Is Anthony Spencer as bad of a OLB as fans make him out to be? The answer is no. Many fans are down on Anthony Spencer, and the truth is their anger in his production is unfounded.
I find that many casual fans, who don’t research the sport, get angry at Spencer for not putting up “DeMarcus Ware-like Numbers.”
The truth is, you just don’t get that type of performance from the majority of starting LOLBs.
Check it out. The PDF file is available HERE, and shows Anthony Spencer vs other LOLBs (in the 3-4 Defenses) around the NFL.
The truth is that Anthony Spencer is better than fans give him credit for, and LOLB is not a position that needs to be immediately addressed.
Lets save the draft picks and FA transactions for some DBs, a few OGs, a viable C, a DE and possibly a NT.
Fans are making a position of need where there isn’t one.
