re: Our Defense looks stacked (as for starters), but who are our backups? - higgsBoson
[quote]Only frightened about our backups at the LB position. Humber has looked pretty good at playing ILB and I think he is capable (with lots of work) of doing it all. But our starting OLBs and ILBs are very restricted in what they can do. None of them are particularly good at coverage, some are go...

[quote](1) Neither may be a legit, top-tier SEC QB this year or any year; [/quote] Harris had 4 TDs and almost 300 yards of total offense after only a spring with the team.

re: Northwestern coach blasts union effort . . . - higgsBoson
[quote]thefloydian[/quote] This makes sense on the surface but is fraught with problems. If there isn't a set salary then small programs won't be able to compete for recruits. Texas and USC can just outbid every program. Then you might have to do a salary cap problem. And you have to worry about ...

re: Official: Champ Bailey signs with Saints. 2 year deal. *Meateye with the tweet. - higgsBoson
Yeah I think the idea that a safteys and CBs roles are very different are changing. Especially in a 3-4 scheme. With 5 WR looks, Safteys have to do the work of a CB more often than in the past. I think Bailey will be rotate around the defense like Vaccaro did a lot last year. ...

re: What's everyone's expectation for Ingram next season? - higgsBoson
[quote]htran90[/quote] I think these numbers are realistic. It's obvious that we will run the ball more, but I think he falls short of this while splitting carries with Robinson and whatever rookie we draft. He played well at the end of the season and I expect him to carry that over to this year....

re: Fwiw, Kiper's latest mock draft released today - higgsBoson
[quote]so you have to be an elite receiver to be a true #1? come on people. Colston must not be a #1 than, because he sure as hell isn't elite. Yea he was pretty damn good, but he wasn't elite.

re: Should Davis Play the Five After All? - higgsBoson
I think getting a big defensive 5 and an athletic 4 who are role players but can contribute ~15 min per game is a great idea for this team. With Ryno and Davis, we don't need studs around then just guys that can contribute and play their role. It doesn't matter if AD is a 4 or a 5. His game doesn't ...

re: With the Bryd signing, is a #2 CB that big of a need? - higgsBoson
I just feel like the Saints wouldn't have signed Byrd if they wanted to sign a new CB in free agency. CB is one of the hardest positions to transition from college to pro and I don't think we can draft a guy to start next year. I want a WR in the first, but a CB in the third sounds fine to me. I thi...

re: If we can get away with a play making WR in the 1st. - higgsBoson
I wonder if with the Byrd signing we are going to try and upgrade our CBs. Both he and Vaccaro have good coverage skills. Maybe we just see if P Rob can hold down the number 2 spot or draft a CB in the 2nd or 3rd. I think WR is a bigger priority. We have almost no firepower from our offensive...

re: Draft post Byrd Signing - higgsBoson
I think WR is clearly our biggest need at this point. I understand that people don't want to draft a WR in the first, but we have serviceable bodies on the OL. We have scrubs and an aging Colston at WR. This is passing league and we are a passing team. ...

We would definitely do better in the East, but we still couldn't compete in either Conference. We have one player with superstar potential, but he's not there yet.
