TV scouting works for Saints DT Galette
 
1 Attachment(s)
METAIRIE — With a rare opportunity to get an advance look at their next opponent on Sunday afternoon, New Orleans Saints interim coach Aaron Kromer did what anyone else in his position would do: He spent quality time with his family.

Chances for NFL coaches to do that during their noses-to-the-grindstone season are worth far more than whatever might be gleaned from watching the Tampa Bay-Kansas City game.

And anyway, Kromer isn’t much for TV as a scouting tool to begin with.

“I’d rather watch a coach’s tape,” he said Monday, the Saints’ first day back from their bye week. “I like to form my own opinions of what’s happening on the field, so I’d have to shut that off, No. 1, to watch it on TV.

“No. 2, it takes too long. On a coach’s tape, I see what I want to see, run it back and really study it.”

But others watched, particularly defensive end Junior Galette.

“I study everything I can,” he said. “So I like to get a good TV copy, especially a day ahead of everybody else, because that makes it like a bonus day.

“The coach’s tape doesn’t have sound. But with the TV tape, if you listen really close, you can lock in on the cadences. As a pass rusher, it really helps me out a lot.”

But then why don’t coaches use TV tapes?

“They’re not in the game,” Galette said. “We’re the ones who have to be out there.

“It’s amazing how much you can get off TV.”

Galette got brought in to our team for one reason only, something that alot of high draft picks don't even show

A relentless motor

If you watched him in the preseason as a rookie he was sprinting everywhere, all over the field
It's refreshing to see him incorporating spin moves etc to get to the QB

Studying is what separates the winners and the folks that don't win.

Which seldom is really useful for a lineman, you often want a tight shot from the endzone instead.
