    "By necessity, Kevin Burnett started receiving the play calls on the field via headset. The Chargers discovered it was a good move.
    Burnett took over the duties when fellow inside linebacker Stephen Cooper was sidelined the second game of the season with a knee injury. Burnett continued when Cooper came back, because Cooper wasn’t on the field every play. The plan is now for Burnett to remain in the role throughout the season."

    Well, the Cooper debate could possibly be settled.

    IMO Cooper lost his starting job. Burnett has proven that he is a good replacement and seems to be working out well for us. Also next year when Butler gets healthy he should have something to prove. I'm fine with Cooper splitting time with Burnett but if Burnett outplays Cooper, then by all means keep starting Burnett.

    Burnett has impressed and deserves his spot.

    Isn't the debate Siler v Cooper?. For me Burnett is the no. 1 ILB on the sheet. Then it's one of the other 2. Cooper might be smart and a team guy but he doesn't bring the lead like Siler does. Siler (if healthy) and Burnett are my 2 inside. Cooper can play some Special Teams while backing these guys up. I don't see Coop coming back in 2011 esp if Butler gets 100%.
