[quote]WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. -- New Orleans Saints offensive tackle Zach Strief made a bold proclamation Monday, saying, "I think we can be as good as a running team as we have ever been."
And running back Pierre Thomas talked in a similar excited fashion about the run game the other day...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Interesting tidbit about training camp and our road record under Patyon. - Patrick O Rly on 7/27/14 at 10:17 pm|
I forgot where I heard this, so forgive me, but they brought up the point that Payton's teams have been historically good on the road, especially in the early years, which happened to be when they held their training camp at Millsaps.
Now early in OTA's they've been busting out the noise machines...

I feel that we wouldn't have traded up to draft the kid unless he was ready to go. He played in a pro-style system in college. He has the rare combination of measurables and production (insane production). When I watch the kid, I feel like he's rather polished.
I think right away we can fast pas...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Place your bets: training camp dark horse and surprise cut? - Patrick O Rly on 7/21/14 at 11:08 am|
Dark horse: George Uko.
Everyone on the d-line from last year has returned except for Tom Johnson, who signed with the Vikings, so if we carry the same amount of linemen again, there's a roster spot open.
George Uko has a quick burst and is disruptive, but he needs to work on his technique. ...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| PFF Position Progression: Safeties. - Patrick O Rly on 7/18/14 at 8:23 am|
So PFF has been charting player progression at each position from their rookie year on. They give a best and a worst case scenario, and also chart the average progression of players at the position.
This may be beating a dead horse, but it's a dead period for football news.

Does he sign a long term deal before tomorrow's deadline?
Does he file an appeal in hopes of playing this year under the wide receiver tags? He has until 4 pm EST today to file it, or so I've heard.

These questions are answered by the blog writers, who may have also come up with the question. They tend to be a bit homerish. Anyway, the logic behind the answer to Carolina's question is really flawed.
