    Sympathy for the Vikings

    The only NFL team and fans that I hate are the Falcons team and fans.

    Pre Combine Draft Wish List

    Got to have a defense that can rush four and require the opposing quarterback to throw the ball by the league average of 3.2 seconds...

    Our secondary will get amazingly better - fast.

    If Minneapolis loses the Vikings it will be a shame. It's an old organization identified with the city. But Minnesota should be ashamed that for the past 10 years their legislators have ignored or delayed the stadium issue.

    Defense Analysis, Part 1

    All your points are good ones, but I think they lack a lot of the basic skills to play the DB position. The tackling seems to be the biggest issue, I am not sure why it is so hard for them to understand that just "hitting" some one is not tackling" As my HS coach used to say "you have to wrap em up". I like the big hits just as much as the next guy, but I prefer the tackles even more,
    Secondly, they seem to be out of position or caught "looking in the backfield" to much. Not sure why, and most times it is on obvious passing plays.
    Thirdly, I do not think they are physical enough at the line, I was always taught that you have 5 yards to "contact" the receiver before it is pass interference. So why not knock the guy on his butt. If you are worried about getting beat, well maybe you should not be in the game.
    Finally I do think that we need to get more pressure on the QB's. They have way to much time to throw the ball. More pressure will help on the back end.

    Maybe we can look at a potential big play wide receiver in the middle of the draft. It seems like our big play/quick strike ability has been lacking.

    WR Jarius Wright ARK 5'10" 180lbs
    63 catches 1029 yards 11 TDs

    Round 3 = well we can go a few ways here.. have a couple of Favorites
    1) Michael Brewster C Ohio St.. we seem to have good luck drafting Ohio State players..2) Keenan Robinson OLB Texas..3) Robert Lester S Alabama... might be a good spot to pick this guy up if he's there..

    I will add rest of picks at a later date...
    We definitely need to fill a linebacker position. I honestly believe we've never replenished from losing Scott Fujita....

    Pre Combine Draft Wish List

    Devin Taylor*, DE/OLB, South Carolina is one Jr i hope comes out.
    Weak secondary for the complete package. once again Jr are the key and even then most should stay in school for another year.

    there is

    Winston Guy Jr., S, Kentucky
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 210.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.49

    Sean Baker, S, Ball State
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 200.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.55

    TE Coby Fleener is tempting. i could accept 2 TE in the draft

    Chris Rainey hmmmm i look at him to go higher

    Penn State: Does "Fanhood" blind?

    apparently joe pa didnt know exactly what happened. he went to his superior to ask what needed to be done just like any employee at any job would've done

    to say he was required to do more is all based on morality and not legality

    fwiw sandusky has not been convicted of any crimes and has not admitted to any wrong doing.....you cannot fire someone in good faith without knowing all the details

    if a company is willing to fire employees without knowing all the facts that shows people that no matter how long you've been a member of an organization and no matter how many great things you've done.....a negative allegation is more than enough to not support you in any way whatsoever and completely drop you from affiliation you have with said organization

    regardless....joe pa deserved and earned the benefit of the doubt over his countless years of service to penn state university.....at least until all the facts were known

    Pre Combine Draft Wish List

    I like the Derek Wolfe pick. Here's what I've been hoping for...
    Round 2: T DJ Fluker (If he comes out)
    Round 3: LB Donta Hightower
    Round 4: DE/DT Jared Crick (Derek Wolfe works for me too)
    Round 4: TE Coby Fleener (The assumed pick for Bush)
    Round 5: S Robert Lester (Should fall after torn ACL)
    Round 6: RB/WR/KR/PR Chris Rainey (Wanted to draft him for a couple of years to replace Bush)
    Round 7: WR Quinton Patton (Assuming he comes out. Could be a gem.)

    Picking up a pass rush tweener sounds good to me too. A Vinny Curry-type in the middle rounds.

    Saints First Round Picks > FAIL!

    This is a great post! My friend and I often laugh about drafting of our two franchises. Mine (Saints) are awful and his (Vikings) are really good. They have picked up some really good guys over the years.

    I almost totally concur with everything you have posted in this entry. You have to be critical in all honesty. Looking specifically at the 'Brees era' I think there have been some questionable picks.

    A lot of people call Reggie a bust. I'm not comfortable with that. I think he offered a lot to the Saints, changed the way the offence was programmed. His biggest problem was that he couldn't really offer what a traditional RB could. Sometimes you just wanted him to go north and south and between the tackles and I always felt he struggled with that. Let's be honest, what Sproles has offered in 12 games far outweighs what Reggie ever gave us.

    Meachem. I like him a lot. Decent WR but he's not a first rounder is he? At the end of the day, the truth is that someone like Brees only needs someone who can run a half decent route with some pace and he'll find him.

    Sedrick Ellis. I think he's an 'ok' DT but he doesn't make any big plays or give me massive confidence that he can change a game. We need him on D simply because we do not have anything else. Would look at getting him some premium support or replacing him if necessary very soon indeed.

    Malcolm Jenkins. I like the comment on him 'hitting a ceiling' but I actually like Jenkins. He's shown great versatility and at times he's shown some real big play potential. There have been too many times where I have seen a big play absorbed because our corners 'didn't get safety support' which is disappointing but he's still learning and I'm not uncomfortable with what he is doing.

    Patrick Robinson. Awful First season. Truly awful HOWEVER he is probably one of the players I have thought was most improved this season. Totally different player. Yeah he's not perfect. He's given up some stupid yardage and sometimes looks to jump routes that aren't even happening but I'm reserving judgement.

    Cameron Jordan. Feel sorry judging him so quickly but when you're a first rounder, people expect something soon from you. He has just not really done anything has he? At no point do I ever think 'Wow this kid is getting some pressure on that QB'. Many times, I wonder if he's even on the field? He needs to improve quickly and his next season is very important. If he doesn't step up, he could be in trouble of busting pretty quick.

    Ingram. I am a fan of Ingram. He is getting far too much criticism. His first half of the season was 'ok' but not stellar. However he has improved in recent weeks and I am loving how he compliments the running game. People are comparing him to Chris Ivory but I think he is different. How he fits in with Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles is superb. He's been gaining more and more yards, showed he can receive and offers yet another dynamic. I think he could be very impressive. The problem is, everyone is comparing him to Demarco Murray already. That kid is having one hell of an introduction but that's a ridiculous comparison.

    So my advice to the Saints Draft Team is to look at some of the franchises who do it better, and steal their notes!
