Kareem Jackson might have been the worst corner in the league for two straight years.....he thankfully got to average last year. One of the best in the league? Only if the top 60 corners in the league drop dead tomorrow. I watch every game and I can tell you with ridiculous certainty that KJ is b...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Sorry guys, the Saints will select Kenny Vacarro on Thursday - KindOfABigDeal on 4/23/13 at 2:10 pm|
I think the 410 tackles since 2009 is more an indictment of our front seven and not necessarily how good he his. Frankly, I think he's a poor tackler. He misses a lot of tackles but the stats might not necessarily show "missed tackle", he just takes poor angles to the ball and doesn't have the spe...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Sorry guys, the Saints will select Kenny Vacarro on Thursday - KindOfABigDeal on 4/23/13 at 10:47 am|
I just can't get onboard with any love for Harper. He can't run, can't tackle, can't cover, and can't catch. Did I miss anything? People say he can rush the passer, why? He had six sacks two years ago when he blitzed every down. I'd say that's pathetic. Not to mention he got 3 in the same game ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Honest question about our safeties - KindOfABigDeal on 3/15/13 at 12:23 am|
My thoughts are they think White is going to play one of the S spots along with Jenkins. IAQ and Bush as reserves. White may play Free and Jenkins moved to strong. White was coming on as a player before the injury. If they think he can do it, I'm on board. Anything to get Bill Cosby off the fiel...

Is it possible that both teams did okay in the trade?
Are the Rockets better this week than they were last week? Yes. So how could anybody say the Rockets didn't make a good trade? And the Thunder got some possible pieces for the future w Lamb and the picks. (KMart is a dog and especially with ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Harper Looked Really Good Today on Defense - KindOfABigDeal on 9/24/12 at 8:37 am|
Yeah, nice catch on the pick in the endzone. It didn't even hit his hands, it hit his forearm. He crossed his hands like you teach a 4 yr old how not to catch. He's a balla. At least Roy Williams (DB not WR) could catch. I can't say he's the worst safety in the league, but I can't think of any ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Colt McCoy the "right fit" for Saints - Per ESPN - KindOfABigDeal on 6/27/12 at 3:17 pm|
Colt McCoy is much, much better than Daniel. He's actually a pretty good comparable to Brees as far as his game (obviously not even close on achievement)
McCoy is from Texas, smart, smaller QB (though bigger than Brees), below avg arm strength, great short game accuracy, athletic, and collegiate ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Linebackers Discussion - KindOfABigDeal on 5/1/12 at 8:44 pm|
I can't see signing a very good player with the intention to switch his position. Lofton will play Mike. If Vilma is in the league, on our team, and Lofton is healthy, he'll have to play Will. Hawthorne will play outside, not sure which position. Again, you don't sign a guy to a nice contract wi...

Yeah, I've seen you mention Iloka previously. I need to check him out.
My gut tells me we take more defensive players with Payton not being there this year to develop the off guys. Plus, without Payton in the room lobbying for a pick and Spags there to lobby, I think we take more on that side...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: More Draft Talk: Supply/Demand Probabilities. - KindOfABigDeal on 4/26/12 at 10:21 am|
It's always been BPA at a position of need early in the draft then they go BPA for the late picks. So without the early picks, it'll truly be a BPA throughout.
My question is, are there any CB/S hybrids, ala Malcolm Jenkins, that would be a good fit at #89? To me, that's the biggest need. Sa...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Tell me someone is listening to Mike and Mike this morning - KindOfABigDeal on 4/26/12 at 9:25 am|
I can tell you that in Houston on the sports radio I listen to, none of the guys believe its true. In fact, they've been pretty much dogging ESPN. I think the way the Saints have come out so strongly and denied it, they look like they're the victims here. ESPN with casual fans is still ESPN but a...

I thought I did use logic. Just because I'm not arguing doesn't mean its not logical. It's all logical.
Bottom line is, I just don't like his game. I don't like a safety that can't cover in a pass happy league. I can't stand that we paid him a ridiculous salary to do something that we don't...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Roman Harper Suspension - KindOfABigDeal on 4/18/12 at 11:52 pm|
Those are good numbers, I agree. But what got lost in this is that Weddle is actually a free, so he should have more picks. I'm not sure why Weddle is even in the conversation to be honest....
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Roman Harper Suspension - KindOfABigDeal on 4/18/12 at 11:46 pm|
What are you basing any of this on? Weddle is average, Landry can't cover you and is always hurt. Like I said, Pollard was cut by the worst pass defense in NFL history. And if Whitner was any good, he'd still be in Buffalo. He was a high first round pick and they let him go. No one does that unl...

The commonality is that all of them have been a major part of awful defenses. Weddle though can actually cover a little, he's not very good, but he's serviceable. Landry is bad, Bernard Pollard has been cut from every tea...

I don't hate him. I don't know him. He seems like a good guy. I have good friends who are awful at their jobs. I love hanging out with them. Harper is just not good at his job. But I'm happy for him that he got paid. Hopefully he takes care of the money and helps Greggie out now that he doesn...

Probowls are NOT based on anything but popularity or, at this point, whoever is willing to show up after the real stars bail.
Your definition of a safety sounds eerily similiar to my def of a linebacker or Def End.
And yes there are teams who still think like you and Greggie pooh....those tea...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Roman Harper Suspension - KindOfABigDeal on 4/18/12 at 10:55 pm|
Safeties are paid to help in coverage and tackle on the back end. Yes, they are involved in the running game as well and especially with our team because we have (had) terrible LBs. But, they are supposed to be in coverage. What kind of safety do you have if you have to hide him on passing downs?...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Roman Harper Suspension - KindOfABigDeal on 4/18/12 at 10:40 pm|
I understand the depth issue....its the same with him on the team or off it. We have one starting caliber safety. What you guys don't understand is that he's a defensive back. They're paid to cover people by definition. He can't do it. You get that, he can't do it. Anyone would have had those ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Roman Harper Suspension - KindOfABigDeal on 4/18/12 at 4:06 pm|
I'll listen to reason. What does he do well? Tackle? No. We saw that all season including the playoff lose. Cover? Uhhhhh.... Rush the passer? 6 sacks. Ok, he's okay at that. He got 3 in one game against a high school line that didn't pick him up. I don't feel like doing it, but I wonder wh...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Roman Harper Suspension - KindOfABigDeal on 4/18/12 at 8:56 am|
Harper being suspended would do us a huge favor. We'd be off the hook for that stupid salary that was clearly driven by GW. Worst signing by Loomis since he's been here. IAQ, another vet off the scrap heat or, if we got lucky, a draft pick should start.
Now that we have LBs, he's irrelevent. He'...

The NFL formula for the schedule is set. So, per the formula, the NFC South Champion plays the NFC North Champion on the road for the 2012 season. My guess, that switches for 2013. If you recall, we didn't win the division in 2010 and neither did GB, so the formula for 2011 was for the 2nd place ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: New Orleans Saints Draft Needs - A Discussion - KindOfABigDeal on 4/17/12 at 8:19 am|
The Saints like every team in the league can use depth and I think that's what this draft is about but the glaring hole on this team is at safety. I think they HAVE to draft a safety, but that would be the only position. CB is thin but they'll sign a vet at some point after the suspensions.

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Draft Talk: Safeties - KindOfABigDeal on 4/13/12 at 4:57 pm|
I think we need a safety more than you think. A safety that can cover. Harper is a major liability and it will get worse with Spags. The only reason Harper was relevant for us is that a-hole blitzed him so much. Other than that, he's bad. I'm not going to dog the guy, but he's bad. Jenkins sh...
