2017 New Orleans Saints Training Camp

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I'm just glad it's being held here. Once they start seeing, hearing and feeling the support of the fans it's gong to carry a lot of weight on these players. I know some may laugh at me but morale is ...

excelling at WLB? what a huge plus it would be if he can land the starting job and keep it. Talk about the flexibility it would add to the LB Corp not to mention the speed

It never occurred to me trying him at WLB, but it sounds like a great move so far! Mike Nolan is already looking brilliant. It's early though. Anzalone could overtake him over the next couple weeks.

Re: 2017 New Orleans Saints Training Camp

When Anthony was drafted, he was meant for a 3-4 ILB job which I believe would be his best, most natural position...

Saints coaching has done a horrible, really non-existent job of developing linebackers when we did draft them...

Taking Anthony and replacing Vitt with Nolan will come to be one of those shifts when they close the books on Payton's tenure with the Saints where football fans will say...

"Why in the h~ll didn't Payton do this sooner?!?" And it will be a just, fair criticism...

Vitt Jr is he still a scout for the Saints? What players has he signed off on is the better question

Now we're getting to questions of real substance and what kind of organization this team really wants to be...

Give a person a job based on merit or on nepotism? or some other criteria?

And he's not the only one in the personnel department we need to ask this question...

Yea but on this play the safeties were supposed to have helped. They were out of position. Had that not been the case he could have had a major play. Reports say offense was sloppy and missing assignments.
