Round and Round They Go

I swear to God that I was planning on writing a post for today titled "The Optimist's Guide to the 2012 Eagles." Heavens knows I've been critical all offseason.

But then we heard the music from Linebacker Musical Chairsstart up once more:

Asked if he still considers himself a three-down linebacker, which is what the Eagles heralded Ryans as when they traded for him, Ryans said: "I am."

But will he be a three-down linebacker on Sunday?

"That's the coaches' decision. I don't decide who goes out on the field," Ryans said.

Apparently Jamar Chaney and Mychael Kendricks took first team reps at nickel. For more, see my post from July on Ryans not necessarily being the three-down linebacker we expected.
