Shanle

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Also, there are things like, time invested in him in training him for the scheme, and whether they thought they could improve the position in FA. Last year, obviously we needed RBs, badly. Maybe they just couldn't find an equation ...

Also, there are things like, time invested in him in training him for the scheme, and whether they thought they could improve the position in FA. Last year, obviously we needed RBs, badly. Maybe they just couldn't find an equation that worked out to a positive number for SP and GW. I don't know how bad Shanle is or isn't. Greer stood out this year. Jenkins did too -- but less so. Shanle mostly hasn't for the last two -- but I am not as good a observing defensive play as I am offensive play.

The only reason I can come up with why Shanle is still with this team; is the same reason why Les Miles played Jordan Jefferson.

That reason is; I have no freakin clue.

Shanle like Jefferson, does have skill. Both can make great plays. However, when the clutch play needs to be made.... they come up short.

Shanle is getting a lot of hate right now because the winning 49ers TD was thrown right by him. He never made a play for the ball. As we all know it is human nature to blame the person who makes the last screw up. (See the Bartman, CUB's playoff story). Who was at fault for the 9er's loss???? Really, it was the whole team. 5 turn overs, defense as a whole blew donkey that game. But it was Shanle that was seen on TV for the entire Saint Nation to see "Hammering the final nail in the coffin".

How knows, maybe the original post is right. Maybe Spags can show what Shanle is capable of doing. Highly unlikely...but maybe he can do it.
