Re: Big-name linebackers on bubble in Saints' 53-man roster projection

Nate Stupar was pretty impressive as well and is a guy who hardly ever gets mentioned for being able to cover, hit and stick...

Point being, in today's NFL economics, I wouldn't be surprised if Ellerbe goes on the move if he starts complaining about sand in his vajajay...

Nolan/Anthony is most overlooked, disregarded story right now - stay tuned nay-sayers, you're about to be reminded of what coaching can do...

Several NFL scouts have disclosed that if Anzalone had stayed healthy in Gainesville, he'd been a first round pick; fingers crossed...

A.J. Klein will eat with his new start, only it will be a Sam linebacker and we won't see as much three-safety now that we have depth at LBer...

Amazingly we still have uber utility LBer Craig Robertson with the hardest job being convincing him to stay in that role and take the kicking coverage to a new level...

Manti Teo was brought in to show the other LB kids how Mike Nolan likes to get things done; we done this with DBs in the past as well...

It's hard for me to disagree here. With the current roster of LB's, I don't see Ellerbe sitting on the stationary bike for half of the season. He must come into TC and make an impression on the field or run the risk of getting cut + he is getting long in the tooth.

In a perfect world

Nate Stupar and Craig Robertson would be the pass down package of LBs.

Still think Craig Robertson will be our starting WLB.

I think Stupe is badass! Very underrated! The kid can play.

Was never a fan of the James L signing last season & I hope AJ Klein proves me wrong this year.
