re: Do you even want this team to make the playoffs ? - TigerBait1127
[quote]Why? It would be embarrassing and a "one-and-done". [/quote] You don't think the Saints could beat a team like Detroit in the Dome? We'd be favored. Who knows what would happen in the playoffs, Drew Brees is one of the greatest playoff QBs to ever live...

[quote]Given our downward trend of not capitalizing on offensive opportunities, I think a quality punter is pretty necessary. [/quote] We've only punted 35x this year, the least in the NFL and have the best 3rd down % in the NFL. That is in a down year offensively for us. That is the issue. S...

[quote]I'd be shocked if they draft 2 guards though. Especially with the needs on defense[/quote] So would I, but honestly I think that we should be looking to FA for defense unless we find an ILB we love. Luckily, guard is a position with plenty of options via the draft and FA without a huge cu...

[quote]As far as the fate of Evans and Grubbs, one of them should go and the better of the two should be kept at a reduced rate.[/quote] I honestly don't think we should keep either one of them at this point. We have a chance to have a very young, athletic, and cheap offensive line next year. ...

[quote]Even at 1.25mil in savings, you lose 2.15mil in dead money. It just isn't as worthwhile when we lose more in dead money than savings. [/quote] That is the wrong way to look at it IMO. It is a sunk cost. So you'd have to ask yourself is that risk worth $1.25 million towards another play...

[quote]and no body could get pressure on Flacco. [/quote] I thought Junior had a hell of a game rushing the passer. That was the difference in the game though. We were absolutely gifted a pick 6 b/c of pressure applied by Junior and we could make the easiest play imaginable. ...

[quote]He gifted them 7 points. Spotting a team 7 points in any game is a pretty big deal no matter how well you preform the rest of the game. [/quote] Right, but even with the interception it was still a great performance. His interception rate for the game was great despite facing pressure...

[quote]nd you need to then spend 420k on another punter that is rather unknown. You'd save only 800k, but sacrificing a solid punter for an unknown.[/quote] Are you sure about this? Only the top 51 players count against the cap and we'll have several at $420k that don't count. So we'd save ...

[quote]I hope not. He's a weapon. [/quote] We punt the least amount in the NFL and we're talking about 3-4 net yards difference, assuming the rookie we bring doesn't have a cannon. We're talking about 9-12 yards a game difference or having that money to spend on oline or a pass threat...

[quote]He sucks too [/quote] Not really about that. He's great at NET punting I just don't think a punter's value is equal to a key contributor on offense or defense. The difference between our NET average at #3 and the the 15 team is 3 yards/punt Then you have to factor in our offense....

Will the Saints cut Morstead this offseason? - TigerBait1127
He's been a great punter for us for a while now. I started this thread in the offseason and was ripped apart for it. His contract: 2015 - $3.4 million cap hit. Save $1.25 by cutting him 2016 - $4.45 million cap hit. Save $3.25 by cutting him 2017 - $4 million cap hit. Is it worth payin...

re: Looking at the 2015 cap, who may stay, who may go, who may re-sign? - TigerBait1127
Contrary to popular belief, we're in pretty good shape especially compared to last year when we added Byrd. Sure up the defense via free agency with the money saved by cutting the guards. Draft 2 guards and pick 1 up in FA. Its an easy position to replace and an easy position for rookies to pick u...

[quote]Like draft more cornerbacks...oh wait. [/quote] Honestly, we shouldn't draft any corners IMO. We're terrible at it. Go FA for the #2. Cut Jahri and Grubbs, and use that money on the defense. Draft guards. It is the easiest position to learn in the NFL...
