They were excellent. They have better chemistry than most on stage, and you can tell they really enjoy playing. Tremonti stole the show, but that wasn't a surprise. The set was about an hour and forty five minutes.
For me, they've always been in my second tier of bands. I have enjoyed all four ...

I went on a Tuesday night and it was fairly crowded, which was nice to see. Their whiskey selection is second to none in BR, and I really enjoyed the atmosphere. Hopefully it will do well because there's really nothing comparable in the area. They do need to work on getting a sign and spreading the ...

And the Eagles are 4-4 at home with no wins against playoff teams. They also have the weakest strength of schedule (tied with GB) in the NFC while the Saints have the strongest. There's no reason to see this as some improbable situation for the Saints. This is essentially a toss up game....

Thanks for posting. That has to be one of the worst games of Evans' career. Expect to see him back in the green next week. Jordan was incredible (6 qb hurries). It's nice to see the positive grade on J. Jenkins as well. ...

Correct. LSU is the favorite at +200. UNC and Oregon State are both at +250. Indiana, NC State, and Miss St. ...

I never claimed (or meant to imply) Nnamdi was garbage. I don't think his career is over and there is a chance he could regain some of the form he lost if he's in the right situation. I just want people to realize that he has not been performing anywhere near the level that he used to and whenever...

[quote]Take a look at our DBs last year and tell me they were better lol. I'll wait.
Did you even watch the Eagles play? And if so, did you watch the secondary closely? Greer played better than Nnamdi last year. The eyeball test, scouts, stats, and the advanced metrics at PFF all point ...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Nnamdi tidbit (comparing DB's) - dnwsr on 3/21/13 at 11:52 am|
So you use Nnamdi's stats from 2007-2010, but then pick out 2011 for Greer and Revis? I could also dig up some really nice stats for Brian Urlacher (and countless others) from 3-6 years ago. The bottom line is Nnamdi was a below average corner in Philly last year and wasn't much better the year be...

If he falls to 15, I think you're going to have a handful of teams regretting passing on him for years to come. I'd much rather have someone like Jones who has produced on the field than a workout warrior with "upside." Unless there is a serious medical issue, it'd be the best case scenario for the ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Patrick Robinson Blues - dnwsr on 2/3/13 at 2:01 pm|
Good catch on Porter. Robinson is actually two spots better (111th to 113th) so I guess the decision to let Porter go was justified :lol:
I don't think Robinson is a lost cause though. He has the physical tools to do well and hopefully will have more luck with the new scheme than he did with ...

Nope. We'd be screwed if the tie breakers stayed the same. There are quite a few teams ahead of us right now. However, I think the overall point is that after a nightmarish start, we're still in a legitimate position to make a run.
