Reid did get two votes to be the draft pick. Alonso zero votes.
Also looks like our 3rd Rd Jenkins is contributing more than quite a few 1st & 2nd Rd DTs (like Floyd)....
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Peeking at Who the Saints didn't draft - blueslover on 12/10/13 at 4:57 pm|
We had quite a few polls and draft related dialogue as to who the #15 pick should be. Jarvis Jones was the consensus favorite that was passed by. We've been checking on him through the year and KV has definitely been the higher impact player thus far.
There were several other players who were a...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Harper: Fast Starts Key - blueslover on 12/10/13 at 3:54 pm|
This year, most of ya will prolly agree that there has been an inordinate amount of slow starts in games. That is, compared to what we have been used to. Good to see that is a recognized point. It's one thing that would be nice to see better in these last few games.

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Can't give Enough credit To our Defense - blueslover on 12/10/13 at 10:50 am|
lately I've been thinking about this year. I was contemplating if the defense is actually better than the offense. Like others have said, the losses might be on the offense more than the defense. It's an extraordinary turnaround. I wish there was an official OC & DC of the year award. RR would ...

nice italics on Vaccaro. He's coming on steadily and solidly.
More kudos to Corey White. Last night might have been the best game I've seen him play. What a score that would be if he turns out to be a serviceable #3 or even #2!

there are no gimme games in the NFL. That said, I'll take an away game with Kellen Clemens at QB with our D anytime.
They're 2-5 since he took over. In the two wins he was a combined 19 of 38. After 38 NFL games and starting 18 of them his completion rate is 52.2%. 12 TDs & 18 INTs lifetime....
