    Early 2008 Draft Thoughts

    It's hard to say where the Saints should go in the draft. From watching them play a few times on Television, there are a lot of holes to fill. An offensive tackle would be a good choice. However, I believe Payton and company should concentrate on the defensive side of the ball. Particularly with the front seven. Or should I say front 5 because Grant and Smith are set at the end positions. A DT and LB's are needed badly. The middle of the defense is just bad. Yes, they make plays occasionally. But not consistantly enough. It may seem like a CB would be the obvious choice here, but if there was any kind of pass rush, the CBs on the roster would be adequate. Opposing quarterbacks just have way too much time to pass the ball. So, Maualuga or Connor would be my choices in round 1. If they are off the board, then one of the CBs mentioned would be fine. A RB could be taken in the later rounds. I think the Saints need to give Pierre Thomas a shot. He doesn't get enough carries. He may be the answer to pound the ball up the middle.
    On the offensive side of the ball, an OT is needed to shift Brown back to RT. If a suitable replacement can not be found, then Rucker seems like an interesting pick. He's a very big target. He'd be good across the middle. But like I said, the Saints need to concentrate on the defensive side of the ball in the first round or two.

    What to do on the OL?

    I want Faneca. This is my personal mission for the offseason. I will start petitioning the Saints' FO and Faneca personally. If the signing goes thru, you all will have me to thank.

    On Alleman: I personally saw him snapping the ball in Training camp this year. I'm not sure if that's an indication of things to come, but he was definitely being evaluated.

    For The Love of The Game.

    yes it was a good defensive game on a rain soaked field. The field was the worse I have seen. That is what happens with the system of sod rotation during the season. Just pray it does not rain before it takes hold. But in this case it did not happen. So the field dictated the game. I would play in the mud before I would play on that field.
    As for the winless Dolphins. They have a good team. Most of there losses have come by 3 points or less and with a backup QB, RB and injuries through out the team during the season. I have made some good money on the dolphins and the points this year. So was I surprised by the score? NO. I pick up my winnings again today and will laugh all the way to the bank. Again.

    Saints Holding Onto 37-Year Old Record.

    I was watching it on a black and white (not gold LOL) tv.

    If he established the record in 1970 and this year is 2007, wouldn't that be 37 years? Just curious?.

    Unless you are referring to the record Dempsey broke, which was 56 yards, which held for 17 years.

    Glamore Position in Flux for 2007

    The rumor started with the the vikings last year and the local papers talk about Minnesota trading a RB for picks in order to get him. It has resurfaced again. Rumor out of Arizona is this, Larry does not like the new offensive game plan. Too much running. So take it for what is, a rumor that Larry has not supported publicly. So who knows? Larry ain't saying.
    The number of picks is one thing I wonder about. But he would put an end to any questions of who is number one.
    I wonder if Drew has Turner's ear about the saints. That would be interesting if he is needed. But he really is unproven.

    Good Post Kev. Not ready to do back flips with the choices we have sitting out there. First I've heard about the Fitzgerald deal. What's the news behind that rumor? Now if that happens....back flip time!

    Problem for the NFC and the New Orleans Saints

    Very good post Euph!

    I miss the 9ers rivalry, the Rams, and the Falcons rivalry has lost it's luster. I would have to say our next rivalry will be with the boys. We spanked them last year, and I know they want another shot at us. Indy and NE, are the only two teams that have a current and hated rivalry.

    Again, very good post.

    Good post. Philly is the closest thing to a rival, but they're waning.

    I'd say the Cowboys are the best barometer. They have a lot of young talent and play a slightly different brand of football. There's also the recent history where the Saints have won 5 straight with a prime-time ass-whoopin' that will not be soon forgotten by either team. Plus, if you look at the conference, those are the only two teams that seem poised for any future success.

    Very true. It would be nice. It just makes it more exciting. But you're right, who would it be. I still think,after last year, the closest we might have are the Eagles. I was at the playoff game, it was a show. Great game for both teams. And believe it or not the Eagle fans were fun to be around. I even got invited to Philly.
    Good post Euph.

    NO Reason to Panic over the OL

    If it's left up to me, I think, with the health problems of Deuce, we need to consider a bruiser back from somewhere. Free agent or draft,it really doesn't matter to me. Linebacker still seems to be a problem too. There are a lot of ways to go in the offseason.

    So true. Nice to have you back in your seat and not rocking the boat.
    Jack is the test match up to see if we are back. Indi did not run all over them, There D is still great and Jacks coming back into the house. So they will be ready. I worry about the St. Louis game and a TRAP game but the 0-4 start may have taken care of that. That could turn into a barn burner. Houston is still tuff. If we can get 2 out 3 we will be sitting good in the division stretch run to follow. Sweeping all three teams is key.

    "Eyeing the schedule the rest of the way, the schedule may be one of the easiest of any possible playoff contender. Jacksonville, St. Louis, Houston, Carolina, Tampa Bay, Atlanta, Arizona, Philadelphia and Chicago hold a combined 26-41 mark with only the Jaguars and Panthers above .500."

    Well, at least the o-line hasn't been the big problem lately. Thought they have played better.
