Mike Mckenzie Cut

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I may get called down for this but every since MM came back our tackling has gotten sloppy. I can't say it's his fault, but every one tries to bump the ball carrier down instead of wrapping up the ball ...

I may get called down for this but every since MM came back our tackling has gotten sloppy. I can't say it's his fault, but every one tries to bump the ball carrier down instead of wrapping up the ball carrier. I've never like the way he tackled and it seems to have rubbed off on the team. I like MM and wish him well, he was just a little older and slower this time around.

You won't get called down from me. Other than the New England game, he was a non-factor. The tackling, or the lack thereof, was horrendous in the Tampa game. He gave it a good effort in his time back with the Saints, but it just wasn't good enough.

No, he'll be back on the roster for the first PO game.

Is that why hartley screwed the pooch against the bucs? Carney was feeding him misinformation.

Re: Mike Mckenzie Cut

I don't like this, and only because we are so thin at CB right now. I agree on the tackling, but from what I understand this isn't the easiest defense to learn, so he's got at least what, five weeks of experience, where as these new guys have NONE. I hope they resign him after the Panthers game. All these player moves, right before the play offs, has got me a little concerned.
