| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Jim Mora Coaching Tree - scottynola on 4/15/14 at 1:51 pm|
I wrote a blog post today, part of a series of coaches who succeeded without sticking to a single system. I included Mora because he won in New Orleans with a great defense and so-so offense, and in Indy with a great offense and so-so defense. One item I mentioned was the number of future head coach...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Should we?? Alex Mack - Center - scottynola on 3/18/14 at 5:02 pm|
The only way for this to happen is to negotiate a sign and trade type arrangement with the Browns. Some think that is against the NFL rules, not technically, the Patriots worked out something like that with the Dolphins for Welker a few years ago. Basically the Saints would have to negotiate a deal ...

If Mosley can be that fast LB who can range the middle of the field and cover TE's and backs on passing routes then I am all for it. We desperately need someone like that. But I'll be happy with a CB or WR....

I saw that on NOLA.com and came over here to check and see if anyone had comments on how it might effect recruiting. It opens up extra scholly's, and I think this is a good sign. I kind of read the tea leaves on which athletes are being recruited heavily, and compare that to remaining scholly's a l...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: What gets a guy to the NFL? (Nature vs Nurture) - scottynola on 1/22/14 at 7:49 pm|
Coaching only gets you so far, imo. Same with nature, honestly. If you look at NFL players they all have the genetic potential to develop the kind of bodies the NFL requires. Of all the guys with this DNA, of the ones who actually play in HS, excel, work out, and get enough exposure to get into foot...

The best athletes can go three and out. If you want LSU to have the best athletes, then expect more three and outs. It should be a point of pride that we get more guys to the NFL quicker than other teams, and as a result there are more opportunities for talented young players to get on the field an...

[quote]I'm often puzzled by Brees' inability to reach deep receivers when he can throw strikes on outs. [/quote]
A lot of the time I think he intentionally underthrows. Brees likes back shoulder passes more than any other QB I've seen, it's really his signature move to me. Also, as much as I hate...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Why wasn't Anthony Jennings recruited more heavily by other schools? - scottynola on 12/23/13 at 10:01 pm|
I see a lot of the "Drew Brees lacks arm strength" meme here and I honestly think everyone repeating that is, well, repeating it. If you watch Brees throwing in games he doesn't have elite NFL arm strength but he has a strong arm and can make long passes and get the ball into tight coverage. Anthon...

[quote]Jennings doesn't have a weak arm[/quote]
He really does. He is never going to play QB in the NFL. He showed great poise in the drive to beat Arkansas, but you could see the ball floating a bit, he just doesn't have the arm to really drive it in there. I like him, I'm glad he made the play...

The Saban rumors are completely out of control, I honestly have never seen anything quite this nutty. If he goes, I think it may help with 1, maybe 2 recruits this year, then after he still recruits Louisiana guys like he always has and we complain like we always have. But seriously, this is getting...

You know it wasn't just missing on big name recruits. The evaluation was also weak during the Mike Archer and Curley Hallman years.
