Seems like we've got ourselves a storyline for Toronto. So, lets hear your thoughts. Who should start? They can't both start. And we're not switching to a 3-4 with our deadly front 4, especially not mid-season. Neither can play outside linebacker. So all of those answers are out. What do you guys think?
Personally, I liked Fells. He had a bigger pre-season than Wickman, and many think he earned the job right there. He had a solid game against Montreal with 2 fumble recoveries, one for a TD, and a forced fumble. Not sure how many tackles he picked up. He seems a little speedier, and is a more rounded backer than Wick. Face it, Wickman isn't the greatest in coverage or pass rush. Definately a run-oriented backer. But Wickman is adept at leading the front 7 and reading plays and formations. Fells is still a little weak in that department. That's something that could get better over time though, but I don't know if he'll get to Wickman's level. Wickman is also a better run-stopper IMO.
Overall: Fells. Its his job to lose now. He earned a spot on the field. Give it to him, and see how he handles it. If he stinks it up for a couple of games, try Wickman again.
