re: What would be worse: Raptors or giant eagles roaming the earth? - Rand AlThor on 5/22/16 at 1:06 pm
Eagles would be worse. I think we could just build really big walls and keep out raptors pretty easily. The only way to keep away eagles would be to stay inside all the time, that would suck. Plus I think it'd be easier to hunt the raptors....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Mexico Is Having A Hard Time Coping With Trumps Victories... - Rand AlThor on 5/22/16 at 11:49 am
We have some distributor customers down there, along the west coast. Down there in late March, just talking to people, they are absolutely terrified. And this isn't like peasant-types... These were just regular people like you and me in a nice middle class area. They really think Trump is gonna make...

re: First look at New Orleans 2019 Super Bowl bid logo - Rand AlThor on 5/22/16 at 9:53 am
Pretty sure ATL probably has some handshake agreements for getting at least one SB since they built their stadium. We don't really have a chance here. It's unfortunate. ATL is such a shitty city for the Super Bowl. Terrible nightlife(it's ok if you wanna drive out a bit...), awful traffic, very u...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)

re: Mettenberger sees a better opportunity in San Diego - Rand AlThor on 5/22/16 at 9:30 am
[quote]Maybe the Saints don't like Mettenberger's skill set. Maybe they don't think he has what it takes to be a successful NFL QB. Maybe they like thier group of QBs they hand picked to be here.

re: Saints working out some WRs, including Hakeem Nicks - Rand AlThor on 5/18/16 at 11:12 pm
Listen man, I know you melt hard about cooks but here's the truth: he isn't a major bust or super bad, but he is not the WR1 we all wish he was. He just isn't. But I think he will be a high-volume gadget player for a while here. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

FWIW he says this stuff every offseason. This isn't just a fan trope- he definitely hates the Saints. He mentions us offhand very often when talking about what NOT to do. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]Pretty much this. If a 1st round pick isn't an immediate all-pro caliber starter, then he is a bust. Players cannot improve from year to year. It just doesn't happen, according to some. [/quote] You were calling Grayson a bust yesterday. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Starting Front 7 - Rand AlThor on 5/15/16 at 4:21 pm
Maybe, but you have to assume that he fell for a reason. Something that media guys didn't know. Maybe not a character or health concern but maybe a major flaw in his ability somewhere. who knows? If Onyemata plays up to his physical potential he will end up being a worthwhile pick in the end. He ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Titans, Raiders, Jacksonville, Vikings, Baltimore, Miami, or SD - Rand AlThor on 5/15/16 at 2:58 pm
Of these teams, I think the Vikings probably have the best chance. That team is pretty well stocked, they just need Teddy to take a few steps which he may or may not have in him. I really like the potential of Jacksonville and Oakland. We'll see if they can get it done. I don't see them as s...

re: Starting Front 7 - Rand AlThor on 5/15/16 at 2:55 pm
I've seen Jenkins eat up two OL on his own plenty of times. If he isn't doing it we're in trouble switching to a 4-3 because we have no other DTs on the roster who are even close to the size we need....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Starting Front 7 - Rand AlThor on 5/15/16 at 1:34 pm
The problem with that is that we don't have anyone to play NT. Both Rankins and Fairley will play the same position (3 tech). The other DT has to be bigger and eat space, which Jenkins is pretty good at. He's shown some stuff. He looked pretty good in spots last year. I think they'll give hi...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
re: Spinoff: Most Cursed Stretch in Sports History - Rand AlThor on 5/15/16 at 1:30 pm
I would go more specific with Cleveland: their return in 1999 to right now. They've been so absolutely bad in that period, it's almost unbelievable. It's also hilarious that the club that was the Browns, now the Ravens, has won 2 superbowls since leaving Cleveland, and in that same time period th...

re: Florida Times Union expects the Saints to let Brees play out contract - Rand AlThor on 5/15/16 at 1:27 pm
I don't understand you people. Brees contract could be 50 million a year and it would still be worth it to keep him. There is nothing we could buy with the money we spend on Brees that is going to get us anywhere near the level we are on with him :lol:...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
