Mike Nolan: Sean Weatherspoon can be 'a lot better'

But Falcons defensive coordinator Mike Nolan believes the versatile third-year linebacker hasn't come close to reaching his ceiling.

"He's a good player now, but he could be a lot better than he is," Nolan told the official team site on Monday. "And he will be. No question, because he loves football and he's exciting to watch and he's a playmaker, for all those reasons. But he's done well, but he can still do a lot better."

As Gregg Rosenthal pointed out in our "Making the Leap" series, Weatherspoon has the ideal skill set for his position in today's NFL. Every team needs their outside linebackers to match run-stopping and QB-rushing ability with coverage skills. Weatherspoon proved during last season's Pro Bowl-level performance that he can do it all.

Nolan -- who was named Atlanta's new defensive coordinator in January -- might be the philosophical match to Weatherspoon's physical prowess. But Nolan cautioned it's a learning process for the 24-year-old.

"Primarily, what I see is a guy who just loves to play, but in the new system, he's still trying to learn the language and things like that, so there's some way to go," he said. "But he'll find it very friendly and I think he already does see, down the road, how exciting it can be in this system, because a lot of guys have benefited from it."

The Falcons were confident enough in Weatherspoon to let Curtis Lofton walk in free agency. Don't be surprised if Weatherspoon rewards his team's faith.

every? prove it

Isnt that a coaches job? To make a player better? To make sure every player gives 100%? Are you playing dumb here or trying to be argumentative?

Im sure there are players on every team that can be better ie. give better effort.

The same goes for the entire falcons roster. Held back by poor coaching. Now that they got a new sheriff in town. The have no where to go but up.

How does a team win so many regular season games the last few years with such lousy coaching? Didn't that same LOUSY coaching staff go 13-3 in 2010? Falcon fans are soooooo funny, they cry about poor coaching when they win 10 or 13 games, yet when we lose 10 games in a row and it's apparent to anyone with a brain that the team quit on them, it's not the coaching staff it's ALL the players. It's called blind Homerism!laugh.png

You have to admit that both coordinators were extremely predictable. If you don't think a coaching change cannot matter look at the Texans, and even look at the Saints in 09.
