Well something f*cking happen between Anthony's first season and now, and I know his football IQ didn't suddenly dropped...

You don't get 112 tackles, one sack, one interception, and two forced fumbles as a Rookie by not being around the ball...

Anthony was the first Saint rookie linebacker to record 100+ tackles since Dome Patrol Legend Rickey Jackson...

Besides leading all NFL rookies in tackles, Stephone also returned and scored the first blocked kick for 2pts in NFL history...

It's simple - Stephone Anthony's decline coincides with Dennis Allen becoming the Defensive Coordinator...

Dennis Allen needs to extricate his head from his @ss and find a way to make this work with Anthony...

If not, this is on Sean Payton and the Mickster to reclaim their reps as competent NFL Personnel People...

They've got to get these two on the same page as the Saints need Anthony's first round talent on the field...

Working for them, not another team, against them...

I completely agree with every word. I think Allen don't like the kid because Ryan drafted him. I also think the only saving grace he has might be in Nolan, but Nolan has to be careful because Allen is Paytons boy.

Not sure why we are so concerned with Anthony getting in the field. If he got beat out, appears he did, or isn't available because he can't stay healthy how does that fall on Allen?

B&G,
IIRC you predicted that Stephone would be cut this year. Initially I thought it was an extreme prognostication but now it doesn't appear to be that far fetched .

Re: Saints believe 'it won't be too long' before Stephone Anthony returns

To be honest, I really don't care if he starts or not. I just want the best 3 out there. I mean, sure it'd be great if we didn't blow a first round pick a few seasons ago, but at this point I'm happy with whoever gives the defense the best chance.

I agree with best 3 (or 4 in some cases) on the field. I don't see it being Anthony though. Said it numorous times. Something is going on with Anthony we don't know.

If Stupar needs to hit IR with his quad then we'll keep Anthony for insurance. I hope he gets his act together. We'll see what Nolan can do with hm.

Anthony is 3-4 ILB. I think he's having a hard time adjusting to the 4-3 as well as him not necessarily being used to his strengths.

Damn, there was an opportunity to move Anthony.

First concern is how can the organization can not continue to throw away first round picks and be successful?

Second concern is how does a player who balls out his rookie season forget to play middle linebacker?

Have no problem with the fact the guy may have been beaten out, but when you combine both those issues, there may be a problem with another @sshole on the team that's not warranted...
