If Fisher is as good of coach as he thinks he is, this shouldn't be a problem.
I think he's right
They can still get some from the almighty SEC.
Similar to how we blame TX HS football for lack of hand-in-ground OL, TE, and overall DT/MLB depth relative to the skill positions.
Deal with it.
Add FB to the list of positions hit by football evolution.
If they widen the field to CFL standards like they have discussed this problem will solve itself.
By eliminating the position altogether?
Just a few off the top of my head but there are plenty of quality MLBs coming out of college.
Today's NFL is a QB driven league so I think speedy LBs are more valuable than a plodding MLB. Today, you need a franchise QB to get to the Superbowl. If you're stuck with a Matt Schaub, your only other shot is have a defense that can shut down the Tom Bradys. So if you have linebackers that can run with WRs, you can make any QBs life miserable.
Irony of his comments are that the NFL is passing more than ever and eliminating the need for big run-stopping MLBs. It was not CFb, but the NFL rules committee that changed the game. Wrs get touched less. QBs get hit less. It has all made passing the preferred vehicle of offense. His commens make me wonder if he has become out-dated, not MLBs.
