re: Draft Stock Up & Down for Saints Prospects - ulsaint
Matthews from Vandy would be perfect and fits the mold of the team. I wouldn't even mind him in the first. Love Verret too. I don't see us using picks on guys like Benjamin or Roby. Those are Haslett picks. Also wouldn't touch a guy in the first with two ACL injuries. Too risky and too much t...

There is no chance Benjamin is even a consideration. A 23 year old sophomore? We never take questionable character guys, especially in the first. Plus he sounds too dumb to grasp the offense....

re: The Market for RBs--in case we're looking to address the position - ulsaint
I can almost guarantee the Saints won't pickup a FA RB unless it's for dirt cheap right before camp. And they won't draft one - at least until the 5th. Our best RBs are always rookie FAs. Pierre, Ivory, Robinson... The drafted ones tend to suck. Bum from Ohio St., Bush (doesn't suck but not wo...

Anyone ever tried this? Sounds unbelievably cool but just wondering if there's a catch... $9.95 to basically build your own ETF or follow someone elses. No management fee (other than what's already charged by an ETF). $4.95 to sell individual stocks within the Motif you build. https://www.moti...

Buy and hold? Keep % in cash for crashes? - ulsaint
It seems to me that timing is pretty much a fool's errand - at least for me. I don't understand the billion different variables to spot trends and it seems like there's always an "exception" to why this time is different, etc. So if I just accept that I can't time anything and the more I read, th...

So what are the board's opinions. If the correction is coming, do you hold what you have and buy more? What are your thoughts on this if you're not close to retirement. Obviously, you move to less risky investments closer to retirement but I'm mid-30s and thinking of just riding it out and buying mo...

You can't look at numbers in a vaccum. He's obviously not one of the best in the league and never will be. The HOF is for players that were considered one of the best in the league at their respective positions within their era. Smith never has and never will meet that criteria. Marion is much cl...

SFP sounds like Cowherd. F the big markets. And the teams I pick have nothing to do with reality because some of them just built new arenas or in major markets. But imo, fan loyalty is most important. I'm leaving off NOLA for now, but admit that we should probably be on the list. 1. Brookly...

The best mascots/nicknames for teams are almost always based on something local. Is that really hard to grasp? Jazz is a stupid arse name for a team in Utah. Grizzlies also sucks for Memphis.

I never said that. Someone else did. Pierre is the best back on the team imo. I've said that for years and always thought he was better than Bush despite the hype and the Bushtards. Pierre is awesome. He's our most complete and important back. Even more so than Sproles imo, although it's close...

Lester is right. Simple decision. Pierre Sproles Ingram Ivory. Cadet to the PS and if someone else takes him. Oh well. He's a nice player so far but not special. Ivory is a unique talent with power and speed. I mean Joique Bell was our most impressive back last preseason and I don't reme...
