Default Re: Who plays weak-side and strong-side LBs in the NFL?

the weak side is (in general) is the QB's blind most cases the TE would line up at the right (assuming the QB is right handed), but could line up anywhere...or come with 2 TEs even...

that wiki page doesn't do a good job of explaining it, but like I said, I don't hear that term used much in refference to LBs anyway...

most of the time you just have you best rusher at ROLB and your best pass defender at LOLB
