There have been a lot of threads on this so I don't want to speculate. All I want to do is show the statistical analysis to help elucidate arguments.
COACH RODRIGUEZ: I'm excited about Greg Robinson taking over the linebackers. I think he probably prefers that position since he's coached that the majority of his career, whether it's in college or the NFL.”

What this is trying to explain is that GERG might actually be a decent LB coach. No other justifications. You either believe his credentials or don’t. However, I think that given time, our LB play might actually be good. The one I want to single out (especially because everyone’s been clamoring about this) is Demens.
Here is my comparison of Demens and Ezeh:
Kenny Demens now has 19 tackles. Obi Ezeh: 39 (through 10/16, not sure if before or after the game). That's about 1/2 the tackles in about 1/6 or less the PT.
The UFR on Obi/Demens through 6 games this season:
*I might be wrong on Demens’ playing time. I tried my best, but he might have snuck in on a few plays here or there, which I did not notice.
UConn: Ezeh: -3.5
ND: Ezeh: +3
Umass: Ezeh: -8
BGSU: Ezeh: +2
Demens: 6 plays at the end of the game from what I can tell
Indiana: Ezeh +3
From what I could tell Demens only plays goal line.
MSU: Ezeh: -4.5
I believe only goal line again.
Total: Ezeh -8
Demens: +3 in limited action.
This is post is more to give us some stats on how well he’s doing compared to Obi with which we can quantify our thoughts. Analysis instead of intuition. I hope this helps any and all arguments.
