I read an article that said they may do a festival reunion tour in 2014. If true, and they don't play either Jazz Fest or Voodoo, then it will be a huge failure for New Orleans.
I've heard Santana for this year, not sure how reliable that is though....
| More Sports Board|| re: Best NFL Prospect Bridgewater vs Manziel vs Mariota - mm2316 on 12/10/13 at 9:53 am|
I think Mariota will get labeled as a "running/read option" QB, but he has a pretty good accuracy, and is a great decision maker. He often gets compared to Kaepernick, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him have Russell Wilson-like success. I haven't seen enough of Bridgewater, especially against de...

| Pelicans Talk|| re: Asik trade rumors: Houston targeting Eastern Conference - mm2316 on 12/9/13 at 11:47 am|
I definitely don't want to trade Anderson for Asik, but does it make sense for us to take on a high paid Center with Davis and Anderson both on the roster? On paper it would be nice, but I'm not too sure how the rotations would work. One of the three would most likely be sitting in crunch time, and ...

No, the team LSU beat by 13 points in ONE game. I guess LSU losing to Bama this year by 21, or in the NC by 21 means LSU "plays fraudulent, inferior football", right? I know it's fun to shite on Oregon on a LSU message board, but come on......

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: I think this is the year we need to trade up in the first round - mm2316 on 12/3/13 at 4:01 pm|
I think getting a vet Center in FA is the way to go. No time to waste on a rookie, we need someone who can step in day 1 and play.
Here's a list of FA Centers next year. Any shot Goodwin comes back?

I've seen him twice, and he puts on a pretty good show. The first time I saw him in 2005 was with Herbie Hancock in Memphis, which was pretty incredible. You obviously aren't going to get that John Mayer on this tour, but he's still a hell of a musician....
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: If last night's game had been played in New Orleans - mm2316 on 12/3/13 at 3:08 pm|
It's hard to say. Part of our problem was the crown noise and the inability to communicate on offense, which they would obviously have the same problem if they played in the Dome. But we had so many issues last night, that it wasn't just the location of the game.
I know the stadium was designed t...

I almost hate having this conversation now, because it's definitely an end of the season topic, and it isn't close to that point yet, but... 3 biggest needs are, IMO, DB first, then OL and WR are a close 2a and 2b.
