| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Different Approach to Drafting - blueslover on 3/3/15 at 2:20 pm|
It will be interesting to see if the type of picks change with new personnel in the draft room. Along with many here, I would like to see a bit more of game ready players. That is, less players we might call a project or developmental. Every pick after Cooks was in that direction last year IMO.

good point from Triplett...
Concerning to me is that the team ranked 30th & 26th the last two years as well. Many of us have questioned why there has been no coaching change for special teams the past few years.
Here's an eye opener... Sproles (with a history as a dynamic return guy) average...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Nicks Follows Bentley - blueslover on 8/6/14 at 8:17 am|
Has there ever been two such good players (both O-line) that left one team for such big money and then produced so little as a result of staph infection?
The Bucs agreed to a $3-million injury settlement with OG Carl Nicks, according to salary cap information filed with the league.

[b]Worst Contract: Curtis Lofton[/b]
I could easily see giving the nod to either of the Guards, who have both gone through restructures and are near the top of the food chain, but both are higher quality players and have already made it through a majority of their contracts. While Curtis Lofton is ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Most Improved Player day 3 edition - blueslover on 7/27/14 at 5:15 pm|
- If I had a vote for most improved player very early in training camp, it would be wide receiver Nick Toon. Physically, Toon just looks the part and now is finally starting to play the part. He had a tremendous day Saturday and followed it up with another solid day today. More than anything else, T...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Cooks Selection Reviews - blueslover on 5/9/14 at 2:32 pm|
GM Mickey Loomis trades up and goes after Oregon State speedy wideout Brandin Cooks. Sean Payton and Drew Brees implement so many moving parts to their offensive schemes, Cooks gives them a wideout that can stretch defenses and jet down the field. Cooks' 4.3 speed gives the QB so much room to fit th...

there's several guys right around 58 I like a lot:
