Some we have won and some we haven't, so the guy must be doing something right/better.

Shanle is a good player, but he's not a spectacular player, so when he whiffs everybody wants to bring him down. I like him, and none of our hot shots have been able to displace him either.

I have to say Shanle is quietly doing well of late.

I mean he isn't fast, he isn't a lights out LB but he has come on lately and doing an ok job.

Shanle can tackle, maybe,just maybe he is rubbing off on the rest of the defense.

Since his inception into the NFL, which is 2003, he has 7.5 sacks and 2 int.

7.5!!! In 9 yrs???? Sadly, 4 of them came in the first year he played with us.

2 picks!!!! 2......but he is doing better...BAAAAH!!! He is crap, sorry if that offends someone.

Need we say more about #58? SO you know i'm not making this stuff up, see for yourself and then come back and tell me he is even a mediocre LB. http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/stats/...9/scott-shanle

Shanle doesn't have the best talent in the world, but he is a hard worker who gives lots of effort. Believe me, if there is a better option available, that person would be starting. So far the Saints have not found that guy.

True, and sad. What it means is that Shanle is at worst our 3rd best linebacker.

Hopefully Martez and Bussey develop and nudge him out of the top 3 next year.

Boy, did the Herring experiment fail miserably or what? He was supposed to be the guy to edge out Shanle and I'm thinking he may be the worst LB on our roster right now. And there were several veteran options last year that we ignored.
