I took a bullet in the labrum over Macho Grande!! I told them not to send George Zipp on the mission too! They should have sent "The Kid" and don't call me Shirley!

Heard a rumor from the Saints Training Camp!

What is it?

That place on Airline where the Saints practice!!
LOL!~

In the recent articles about the Nolan and the linebackers, there's a quote of Dennis Allen that pretty much indicates Nolan showed him some things on coaching, communicating with individuals...

Mike Nolan, savvy, veteran coach that he is, just has a natural way of communicating and get his players to respond that they're processing his lessons or neaux...

To you're original question about Klein, in an article a few weeks back, Klein revealed he's been seeing time at both Mike and Sam and that Saints coaching told him as much; he played SAM in Carolina and had the speed and skills to cover tight ends and most running backs...

While the Saints like their 3-safety sets with Vaccaro coming up in a Thomas Davis role, I suspect now that the talent has improved at the LB position, we'll see more base sets with Klein-Anthony-Anzalone...

It's funny what a good teacher can do for people after giving the students the proper tools to succeed. I'm hoping for Anthony to put it all together with Nolan showing him how to do it. He started with all the right tools and hopefully it was Joe Vitt that just confused him rather than tailoring a method of coaching that would specifically suit him.
This. I believe that was the problem w Rob Ryan. He had a lot of experience and knowledge, but he didnt k ow how to transfer it to the players on the field.

My dad used to tell me that former GM Jim Finks always preached it takes three years to develop a player (Peat/Anthony). Well .... this is year 3.

Here's to hoping they both play lights out in 2017 .

Are you saying a new "Dome Patrol" is born?

Ha Smash! We can dream can't we? ...

I do believe however Stephone could be a sleeper. Some guys may take a few years before it "clicks". Last year he started a new position and I don't think he was 100% healthy either. Now he has the tools (elite teacher in Nolan), to make a major leap. No excuses this year though. He has to bring it.

I look at players like Craig Robertson or Klein who took a few years before they made contributions (although I think Stephone has more raw talent). Whether it's nickel, base, dime etc., the competition at the LB position should be strong.

The LB squad could help the Saints 2017 defense become a version of the "No Name Defense" that Miami had back in 1972.

what are the odds that Nolan replaces DA in the near future?
