| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Would you trade Brees for Luck? - LSUFreek on 7/27/14 at 2:07 am|
When the Saints signed Drew Brees as a FA, I still wanted Leinart as their draft pick.
When the Saints let Joe Horn walk, I thought it was premature and that he still had some left in the tank.
When the Saints traded up for a punter in Moorestead, I was livid.
When the Saints passed on Jarv...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Dylan Moses ran a 4.39 today!!! - LSUFreek on 7/24/14 at 5:28 pm|
4.39 RBs are really nice but not unusual. Doesn't guarantee a high pick like it used to.
Whereas, a 4.39 DE or LB, maybe at 6-4 to 6-6...now that's sick!
You would be talking the #1 overall NFL draft pick on measurables alone....

Only pull for a team to beat another team that gives the Saints a playoff/divisional seeding edge.

However, I do pull for players I like to have good games/good seasons when they are not playing the Saints....

I don't know the specifics of Donte's recruitment, but in limited TV exposure at the Opening, I was not impressed.
In the semi-final, he was playing defense and the opponents were on a last second drive, and when they threw his way, Donte gave up a huge 40+ reception. They clock ran out the oppon...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: NFL Top 100 - LSUFreek on 7/9/14 at 9:46 pm|
I saw last night on the Top Ten preview show, they were ranking the best nicknames in the NFL.
Shady McCoy was #1 with Megatron right behind him.
Drew came in 4th, and although I've heard of "Cool" Brees before, I thought he's most often called Breesus down here.
But I have never heard of J...

I'm pretty sure both make it, considering there's one TE left unnamed and 3 QBs (Brees, Brady, Manning) but I got a feeling they will only be mentioned in the #10-thru-#6 spots.
Curious to see if the players put Jimmy over Drew....

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Random rookie free agent question - LSUFreek on 6/19/14 at 11:16 pm|
Before Goody re-signed, I did a 53-man roster during a break at work with a co-worker. We both got a "sleeper" roster pick.
He picked Brandon Coleman. I picked Armstrong.
My pick was partly based on need/depth at center at the time, but I really believed he could be one of those guys who makes...

I seriously believe Khiry Robinson & Lorig will be a monster tandem.
Robinson won't put up Doug Martin-like numbers in our RBC offense, of course, but Khiry's style is best suited to take advantage of Lorig's blocking, and I think it will be a lot of fun to watch this year.

Personally, I don't think Cooks will play the slot, not that he isn't interchangeable there considering his skills as you have said.
But you've acknowledged on record that he is arguably a Steve Smith clone and Smith isn't a slot guy, despite the size & quickness you'd think would have Smith ceme...

Nah just over the stat whoring I used to use to measure success.
Great offenses are nice to watch, but even if the Saints match or better the numbers from 2011, who cares about the stats if they get sent home in the playoffs again.

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Forecasting Saints top 3 WR's catches and yards - LSUFreek on 5/19/14 at 2:57 pm|
Predicting stats seem so hollow to me after witnessing some of the greatest offenses in NFL history ultimately fail like the Saints did in 2011, the Pats in 2007, and Denver in 2013.
The only number that counts is 2 as in the Saints' 2nd Lombardi Trophy.
Tell me the Saints in the playoffs wil...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: SIAP: 5 Star 2017 Rb/Lb Dylan Moses NFTC-Video - LSUFreek on 5/17/14 at 9:22 pm|
If the draft taught you anything, don't play RB, especially if you have the tools to play LB or DE.
The difference between where the first RB Bishop Sankey went as compared to where DE Clowney & LB Mack were drafted should make Dylan never want to take another offensive snap.
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Full Rookie Camp List - LSUFreek on 5/17/14 at 8:39 pm|
Damn. Outside of Coleman, Strozier's you tube highlights at CB got me most excited.
He may be super short, but he covered tall TEs and batted or broke up catches. But more than anything, he made plays all over the field, like a poor mans shorter Tyrann Mathieu.
So we bring him in & he gets hi...
