re: Positions drafted in 1st RD by Saints that would anger you - mm2316
I agree, signing Goodwin would be a different situation. I'm just playing devil's advocate about a Center at 27. We also have to remember we only get the rankings that the media gives us. If the team has Richburg rated in their top 40, I wouldn't be upset to use 27 to grab him and fill our last glar...

re: Positions drafted in 1st RD by Saints that would anger you - mm2316
I'm not a fan of Bridgewater at all, so I'd still be upset with him at 27. Kind of surprised at people saying Center. Sure it wouldn't likely be BPA, but it is our most glaring need. If the FO is set on Richburg, and think he is a day 1 starter and future Pro Browler, but were worried about hi...

re: Our Defense looks stacked (as for starters), but who are our backups? - mm2316
Our depth isn't too bad as of today. For DBs Bush, Robinson, and White is a nice group. LB, depending on how our base D looks this year, it'll be something like: Butler/Haralson, Humber, and Dawson. If Reddick and Johnson can add to that, it will be a nice bonus. DL is in decent shape with Jenkins...

OT, S, QB, RB, DT/NT -I think another pass rusher would be nice, being that Butler is pretty much an unknown, coming of an ACL tear, and on a 1 year contract. -I'd rather get a Center after the 2nd, but if we "reached" for one in Round 1 (ie like Dallas last year) and he became a legit start...

re: Justin Gilbert visiting Saints - mm2316
I think it's a little more than "due diligence in case he falls to 27." They may be looking into moving up if he's available at the right spot. We've never been afraid to move up and get the guy we want....

re: Jimmy Smith (Times Pic) bringing the heat on Demps - mm2316
Yeah, he could have really made a point by just focusing on things like the Gordon contract, the lack of SF (re-signing AFA), rotations, or even keeping Monty as a coach, but he completely wiffed. Even bringing up minimum deal guys that we called up after all of the injuries is just stupid. Our rost...

re: Stiemsma has been waived, Melvin Ely signed - mm2316
Besides Stiemsma being terrible, I wonder if there was an incident that led to this. It isn't like Ely is some young guy brought in to get a look at over the last couple of games. While I'm glad I don't have to worry about Stiemsma being in a Pels jersey next year anymore, the timing is strange. ...

Agreed, they have a great front 7. Their DBs on the other hand.... ETA: Their WRs are awful as well. Last year I thought they needed to upgrade their WRs and DBs they had.

I guess we have different ideas of what "stacked" is. I forgot they re-signed Shields, so they're better at CB than I thought, but Tramon Williams is 31 and on the last year of his deal. They still need safety help. [quote]Simply put, the Packers need more impact plays from their safety position....

re: Former Florida State center Bryan Stork to visit the Saints this week. - mm2316
If they're looking to the draft to fill the hole at Center, then I would prefer we go with a higher rated prospect. If we sign a vet like Goodwin, then I don't mind waiting later and picking up Stork to let him fight it out with Lelito....

re: DLP signs with the Bears - mm2316
I'll just agree to disagree. I think if DLP beats out Lelito, a UDFA Guard out of Grand Valley State, then I would keep the player that I need this year. We only kept Tennant for two years. It's pretty much impossible to say as fans, 2 years later, that the reason Tennant was kept around for 2 ye...
