The Butchers’ Toll
Part 1

No one can tell me we played the same system as in 2006. By the end of 2006 the fans and the rest of the NFL knew how to kill the Saints’ defense. Attack it. So in 2007 the Saints went for a safer approach and decided it was safer to read and react to opposing offense and try to minimize the bleeding. Well that did not work. The Saints’ Defensive blood had to be cleaned for the field every Sunday. Napoleon would always ask for “What’s The Butchers’...

The Butchers’ Toll
Part 2

Now what did the Saints do?
Let’s face facts here. Youth is the main need for our defense. We rented a Defense now for two years and they were not really any spring chickens out there. The Saints’ went all out in FA and the draft for defense. Yes we did add another group of aging vets to one year contracts in FA. Well that is our standard mode of operation. What was surprising was the signing of Randell Gay , Bobby McCray and the trade...

2008 could be the BIGGEST year yet

This is Sean Peyton’s third year of building a team for the city of New Orleans. The 2006 draft and FA period that may go down as one of the best in NFL history. Sure 2006 was an emotional year that may have led to an additional victory or two. The 2007 season was a year that left most of us wondering. What happened? Well 2008 is going to be the year that the saints and their fans will put the horse back in front of the cart. We, the fans, had the...

Big Time Gamblers?

Posted 05-23-2008 at 06:03 AM by hagan714

The thread about the the Saints and the big time gamblers they are this year has forced me into a long rebuttal. One I thought was better for the blog than the thread. We talk about the reach of walking wounded the saints have signed in 2008 and compare them with the FA signed Philli and Carolina. Including the draft moves of others. I think we need to step back and see this team in the proper light.

MLB in the 2008 Draft: Round 3

7. Philip Wheeler, Georgia Tech, 6019, 248, 4.66, OLB/ILB

Philip Wheeler will not be the biggest or strongest linebacker of this class. However, despite those concerns, Wheeler has great athleticism. Wheeler is a solid cover man for a linebacker and will be able to match up well with most backs and tight ends in the league. Smooth, natural and a great athlete with loose hips. Wheeler is a strong player who can shed blocks and stuff the run with seeming ease. He has good quickness...
