LaVar not happy

http://www.washtimes.com/sports/2005...0219-6405r.htm

I really hope he gets a start after the bye week.

Re: LaVar not happy

i hope so too. he's too good to be a backup. i think he will definitely be put in a bigger role after the bye week. apparantly he thinks his knee is healthy, but dale lindsay says he's not 100 percent yet. well i hope two weeks is enough practice for him to get to 100 percent.

Re: LaVar not happy

I hope Lavar get back in soon as well but what did he expect when last time he said they rushed him back he shoulda known they were gonna take their time.

Re: LaVar not happy

He wants to be out there helping the team, but I think after what happened last year the team and coaches are in no rush to push him too far too quick, even if he says he's 100%.

He thought he could come back last year and look what happened... then he turned it around on the team. Not gonna happen this time.

Re: LaVar not happy

I am confident G Williams has great plans for an athelete of his caliber. He'll be a happy dude soon! I hope

Re: LaVar not happy

When is Lavar happy? That's the real question. The guy has been nothing but a pain in the ass since he arrived here. Remember his first contract, he agreed in principle to terms and then tried to pull back in signing it, then signed it.

Re: LaVar not happy

Seems like every other month there's some "Lavar Not Happy" article. We could probably do a whole forum of Unhappy Lavar articles.

Re: LaVar not happy

I just think they put the quotes together and slap that title on the peice. He dosent really say anything that makes him unhappy. I love how when people say they would like to play, all of the sudden they are unhappy. I didnt play a whole lot in high school when I would have liked too, but that dosent mean I'm unhappy, ya know? If a reporter asked me if I wanted to play I would say somthing like Lavar did.

That being said, I agree that hes way to good to be on the sidelines and hope hes out there more vs Seattle.

I agree the title is misleading.

What is he supposed to say, I love riding the bench and not playing? I'm content with not playing?

Please.

Re: LaVar not happy

well the unhappiness from not being talked about it sounds real.

it really sounds like LaVar is not as much a system guy as they want him to be. everything he does he does with emotion, look at all the off-field stuff, on field must be even more so. especially with the huge chip he's carrying right now. loose canon.

i remember him not liking playing DE, but man that's what we NEED. wonder if he'd consider it again, and how he'd take it?

hell with Noble out, and the LBs playing so well, why doesn't Williams check up on his 3-4?

It sounds like that may be it, that he (like ramsey) just isnt doing what the staff wants to see him do in practice yet.

before last year he said he just wanted to win and wouldn't mind playing DE if that's what he had to do... he also said he saw what marvin lewis was doing and was sorry he was soo resistant to his plans at the time.

i think williams does use some 3-4 mixed in with everything else, but the base package is standard 4-3.

Re: LaVar not happy

"LaVar needs more work [in practice]," Lindsey said. "On top of that, he has to feel confident that his knee is OK and that he understands what the [defensive] system asks him to do and then can go out and do that to the best of his ability, and we have to feel the same way about him."

The impression I'm getting from Lindsey's quote:

1) LaVar is still free-lancing and not doing what Gregg Williams is asking him to do.

2) LaVar doesn't fully understand Gregg Williams' scheme.

If that's the case, they are doing the right thing by not starting him IMO.

Re: LaVar not happy

Arrington as a down lineman is problematic. The difference between a two point stance and a three point stance is pretty significant for a player who has 6 yr in the league and add in his time at Penn State and you have a player who wants to stay in his comfort zone. Even if he agreed to try and switch it would be difficult.

well he did get career high sacks that year.

if not, let's see the 3-4. we have a backup tackle in there now, and our front four isn't bringing it without help anyway.
