible. No reason to get him hurt again rushing him back to the field and asking him to play a bunch of snaps.

                Smith might be given his explosiveness and ability to blitz but Vander Esch isn't just yet, maybe by the end of the year. I still think Lee comes back and makes a huge impact though.

                Feels pretty awesome to think about those two being a Kuechly/Davis type of pairing for the next 8+ years.

                I guess we don't have to worry about hearing any more Bobby Carpenter comparisons.

                  Yeah I think Austin could be out for awhile. I'm guessing somewhere in the range of 6 games.

                    I really hope we can manage to replace the 15-20 snaps per game that Austin gives us.

                      the mere speculation speaks to the strength.

                          Skins were without two big weapons last week (Crowder and Thompson). I wonder if they'll be back.

                            At this point, no because neither has his read and react ability but one is essentially a second year player getting into his comfort zone and the other is a rook. Give them some time and they might be though.

                              We vastly underused him but his deep speed is legit. And he does really well on the jet sweeps. There were at least two more passes if thrown accurately could have been TDs. We legitimately have no one else with deep speed. I know most on here will laugh at me for it but I'd use Butler as my deep speed guy. He is the only one who can do anything close to taking the top off a defense. And if last year is any indication he and Dak have a pretty good connection. I'd start using a lot of Butler and Gallup on the outside with Beasley on the inside. Thompson runs a nice forty but I haven't seen the ability to separate deep out of him and he doesn't have the ability to climb the ladder like Butler does.
