I say if managment got us a super bowl there must be a method to the madness, Arnoux and Cassillias should get a shot at holding down olb spots, Arnoux on film looks like Cato June to me, good coverage skills and range solid tackler hope his injury heals and he rehabed(s) well.

Re: Loomis may stand pat at LB

I am up in the air on what they should do. We need a dt, de, lb, Safety and a qb. The problem is I dont know the way they should go. Sharper can take care of the Safety Position but the rest needs help bad. If we lose Hargrove weare in big trouble.

Yes, perhaps draft a rookie LB and let him, Arnoux and Casillas battle for the job. Need to get younger, not older, at the LB position.

I want the Saints brass to inquire about Umenyoira. The guy fell out of favor in NY and I think that he'd do well in Grants old spot.

Osi would cost to much, Hes a beast but I'm not to fond of throwing 1st rd picks around, if he could be had for say a 2 and next years 2 then Make it happen Loomis, if not let the scouting dept earn their money

Re: Loomis may stand pat at LB

SLB - Shanle, maybe Arnoux or Dunbar
MLB - Vilma, Mitchell, Dunbar
WLB - Casillas, Arnoux, Dunbar

I think we seriously need to add another speedy WLB, and probably another solid SLB. Other than Shanle, no one we have has proven to be anything more than promising.

Add some more high quality competition to the mix and we'll be fine.

Re: Loomis may stand pat at LB

What about Antonio Pierce? Has he already signed with another team? I know he was involved with that whole Plaxico thing, but he wasn't charged with anything.

i know they arent as talented, but casillas and arnoux both ran in the 4.5s i believe

in fact.......somewhere i remember casillas was clocked in at just under 4.5 in the 40

we have some speed and we have some power.....we just need a LB who can combine both of them

Re: Loomis may stand pat at LB

Shanle has proven, that he's too damn slow. SPEED, SPEED, SPEED, is what we need. How many times did we get burned by TE's this past year. Think about it. Shanle's a quality backup, but has to be upgraded.

Re: Loomis may stand pat at LB

We need upgrades now. Casillas and Arnoux are nice players, but little top level experience. They need another year in the system and some meaningful reps before letting them loose. Bring in Bullock, pay him money, get him a ring.
