re: Would a high-speed rail system work in the US? - bilblues
Would love to see the economics of how this might work between Baton Rouge and NOLA. Could probably have stops for commuter parking in BR (maybe Seigen), Gonzales, LaPlace, Kenner (airport), and downtown NOLA. Gotta be worth it to avoid going back and forth across the Bonnet Carre...

re: Anybody who’s tried CBD oil, does it do anything? - bilblues
Since I've been using it, I have way less arthritis pain in my joints. Used to have to take prescription anti-inflammatory drugs regularly... I actually use the oil daily and use a CBD ointment occasionally....

Was Stevens Headed to Carolina? - bilblues
Wondering if the Saints pulled the trigger on drafting Stevens in the 7th because our team felt he was going to sign with Carolina as a UDFA because of his relationship with Joe Brady. If so, keeping him from becoming a Taysom Hill type weapon for a division rival with a creative OC is not a bad ...

re: Navy’s top brass want fired Theodore Roosevelt CO restored to command - bilblues
This is what happens when political hacks jump the gun and act before allowing military leaders to investigate and make recommendations. Trust the people who have lived this life and led sailors and soldiers for more than 30 years. With few exceptions, the military is pretty damned good at pol...

re: Next years outlook with Brees back - bilblues
Totally agree with this statement. Sean is an above-average play caller. But, he's not a great in the playoffs, where you have to commit to the run. As Saints HC, we've played 15 playoff games. We're 8-7. We've rushed for 100+ yards 6 times, and we're 5-1 in those games. We've been outru...

If they required him to throw 2/3 of the time like Sean asks Drew to do, he’d be a disaster...

re: The conversation about Brees. - bilblues
Is it an issue of needing to move on or needing to craft an offense around him that doesn't require him to be superman each game. Drew's getting old and old quarterbacks need 1) a tight end they can relay on and 2) a running game so that play action is more effective. Yesterday, we barely trie...

re: Payton to blame - bilblues
Refusing to run the ball in the playoffs killed us again. I think we’re the only playoff team this week that had fewer than 20 rushing attempts. Teams in the playoffs simply rush Drew damn near every play cause they know we’re probably not gonna run. Minnesota has 40 rushing plays against o...

re: 49er Fans In The Dome - bilblues
Definitely a lot of 49ers in attendance...maybe more that Pittsburgh...hard to tell. Cause the Niners wear red, it certainly looked like more. That being said, the Saints fans were loud and it was seldom that the Niners fans could be heard. Honestly, there were stretches of the games where the Sa...

re: I was in Manitou Springs, CO today and I met half a dozen people from Louisiana - bilblues
It’s a pretty cool little town. They actually have a gumbo cook off contest during Mardi Gras and a walking Mardi Gras parade. Way more people than I would have imagined. Also for the people who might be interested in that sort of thing, the closest recreational weed shops in the Colorado Springs...

re: I’d stop putting highly paid skills players on the hands team - bilblues
Isn’t it the front line’s job to block the rushers on the kicking team so that our guys set up to field the ball only have to catch and secure it? Why on every onside kick do we have players from the kicking team running free through the front line?...

re: Does Lamar Jackson's success influence Payton's plan in the future? - bilblues
I don't think we need a "dual threat" quarterback. But, I really think in the future, quarterbacks will need to be able to throw from the pocket and hurt teams with his legs when things break down. Wilson, Prescott, Rodgers, Mahomes, Watson, Murray can all do this and I think it's the way to go. It ...

re: Florida eliminating Common Core - bilblues
Common core often gets a bad rap. There is a big difference between curriculum and standards. Common core is a set of standards that outline what kids should know and be able to do in each grade level in ELA and math only. The standards were driven most aggressively by republican governors (espec...

re: FPI and ESPN's parlay specials thinks NO's defense is worst in NFL moving forward - bilblues
Also gotta wonder if our stats against the run are reflective of playing only one team (Cleveland) that is running the ball well. Cleveland - 5th Tampa - 31st Atlanta - 28th NYG - 27th Baltimore - 22nd Wash - 20th ...

re: 28th in Sacks - bilblues
No great pass rushers on the block for sure, but see the Giants traded Damon Harrison to Lions for a 5th. He's a great run stuffing DT. I can't help but think adding a guys like that to the D-line would help free up the other guys. ...

28th in Sacks - bilblues
Like the EA pickup... But, while a lot of the focus is on improving the secondary and they do need help, the help they need most is a D-line that can put more pressure the QB. We have too many good QBs coming up on the schedule to think that any DBs are gonna have success if we can't make them...
