Football Study Hall on Attack Backers - Coogs profiled under 3-3-5 section

Three methods teams use for choosing linebackers: Method 3, ATTACK!

The more versatile the linebackers, the better this style works and the more possibilities that open up. Charlie Strong utilized this system some at Louisville and he prized athletic linebackers that could blitz, stockpiling as many of them as he could find. Todd Orlando ran this defense at Houston last year and thrived thanks to the versatility of attack-backers Elandon Roberts (142 tackles, 19 tackles for loss, 6 sacks, now a Steeler), Steven Taylor (92 tackles, 18.5 tackles for loss, 10 sacks), and Tyus Bowser (50 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks).

Pretty good article. They did mess up on saying Roberts was now a Steeler (Patriot).
