Does anyone know why we haven\'t brought in Mark Fields for the LB spot. He is an unrestricted free agent and though the Panthers have tons of depth at LB they desperately want him back because of the leadership he provides as well as the fact that he was a ProBowler last year. I never wanted him to leave in the first place, but I would take Fields over Brown, Hardy or any other veteran out there. We need to make an offer and bring our draft choice home.

Mark Fields wants to play for Carolina, and has told them he will not sign a contract until he is sure he can play the season. He won\'t be coming back.

Sometimes a light bulb goes off in ones head and they finally get it. 4 games can make a huge difference in a learning process and if they finally get it great. Learning the system, and learning how to work with one another the game planning coach could make a huge difference this year.
This is probably what Loomis is thinking. :casstet:

stockman,

Don\'t be fooled by Fields\' performance with Carolina. Fields was a product of the Panthers\' superior coaching system. He was always a great athlete but he lacks ideal instincts and smarts that a naturally talented LB has. He needs to be in a system that knows how to use his athleticism properly. If we were to pick him up again he would be as lost as he was when he first got here.

Good Call, that Panther coaching staff could make James Allen, Sedrick Hodge, and Orlando Ruff look great.

So Tomb,
Basically what your saying is a) that the Saints don\'t have a Superior coaching system that could utilize a good athlete\'s skills and b) Mark Fields hasn\'t matured as a football player at all since playing for Carolina and is purely an athlete?

I\'m sorry but if that is the case why was he making plays against us all last year and why even bring in quality veterans or rookies for that matter if our coaching stinks in the first place?

That is almost exactly what I\'m saying. Fields is more than purely an athlete, but he is not what I would call an overly talented LB.

Again Fields isn\'t what I would call quality. He was in the right system at the right time. Our coaching staff would be/would have been better served to bring in players that have better instincts and more natural talent for the position.
