But he's better than what we have and at least the front office has finally acknowledged that there is a position on the football field known as the linebacker position. He should be the best we've had since Trotter.
It's a great gamble to be honest. I wouldn't worry about his operation, to be truthful he looked lost in the Texans 3-4 D, and will be much better in the 4-3 D the Eagles run. I got to see Ryans play at Bama and the kid was a freak. I hope he gets to the level I saw him play there.
Not to mention people were saying James Harrison would be slowed by his back surgery and yeah you know the rest.
