Reflecting A Year Later On The Marcus Davenport Selection...

Updated 07-28-2019 at 09:13 PM by jeanpierre

Making my peace, lately with lots of things lately in my life which has definitely affected my outlook on even my opinions on sports...

Take the ribbing from friends I take over the never ceasing complaining over the Davenport selection (recap: was that p*ssed as the team had turned the corner, and Sean's ego had to geaux off-script in the draft)...

So let me just get this reality out of the way - Davenport will never be worth the draft capital Sean Payton gave to select

2019 Saints Roster Outlook Offseason Needs

Posted 02-01-2019 at 09:49 AM by jeanpierre

Probably the best roster in the history of the franchise, cracks in the roster became apparent as too much trust was put in players who've failed, again, to be available...

A lack or reserve strength was exposed on the offensive line with the glaringly missing Senio Kelemete, an All-Star reserve offensive lineman. And mercurial cornerbacks after our elite starters...

As the Saints have a solid roster, it comes with implied tells to our opponents in the draft. So we'll

2018 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

Posted 01-25-2019 at 08:08 AM by jeanpierre

More To Come...

SAINTS DEPTH CHART - 2018 New Orleans Saints – Analysis

OFFENSE

QB (3) 9 – Drew Brees (FA 2018), 5 - Teddy Bridgewater (2018 via Trade), 7 - Taysom Hill

JP Analysis: Vintage Brees, at least one more year left for sure. Bridgewater's fragile health always a concern and was outplayed by a rookie with less weapons in his only appearance. Here I give points to Payton for validating a way to keep a talented developmental quarterback...

Response to NFL.com "Unpopular Opinions: Drew Brees is most underrated player ever"

If I'm doing a Top Ten List of GOAT Quarterbacks, these are some of the things that I give weight to in my mind when you factor where Brees places on such a list...

First, Brees had an advantage of the Irsay/Colts post-AFC loss meltdown in 2004/2005 of pass defense rules tweaks; while Brees' numbers jumped here, they went stratospheric post-rules changes...

By comparison, somebody like Marino had passing numbers that no one came closed to until the changes in pass defense

Post PreSeason Game Saints vs Jaguars Observations

Posted 08-10-2018 at 06:00 PM by jeanpierre
Updated 08-10-2018 at 08:16 PM by jeanpierre

Some thoughts about last night's game:
  • Though the RB, WR, OL, were "1's", Brees sat so I'm not real panicked by the blasé offensive performance...

    ...after all, the first series saw Tom Savage throwing to Garret Griffin to convert a 3rd down against the Jags "No. 1's"...


  • Brings me to this - Payton & Co isolate QB vs QB in with the same variables (i.e. plays, personnel) so they can get a better sense of these reserve QBs...
