Re: Mike Nolan is using a tailored approach to reach each individual linebacker the best possible way

Nolan's approach is a common trait with coaches like Coach Payton...

And it is what separates him from many of the other coaches like Ryan, D.A., Mora...

To be successful quickly in the NFL - a key to sticking around in the league - you build your team to your resources and tweak it...

You don't come in with some static system and expect to find each and every player to fit that mould...

Payton took what he had and built a team; weeded out a few non-team, bad attitude people, and...Championship...

Hearing Mike Nolan take this approach reaffirms what I've been saying earlier - the best acquisitions the Saints have made this offseason are Nolan and Nielsen...

Re: Mike Nolan is using a tailored approach to reach each individual linebacker the best possible way

This is the part of the article that jumps out at me...

Even the way Nolan talks to his players is different and has surprised some of the other coaches. Defensive coordinator Dennis Allen was recently taken aback when he heard Nolan giving out instructions.

When told about this, Nolan knew exactly the moment Allen was referencing. Instead of telling a linebacker to get in front of a player to reroute him, Nolan will say something like, slide to them, step and replace, and take the charge. He prefers this language because it paints a picture and illustrates how things are supposed to be done, as opposed to just giving an order.


Looks like D.A. will have an opportunity to learn as well...hopefully...

Why are you talking bad on Mora? The guy didn't win a playoff game but was at least successful in making the playoffs in the NFL. Nolan didn't even have a winning season.

Astute observation JP. I hope the change in language works. If not we should resort to shock therapy.

I personally plan on falling back to drinking heavily.

Spike, you really answered your own question, brother...

As a position coach, specifically LBer coach, I'd challenge you to find a LB position coach who's developed, coached as many HOF LBers, college and pro, as Nolan has...

Nolan's hiring, along with Nielsen, caught the attention and has made the division rivals nervous - even prompting stories about same, links have been shared as well...

As far as Mora, it's more than the playoff futili6ty; it was also his lack of loyalty to his subordinate coaches in the press, lack of faith in the very players he selected for his team, making contract negotiations petty and personal often causing good loyal players to leave, his static style of coaching with particular failure to make adjustments among other criticisms...

Should've kept him on as commentator though. He could be pretty hilarious.

We need also need to include hypnotherapy for the incumbent LB's to forget every trace of Joe Vitt
