Peter King has some nice things to say about the Saints rookies

quote:

Two impressive things about the Saints.

One: their rookie class. Kenny Stills, the fifth-round receiver from Oklahoma, made a great catch against the Texans down the left sideline on a bomb, and first-round safety Kenny Vaccaro has fit in seamlessly and shows good instincts around the line; he made a good tackle on a run blitz. Another first-year player (technically not a rookie), wideout Andy Tanner, made a fingertip touchdown catch from ex-Tulane quarterback Ryan Griffin. But I liked the two defensive linemen who shone Sunday: third-round tackle John Jenkins, who has some Wilfork-type moves for a 350-pound man, and undrafted free agent end Glenn Foster, who had a sack and a quarterback pressure. How is someone as athletic as Glenn Foster not drafted? Probably comes from a decided lack of production—four sacks in 23 college starts at Illinois—but he looked promising Sunday.

Two: defensive end Cameron Jordan, who had a sack and was buzzing around Matt Schaub for much of the first quarter. Jordan and J.J. Watt were the best big ends in the 2011 draft, and he looked to have some of Watt’s quickness, spin moves and strength Sunday. Defensive coordinator Rob Ryan plans to move Jordan—son of former NFL tight end Steve Jordan—around on the defense. Sort of like last year. “I was a Swiss Army knife last year,” he said after the game. “I played everywhere. I think that’s how I’ll be used again, which is fine. I can excel wherever they put me.” The Saints need the combination of Jordan, Junior Gallette and Akiem Hicks (and the rookies) to pressure the passer. It’s essential if Rob Ryan’s pressured defense is going to work.

Cam Jordan looks like he is going to have a monster year. I remember a thread that was started after his rookie season saying he was another first round bust that will have little impact. An example of why you should give a guy at least a few years to label him

Cam Jordan is going to be fine. For once our Dline may not be a weakness, our linebacking core not so much.

He is an overgrown fanboy with an inflated sense of self worth. He is a writer who cannot write. He is boring. He is a shitty tipper. He's lame. I could go on forever. I just don't like the guy.

I don't like him much either. I remember one year quite a while back that his big piece of fantasy advice was to consider danny wuerrfel as a good sleeper pick.

He's a fricking idiot. I don't think I know anyone with sense who thinks the guy is a good, smart football writer.

Just as a writer though. He sucks. It doesn't matter what topic he covers

He comes off like some fat doofus privileged fanboy who literally did nothing to be where he is, even though I'm sure that's not entirely accurate.

He certainly comes off as spoiled. Constantly complaining about shite that he likely gets for free.

He gets paid 6 figures possibly more to go to the best games and have unlimited access to the biggest stars. He stays in 5 star hotels, has his interns do all the work and eats at the nicest restaurant...then he devotes an entire section of his MMQB to what a shitty tipper he is and complains about the service. At what point, as a football fan, do you just go "man i have it made"

MMQB is a good concept, but when you have a self involved douche writing the column the novelty doesn't matter.

Which is why every Monday I read and laugh at the column on kissing Suzy kolber that makes fun of him. Seems like you do too

A friend alerted me to that column after 5+ years of complaining about that douche. We were in the car and I was talking massive shite and jokingly considering flattening him with my trusty 4runner. I pointed at him while doing this and he waved thinking I was a fan. frick me I should have creamed him

He picked the Saints to win the superbowl in 2007. That was dumb, especially for an objective non-fan.
