Scott Shanle's positive memories with New Orleans Saints will outweigh 'difficult' 2012 season

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Shanle can already see the writing on the wall. He's been inactive for eight of the last nine games, despite being fully healthy. Time to say Good Bye. Thanks Scott ! Good luck in the future....

He was below average when he came and he is below average when he is leaving. Sorry if I don't care to give him a hug for being a "nice guy"!

He was paid 4 million over the last 2 years to produce.... never produced.

He had no bigger role in the Super Bowl winning than did the water boys.

As far as for how bad our line backers were before Shanle.

Jackson, Mills, Swilling....

Sorry, but that was over 20 years ago. This is who Shanle, Fujita and Vilma replaced:

Sedrick Hodge, Ronald McKinnon, and Colby Bockwoldt. Of course we also had the "outstanding" T.J. Slaughter, Terrence Melton, and Courtney Watson. I would take Scott Shanle over any of them even now.

He was far better than anything we had at the time when he came.

Maybe. I'm sure it could be debated. Me personally, I have never liked him. He was always slow and he could never cover and he could never shed a block. His tackling was always meh.

Stats don't always tell the story but in Shanle's case it does. He hasn't done anything noteworthy.

A lot of fans fall in love with players. I don't understand the love for this guy. It's not like he ever did anything great and is just declining as he gets older.

You can go back and find thread after thread 8+ pages on Hartley and most are ready to send him away. Will we see this same kind of thread for him? At least he did actually contribute.

Well, I trust the judgement of the players on the field with him more than that of a fellow fan. You are aware of the fact that Shanle was voted by fellow Saints players as the Defensive MVP for the 2008 season, right?

hate the guy on the field... absolutely awful player because he wasn't athletic enough. I do think he was one of the most classy players we had and actually would like to see him as a coach. He always seemed to be a smart player but couldn't translate it to being great on the field.

His best years with the Saints were coming in as a backup behind Scott Fujita, thats where he made his mark, he's not a starter in this league.... They had no one better on or off the field, now that is not the case.
