    LOL cue the rueage:

    First play vs WAS - notice how Ware was held there by two lineman?

    Second play vs TB - look at that rush by Victor Butler, if he would have squared up and wrapped better that would be a sack.

    Third play vs ARI - maybe someone can do a football 101 on "setting the edge" for those that question Spencer's abilities. That was a textbook move BTW.

    The last play vs ARI - What an outstanding play there...those that hate Spencer need to learn how the game is played.

    But, but, but ... Spencer sucks 'cause I read somewhere he was a wasted first round pick ... lol. Not unhappy in the least to see Spencer remaining with us, assuming he signs the franchise tag/tender. Still hoping for a Mario Williams FA addition, all the same.

    They will dismiss it as hype or lies. What does Matt Eberflus know anyway?

    Amazing plays by Spencer against Rex Grossman, Kevin Kolb and Josh Freeman. I'm 100% sold.

    Wow. An assistant coach supporting his player. Stop the presses. We have news here.

    For an encore, somebody ask Garrett if Jerry meddles.

    Where was Spencer in the final 5 games of the season? He was a non-factor.

    Three step drops and wide open wide receivers. It effected Ware also.

    RS is right in that you have a position coach talking up his guy. Not exactly rare. Rob Ryan said this defense was the best he'd ever coached before game 1....

    Spencer doesn't just suck. Anyone saying he does should be summarily dismissed same as guys saying he is great. Both takes are foolish. He is a solid, average type guy.

    In the 1st play two things jump off screen at you. 1. We are in a 4-2-5 set (Spencer is 4-3 DE with no worry about run stopping here) and the TE doesn't even breathe on Spencer. Spencer gets the RT single block but beats him with good technique. BUT that technique pushed him well past the QB and he has to circle back. Ware on the other hand gets doubled, splits it and is in the QB's face almost instantly. He doesn't get a sack but is the reason the QB moves. Ware is truly an elite pass rusher. Still excellent play by Spencer to chase the QB down and wonderful hatchet job on that arm to cause a fumble.

    Play 2: Great show of Spencer's speed and another excellent rip of the ball. BUT he wasn't blocked at all. 3 guys tagged the DE and no one touched Spencer. He was the only totally free player along the front.

    Play 3. Solid run play but he was very close to letting that RB get outside him. That was probably not his best effort of the year.

    Play 4. Nice job knocking down the FB and after that just solid overall play. All that said slow, not so agile Keith Brooking was right behind him as he hits the QB. I am not going to get as excited about that play as Eberflus did.

    Not a bad 4 play highlight reel and it showcases a nice mix of Spencer's talents.

    But keep in mind Dallas may very well have just tagged Spencer to delay his free agency a couple weeks not a year.

    The same could be said for just about every defensive player the last half of the season...

    Yes, very typical. Some posters can't help themselves. Imagine, he knows more then the coach even after the coach showed you why they like the player in numerous clips. Yep, very typical and expected. Wow!!!

    And I agree with all that. A solid, average, JAG type of guy.

    Not good enough for the impact position he plays.

    Spencer is a good OLB and football player.

    He's not average. He's not great.

    And he's hardly the weak link on our defense. We've got bigger fish to fry.

    I think he can be very good and very bad at any given time! It's the effort and attitude that will make or break a guy with the physical tools to play the game and excel!

    Does he have the competitive attitude and does he always put out the best effort?
