FanPost

Here's a scary thought ...

I am not sure if this demotion of Sean Smith is going to last long, but what if Mike Nolan actually has the magic to coax Jason Allen into playing up to his ability? I haven't been a big fan of No.32's over the last few years (though I did think he looked really promising his rookie year), but if Mike Nolan actually has the skill to get JA to drop all the mental errors and other dumbass decisions, I think we may be on to something (and if so, good thing, because it only took FOUR FULL SEASONS).

And the same goes for Bobby Carpenter: if Nolan can somehow get him to sharpen up his mental approach to the game, we could have yet another strong LB on this roster.

If Nolan pulls this off, I say we deem him the "2006 first-round disappointment whisperer."
