| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Who are some low-key FA's y'all would like to sign? - Zoombop on 1/7/15 at 6:01 pm|
For the most part when free agency threads pop up on here, the top guys are brought up. While I wouldn't mind seeing Justin Houston and Mike Iupati in black and gold, I don't think we should take the Byrd route again. Here are several guys that are solid players that could come at relatively inexpen...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Are the Saints and fans overrating how good this team has been? - Zoombop on 12/23/14 at 6:55 pm|
Since the Super Bowl, we have won the NFC South just once, won only 2 playoff games and missed the post-season twice. It doesn't scream dominance or dynasty to me, but for some reason, we seem to think that it's been just that. I include myself in that. What do y'all think?
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Free Agent Cornerbacks - Zoombop on 12/22/14 at 12:57 am|
Our track record for drafting corners is awful, that much is obvious (see: Malcolm Jenkins, Patrick Robinson, Johnny Patrick, Stanley Jean-Baptiste, Corey White). However, we have proven to be much better at bringing in free agents at the position and having them not only excel here, but also come a...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Let's play GM... - Zoombop on 12/8/14 at 11:32 am|
Okay, let's say that the saints continue to play the up and down game that they've been doing all season and finish the year with a 6-10 record and the No. 9 pick in the draft. Tell me your first roster move(s), 1st round selection, and coaching changes. Here's mine:
1. Roster moves: Extend Drew ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| MULTIPLE Saints are in decline - Zoombop on 10/5/14 at 8:54 pm|
I know the popular thing to talk about is the idea that Drew has lost arm strength. I don't believe that, although I'll agree his timing and accuracy on deep throws are off, but those are fixable.
The real issue is decision making under pressure. It's not a secret (though something most people s...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Cody Latimer Rising Which WR Will Fall? - Zoombop on 4/29/14 at 10:03 am|
Cody Latimer is looking more and more like a top 20 pick in this draft. Too raw for my taste, though he certainly looks the part and was a very good receiver in college.
But I think this will make one of either Marqise Lee, Cooks, or Beckham fall into our laps at #27 as Latimer has the size/spee...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Draft Junkies: Rate Your Top 5 Prospects by Position But Really Just RB - Zoombop on 4/17/14 at 1:14 pm|
I know some of us have quietly been building our own Big Boards, so now with the draft a few weeks away I wanna see what they look like. Yes, I understand that ST has made a collective Big Board but this is a little different. Here's mine, now with just running backs!

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| USC C Marcus Martin - Zoombop on 4/1/14 at 12:36 pm|
So I sat down today on my lunch break to watch a couple of Marcus Martin games and I came away both very impressed and slightly disappointed.
The first game I watched was against Notre Dame where he was consistently matched up against Louis Nix and occasionally Stephon Tuitt, two potential 1st r...

[quote]Rodger Saffold - T - Free Agent
Ex-Rams G/T Rodger Saffold has failed his physical with the Raiders, voiding his five-year, $42.5 million contract.
He's once again a free agent. It's to the point where we just feel bad for GM Reggie McKenzie, who is simply out of his dep...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Hypothetical: Jimmy Graham or Darrelle Revis? - Zoombop on 3/10/14 at 8:41 pm|
With the Bucs potentially releasing Revis, he could soon be a free agent. There's no way the Saints will sign him, but I'm looking to have a little fun. Who would you rather have at $12mil a year, assuming that's how much Jimmy wants and Revis would take less than he's making now, Graham or Revis? ...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Ideal Time to Extend Cam and Junior - Zoombop on 2/28/14 at 11:32 am|
In light of the news of the salary cap increases, this should be the ideal time to extend Cam Jordan and Junior Galette.
Both of them really had breakout years, and are about to hit their primes. We have reason to believe that both players will be even better next year and in the following years...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Draft Hypothetical - Zoombop on 2/18/14 at 3:57 pm|
Say Zach Martin falls to No. 27, and the top safeties and corners are off the board. Would you select him and have him compete at LG or RT? Maybe even C.
If he shows well enough at the guard spot, which many people seem to believe he can be an All-Pro guard, would you put him there and make Grubb...
