Well Nors I glad you can predict the future so well. I would like your advice in the stock market yada.
I don't think we can do more than hope Ware, Burnett and all do as well as we all hope. It's a mistake to think that every rookie is going to start IMO. If most of them contribute some much less a lot then I'll be happy.
I wouldn't cut Singleton yet either. Better wait and see how the rest of the LB corps works out. Singleton has more experience than any of the others and while I bemoan the lack of big plays he does steadily go about his job. Could he be cut? Sure. Will he? I doubt it with only two regulars returning and James being still an unknown.
The rest are learning. BooBoo at OLB? Give me a break. If he can do that my hats off to him. And he has much more experience than a certain player from a Div II school and Thorton who played how much last year?
Burnett has the best chance of being a regular. Ware will likely start out as a situational player and go from there. If he's all world this year then great but I wouldn't bet on it right now.
