re: For the "Let's throw Harris to the wolves and see what he can do" crowd.... - Gregoire on 9/23/14 at 1:04 pm
Here's the problem as I see it: they know that Harris is the long-term solution at QB. Jennings has had an extra year in the system, so they feel more comfortable with him. The problem is not this year. I think that everyone felt like the team wasn't in a situation to compete for a national title...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Why Malzahn will never win a championship at Auburn as head coach - Gregoire on 1/20/14 at 2:00 am
Problem is that now with two spread offenses in the West, teams are going to recruit and gameplan against it. Bama usually gets huge, fast guys. LSU gets quick, rangy guys. There's a reason one of them won by double digits against both spread offenses this season, and it's the same reason LSU...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
re: Do you still consider Brees an elite QB? - Gregoire on 1/12/14 at 1:35 pm
The guy has been either first or second in the league in yards and TDs for 3 consecutive years. This is despite the fact that their defense has largely sucked during that period, and that their wide receivers would get pulled over by the cops for going too slow. Give him the receiving corps that M...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: How do teams get compensatory draft pics? - Gregoire on 4/27/13 at 10:19 pm
Essentially by drafting well. Teams get compensatory picks when they lose more players to other teams than they sign to their own... with some sort of differential in there to compare the size of contracts. While most Saints fans point to our success in later draft rounds and undrafted free agents...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

If he turned down 18 million a year, then he's being unreasonable. He went on the radio right after the playoff game and claimed that he was going to have a contract negotiated that allowed for the team to have flexibility in free agency, then turned around and demanded 5 million a year more than t...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (4)
re: Interesting WSJ analysis of recruiting - Gregoire on 2/2/12 at 6:09 pm
Most 5 stars are physical freaks. Freaks normally get by in high school because their talent level is so ridiculous that they don't have to worry about technique. They also are not used to being criticized, and most don't take coaching well. The further you go up the ladder, the more you have to ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

The offense was terrible, and only part of it had to do with QB play. Playcalling and offensive philosophy is a major negative with this team. There's no reason that a team with the kind of talent that they have should be scoring 38ppg, especially when you consider defensive and special team scori...
