Steelers Versus Panthers – Second Half Notes And Observations

By Matthew Marczi If I am not mistaken, Brian Rolle did not play much of any special teams in the second half. My belief is that he did not have to, and that otherwise he would have. Chris Carter looked his most active of the entire preseason against the weaker competition offered in the final […] Steelers Versus Panthers – Second Half Notes And Observations is a post from: Steelers...

Now, as the Steelers head into their final preseason game Thursday night against the Carolina Panthers, Rolle is on the outside of [...] LB Brian Rolle Might Not Be Special...

Brian Rolle reacts to his release via Twitter

Social media has taken much of the mystery out of professional sports. While we’ve imagined what athletes must think and feel as they experience some of the unpleasantness of the business, we can witness the reaction in real time. Some display anger. Some grow silent. Brian Rolle reacted with a display of faith in himself and a higher being.   We can all imagine how having an...

Eagles Release Rolle, Add LB

Just didn’t cut it: LB Brian Rolle released by Philadelphia Eagles, Adrian Moten signed

Eagles’ Brian Rolle to lose his starting job?

Brian Rolle was a starting linebacker for the Eagles last season, but given how poorly the Eagles’ linebackers played as a whole, that’s not necessarily a good thing. In fact, the Eagles have already added two new starters in their linebacking corps this offseason, DeMeco Ryans and Mychal Kendricks, and Rolle remains the only incumbent starter, at least for now. According to...

Philadelphia Eagles select Mychal Kendricks, Grade A

The Philadelphia Eagles got one of the best players on the board and filled an immediate need with this selection. I’m not sure if Mychal Kendricks will play weak-side or strong-side linebacker, but he could be an upgrade at either position. Considering Brian Rolle’s breakout year in 2011, the strong-side may be the best place for him.

Brian Rolle Should Be Key Player for Eagles on Sunday

I haven’t followed the Dolphins all that closely, but I think the recent play of Reggie Bush has really helped the team find some success. He’ll never be what people thought he could be coming out of college, but he can be an extremely effective back when utilized properly. One thing that you can’t deny about Bush is his speed. He’s fast. It’s that simple. The good...
