Thread: Ellerbe

    Re: Ellerbe



    With the new pussified NFL, at least one inside linebacker has to be able to cover and as much as I like Ellerbe in the run game and on the blitz, he is not good in overage.

    That's why you draft a CJ Mosley who can do exactly that. Ideally you could get Manti Teo who can do both at an elite level, but I doubt we'll be picking lower than 15.

    but still the best we have on this team outside possibly ayenbadejo. Despite wanting to focus on ST, i think its time he starts getting some reps in obvious passing downs.

    Re: Ellerbe

    Funny under chuck Ps defense not very many people was saying this, on the contrary people were like " where Ray get this fountain of youth" now under piss pees any LB would look like crap, pat willis would like shit under this asshole. Ellerbe is stepping up but cleveland isn't an offensive juggernaut and weeden who is a rookie sure as hell still managed to kill this defense with our corners playing 20yrds off the ball. I hope ellerbe improves, we still need better LBs but to say ellerbe and this defense is playing better without Ray thats just non sense, we got some QBs coming up here soon we shall see.

    Ayenbadejo has been tried before. For being so good on St's, he really isn't that good in space, and he gets pushed around a lot. Plus, he's no spring chicken either, he's 36 years old.

    That's a hilarious comment, lol comon man this is game, lets not call people assholes for possibly not getting the best out of the players he has, which is debatable as it may just purely be the players regressing (not that I think that's the case, but we don't know for sure which one it is). Even if he was really as bad as some around here think, it's not fair to label someone an asshole.

    Some of the LB's have looked bad because of the ineptitude of our Dline, that's more to blame than Dean Pees IMO.

    Take off the purple glasses dude. Ray is done. He is 37 after all.

    Ellerbe has been really impressive. I didn't get to watch the Browns game due to Sandy, but it seemed like he played very well. I'm close to saying that he can be a starter for us for a long time, and I hope that we can find a way to retain him. McClain's contract wasn't real big or anything, but I'm thinking that even that deal was a waste. He's just not that special, more of a backup IMO. We definitely need to invest a high pick on an ILB that can team with Ellerbe. I'm also praying that Tyson gets more time.

    On a side note, this coaching staff really makes it tough to win games with some of their decisions. Based off that, I'm already guessing a divisional playoff loss. It's way too predictable week in, week out. Don't have the coordinators or the personnel defensively to compete with Houston or NE or Denver for that matter. We will be matched by Pitt too and all those games will be tough dogfights, but it's tough to watch this team... It's the same old story and if getting to the playoffs is good enough for some of you, then I'm sure you enjoy it year in and year out, but to me, it's old. I'd like to actually win the SB for once. We need to get a lot better.

    What was the score earlier on in the year again against NE again?
