Potential has to develop. He won't be ready this year. Dunbar can contribute right now! That 4-game suspension is my only turn off.

Re: Meachem breaking news

Dunbar is only 6'0 226 lbs. that's not cool in the 3-4; Reddick on the other hand is more the prototypical MLB size 6'3" 240 lbs...

Dunbar doesn't even know the system yet. We have more than enough ILB's to compensate for Vilma's loss.

Re: Meachem breaking news

What do you need Dunbar for, Hawthorne/Lofton/Humber/Herring is a fine group of inside linebackers even without Vilma.

Re: Meachem breaking news

Dunbar played inside and outside for us. He's pretty decent in coverage too. He was versatile. The Rams fans are mad he's gone.


And why is Herring still here. Please cut him

In the 4-3! At 226 lbs.; just like the Harper at Lb wants, he'll get blown up by blockers...

Herring had a good camp (3rd best LB grade on our roster), and plays special teams pretty well.

Definitely would not even think about signing him until week 5.

WHY?

WTF?


WTF?!?!?

We need Outside Linebackers, WTF are we doing re-signing a BUST?!?

Does he have pictures of someone in a compromised disposition?!?

Re: Meachem breaking news

I think I'm part of the 'on the fence' mob with this one.

I loved Meachem and if the coaching staff think he can come in and make a massive contribution then I am happy with that. I do however struggle to comprehend why we are taking a defensive player off of the roster and replacing him with an offensive player. Even if we didn't do a straight ILB for ILB swap, I think most people would expect their to be sense in plugging in an OLB or even someone else in a D position?

Either way. I trust. I believe. I sit on the fence

Re: Meachem breaking news

Trying to keep an open mind. Then again, he's coming from San Diego to New Orleans this time, so it probably portends good things to come.

All players who come our direction from San Diego do well. lol.
