Accountability

While it's admirable how hard the players have continued to play, I sense that the coaches send mixed messages when it comes to players doing their jobs. Carlos Rogers blows a coverage on a double move and gets benched. Last season, he played arguably the best football of his career in the first 8 games, and was benched after making a few bad plays. Laron Landry regularly makes undisciplined plays, late hits, blown coverages, bad angles, missed tackles due to poor technique, etc. As an aside, Landry makes an ass of himself at least twice a game, bringing attention to himself after making a routine tackle.

I'm tired of the coaches protecting some players while dogging others. Take Suisham - name a kick of any significance that he's made this year. Yet coaches tolerate his short kickoffs, some of which have even gone out of bounds. Put Suisham in to make a big kick with the game on the line, and the results have been spotty at best.

I fully expect Zorn to come to the conclusion that he's so pissed at Landry's play that Carlos Rogers must be benched again when Hall comes back.

Whomever our next coach ends up being, I hope that he brings more of a consistent sense of accountability and consequences for not doing your job.

Re: Accountability

I agree.

Let's also get guys out of the lineup who aren't making plays. Randle El shouldn't be in the lineup anymore. Not on special teams or WR. I love the guy and he is a person you need on your team but at this point in the year, It's time for Kelly, Thomas and anyone else to get more opportunities.

Re: Accountability

I disagree about Randle El. I think he really makes his presence known in the slot, and has converted several key 3rd downs for us as a release valve for JC.

Most definitely, Randle El has been valuable for us when he's playing at slot spot.. He always find a soft spot of defense when we needed a long play when we are in 3rd down and long situations.

Edit: on the other hand, I agree with this thread.. Coaches definitely need to start making players take the responsible for their error actions..

Agreed. As long as he's not returning punts, he contributes in POSITIVE ways.

Also, Landry played a good game aside from the 2 double moves he was bunt on. I even saw him make some nice hits and tackles without celebrating and talking smack like usual, I thought there may have been a chance he was either getting a hint or growing up...a few times at least. It WAS Drew Brees' offense burning him at least and not some nobody scrub QB. Brees does that to everyone. Not making excuses, Landry screwed up twice, but it WAS the Saints.

I get it to a point, but some of the (over)reactions are a bit over the top.

Well, people would look like idiots to still be blaming Campbell...since President Bush is out of Washington, SOMEONE has to be blamed for our failures.

i really think part of the reason for that is the fact that campbell stays composed and isn't celebrating when he completes a 15 yard pass

landry on the other hand will stop a guy on a run play after he has gained nine yards and stand up and mug everyone like he just caught an int and returned it for 6

not to mention campbell is producing and lookin good, landry is gettin exposed more and more

Re: Accountability

Outside of his obvious mistakes I thought LL was pretty solid yesterday.

Landry has been on my shit list all year. He is strong in run support at times, but as I've said many times, his agressiveness suits him much better for strong safety. I loved him there when #21 was alive, but Landry has been a liability giving up big plays due to his lack of discipline ALL season. Most of all, he NEVER MAKES PLAYS (2 INTs in 40+ regular season starts). I just want to see the same measure of accountability applied to him that I see being applied to Carlos Rogers. Bottom line, he is the last line of defense. It is Job One of a free safety to prevent receivers from getting behind for easy scores. If Landry does his job, Brees doesn't drive 80 yards in a ridiculous 33 seconds to tie the game.

Re: Accountability

Mike Sellers should be tossed to the sharks! Time to draft a fullback in the 6th round. The coaching staff needs to get on LL about biting on the fakes.

Re: Accountability

Draft Tim Tebow to replace Sellers!

Seriously though, could Eddie Williams be a possible replacement for Sellers? I was a bit surprised to see Sellers get an extension. I thought he was actually a strong candidate to get cut this past summer
