| New Orleans Saints Talk|| The best part about having a historically bad defense last year.... - Zoltan on 5/3/13 at 8:54 pm|
Yeah, the obvious answer is that we can't get any worse. But as a result of that fact, coupled with the fact that we had no head coach last year, it makes every defensive player we sign unbelievably exciting.
I'm not sure if it's because it's a combo of knowing we can't get worse, and the fa...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Now that the draft is over, any vet cap casualties? Day 1 LT starter? - Zoltan on 4/27/13 at 9:29 pm|
We drafted a LT and that's good, not so sure Armstead can come in an be an immediate starter, not necessarily any better that Brown at the moment. That remains to be seen. I'm not so certain we have our starting LT on the roster yet. Cap space has got to be pretty tight at the moment, I'm sure Vacar...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Anyone else still want another OT? or do we go Front 7/ WR here - Zoltan on 4/27/13 at 1:25 pm|
I'm happy with the Armstead pick, but Strief has shown he's struggled. We still have Brown, Harris, Jones, Smith, but I honestly think all the competition the better. Chris Faulk is still on the board, and I view Armstead as more of a project. If Faulk comes back healthy he can be an immediate start...

Really don't care about it for defensive players, (Mo Claiborne - 4/50 ...) but for offense it has to have some significance if you're in complicated system. Wonder if this will have any significant impact on his draft stock with all the potential trade scenarios surrounding him.

Assuming at 15 Fisher, Joeckel, and Johnson are all off the board, and you are told the Saints will 100% draft a tackle within the first 5 rounds, who do you want them to take the most? (It could be at 15, the result of a tradeback in the first, a 2nd if there's a tradeback, 3rd/ 4th, 5th whenever.)...

Leonhard is a backup and a specialist. I don't think that he is coming in to compete for the job. If anyone will it will be Rafael Bush- both him and IAQ played well down the stretch.
I[b] think this signing may indicate there is a good chance that the Saints may be MORE likely to draft a top saf...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Do you seen anyone notable getting cut post draft? - Zoltan on 4/7/13 at 2:49 pm|
We have about 2 mill in cap space as of the last check, and our draft picks if everything remains unchanged will command about $3.6 (figure based off of someone who did the math a while back, can't find the specific thread. Think it was Thrillho or Bduhon). I'm sure the FO can work it out. But, is t...

He was the Ravens back-up LT to Oher and played in all 4 of the Ravens playoff games and did well. He is a free agent right now. His salary was $3.5 mill last year. Now he's been in the league for 11 years, is 33, and has had some character issues in the past. But at 6'8 354, he may be someone we ca...

I know it's very early on and I have faith in our FO, Payton, and Drew, but at some point you have to be realistic about your competition. 2 years ago I would have said it was Saints or Packers no matter what.
