Ilb ?


Recommended Posts

I know Worr is headed into a contract year but I think his replacement is there for the taking in next years draft. Seeing as we hired Ulbrich to be our linebackers coach, we might as well bring one of his players with him. This dude Myles Jack is for lack of words "just AWESOME". He plays ILB and RB for the Bruins.SO falcon fans, what do you guys think?

No matter how much yall dislike it, Worrilow ain't going anywhere.

I just can't get last years game out of my head against the bengals and seeing worr get crushed and then thinking about all the tackles he makes 8-10 yards down field. i hope more than anyone Worr has really improved greatly. I really do.

You talk as if the whole team didnt play like garbage against the Bengals last seaaon. The entire team laid an egg.

Well he may not be leaving the building and that is OK as long as he finds his way to the bench so a real NFL player can get in the game.

Well dont hold your breath on that. A replacement wasnt signed in FA nor drafted, so may as well started supporting Worrilow.

Yall are all tripping, Paul Worrilow is the leader of the defense. Especially with Wiliam Moore spending time out last year and Spoon being on IR, you don't bench the leader of you defense. Its more about morale, than his mistakes.

Plus as some of you pointed out, his mistakes were exemplified by the fact that our entire run stop crew was ****** all year. No one was penetrating gaps, or shooting them.

Worrilow is the Falcon's linebacker of the future, in fact with Raheem Morris being here I see Paul Worriilow starting to look more like how Lovie Smith would have played Brian Urlacher.

That's right I said it, Worrilow = poor man's Urlacher.

Delete now or this post could be TATF fodder next year.

Buddy has a lot of rising to do. I'm pulling for him.

He needs a Jessie Tuggle UDFA MLB type rising. Please lord of the football gods. We could use one.

You all that don't like Worrilow because he rated at the bottom with PFF and seemed to miss tackles or make tackles 8 yards past the LoS need to realize that a large portion of that was because of Nolan's "assignment" defensive scheme. Everything with Nolan was about gap or zone assignments. And if Nolan guessed wrong on any given offensive counter-play, there was the strong chance our players would be out of position to make the play timely.

ESPECIALLY the SILB (Worrilow), who would be left on an island by himself much of the time having to worry about the strong-side A and B gaps, a huge chunk of the middle layer, plus the TE or RB possibly sliding out into the flat. He rarely had a safety helping him because our CB's were always in a soft-cover zone and they needed help over the top and were then always too far to help tackle anything around Worrilow.

This is also why Worrilow had so many tackles. Think about this logically. How do you rack up 8-12 tackles every game and still end up rated so poorly? It's because you have a huge amount of space to cover and nobody to help you.

You give Worrilow less space to cover and let him read where the ball is going and not be forced into a spot according to his assignment, and he might just shine. Bobby Wagner thrived in Quinn's defense because he just gets to follow the ball and make plays. He never has an assignment and he always has a safety or SAM or WILL close by to help him. The NT, DT, and 5-tech DE are covering gaps differently too. Wagner isn't often stuck having to shed the block of some 6'5 300 lb guard either.

If Worrilow is really working hard this off-season like Quinn says, then I think he kills it in Quinn's defense.

@Beef - Worrilow has been working hard since he got here, he's gotten better every year, and he's still young, and his contract won't be too expensive because we gave him a chance when no one else would. He plays for our team because we saw potential in him, and he has become the leader of the defense.

He will be a solid rock for this franchise for a long time.

I hear ya, and I agree. But you have to understand that in Nolan's defense, Worrilow was not near as good as his large tackling numbers made him appear. The bulk of his tackles came 8 yards after the LoS, and most receivers he covered caught the ball virtually uncontested and often, and he missed as many tackles as he made.

But again, that's because Nolan's defense was terrible to the SILB. Worrilow had way too much space to cover and his "assignments" very often put him out of position to make plays closer to the LoS.

Bobby Wagner is a pro-bowl MIKE backer in Quinn's defense because he is actually given a chance to play on the ball instead play an assignment and then have to catch up to the ball if he's out of position. Worrilow will get the chance to play assignment-free football soon. And THEN we will see how good he really is.
