I'm pretty sure this article is from 2010 meaning the 2010-11 season, when the defense was much better.


And he still isn't a top 5 OLB.

Ummmm who called him a top 5 OLB? He was listed as the 5th best available in FA last year.

That dime-a-dozen player beat Beason's single season tackles record.

I'm not saying Anderson is great, but he's more than "just a guy".


Raw tackle numbers on a D that couldn't stop anyone with scrubs all over the field doesn't mean what some suggest....

Go look at the 100+ tackle guys each year.....plenty of JAGs

Ya'll dudes b**** over the drop of a dime. Damn, Anderson's been our most reliable/consistent LB over the past two years (injuries to Beason, and Davis). He's played all three downs in the absence of starters and held his own with a bunch of rookies/back-ups up front and around him.

Top ten in tackles...I mean what else do you want from your "Sam"...? Be glad we have a solid set of 4-3 LB's. None of us are GM's or know how the cap works/can be manipulated. That's why we pay to watch games, and you know the coaching/team staff get paid to assemble a team and manage the contracts, evaluate talent, and coach the players.

Well Witherspoon was/is better.

One of our worst FA move was letting witherspoon go.

He's not the best cover guy. But he's been a stud for us. He's made plays for us and is a great fugging tackler. I don't know what you guys want from him. I can see how some say he's over paid, but that doesn't say anything about his skill and what he brings to this team.

Gantt also thinks there's still hope for Armanti as a PR...

It was a choice between him and Morgan, hindsight = 20/20.

Gantt's tone when talking AE has changed as he has gotten chances. Not sure Gantt thinks he makes the team

As far as third best linebackers on a team go, Anderson is pretty good. He is an average player, who can play some pretty good games. Not every player needs to be a superstar and when he, Beason and Connor were playing together they were all playing at very hihg levels.

I think he is the sort of player who takes advantage of playing with better players, however isn't good enough to be the cornerstone of a defence. But anyone expecting all pros at every position is a little naive.

The contract though, is high. No two ways about it.

I might be wrong but wasn't it James Anderson who was the one who has the mic in his helmet this past season and the person in charge of getting the defense ready for each play. There was a play where Anderson and Brees was going back and forth presnap. The video on youtube was deleted though.

Guys on this board are simply finding things to whine about while they have to wait like the grown ups on the NFL season.

Papa says Hush!...Anderson is paid what he should and has developed into a great SLB. Hardly a problem position.


Is the next topic the lack of Pancake blocks from Kalil and why he is overrated now?

Not hindsight for me. I always liked and wanted for us to keep spoon.
