Can't stop the run, can't secure his assignment, always looking for a sack with the same limited moves...

And if we're going to a 34 defense shouldn't we have spent his funs on a tru OLB?!?

And if we're going to stay a 43 defense, he;s undersized for that as well...

Third down '"specialists' getting three-down money...

This is on Loomis...

Definitely can't stop the run very well and has never heard of keeping containment on his end of the field. We need a OLB to go with Haralson, a CB, another NT, and 1 or 2 ILBs who can cover and who don't run right into the trash or make so many tackles so far down the field on run plays. Junior is a pass rush specialist only.

Of course, but Lofton didn't replace 2009 Jonathan Vilma. He replaced broken-down 2012 Jonathan Vilma.

Sure, the smart thing to do woud have been to prop up our current players and say that they're on the same level as the great players that they're replacing, and that's a lesson that Junior has now undoubtedly learned. Maybe he's not quite ready to be a team captain maturity-wise but I can tell that he's definitely trying and I respect the passion he displays. He just needs to develop a little gravitas and I'm sure that will come with age.



Maybe he can develop some more pass rush moves.

I bet Gallette gets a visit from "game day Sean".

However, Galette wasn't just talking about their final seasons. When asked to clarify, he said he was comparing their entire body of work.

Re: Junior bashes former teammates

Look, I get it. Junior is frustrated because his performance and the defense as a unit SUCK, and he's obviously been paying too much attention to all the sports pundits that suggest that losing key defensive players last year is the reason for the Saints' defensive woes. And they're probably right.
I understand the frustration, but when it comes to commenting publically about himself or the team, he isn't ready for prime time.
Seems Junior has trouble stopping the run and his mouth.

Re: Junior bashes former teammates

This dude is embarrassing himself and this organization, in my opinion. He ain't got a ring. Smith & Vilma do. He absolutely did not have to say what he said, frustrated or not.

Tell the press the usual company line of "We're playing one game at a time and we're not looking in the past and we've got some really great guys who are really working hard to get the job done this week for the win."

Give the "C" to a real leader next season and press forward. Already tired of this clown's mouth. Can't stop the run, can't do jack squat in a very limited pass coverage role, and certainly can't stop his mouth (sorry, Saintsfan4ever...stole that from you, bro)...

So essentially a 3rd down Clown who can sometimes get to the QB and sometimes get a holding call but disappears far too often on passing downs for that contract and that "C". Just keep your mouth shut about players who were achieving greatness and a Lombardi Trophy while you were transferring from Temple to Stillman College.

Re: Junior bashes former teammates

JR needs to learn once a saint always a saint and the way we part ways with most of the players gives him no right to say anything especially since he is up for the one year wonder award this year. if you can not put up then shut up.

Re: Junior bashes former teammates

Stand by what I said earlier, this is on Loomis for extending the punk from Port-au-Prince...

The one good thing that may come of this is that if he's trying to get out of here, he may have done us a favor by playing Payton and Loomis' hand...

And maybe, just maybe, we can get a true 3-4, 3-down linebacker...
