Ogletree or Goodson, who wears the Mic.

Des51 : 5/5/2018 11:48 am
Listening to a Dave-Te' Thomas podcast with Ed valentine of Big Blue View, Dave-Te states Ogletree's team mates feel he had a down year last year because he wore the microphone helmet. They felt it slowed him down. Dave thinks Goodson should wear it and let Ogletree play his game. Ed informed Dave that's not what the Giants have been doing in camp. Ogletree still wearing it. I hope the Giants figure how to go about this.
Definitely Ogletree

Ogletree is the leader of the LB group which is another reason why I loved the trade as he was a team captain with the Rams on a star studded defense.
100% Ogletree

You are all gonna love this guy..

I think he's gonna be our best LB since ... along long time ago. I think for 3-4 years this guy will outperform Pierce, Barrow, Boley and all others since the new millennium
How would the speaker slow a player down?

First of all, there's no microphone - and that goes for the QB as well - so there's no conversation happening, just listening. Secondly, the speaker is cut off with 15 seconds remaining on the play clock (or, presumably, when the ball is snapped), so I'm not understanding how it would make Ogletree slower to react to what's happening on the field.
Ogletree

I hope Goodson can stay healthy.
Ogletree will be on the field in nickel/dime...

Goodson won't. Tree gets the green dot. Simple logic.
right

Goodson is not an every down LB while Ogletree certainly is

I'm 31 and get that reference. Don't tell me I'm already considered an old timer!

Ogletree

is the 3-down MIKE.
Ogletree as the 3-Down MIKE?  
Ivan15 : 5/5/2018 5:14 pm : link
Obviously, he won't be the MIKE in a traditional 3-4. Part of the advantage of the hybrid defense is to confuse the QB about who the MIKE is on each play. When in a 4-3, if Goodson is in the game, Ogletree will be OLB.

For sure, though, Ogletree will be a 3-Down LB.

Oh, that's right, you've decided that Carter is secretly going to be groomed to play ILB.

No, he'll be the MIKE in a 34 just like he was in STL. Check out the comments Gettleman made after they traded for him. He used those exact words - 3 down MIKE LB. There's only so many in the league and they like his ability to be the field general.
