If a Co-Worker was giving me all of his sales and not trying to get any I would vote his azz Team player of the year too.
Not Team player of the year ... Most Valuable Player. Big difference.

i would agree we need to upgrade him. But we also need a better defensive end too, we have to blitz the house most of the time to get pressure on anyone.

And while that MVP vote may be true.... I have a hard time..make that an impossible time believing that the loss of Vilma or Sharper (Which we have fully educated on the absence of his impact this season) would be a lesser impact that is Shanle were absent from a game.

I have played the game, I have watched the game, I understand the game..... No one should be standing 2 feet from a tackle watching it. Especially when our QB is delivering blows on interceptions.

Shanle has heart! That's what I like about him and that's what's works with his limited speed. Sure, I wish he could knock 4 seconds off his 9.3 40 but he doesn't have the bone structure to make that happen. If speed to the ball is more important than leverage, for me it is, then we need an upgrade to take some of the pressure off of Vilma. A pass rush would also come in handy.

Exactly and the Will is all about speed.

if the pick up is on the team meaning he passed a physical and is ready for play he can cause some destruction on blitz packages sooner than learning all the de plays. i rememember the guy now, he was a speed rushing lb.

If Shanle is so bad, why hasn't ANYONE beaten him out of his starting position?

Well until next year when Casillas returns from the I.R. or we find another replacement in the off-season, Shanle is who we have.
