| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: The Saints have great players.. - higgsBoson on 9/29/14 at 8:09 am|
I really think the franchise is in rebuild mode. Our best players on offense are past their prime, and the defense is off. The players there should be hitting their prime but aren't clicking. I definitely think we need another Rush OLB and a CB.
The problem is that we haven't drafted well. 2013 wa...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Any CB's out there that are realistic for trade? - higgsBoson on 9/16/14 at 9:51 am|
The three safety system doesn't work if your CBs aren't playing tight to the WRs. They have to knock them at the line so the safeties have time to pick them up. On numerous receptions, you can see Lewis and P Rob barely touch the WRs off the line. I don't know if that's what they were told to do or ...

Yeah, it's obvious that the OLine struggles in pass protection. They are much better when blocking for the run. Another reason why it makes no sense that we pass so much.
We just have to face it that Bre...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Losing our 2nd Round pick for two years. - higgsBoson on 9/14/14 at 5:46 pm|
It's not the reason, but I wouldn't mind us having two 2nd round CBs to try out. One of them could have panned out. We might not have taken a CB though. The fact is that we made some bad decisions. Ingram is playing well, but we could have gotten other RBs in later rounds and used the pics we have u...

I like the optimism, but we won't beat many good teams if our D plays like this. Atlanta' defense is terrible.
It's the first game and it's a rivalry. It's not the end of the world, but our secondary is bad. ...

I wouldn't go that far, but six safeties would not surprise me at all.
We're going to run three safeties over 50% of the time this year. ...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: How will the new Power 5 rules change effect recruiting? - higgsBoson on 8/8/14 at 2:43 pm|
I think this could make the game better honestly. If players can legally get paid, it will make cheating harder. Why risk getting caught taking under the table money as a player when you're already getting paid? The risk isn't worth it anymore.
ETA: and I don't think it destroys the integrity o...

[quote]Apparently some of you A&M folks have really bought-in to the recruiting ranking fever. Lsu and Bama laughs at you man.[/quote]
It's the truth. Most first round draft picks this year were 3 stars. And teams play above their ranking every year. It's about coaching and talent scouting.
