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?

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.

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...

MLB in the 2008 Draft: Round 2

3. Erin Henderson, Maryland, 6028, 244, 4.73, ILB/OLB

Linebacker Erin Henderson has great size and speed and one of the top LB’s in the nation that should be one of the top linebackers on most draft boards. He is quite instinctive and will always be around the ball and deliver some big time hits. He reads the action quickly, and is athletic and strong enough with his hands to get through blocks on his way to the ball carrier. Can beat the running back to the edge. Has decent range...

1. Dan Connor, Penn St., 6-3 233 4.67

Blue collar. That's the word heard most often when describing Dan Conner. The Penn State Senior linebacker has been nothing short of a tackling machine since the first game of his freshman year. Conner led Penn State with 145 tackles this year. Conner doesn't just wait for backs to come at him to be tackled. Conner has experience playing both inside and outside on the line backing core, both with equally impressive results. The best...
