[QUOTE=sameoldjets;3528440]did i say adalius was an ex-patsie or in the bellichicken's dog house? please read before replying. as your buddy patsfasntx always reminds us if a player can't play it's the coaches responsibility to get him into situations where he can play. this is all on bellichicken for signing him and then not using him properly or not getting complimentary people around him.[/QUOTE]
I don't understand how some people fail to understand or acknowlege this concept that some players don't fit in one system oppose to another.
AD was a probowler under Ryan in B-More, in New England he has been average at best. AD was put in at ILB in NE to play the run and cover TEs, in B-More they used him more as an OLB and pass rusher where he could cause some damage and is more effective.
Another Example: Jonathan Vilma was an emerging star in the 4-3 with Hermie and Donnie Henderson, when Mangini came along and installed NEs "read and react" 3-4 he became JAG and struggled. He's back in a 4-3 in NO and has played 10 times better than he did here w/Mangini, its a simple concept.
