okay playmaker, you are clearly an idiot and are clearly not capable of contributing in this thread or this subject for that matter...

Anybody want to answer my question now, since that idiot doesn't know how to?

Give me names of players who play on the WEAK-SIDE of LBs and STRONG-SIDE of LBs, but since you don't even know what either one of them means there's no point in asking you....I'll wait for someone else.

Is the LOLB strong side when there are tight ends on both sides? Like a Pro set for example? Because then maybe you do know what you're talking about I'm just curious.

well, I was going through this assumig that you ment a specific LB was to be labeled "weak-side LB" the whole year or something, which I do not ever hear...(exp. DeMarcus Ware plays weak-side LB for the Dallas Cowboys, and Anthony Spencer plays strong-side LB)

if there are 2 TEs then the strong side would still be the QB's front I believe...unless like the FB (if they exist) and WRs are all on the QB's left side for that play, then I think that would be seen as the strong side going left...

If the formation is a complete mirror, (like the I-formation, or single-back) with a WR on each side then I think the strong side is still considered the QB's front...


I think there are only like 2 QBs in the NFL that are left handed, although I can't remember which off the top of my head, I do know that Steve Young is considered the greatest left handed QB ever...It is a rarity in the NFL, maybe like a left handed pitcher/hitter or something...

so for the most part the strong side is almost always the right side...

Keith Bullock and DJ Williams are examples of strong side linebackers, but -primetime-/-playmaker- is right with his terminology. Strong side generally equals ROLB.

damn, now I am trying to figure out who is left handed in the NFL, can't find a list...

-Mark Brunell
-Michael Vick
-Matt Leinart
-Chris Simms
-Ken Stabler
-Boomer Esiason
-Steve Young

^^^ those guys are/were lefties

I don't know who is left handed that is starting now though, it may be no one...

no, strong = LOLB, because he is usually facing the QB's strong side

The Linebacker to the QBs right hand is the ROLB/Strong Side, at least it was when I was a linebacker.

no Ware is a ROLB, who pretty much always faces the QB's left side...

you have to look at it from the defense's side of the ball...Ware is on the right side of the defense, but the left side of the offense...

and where is the QB's front? Is the Strong-side on the right side of the field when there are two TEs on each side? Or is the strong-side on the left side of the field? Look at it from a defensive angle, don't look at it from an offensive angle either.

By ROLB, is this from the defensive back view? or offensive back view?
