Re: Fletchers replacement is Landry?

Playing safety like a linebacker, and playing linebacker (even OLB), are two different things.

Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

LaRon Landry training his body is a positive thing. But still, he shouldn't be that big. He has to be taking growth hormone or something. I remember a highlight of Landry being run over by Brandon Jacobs back in 2008. In looking at that recent picture of him all ripped and largely muscular, I doubt if Jacobs can do that to him now.

Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

I think there's a difference between being physically strong and football strength. Sean Taylor wasn't ripped, per se, but he was what I would call football strong, in that he could leverage his size, speed, and power to take on players bigger than him or blow up running backs and wideouts. That's what actually made him so special.

Laron Landry tends to blow people up if he's running in a straight line after gaining some momentum. I don't ever remember a running back blowing up Sean Taylor, even if he was stationary at the line of scrimmage.

Taylor was simply one of kind safety.

We can finally get this party started, now that somebody brought the logic.

Re: Fletchers replacement is Landry?

I don't think LaRon is anywhere close to being bright enough to be a competent replacement of all the London does for this team. Sure, he's built like a monster truck, but that doesn't necessarily translate to him being able to take over that role.

Maybe we'll be able to convince London Fletcher to come out of retirement and take his place. He used to be damn good back in the day.

Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

If you remember before Taylor's last season he dropped a decent amount of weight. I think he wanted to be faster and cover more ground, and i remember a forum member saying that speed or velosity is more imporant than weight for big collisions. Obvisouly LL feels differently.

Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

LaRon Landry without a doubt is only going to run slower. While he can still line up in the box like an extra linebacker, I'm not sure that this Dorian Yates muscularity of his will do him any good on the football field. His injury will not heal. Maybe it will, but sometimes surgery is the best option and he decided to go with what he went through with last off season and it did him or the injury no good.

If he doesn't come back to Washington, I wouldn't be surprised. From 2007 until now, I really wasn't impressed with him at all. If Vinny Cerratto was smart, he would have traded Landry for Ryan Clark. That way, we would have had a real strong safety in the defensive backfield like we did when Clark and Sean Taylor were the sheriff and the deputy.

The blame should be on Gregg Williams, he was the one who believed that he could find someone better than Clark, which was when he signed Archuleta (sp?). Although I think it is worth noting the fact that Landry seemed to play well with Taylor on his side, until Taylor passed away and then Landry obviously felt the pressure to play as well as Taylor did.

Apparently I missed this earlier. Welcome to the boards!
