What's your ideal defensive lineup? Give reason for replacing starters


Up front:
Allen Johnson Ferguson Hunter

I think Rasco needs to be second string. I just don't see this guy making any plays and he just seems way too big to a typical DE for LSU. Allen has the white boy motor and at least Hunter has some speed. I'm fine with Johnson and Ferguson.

LBrs:
Alexander Louis (Beckwith) Barrow

I still can't believe Welter is on the field. Dude doesn't make any plays, takes bad angles constantly, and is never in position. Alexander is out best LBr by far and Barrow continues to be consistent for the most part. Louis needs to be starting and I'd really enjoy seeing Beckwith spell him. We just need to get athleticism back on the field.

Secondary:
Mills Loston Martin (Thompson) White (Robinson)

Mills, Loston, and Martin I'm fine with seeing regular playing time. But Collins..man. I don't know who's in position less, he or Welter. Dude is clueless on ball placement and got us killed right before end of the first half. I know they put him in because Whites so new still, but now that were about to face some less than intimidating offenses, it's time for White and Robinson to see major PT. I would like to see Thompson on the field way more as well.


TL;DR - it's time for new guys to see the field. Heading to Miss State and Florida at home, these offenses don't scare me. Throw them in there and learn the calls under fire. I'll take athleticism over experience any day. We looked completely lost and un-usually slow in many cases. If we get this under control quickly over the next couple weeks, we could roll down the stretch right on down to Atlanta the way this offense is playing.

re: What's your ideal defensive lineup? Give reason for replacing starters


Same as it was yesterday except...

Replace Welter at MLB with Beckwith
Replace Martin at S with Thompson
Replace Hunter at DE with Allen

I think the 2-deep on the DL should be...
Rasco/Bower
Ego/LaCouture
Freak/Thomas
Allen/Hunter

I think the LB 2-deep should be...
Barrow/D. Jones
Beckwith/Louis
Alexander/T. Jones

I think we need to try more rotating in the secondary...

Mills/White start at CB, Robinson and Eugene nickel/dime guys

Thompson/Loston start at S, work in Jefferson/Martin/Sandolph more

Agree with everything but the secondary and MLB.

We should move Barrow to the middle with Beckwith getting a ton of time as well. OLB is Kwon and Debo. Plainly because these guys just have it in my opinion. Kwon is by far our best LB.

Secondary is White, Eugene/Martin, unfortunately Loston, and Robinson. Mills should exclusively be the nickel. I like Dwanye Thomas as the dime. Loston is a huge problem but he won't get benched because he's a senior. Awful angles for 2 years now and can't cover. You know what? Frick it get Jefferson some time too. The staff was raving about him this past off season.

Just please put the best athletes on the filed for the next games and give them a chance to gel.

Dline- freak has me pissed because because he should be much better be he is still best option. At de we need to start rotating in the young guys bower and Neal until two guys show the ability to get pressure on the qb.

Lb- welter should not be on the field. He has no upside. Take your lumps and get the best athletes on the field. Would love to see beckwith step in and grow into the position. Barrow is find and Kwan is best on the filed.


Secondary- start rotating in all these young guys and get experience.

I'd rather have a frightening looking scarecrow in the middle of the field than welter.

I still believe this is a function of what they're asking him to do because neither he nor Ego are being allowed to attack in the middle. If these are truly the best defensive linemen, move them around bring LaCouture to the middle and put Ferguson on the left or right side. We really need to try different things along the line instead of allowing the opposing o-line to know exactly where they will be lined up.
