I seem to remember even third tier running backs running right through him almost every play.... And don't get me started on goal line stands.... Have a good time in Chicago Sed... The good news is you've got Bushrod there to console you....

He said this same bull**** about the switch from Greg Williams to Spags. Almost to the frigan word

If he said he was done wrong last year I will give him that but that is the only year he can use that excuse.

Re: New Bear Ellis circles Saints game, issues (almost) guarantee

Ellis definitely lost some points in my mind for some of those comments.

Now, I do understand that new additions to a team do these type of puff pieces all the time (see all NOLA articles on Saints' additions), but Ellis seems to have a tendency to blame everyone else for his shortcomings than himself.

After the work stoppage, Ellis said that he was going to have a breakthrough year with both Rogers and Franklin eating up most of the double teams, which would allow him to purely rush the passer. What happened? Nothing really, he continued to be average at best in creating QB pressure, and don't get me started on his run defense.

Then GW was replaced by Spags and Ellis said in an interview that it was exciting for the D-linemen to make the change because GW's front 4 schemes were supposedly the most complex in the whole of NFL, which in turn handcuffed the D-lineman in what they could do in terms of rushing the passer. Ellis was supposed to be heading for a career year on his contract year with everything on the line and the new addition Bunkley lining up beside him to take up double teams. What happened? Absolutely nothing... well, that's wrong, there was a change but unfortunately for Ellis; it was for the worse. He was absolute rubbish once again and late in the season when he was lined up next to Tom Johnson - a guy they signed from the CFL and plays under a $800K contract - Ellis was the one getting the single treatment, but was still constantly losing those battles with the O-linemen.

So, to me it all sounds like hot air and I couldn't care less where he plays or if the Saints are going to be facing that team. I'm not going to be following his career as I do with many of the other former Saints' players after they've moved on to other teams - mainly because I don't think Ellis will have a career in the NFL going forward. I hardly think that he was turning suitors away this offseason, and had the Saints offered him a contract, he would've jumped at the chance to re-sign. He'll be riding the pine this whole season with the Bears unless they face multiple injuries to their DT corps.

Good riddance Sedrick!

The Saints let their d-lineman do that as well, you were just so ****ing bad at it that there was no way we any team would give you more than a 1 year, low cost contract. ****ing plug.
