It's hard to say if he got better, because he was pretty damn good before he was injured...

Signed again in '08 from the Dolphins because we were looking at him to be a long snapper, released when a better option was found.

You are correct but since he said no one can name one, I couldn't resist.

And I'd agree with the previous post that having hired Willis (Inside Linebackers) and assigning Brian Young (Outside Linebackers) this past offseason at least shows the organization acknowledges those areas were worefully underperforming...

Now to address two other areas, the indefensible defensive line and that porous offensive line...

Re: Saints 2016 Coaching Staff

Fuita's best years were here, in fact I'd say he got better as a Saint. Cassillas was the same player here as he was with the Rams. Shanle was better here than in Dallas

Speaking of coaching moves; Rex Ryan has hired his brother at assistant coach and DC for the Bills.

Don't know 'bout that as Fujita and that Browns team had a good couple of years - their offense just sucked unless they played the Saints...

Think you may mean J Dunbar as Casillas plays for the G'nats and is doing really well...

Jonathan Casillas, OLB for the New York Giants at NFL.com

Agree with you on another post that Shanle too waay took much flack, he played all out with his physical talents and mistakes were often because the strong safety (Bama41) was slow to pick up 'exchanges' in coverage...

Buffalo Wings and Crawfish, the overt nepotism in this league never ceases to amaze...

How long till Sexy Rexy punches Rob-boy on the sidelines...

Rex will teach Rob what defense lol

Rex will keep Rob on a short leash. Rob will have little say in player moves also.

Rob is in the perfect place, under his big brothers thumb.
