did I ever pick the right year to move out of the country or what?
Defense- the 2014 version is a lot closer to the 2012 debacle than the 2013 bounceback year. Wondering if it was a lot of scheming that made the D so much better. When it is scheme, in the second year teams have the tape all fi...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Interesting fact - blueslover on 11/12/14 at 7:25 am|
Those facts that show the narrow margin of parity in the NFL. Sad to say this year's team reminds of Dallas recently. I counted this as perhaps the best Saints team ever "on paper". There is enough talent. Payton is still a good coach. This year it seems they are going for it ala killer instinc...

Concerning to me is that the team ranked 30th & 26th the last two years as well. Many of us have questioned why there has been no coaching change for special teams the past few years.
Here's an eye opener... Sproles (with a history as a dynamic return guy) average...

didn't read the thread but after watching games across NFL Sunday Ticket yesterday I concluded that there is a lot more hope to this season than I thought. Nobody looks THAT strong or good. If the panthers lose at Green Bay and the Saints win, we're tied for 1st.
Guess I might have to pull out ...

good discussion, looking at the PFF 2013 numbers his monster ATL game sticks out at +6.8 Those numbers certainly boosted his overall score. I agree that he doesn't measure up to last year by the eyeball test. My question is, maybe we had an over inflated view of what he actually did last year? ...

what I liked most was that 3 of the 4 breakout player predictions are Saints. I applaud the front office for getting the defense both younger and better at the same time. There may be as many Saints on the brink of becoming All Pro at one time as I have ever seen....

props to the OP for trying, just doesn't know player values. McCown could end up cut and no one even picks him up. More value in Griffin for potential than a lifetime backup.

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Nicks Follows Bentley - blueslover on 8/6/14 at 8:17 am|
Has there ever been two such good players (both O-line) that left one team for such big money and then produced so little as a result of staph infection?
The Bucs agreed to a $3-million injury settlement with OG Carl Nicks, according to salary cap information filed with the league.
