Out of all the position groups, I was most impressed with the inside LB's.
Pikula didn't play much, but was outstanding when he got on the field and
also looked like a great verbal leader out there. Stout, Heder, and
Leauta-Douyere (no idea if I spelled that right) played like studs yesterday.The one thing that makes me cautiously optimistic is that almost all the
other positions were missing their starters, so it should be expected that the
top MLB's would dominate. The top RB's were out, Mitch and Ross were
out, a few of the main OL were out, etc.I love what Zac Stout is
doing and it's a great story to see him come back. I think he will start
alongside Pikula with Heder and JLD backing them up, forming a solid two-deep of
MLB's this year.
