OLB's - A sad day

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I saw this elsewhere and had to recheck... Lofton - 9 tackles Shanle - 1 tackle Herring - 1 tackle Cadet - 1 tackle Congrats... Our outside LB's had as many tackles as our 5th string RB....

Is "outside" what the O stands for?

Shanle was beaten all day, he looked aweful. Can't even call him average.

I wonder... Can a player lose a step he never really had to begin with?

Our defense is like the Maginot Line except you don't even have to go around it.

The very least we can expect him to do is take someone with him when he trips.

If I were Spags whatever game plan I was leaning towards this week I would do the exact opposite.

Re: OLB's - A sad day

Maybe we can convince San Diego to play 9 on offense so we can leave our already nonexistent OLB's off the field. Complete wastes of space. Or, maybe roll Cadet over to WOLB? We'd be getting the same productivity...

Plus it doesn't help the OLB that the D Line sucks so bad, although Lofton is still managing.

If they ever erect a statue of Shanle, it will be of him laying on his face with one-armed outstretched as the opponent runs past.
