I don't know if its common or not. My guess is yes. Scouting and the system is why it works for the Saints....
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Kenny Stills Year Two - KindOfABigDeal on 5/13/14 at 2:54 pm|
I'm not going to defend BTRDD, he's a grown man (I assume), but I understand what he's trying to say. The common theme of all those throws (except the Giants one to Morgan) is that they were all indoors. Drew is a good QB, the system makes him a great one. That's not debatable. However, his weak...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Cooks is NOT a Running Back - KindOfABigDeal on 5/12/14 at 12:52 pm|
Cooks was drafted to "win" in the passing game. Our WRs didn't win enough which allowed defenses to drop the extra defender in the box or play two high safeties. The extra defender in the box wasn't necessary to stop our run game, it was used to stop our short passing game and screen game. We nee...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Current WRs on Roster & Drafted/Undrafted Players - KindOfABigDeal on 5/12/14 at 12:39 pm|
I'm hoping the 3 year WR light bulb comes on for Toon this season. He's slightly behind schedule because he didn't have Payton his first year either. Meachem getting cut would be a good sign for the staff's faith in the young-ins. He'll be my marker on the subject.
Assuming 5, I'll predict: Co...

63 vs 32. But, if you had to get the pick AND the team, because of trades, you could argue that its actually 64 right answers. Surprisingly, I'm actually intrigued by this question....
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Backup Quarterback Should We - KindOfABigDeal on 2/18/14 at 1:37 pm|
I don't know who should be the backup, but the Saints have to pick one. Its idiotic to have three QBs on the active roster. Figure it out boys!
My guess is the Saints will let Griffin and McCown battle it out in preseason.
What's interesting though is that three years ago, I couldn't care l...

No need to restructure this year....only $18MM. They need to restructure the following year when it balloons up to something like $26 MM. I'm not exact, I just know there's a big balloon the following season. If you restructure now, those future seasons get larger....

If true about Finley, that's interesting, because they are essentially the same type player. Neither block well, they create mismatches, excellent athletes for their size, etc... What's his contract? Because that should be the market for Graham. Graham is a good player but he wouldn't put up thos...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: The Penalty Controversy at the beginning of the Second Half. - KindOfABigDeal on 12/9/13 at 11:26 am|
It would be simple to figure out and Saints probably have done some number crunching on it. What is the overall probability throughout the league of getting a first down from starting 1st and 10 vs the probability of getting it from 2nd and 3? My guess would be a much higher probability with a 2nd...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Quote from the losing QB - KindOfABigDeal on 12/9/13 at 11:00 am|
Does anyone really give a frick about Cam Newton or what he says? He's irrelevant. He's a slightly above avg QB in the NFL. This isn't college anymore. No one gives a shite about what he did in college. If he wins at this level, he'll become relevant and his antics will be viewed as something pos...

Go watch a Saints game from the late 80's and look at those dudes. I think it's over 75%. In talking with people who would know that have direct contact with players, they think its higher than that.
It's why if Goodell really cared about player safety, that would be the first thing fixed. Very...

I have no idea who's at fault, but he's trying to throw an out route to Landry who runs a stop. One of those guys is wrong. Looking at the tree, it looks to me like OBJ is clearing for Landry to run the out. If I had to guess, Landry ran the wrong route. ...

In what bizarro world are you talking about? Just because you make a lot of tackles doesn't make you a "great tackler" particularly since you're playing safety. You're supposed to be able to tackle! He's avg, AT BEST, as a tackler. And we know by...

Yesterday hurt, but the one that stands out above all the rest, which in fact is the most painful loss in Saints history, was the 49er game. The reason is that we would have played for another title. Eli wasn't winning in the dome, wasn't going to happen....

My definition of stud is the antithesis of yours. There is zero coincidence about the fact that the defense is playing better with him, Smith, and Vilma not on the field. It is zero coincidence that Jenkins actually looks like a viable player whe...

It is safer at 8-9, as I'm going through it right now. I'd actually rather him not play, but he loves it. I mentioned that I might take it away and the dude was extremely upset. He's a good kid so I let him do what he loves to do.

They're not tanking. Its the players' careers they're worried about. No one on that team will intentionally lose for a draft pick for a team they may not be on next year. Plus, the eye in the sky never lies. That would be on film and cost those guys future dollars. Doesn't happen.

I agree with the OP's notion that we can't just sit back and let the other team pick us apart. While I think we have talent, its obviously not '11 type talent. We need to dictate the game a little more and if they beat us on some big plays, then so be it. We have to be aggressive because this pas...

Kid looked good last night. Has good size, good zip, quick release, and showed he could climb the pocket at times. He flashed first round potential. I'm not saying he will be a first rounder but he certainly flashed it last night. Actually, reminded me a lot of a college Ryan Leaf, who was a dam...

2. Vaccaro. If he is assigned to Gonzalez, he has to get us off the field on 3rd down. Gonzalez is a b...
