Default The Offcial Start Spencer Larsen! Don't Draft Rey Rey Thread

First of all he Tallied 131 tackles to lead the PAC-10 in 2007.As everyone knows he played FB and MLB in one game the man has Heart!Yea Maualuga had 96 tackles, 37 tackles for loss, 4 interceptions (2 for TDs), -2 fumble recoveries and 1 kickoff return for a touchdown in his senior year.But the man Scored really low Wonderlic with 15, giving the middile linebacker has to be asked to call the Defense.By the way Larsen scored 25/33 on his Wonderlic last year.
Larsen has the Football IQ and Heart to play in the old school 3-4.

So I say Start Larsen and don't draft Maualuga

I don't want Maualuga, that's for sure. If Larsen wins the starting spot, fine.

The reason I like the guy is because he reminds me a LOT of Al Wilson. Early in his career Wilson was known for making bad reads, getting caught on misdirections and missing assignments...he was basically over aggressive. Wilson also wasnt very good in coverage. I see a lot of those qualities in Rey and thats not so good for the immediate future.
However, the real key for Rey would be how he utilizes that playmaker's mentality to his advantage and tones down his initial reads...but he brings something to the MLB position that we havent seen in a very long time: FIRE and AGGRESSIVENESS...I think we can all agree that no matter how much we like or dislike DJ WIlliams, he just isnt a fiery type of guy..neither is Champ....what Rey may lack in smarts he brings in intensity and I think its something that we could use a pick for at #18...

hopefully he's not a Vernon Gholston and can learn defensive schemes...

i agree. i didn't want Maualuga before all the draft process began. i don't even think he was the best of the USC trio. i would want Matthews and Cushing before him.

start Larsen and draft Matthews to get Boss off the field.

I love Larsen, he is a warrior and an overachiever. He has smarts, instincts and hustle, some of the most important features in an ILB.

Yea i see what your saying we was missing that Captain on Defense but thats why we bought in B-Dawk,although B-Dawk will only be here for like 2 years I think a young guy like Woodyard can step up in take that "Fire" Place.

I love Larsen. Larsen is a backup/ST guy. I would love for him to be more, but he isn't. Rey would bring attitude back to this defense, and RB would be a little less calm between the tackles. I don't like Cushing or Mathews. Cushing is an injury waiting to happen, and he is maxed out on potential. Mathews is a rush LB that doesn't sack the QB.

Almost forgot, those 2 along with dumervil (OLB) probably have 3 of the 4 starting positions on lock down.

There's no way Andra Davis is better than Larsen I think Larsen beats him out in Training Champ,The only thing i can recall on Davis was his Eye Gouge on Willis McGahee,Larsen hits hard and has the smarts.

ummmmm,,, I probably shouldn't be on this thread for obvious reasons, however I do want to say I think it's a win win whatever we do as long as Larsen gets the nod over rey. I think Larsen is a Bad A$@ however I also think Rey Rey is too,,, so I'm in content as long as our defense just improves!!!

The only way Andra Davis is not better than Spencer, is that he is injury prone now, so relax, we will more than likely get a healthy dose of Larsen all season.

I don't get it. Why the Rey hate? So he isn't the brightest bulb. I couldn't care less. He is the scary SOB in the middle that wants nothing more than to rip your head off. Davis isn't the answer, neither is Larsen. I am more confident that Doom and Moss will take care of the Russ LB position than I am that Davis or Larsen will take care of the MLB.

I just think our defense last year reflected a lot of the teams internal problems as it pertains to intensity and willing your way to wins....a lot of teams get some bad breaks here and there during a game but have those players who keep everybody up....not just by yelling or chest bumping but just pure fire...

for example: QB throws a pick inside our 30....last year this was an automatic 7 points on the board for the other team....and it was like everyone on the defense knew it...

guys like B-Dawk and Rey don't take the field with that attitude......i

Relax as i can be,I just don't have high hopes for Andra Davis I like the signing in all but as you said the guy gets hurt in misses tackles.Larsen is better trust me.

Playing Devils Advocate, i like Cushing the most cause he can play all over, but WHOEVER comes to DEN to play LB is gonna vastly improve!
Nolan is well known for taking LBs and making them pro bowl calibur players, so i am not concerned in the least if any one of the USC players comes to DEN, i know he will be good with Nolan helping him every step of the way.
I would love to get Larry English too cause i think he is a really good fit at JACK in a 3-4 Nolan system, but he can play in a 4-3 as a DE as well.

How about the official Don't draft Rey-Rey simply because we don't need LaVar Arrington on this team regardless of Larsen?

I am confident that Nolan knows what he wants, and will take the best guy. Also check out Sidbury. He is bigger and faster than English.
