Recent History, Revisited

Posted 03-13-2012 at 01:32 AM by jeanpierre
Updated 03-13-2012 at 01:41 AM by jeanpierre

Many of us overlooked the Vicodin scandal a few years ago that included, among the fallout, a dismissed Director of Security who countered with a lawsuit for said result...

We were, after all, basking in the glory of Lombardi Gras.

Consequently, the Saints used some fancy legal maneuvering and the League Office to dodge a bullet by means of arbitration; the league office was not amused by this...cleverness...

There is a great deal of information on the...

Defense Analysis, Part 1

Posted 12-14-2011 at 07:02 AM by jeanpierre

The Drew Brees-led New Orleans Saints are Superbowl Championship material with the only liability, albeit a major one, is its Defense that gives it up faster and in more ways than an Overseas Military Base whorehouse.

While the turnover rate from the 2009 season was an aberration, one of the most telling failures of the defense is the big plays given up after mistackles.

Let's change things up, starting with the secondary - the Saints have invested two first round picks,...

Posted 12-06-2011 at 08:57 AM by jeanpierre

After this weekend's games this is where positions will fall...

Right now, I'd say...

02 - NO Saints 12-4
03 - San Fran 49'ers 12-4
04 - New York Giants 10-6
05 - Atlanta Falcons 11-5
06 - Detroit Lions 9-7

Round 1 - Wild Card
Detroit geauxs to San Fran and gives a good fight but Stafford throws too many int's rather than stick with tried and true Megatron....

Saints First Round Picks > FAIL!

Posted 12-06-2011 at 07:24 AM by jeanpierre

When you look at the first round picks (see below) I see major disappointment and a big reason why the Saints have limited their success...

2002 Pick 13 Donte Stallworth, WR Tennessee

This guy didn't make the news for success for the Saints - this guy killed someone with his car, served less than a month and still committed crime by stealing an NFL salary as a receiver; Could have saved future draft picks and took Shockey who went next...

2002 Pick 25...

2009 NFL Saints Draft and Personnel Moves

Posted 05-03-2009 at 09:06 AM by jeanpierre

Saw the thread entitled ‘Meaningless Draft Grades’ while waiting on call at the office and the noodle began to percolate...

Grading a draft is part of being a football fan; it is an example of our western culture's checks and balances, along with continuing to buy the Saints Product based on a team's performance...

However, draft grades are not final, static; rather, they change over time and are dynamic.

This is what makes being an NFL fan, well, fun......
