    @toddarcher Ernie Sims says he's starting at weak side linebacker this week. Been taking first team snaps over Bruce Carter

    Whoever decided the scheme change would fit our current players needs to be fired immediately.

    Bruce Carter was supposed to be the new Derrick Brooks and now he's benched for a scrub we picked up off the street? What a disaster.

    It's still early but Lee and Carter sure look to be much better in the 3-4 than in the 4-3. I'll give them a year before calling it a huge mistake.

    Sheesh. Settle down. This is probably a move for the DEN game only.

    Probably just for the first snap or series.

    The HC is sending a message to the team. But it's not perceived that way because... well we lost last week and everything is doom and gloom.

    Pretty much, everything is taken to the extreams. In the past fans screamed about accountabilty and now that it is being shown some of the same now complain about that. If I did not know better I think some just like complaining, it makes them happy

    I'm not in the front office, but I thought for sure that it would be a good thing. I still think it can be...its only been 4 games.

    The decision making on this team is simply incredulous

    hop off the fence buddy. you're straddling it a little too hard. this is a kid we had high hopes for. along with claiborne. two of our young guns are struggling in a new scheme. this is not good.

    We're saying he's not good enough to start against the best team in the league.

    What does that say about our scheme? What does that say about Bruce Carter?

    There's no way to spin this as a good thing.

    Carter is a good player with huge upside.
    But he is very inexperienced and has been exposed in certain aspects of defending the passing game as it applies to this specific defense.
    With Denver coming into town, you can see why they might do this. He'll still get plenty of reps and will evenutally be outstanding.

    If they ever read this board, they probably are. :)

    I didn't say it was a good thing. He's obviously deemed to be a liability in coverage this week. I said the people calling for the firing of the people involved with the scheme and the firing of the general manger over something like this ought to settle down a bit.

    I don't think you know what 'straddling' means, Zordon. At least, you keep using it in a context that doesn't make sense. Yes, it's not good that Carter's benched. I think it goes without saying that we all understand that getting benched, even for a single game, is not a good thing. But for the sake of clarification, it's definitely not.
