I understand it. With no offseason for the young guys, it's safer to keep him. But, I hope the young guys step it up in the preseason. Shanle is solid but he's just not a playmaker. One playmaker, like Sharper was two years ago, can be the difference between the Saints going to the Super Bowl again or losing to a scrub like Seattle.

the only thing i can rely on him to do is miss tackles and stale our LB corp up

If the young guns on the team can't beat him out, that means the coaching staff has done a pi#@ poor job of talent evaluation and signed a bunch of guys who couldn't outplay out a slow, aging player. This depresses me.

Well hopefully that will be across the DL.

If he was bad as you say he would've been beaten out for his job by one of the parade of young linebackers by now.

Or maybe it means the coaches (who have recently won a Super Bowl and fielded a top -10 defense, by the way) know just a tiny bit more about Shanle than you or anybody else on this forum.

The hate this guy gets is mind-boggling. I don't love him by any stretch but I almost hope he keeps his starting job just so I can watch half the people on this board lose their minds.
