Re: Spags Released

From the NOLA article:

Linebacker Scott Shanle said he has no problem saying it was the right decision.

"It's better to make a change than not make a change. ... I'm being brutally honest in that there absolutely were issues with the scheme," Shanle said. "Guys no matter how many years they played, there were things I was being told to do in this scheme that I've never heard of, and I've played for four different defensive coordinators."

Yeah, Shanle was probably told to actually play like he belonged on the field... explains why we didn't see him on the field during the latter half of the season. And anyway, why is he commenting on this like it was something that affected him... his playing days in New Orleans are over!

Re: Spags Released

Most mock drafts I've seen have Mingo going top 10, think we have a realistic shot at him?

Exactly!

Did Romeus play any 3-4 DE or OLB during his time at Pitt? I ask this because I don't follow any College football, and I'm too tired to start an internet search on the topic.

Don't confuse physical talent with knowledge of the game.

By all accounts Shanle is a very smart player and will likely be a very successful coach one day.

I totally respect his opinion on X's and O's. Too bad he's about as physically gifted as a punter.

I've seen him blow too many assignments and drag the players around him down for too long to have any respect for him at the moment... but maybe that'll change once he's no longer "our" problem.

Re: Spags Released

it could be that Sean had a lot of time to do research and found that teams that run the 3-4 include the Green Bay Packers, Baltimore Ravens, Indianapolis Colts, San Francisco 49ers, Washington Redskins, and Houston Texans. That is half of the playoff teams, to include the two super bowl contenders.

He was voted a team captain and defensive MVP by the players and had one very popular player (can't remember who) explain that a lot of those so called "blown coverages" by Shanle were not blown by Shanle at all.

He often recognized that someone else blew their assignment and he tried to recover for them, and was mistakenly blamed for a coverage he wasn't responsible for to begin with.
