Default Clowney at Spur or MLB

Use to think playing clowney at mlb was a dumb idea. But after the uga game. It maybe the perfect idea. He has the speed, knowledge and the offense couldn't run from the side he is on. Run a 3-4 and when they need heavy pass rush audible to a 4-3. That's how he was used in high school at times. Unless Sutton turns in to Ingram or Taylor in a week. We will see other offenses abuse the side clowney not on all year long.

I don't see a problem with it. He can do everything physically to play the spur and would more than likely be dominate there. I like the 3-4 idea, atleast sometimes. Clowney at LB is kinda scary. Then he can put his hand down when we switch fronts. He should be coming from everywhere!

The guy is the best pass rusher in college football. Why you would want to put him at MLB or Spur where he would play significantly less snaps rushing the QB is beyond me. Move him around within the line is a good idea but do not put a 275 pound man at Spur midseason when he has never played the position and ask him to cover WRs/RBs instead of rush the QB like he does best.

Clowney shouldn't have to play musical chairs. He's an end. The other guys on the field need to stiffen up and get some attitude

You all seem so surprised that Georgia was able to run the ball on us. I can't seem to figure out why. One of the crucial parts of being able to stop the run is having good linebacker play.

I imagine the talk of moving Clowney to LB was used in that thought. He would improve our LB play (simply because of experience and talent) but that's as far as the credit goes in this thread.

Clowney is at his best with his hand on the ground. He hasn't put up the statistics this year (so far - remember we're only 2 games in) and people are jumping ship. What? Clowney has had a total of 2 solo tackles and 2 sack in the first 2 games in 2011 and a total of 2 solo tackles and 1 sack in the first 2 games in 2012. What's so different so far?

Let's not freak out over 1 loss. It's not like we lost to a bad team.

I don't want to make folks mad, because I know its touchy right now. so, don't take this wrong. he doesn't have the tools to play linebacker in college football. he has all the physical tools, not the mental ones.

guys, the middle LB is the leader of the defense, and is most always the guy changing the plays at the line. he's responsible for communicating to the other defenders, and getting them in position.

he doesn't have enough knowledge of the entire defensive playbook, the leadership skills, and maybe not a big enough gas tank. the gas tank I don't know, but he looked pooped yesterday to me. if so, he will not last a game a middle lb. way more chasing the play there, than at DE.

HE'S IN THE BEST POSITION. as said, you don't take your best pass rusher away from the line.

No offense OP, but absolutely no. However, the coaches need to figure out something so he can make plays. He was hardly moved around yesterday at all. Also, when he was constantly double teamed, no one else on the line stepped up to make a play. Not taking anything away from Georgia, but you can't tell me that their line is that good. Clemson's DL made them look silly.

It is put up or shut up time now. I know Clowney is frustrated, but he just needs to shutup and play. He knew he would be doubled and chipped like crazy and it is something he is just going to have to play through.

He is obviously our best pass rusher and he needs to stay on the line. Move him around the line if you need to, but taking him out of pass-rushing duties would not be good. I saw him drop into coverage once last night and it just didn't work. Sutton and the other guys on the line need to win their battles and get pressure on the QB. about the only way Clowney will get sacks right now is if the Oline just flat out forgets to double team him.

I think the biggest issue is that Sutton is doing absolutely nothing on the opposite side. He got shut down by a freshman against UNC and a bad OT from UGA that got lit up by clemson

A team isn't one player. All I heard about was how Chaz Sutton would be as good as Clowney at left DE. Missing Devon yet? We might could move Clowney to DT, but then who will stop the.runs around that end? Georgia ran right and right up the middle. The other guys have.to step up.
