JJT of DMN tells us something we already know, that a team can never have enough linebackers in a 3-4 defense. Parcells, over the last three years, has stockpiled this postion like no other. While nosetackles are very important, it's the linebackers in a 3-4 who are the playmakers.
As long as Parcells is the head coach of the Cowboys, he will acquire linebackers every year either through the draft or free agency to man his 3-4 defense. This year we drafted Bobby Carpenter in the first round who might be ready to push Ayodele by mid season.
That's not a problem for Parcells, who wants to be able to mix and match his linebackers based on down-and-distance situations.
The Cowboys are really loaded at LB right now and hopefully all that talent will result in many big plays for the Cowboys defense this season.
Update [2006-8-25 10:51:9 by Grizz]: Terry jumped on the article I was going to post, so I'll tack on one more quote from the article, it's from Bradie James on Bobby Carpenter.
