[quote]Saints: Cornerback Will Blackmon -- The Saints handed CB Keenan Lewis a five-year, $25.5 million deal last offseason. They use a couple more corners like him, but it's hard to see GM Mickey Loomis shelling out another big contract to a corner. Corey White isn't a viable No. 2. Blackmon (6-foo...

[quote]ESPN.com's Mike Triplett lists free agent CB Captain Munnerlyn as a possible target of the Saints. The Saints are in need of a No. 2 corner behind Keenan Lewis and could look to steal away Munnerlyn from the Panthers. New Orleans currently lacks depth at cornerback after cutting Jabari Greer ...

I think they are all in good fun but it seems this year participation has been low.
This board has a steady following of posters and it seems the same names are nominated each year. And really my biggest issue is there are too many awards.
Filling out a ballot is tough because there seem to be...

I'm a huge U2 fan and have loved all their albums.
I downloaded their song Invisible in support of Red and it really lived up to my expectations of the band. They have a new album coming out in 2014, and if that song is any indicator, we could be looking at another All That You Can't Leave Behin...

I've watched this show from the beginning and each time I left wondering why I just wasted 30 minutes when nothing ever happens.
But this last episode was quite good. There's actually real story lines going on with Hanna and her book, Adam with his sister, Marnie and Ray hooking up, etc.

Picked up a few bottles at Trader Joe's yesterday. People were there buying cases of it so I figured why not. Just poured a glass of cab and after letting it breathe for a little while, it's not too bad for $2.99 a bottle.
I see the appeal :cheers:...

Like they do in college for targeting, they are throwing way too many flags thinking they saw helmet to helmet contact.
This penalty should be an automatic review so it doesn't cost the team 15 yards for a legal hit. ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| I think it's more likely we trade back than trade up - LSUZombie on 1/16/14 at 10:09 pm|
With the 27th pick, the Saints will have several players to choose from that will possibly be available in the 2nd round. I could see a team at the top of round 2 trying to get back into the 1st to jump another team, and the Saints would be good partners to trade with.
With the Ingram trade up a...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Will Graham command WR money this free agency? - LSUZombie on 1/12/14 at 3:17 pm|
I feel we'll offer him a contract better than Gronk's, and he'll reject it because of how we use him.
Does this worry anyone that he might choose to sit out due to wanting top 5 receiver money? I know we'll tag him, but that doesn't mean he'll report until he gets what's presumed to be fair.

Taj Boyd almost did it. The linebacker for Iowa actually did do it against LSU.
Why? Is it showboating? It's extremely stupid and every time I see it I think, that has to be the last time. The other athletes will see it and remember not to do it. And yet there are still athletes who insist on do...

I think most of us are a bit taken aback to just how "off" Jennings played yesterday. After seeing him come out and win the Arkansas game, some had expectations that were a little out of reach.
However, I believe most expected him to be a competent QB who though a true freshman, would make safe p...

Dad, a work friend of his, his son, and myself went fishing in Hopedale yesterday. 19 reds,12 trout, and a flounder were caught. We caught steady all day, and probably threw back about 20-30 redfish that were 15" and below. They'll be ready for the summer.
Great time with pops on the water, and ...

Thoughts on these? They seem a bit "edgy" considering the pro-liberal/atheist crowd that dominates the news. I can see a group making a fuss over them soon.
