| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Good news for Saints and HBs in FA - bonethug0108 on 12/31/14 at 6:29 pm|
The good news about Ingram becoming a FA this year is that the market is flooded with comparable HBs who are 28 and under. I was worried that his price might go up because of his age and how shallow the HB FA class was last year, but this is a class flooded with young HBs with potential.
So even ...

The Saints have 7 or more wins every year(except the Katrina Season) since 2000.
That includes 3 good seasons(one 10-6 and two 11-5 years), and 2 great ones(two 13-3 years). Four of those were under Payton.
People are quick to forget we went 7-9 and 8-8 in back to back years under Payton right...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| 8 points up in fantasy. Which Saints back to play? PPR league. - bonethug0108 on 12/15/14 at 6:11 pm|
I'm up 8 and I have to choose between PT and Ingram(he has Stills). It's standard espn scoring except for 1 point per reception.
PT usually kills in chicago, but if we're up we'll see a bunch of Ingram. If we're down we'll see PT in more on passing downs.
What say ye Saints Talk?...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Why Hurry Up? - bonethug0108 on 10/30/14 at 8:59 pm|
Something I've always wondered about us is why don't we run the hurry up more often? We're one of the best teams in the league(and have been for a while) at scoring in the last 2 minutes of a half.
Does Payton NEED that much control over the game? Brees is more than capable of running things from...
