I'm sorry for doubting your ability and your importance to the defense. I never realized until this preseason that the defense just isn't the same without you. You may be past your prime and not the player you were a couple years ago but dammit, you get the job done! Chase Blackburn is a good special teams player and a servicable backup, but I'm afraid we've seen him exploited multiple times this preseason. Jonathan Goff could develop into a decent Mike Backer, but he may be a year or two away. I've been guilty of trying to replace you this entire offseason, but now i realize that when utilized properly, you're one of the better inside linebackers in the conference. Just do all of us a favor and speak to the media.
