My job was eliminated and I was told Jan 29. The package ws great: Stayed on payroll with full benefits and pay until April 1st...but didn't have to work anymore. Then I got 2 weeks pay for every year of service. I had 13 years so I recently received a lump sum check for 6 months pay. Taxes we...

Here's the recipe I use. I like to use pennetteor something like a gemelli instead of spaghetti. And I usually go with a mix of parm, romano and asiago for the cheese. Parsley is optional and I'll skip it if I don't already have some on hand. Ingredients: Salt and freshly ground black pepper ...

Take my wife and move to a small town in Italy. But a nice place for under $100k and live la doce vita. We're 39 with only a little bit of house debt...enough equity to buy the Italian place in cash. Plenty of capital to live a normal life for a decade without touching the million. Spend the...

Don't forget we got Unger to really upgrade our Oline. I think we had two big goals...upgrade the D and take care of Drew. The Graham trade could do both. I'm watching the Dan Patrick show and every "expert" just raves about Williams. A potential top 5-10 defensive player in the league that can ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

I'm with you 100% on Williams. No brainer if we can get him for a 1 and 2. And I'm not against using a 3rd or 4th to jump up a little higher than 31 to grab Kendricks if the Saints think he is the best ILB by far in the draft. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

I would be thrilled if we could stay put and grab Beasley. But most mocks don't have that as a possibility. I'm in the camp of trading up for Williams or Fowler. They're the only 2 safe picks that could really impact our team. Even if it costs both 1s, we still have an early 2 and two early 3s. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
| Saints Talk|| re: Jets trying to trade Wilkerson - Dave Worth on 4/28/15 at 1:51 pm|
I would do 31 for him. We can find the money to pair him with Cam. Give up both 3s and 13 to jump up for Fowler or Williams. Take best ILB in the second. Defense completely changed and upgraded. If you get Fowler see if you can get a 3 or 4 for Gallette and draft a Guard. I know we have said...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

I was against trading up until last night. If we can grab Williams or Fowler and only give up a second and/or a tree I'm for it. If we can grab one of those guys plus a stud ILB at 31 i would consider our defense greatly upgraded. 9 rookies won't make the active squad. I'm all for maximizing our...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

"Sure things" at QB rarely pan out. Look at Leaf, V Young, Leinart, RG3 and so on. And Winson is far from a sure thing. While he has the potential to be great the odds aren't in his favor. That's true before you even consider his character. I would give him much less than a 50/50 shot at panning...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
