"Asked what Anthony can do to get a bigger role, Payton declined to comment"

Why draft him in the first round if you won't use him!

Yes x100. Give Robertson the headset and move Laurinaitis to Sam. There's no way Anthony is more of a liability in coverage than Laurinaitis.

Re: Where is Stephone Anthony??

We are just absolutely bursting with talent at the linebacker position and we don't have a spot for Anthony.

Sarcasm but I guess that is what Payton would have us believe.

Re: Where is Stephone Anthony??

Laurinaitis was in for all defensive snaps and only accomplish 1 tackle and 2 assists. You have your leading tackler benched and you can't answer a simple question of why? I am just thinking if he was in when it was a 3rd and a long 2 yds (normally a team will try to throw for the first) would they held them. Laurinaitis was driven back with authority and they got that 1st

I wish I had video of it. The guy do not need to start if they so concern why not just give him (SA)some snaps at mlb to help him progress

Stephone Anthony is a MLB. OLB is a whole new can of worms to the kid.

When the saints signed Laurinaitis, I was expecting an active rotation at MLB till Anthony got adjusted.

Never really liked the move but I am was willing to give it a shot.

But to sit a talent like him makes one wonder.

DA runs the show his way. Keenan Lewis didn't mesh with Allen and is now gone. It looks like we may see that same pattern again with Anthony.
If we wanted to trade him you would think we would show case him during the games. I'm really beginning to question the FO on a regular basis now.

I really really really really hope we do not get rid of Anthony. Maybe he's too durable?

The next question is the mental aspect.

43 OLB is a different can of worms all together.

The one statement about Anothy I agreed on during the draft was "guessing rather than instinctive" or Reads and then react. we all knew we were taking him with the second first but that was a reach pick and we all knew it.

What a waste of learning time at MLB. Change to 43 is one thing but move him to OLB is another.

Rotate him at MLB for the love of god and stop stagnating his growth.

I agree. He needs to be rotated in for Laurinaitis much more frequently. Not only will it help Anthony progress, but it will help Laurinaitis stay fresh. Lord knows he could use it.
