"Eagle" Defense (2-5-4)

"Watching" the Lions manhandle us last night, with our gang of so-so linebackers and cardboard cutouts at DE made me think back to Fritz Shurmur's "Eagle" defense for the LA Rams back around 1990. He played a 2-5 with a "nosebacker" position. 

So, what about Rogers & Ruybin on the DL (no one else worth starting) then a left-to-right LB corps of

Gocong-Jackson-Veikune-Fujita-Roth

Bowens backing up Veikune, Maiva backing ILB & Benard backing OLB.

Of course the caveat is the Rams back then had enough quality at LB to field two starting four man units. They were also sorely lacking at DL. Just a thought, like!
