| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Louis Delmas visiting the Saints today - Geauxgurt on 2/27/14 at 3:40 pm|
Ryan likes to you use a lot of 3 safety formations. He did it early on with Harper/Jenkins/Vacarro and later with Bush/Jenkins/Vacarro. We need to replace both Harper and Jenkins, so I don't think signing a guy like Delmas eliminates the chance at a player like Pryor if he is available. Also, the Sa...

BS? 4 of the surgeries were due to screw ups in an earlier surgery, but keep acting like Gronk is somehow injury prone. Up until the end of the 2012 season, he was a healthy player throughout his caree...

[quote]Yes...because Gronk's deal is two years old.
If both were healthy and up for contract, Gronkowski would be the guy who should get the better deal. [/quote]
So if Gronk is worth more, than Graham should'nt get much more than Gronk's deal. It's not like his deal is 5 years old or somethin...

Ok, so given the supposed gap in Jimmy and the Saints for his new contract, let's see what everyone thinks in this comparison. I think it is fair to say that both Gronk and Jimmy have had great QBs throwing to them, so that would be a wash. I also think it is very clear to anyone with a brain that G...

I don't get the uproar. If you are running a private business, you should be able to serve who you like.
There is a huge difference between discrimination based on skin color (something that is evident to everyone) and sexual orientation (something that is not evident to everyone).

Kind of hits on a lot of things that we've said. Redundancy is a killer here. I disagree with the writer though. I'd keep Rivers of Roberts any day. Rivers offers the slashing ability off the bench as well as solid defense unlike Roberts who is a terrible defender and inefficient offensive player. Y...

Again, I love Graham as a player, but he isn't the best TE in the game right now. He may be the best receiving TE, but that's it. The guy can't block to save his life, is one of the least physical TEs in the league (despite his macho act) and gets shut down by physical defenses.

Demps' time here and his trades have been equivalent to multiple personality disorder. That said, no GM is going to have a 100% positive trade record. There are just too many factors and sometimes you have to make bad deals like shedding salary.

It is going to be the next two first round picks of the team in question, but the team owning the rights to the player can accept less if they so choose and agree to it.
