re: Way Early General #12 pick talk - Zoombop on 1/11/16 at 5:37 pm
Why do people think Dennis Allen isn't coming back? Payton all but confirmed it in his press conference last week. Also, it's likely that they will continue to run a 4-3 since that is what Allen has always run and what they ran this year. That being said, I think Andrew Billings belongs in the...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: What big time FA do we go after? - Zoombop on 1/8/16 at 4:49 pm
[quote]I want my starter to play one position and be damned good at it. Not serviceable across the board. [/quote] Absolutely. It all depends on how the staff views Leary compared to Lelito or Kelemete at the guard position. If he's only as good, then I doubt they bring him in since he's lacking...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

He looks so much like Durant in his appearance and playing style. Yet, he doesn't seem to have the same strength. That could just be from the fact that he's only 18 though....

re: What big time FA do we go after? - Zoombop on 1/8/16 at 4:38 pm
I've liked Leary as an option since early on in the season. I think he's a solid, if unspectacular player and could come at a decent rate. The question is whether the coaching staff thinks he is an upgrade over Lelito or Kelemete because both of those guys played very well to end the season. Kelemet...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Was Meachem the fastest WR we've had in the Saints Brees Era? - Zoombop on 1/8/16 at 4:35 pm
[quote]Cooks's shuttle times are ridiculous. NFL records for times dating back to '06 (for as long as the combine database has been kept). So it is false to assume he is slow through his cuts, and only a straight line guy.

[quote]Watson played very well, had a lot of nice drive sustaining catches. I want to add onto that and eventually replace it. [/quote] Agreed. There is a good chance Watson retires, however. If the Saints want to replace him, I would say Dwayne Allen is the closest thing to him and he brings s...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Brandon Coleman - Thoughts? - Zoombop on 1/8/16 at 2:19 pm
Gates is one of the best to ever play the position, so it's hard to hold that against Green who is a solid player in his own right. I don't think he's that good, but he's likely to be the top TE available on the market this year which should rule the Saints out. If they're serious about bringing ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Brandon Coleman - Thoughts? - Zoombop on 1/8/16 at 1:09 am
I would say the offense did fine with those two as the top pass catchers. Antonio Brown, arguably the best WR in the league right now, is not the biggest, fastest, nor strongest guy. He's crafty as hell and because of that he wins on the outside. You don't need big, strong, fast receivers on the out...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Brandon Coleman - Thoughts? - Zoombop on 1/7/16 at 6:15 pm
If you want a guy to replace Colston, Tyler Boyd from Pitt is the guy. He's big and can win on the outside, but makes his living in the slot. Snead and Cooks are both crafty and fast enough to hold down the outside, Boyd would bring back the seam balls. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
re: So now that we know Payton is staying, what coaches will be let go? - Zoombop on 1/7/16 at 11:55 am
I think Dennis Allen is staying, so the Lovie Smith pipe dream can end. If driveman thinks Vitt could be gone, then that would be awesome. He is trash as a LB coach. Obviously I would get rid of Vitt, Bill Johnson, and McMahon, but I feel like we say this every year. Offensively, I would s...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Stephone Anthony & Reggie Ragland - Zoombop on 1/5/16 at 12:30 pm
Floyd fits if we run a 3-4. Otherwise he's a very undersized DE or miscast as a SLB much like Kikaha. Based on the linebacker prospects available in this draft, should the team decide to switch back to a 3-4 (they ran a 4-3 base this season), there are plenty of pass rushers to choose from. I am ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Stephone Anthony & Reggie Ragland - Zoombop on 1/5/16 at 11:03 am
Donald is a true 3-tech defensive tackle and the best interior pass rusher in the league. Billings has made his name as a run stuffer who is still learning how to rush the passer. I would be fine with him because at this point the team has neither a pass rusher or run stuffer in the interior....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

re: Stephone Anthony & Reggie Ragland - Zoombop on 1/5/16 at 10:16 am
I think this team is better suited for a 4-3 defense. If they don't think any DL are worthy of the 12th pick, my top choices are Jaylon Smith, Myles Jack and Darron Lee. All of them are amazing athletes that can rush the passer, run with tight ends and RBs, as well as play the run. Go watch Lee's hi...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
Tom Coughlin - Zoombop on 1/4/16 at 2:14 pm
He has said that he does not want to retire since moving on from the Giants. What would be your thoughts if the Saints traded Payton to New York for a 1st rounder and hired Coughlin? He has two Super Bowl rings and a track record of making more with less. He's a future Hall of Famer with some goo...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (13)
re: Is Treadwell the only acceptable offensive pick at 12? - Zoombop on 1/4/16 at 10:22 am
Myles Jack is considered a top-10 lock even with the injury. Jaylon Smith was considered one as well before the injury, but who knows where his stock sits right now. As for the question posed by the OP, I would say yes to Treadwell being the only acceptable 1st round offensive selection. The onl...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
