Yeah...has he even played this preseason? If he has he hasn't done anything to catch my eye. I wonder if he might end up on the chopping block.

It's not like anyone on the defense put up much in the way of numbers, but all zeros is never good.

On the other hand, Greenwood almost made the play on the TD pass to Edge in the zone where Petey was responsible. He saw the hole Petey lleft and filled as quickly as he could.

He had three solo tackles and played pretty well against Chicago.

I think Diles is being groomed to be his replacement for next season.

Yeah...That was actually a pretty decent effort out of Morlon...

I think a more physically gifted player would have knocked it down....But it's definitely not a knock on him for not making it....

Haven't seen a lot of Zach Diles to say I like him as the starting WLB...I think he does some good things out there, but I do know that I want Morlon replaced...

I don't like his game too much...

Is it sad that the only tackles I seem to remember, without looking at notes, are Dunta's?

Default Re: Fair is fair : Morlon Greenwood

While Morlon hasn't been spectacular for the money he's being paid he hasn't been horrid either. Somewhere in the middle but i think the biggest knock we'll all agree on is his salary. I don't see him getting replaced this year but from the sounds of it Diles is going to be pushing for PT and whomever loses between Clark and Anderson will as well.

I think his job is relatively safe this year with inexperience at his spot but team depth is catching up with him. Next year it might be a case of either take a paycut and compete for your spot or say goodbye.

No...I just think he is a bad ball player....

Yes it has something to do with his salary, but I don't believe him to be a quality starter on a good defense...

He's not that good a LB IMHO....

I couldn't disagree more...he is wildly overpaid and is one of the last Casserly disaster contracts still on the roster with a cap hit of $4,664,000. There is no way he is the second best player on the team.

I would take Timmons, Willis, or even Woodley over him personally.

I'm not defending the guy and there is definately no way I even came close to saying he is the second best player on the team.

I was stating that for the money he's definately not as spectacular as he should be. But let's be honest it's not like his numbers and play have been completely terrible either. Just not enough to warrant his salary but hey we've had several players seal their retirement off of Casserly calls.

His job is relatively safe this year but next year i think it's going to go down as i said before.

Do you guys really watch Morlon ?

The guy is a bad starting LB....

He is about to be on the downside of his career and the guy has never gotten more than 56 solos in a season and it's not like he hasn't been playing...he's been starting games since he was a rookie...

Racking up a lot of asst. tackles 7 yards down field is what I call: unimpressive

Tad bit of an overstatement since he was a starter on D's that ranked 4th and 2nd in the league during his tenure in Miami. Definitely could be upgraded, but not such a hack that the D can't be good with him on it.

I don't understand how that disputes what I said...

What does that have to do with him individually being a quality player ?

If he were playing like he is playing now on a bad defense AKA a second string defense he'd be a quality player...

Just because a defense can be successful with him on it doesn't mean he's a quality starter on that defense..

Timmons has been injured all preseason - some think because he showed up to camp out of shape, others that he's not tough enough to play through pain.
