I have a problem with that though. Okay, we have bigger needs than him but after what happened to our defense this year, why all the crap for a simple discussion about a player? A lot of it is just SEC homer bull shite and that sucks.

Because he's overrated.

Not really. Dion Jordan, Bjorn Werner, even Margus Hunt got plenty of love on here.

maybe he is but maybe he isn't. I know we have no shot of picking him but it sucks that some of threads get crapped on so quickly because in some cases guys just have some dim witted hate for a player because of where he goes to school.

edit: why not throw more feedback with responses like, we need more help at OLB than MLB. Or people could give a take of what they saw from our LB's that they liked or didn't like this past year.

It's not a ND thing. If Louis Nix was coming out you wouldn't see people shitting on him.

Because this literally goes without saying.

all good. We need more speed at that position. We have for years. Lofton played pretty well I thought but there wasn't much stability at OLB this year. With the injuries and what not.

re: Still want Te'o?


exactly.

it's not an sec thing. heck teo is a likable guy.. but it is what it is.. the guy is not warranted the type of praise he got. it's not about hating ND or loving the sec players only.

i want a guy who imposes his will on this defense. a true difference maker. teo looks slow, he looked timid tonight, does he even hit hard? i have never seen teo just light someone up.. he doesn't force fumbles.. he doesn't tackle for loss. he whiffs.. most his stats are gang related tackles.. i just don't know if i'd want that..

another thing is just how often do these highly touted media darlings work out in the nfl of late? and yes i know that's sort of a superstitious and silly.. but there may be a pattern here as well.. maybe theres not.. either way i'd prefer a guy with a little more speed and size.

Remove Teo's Notre Dame uniform and put an LSU uniform on him - he gets less publicity than Minter.

After last night (shitty tackling) i think id take Minter over Teo. If i recall, Minter has as good or better stats in everything except INTs which is how Teo got noticed.

That being said, i dont think either fit the Saints needs at OLB.

re: Still want Te'o?


Lol it was me who started a thread about getting him. I was just curious about everyones opinion. I knew that this game would show his "true potential" haha and boy did it ever. That Alabama team that they played last night is as close as a team to NFL talent that they have played all year, and it showes that T'eo will just not show up in the NFL. He will be a decent LB at bets, but he has a bigger potential to be an overhyped bust.

But he does have a sweet name haha

Why in the fing hell would he be in for Lofton???? Our best defensive player? Seriously.

I said he couldn't make us worse. I didn't mean that he would be starting over a stud like Lofton.

Te'o actually looked like he was scared to try and tackle the guy. Te'o has NFL bust written all over him.
