Suppose we bench Joey Porter for Buffalo and get him all fired up for Brady and Vollmer and the Pats (and more importantly let him rest his 30something body) ala Pedro Martinez in the MLB playoffs.
Then bench him for Jacksonville and get him fired up (and well rested) for pursuing Vince Young.
Then bench him for Houston and get him fired up (and more importantly, well-rested) for Big Ben and the shaky Steeler O-Line.
We have enough quality depth at OLB to get the job done, why not be smart when using our personnel?
What do you think?
