    2014 NFL Saints Draft Review Part 1…

    Yeah then we drafted not 1, not two, BUT 3 players coming off major injuries. Khairi Fortt (cut), don't really know what occurred there, apparently it was the right move, but it definitely a waste. Then Ronald Powell, who at this point I'm sure he hasn't made a single tackle on one of his ten snaps, then Sunseri, despite his amazing special teams play is now hurt for the season. We didn't need another strong safety. Then we drafted one of the lowest graded players total in Tavon Rooks, who is on the practice squad. Not that we should expect much from such a low pick, but still we needed players who could have an impact for us ASAP.

    Landry over Beckham Jr.

    Watched full games of Landry (MIA) in Wk's 9 & 10 and all I could think was, "joker-saint called this one" ... this guy was a great pick for Miami in the second round ... averages something like 30yds in kick returns, great hands, runs well after the catch, in traffic, yada, yada, yada ... he is a fun receiver to watch and a big reason Tannehill is looking so good slinging the ball right now.

    MID TERM ELECTION

    Ted,

    What WODATINCA wrote is excellent. Please let me add a little more.

    All politics are local. What you perceive to be national politics are kabuki theatre. Your local government is at the heart of how healthy your business climate is and how robust your services are. The more citizens who are engaged in their communities have lower crime, higher graduation rates, higher labor force participation rates and, generally, a fair tax rate to support those services.

    Nationally, you are voting on issues that transcend your community. The federal government is about as influential on an economy as a basketball coach is to an NBA team. Good policy will help, but the industries have to be competitive and well managed to gain from good government. Bad policy will disrupt industries from working well together. Unfortunately, a great coach cannot win with mediocre talent, but talent will often overcome bad coaching. The point is that voting for a government because you think they will improve the economy is not a winning strategy. Governments are primarily for defending rights and for protecting those who cannot protect themselves (the rich really don't need protecting). You are better served voting for national service candidates who believe how people should be protected, not how they can influence the economy.

    Anyway, sorry I didn't post this before you voted (not that I have any expectation of influencing your decisions).

    Pay attention to your assemblyman and your counselpeople. If you really want America to work, make it easier for the people on the ground to get things done.

    XAN

    If you are worried about jobs -- then vote for the Dems -- because they have offered tax incentives to businesses who do not offshore jobs. Also, manufacturing jobs are not coming back to this country while labor in other countries is cheaper. Although, with 3D printers some of that manufacturing business may return to the US for awhile. Become a 3D printer operator.

    If you are worried about crime then study your local politics and vote for the candidates who have the best crime fighting records. Crime in your neighborhood is not a national issue.

    About unprotected sex: Only morons have unprotected sex. Why would you worry about them? And, we have medical treatments now for most diseases contracted via sex activity ( except AIDS but, AIDS is actually not that easy to get as long as you aren't having unprotected sex with gay men ).

    About drug use: We lost the war on drugs a long time ago. Analogously, we lost the war on alcohol ( remember Prohibition in the 1920s ). People will use drugs including alcohol, caffeine, tobacco, prescription drugs, etc. Laws will not stop them-- that is already proven. Why do you need to stop people from being stupid and hurting themselves? That is their choice -- and filling up the jails with these misguided souls is additional stupidity.

    Adultery and sex outside of marriage? Seriously? That is a concern of yours and you somehow think that our legal system is going to pass legislation to stop that? Wow. Perhaps you don't deserve to vote.

    Seriously, Ted, the mid-terms are about which party is going to control the senate as well as some important state governorships. Most of the issues that you bring up aren't national issues, except the issue of jobs. Since 2008 ( when the Bush administration left office with the entire world in a financial meltdown ) the job creation index is now at it's highest point since the 2008 financial meltdown. See this graph for the Job Creation Index since 2008: U.S. Job Creation Index Highest Since September 2008

    Obama and the Democrats have been in office since 2008. They pulled us out of the global financial crisis which was caused by Wall Street and their political cronies who were both Democrats and Republicans.

    Take a look at )

    You need to get better educated about politics Ted. About what politics can and cannot do. Then, you will be a better voting participant in our democracy.

    i guess, my problem is trust. everyone says this and that but no one seems to be doing anything to stop the bleeding. i'm not with any party. i just want us to be and get better as a society and country. i really thank you for your response and advice.

    "IRONY"

    All true WHODATS believe we're winning the bowl this year. I've predicted and have been certain we're winning the bowl every year since the early 80s. I've convinced myself that Aaron Brooks, Wade Wilson and Heath Shuler were all leading us to a title.

    MIA: Our defense has never been the same since we didn't replace Scott Fujita

    It was the double whammy of Fujita leaving combined with the decline in Vilma's health. Those two were definitely a factor in the defensive decline. Also people ragged on him, but by losing Jenkins you lost a defensive captain, which is a leadership and locker room role, it is so much more than an honorary title or empty platitude.

    The ArtiChoke

    i agree i remember all to well selling pre made bags with 0-8 on one side and 0-9 on the other. for that half time flip.

    that is one reason i am never happy with what we have, you can always do better. these times are hard to take when you have the sweet taste of victory on your lips for so many years.

    the run will end one day and the window is closing and all i ask is not to return to the cellar again.

    i understand the love for athletic freaks and all that stuff but i appears that one issue that has been over looked. it is a simple evaluation. can they play football? take the right angles and all that simple stuff.

    I think we have gotten to far away from the lunch pail mentality on defense. there is a lot to be said about a player that does nothing great but does everything else well. that is what we had back then.
