[quote]as for avoiding hits, he's 5-9 180 for fricks sake. More WRs should do this.
Yeah, hard to argue against that especially since he did most of his work in the middle of the field and safeties are just looking to kill people....
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Lance Moore is gone - Zoombop on 3/7/14 at 11:08 am|
I think he'll resurface in Detroit, Chicago, Oakland, or Buffalo with Detroit being the most likely. All four of those places have Sean Payton disciples at the helm, and I'd say Detroit is the most likely place since he'd probably get the opportunity to take the role in the slot immediately consider...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Saints non exclusive tag Jimmy - Zoombop on 3/1/14 at 9:11 am|
It means that a team can have Jimmy by signing him to a deal and sending us 2 first round picks. We would have the option to match the contract offer. It's basically making him a super restricted free agent. ...

In light of the news of the salary cap increases, this should be the ideal time to extend Cam Jordan and Junior Galette.
Both of them really had breakout years, and are about to hit their primes. We have reason to believe that both players will be even better next year and in the following years...

Innovation man. That's what this team needs. Karl didn't win in the playoffs because he didn't have any stars on his team, and the only one he did have was Melo who wasn't a mature enough player at the time. He maximized players abilities by putting them in positions to succeed, and he did a great j...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Top Free Agent Cornerbacks - Zoombop on 2/28/14 at 7:43 am|
If Brandon Browner wins his case against the NFL and is reinstated off of the year long suspension, I think he would be a perfect pickup. The guy was really good for Seattle the past few years. ...

Smallwood is probably in for a tumble down the boards after running a 5.03 (or there about) 40. He could probably be had in the 5th round now. From everything I've seen of him, he plays with good speed and I think those times are a fluke. ...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Draft Hypothetical - Zoombop on 2/18/14 at 6:40 pm|
Interesting that several of you would prefer Yankey. All indications I've seen lead me to believe he's a fringe first round pick, early second rounder. Whereas Martin is almost a lock to be top 20 and that's at LT, his second best position.
I'm also in the line of thinking that the team should dr...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Draft Hypothetical - Zoombop on 2/18/14 at 3:57 pm|
Say Zach Martin falls to No. 27, and the top safeties and corners are off the board. Would you select him and have him compete at LG or RT? Maybe even C.
If he shows well enough at the guard spot, which many people seem to believe he can be an All-Pro guard, would you put him there and make Grubb...

I'm going with 2013 as well.
I think 2009 defense was better than 2010 defense, too. The turnovers were amazing. That's what we need again. I'd love to have a safety with sticky fingers playing center field again....

The center position worries me. Mike Triplett has said that the team does not intend to overpay for dlP. I'm not sold on Lelito as a replacement at center much less a player in the NFL. He got eaten alive when we played Arizona and was just okay against a bad Atlanta defensive line. If the team is t...

I think Bush goes into the season as the a starting safety. However, considering how much we played with 3 safeties this year, I think Delmas would be a great addition to the back end. Especially if he comes inexpensively....
