I am trying to see what others think about the AZ linebackers Corps. What seemed to be one of their potential weaknesses at the start of the season has turned into being one of their biggest assets. Paul Vassallo is a beast, making some great open field tackles and shows some great talent. Derek Earls is involved in almost every single play, has great size and great speed. I noticed in the UCLA game that the other linebacker Jake Fischer, was switching out with Earls on multiple plays in the second half. I've noticed Fischer usually goes out in passing plays (their dime package), but not for the running downs (nickel package) in previous games. It seems like Vassallo and Earls have the running game down compared to the Vassallo and Fishcer combo.
Is it just myself that is noticing that the Earls Vassallo combo is much better off? I have a bad feeling that if the Wildcats keep on putting Fisher in on running players that teams like Sanford and Oregon will make note of it and exploit it.
